Mark Wasylyk tapped an easy one in from a scramble near the goal line minutes before the half.

Orton finished his hat trick early in the second half and then produced the nicest goal of the day on a brilliant speedy run up the field by Jeff Nice, who put it nicely back into the 18 to Orton for the tap in.

“The entire Turn-Key team played extremely well when it came to the task,” said Pogos’ manager Kerry Zubot. “New Zealander Damian Adams played amazing with consistent headers up the field and dynamic defending.

“Duane Dennis deserves special mention as well, with his gritty talented play, just missing himself on a few glorious opportunities. Keeper Mike Moorlag made some excellent saves when needed.”

Moorlag was only beat by a quick Kelly Sherman free kick just outside the 18.

Turn-Key won the regular season at 14-0-2 with Browns second at 12-0-4. Nice pulled the triple crown after previously winning the NOSL title with NET and the Kelowna 35+ crown with Vernon Kal Tire.

Rogers nodded in a Rob Hulstein corner just two minutes in with Ian Murphy making it 2-0 soon after. Rogers pushed it to 3-0 at 55 minutes with Mark Wasylyk replying a minute later, beating Kal’s Pete Richter on a breakaway. Nigel Clack converted a PK after a hand-ball call on Kal, who responded at 75 minutes when Hulstein beat three defenders and fed Chris Odermatt. Kal’s Rob Parkin headed in a late Jim Sparrow corner.
