The TOFC U13 girls are off to a good start in the 2015 B.C. Soccer Premier League season

Home pitch wins for TOFC

Thompson Okanagan Football Club U13 girs and U14 boys both winners at Mission sports fields

Two Thompson Okanagan Football Club  made the most of homefield to defeat visiting Fusion FC in B.C. Soccer Premier League season last weekend at Mission sports fields.

Here’s a look at the details:

• U14 Boys

TOFC 2 Fusion FC 0

The TOFC U14 boys came away with their third win of the spring season this past weekend against Fusion FC.  TOFC’s Edvin Holok opened the scoring in the first half, capitalizing on a deflection from Nate Portz’ free kick.

Fusion pushed hard to score an equalizer but TOFC’s keeper Isaac Boehmer and defenders Nic Bigattini, Karlen Speiser, Adam Calne, Brandon Frechette and Maguire Lauridsen were able to keep them off of the board.

Late in the game, Lucas Hicklin received a pass from Gregor Smith for a breakaway run and maneuvered past the Fusion keeper for a second goal.  Final score: TOFC 2 FFC 0. The U14 boys are in action next weekend against Mountain FC in Vancouver.

• U13 girls

TOFC 2 Fusion FC 1

The TOFC girls eighth game of the season was played on a sunny day in the Mission.

TOFC, much to the coaches delight, played their best team game of the season that frustrated the visiting team.

The locals jumped out to a two-goal lead with goals from at the 19′ by Sophia Siebel (Kamloops) and at the 41-minute mark by Tori Hauptmann (Vernon).

Siebel, TOFC’s leading scorer pulled the trigger after a series of excellent passes from Aly Foster, Selena Arima and Kiana Onyango. Her finish was emphatic and her ability to get the early goal has been helpful in our last 3 games.

Hauptmann scored the second TOFC goal after a great individual effort by Aly Foster that put too much pressure for the Fusion’s back line, won the ball and got the ball to Hauptmann who buried an emphatic shot under the bat.

TOFC played the remainder of the game with a balanced attack and defensive shape where a number of players stepped up and played games of their season including: Sophia McQuarrie (Kelowna), Aly Foster (Kelowna), Kayley Krivoshien (Kelowna) and Selena Arima (Kelowna). Rylee Seminiuk (Kelowna) and Lindsay Notte (Kelowna) continued their strong play at the centre back and centre midfield positions, respectively.

The lone Fusion FC goal came at 61 minutes on a goal that was the result of a turnover. Sophie Gibson (Kelowna) stopped then first break away shot but could not stop the second.

Gibson continued her excellent distribution and shot stopping between the pipes with 13 saves including a beautiful reaction diving save in the final minutes of the game to keep a preserve the third TOFC win in a row.

After the game, the TOFC u13 girls remain firmly in 4th place (13 points) in the EAPL standings. They now have 4 wins, a draw and 3 losses. They are just 3 points behind third place Coquitlam Metro Ford FC.

Next weekend is a bye weekend and their schedule resumes on May 3 in Surrey against the last placed Vancouver Island FC.
