Kelowna United's Morgan Hodge tries to fend off a Vernon opponent in Thompson Okanagan U14 girls soccer action on Sunday afternoon at the Parkinson fields.

Productive weekend on the pitch for Kelowna United

A look at some of the scores from TOYSL soccer action last weekend

• U11 girls

Kelowna United-Burn—5-0 over Kamloops Black, and 6-0 over Vernon.

In the second week of the TOYSL season, the Burn’s leading scorers were Abigail Taneda, Brooklyn ‘Cookie’ Michalkow, and Lauren ‘Boomer’ Voros, each of whom netted three goals. Special mention must be made of Jaidyn McGrath’s back heel pass to Cookie, which led to the final goal against Vernon, with Abigail Taneda nutmegging the Vernon keeper after a fine cross into the box by Lauren ‘Lolo’ Schmidt.

Kelowna United Fusion 3 Shuswap 0

KU started strong, opening the scoring two minutes in when Sophie Lachapelle crossed into the area where Kassidy Day finished on a one-time shot.

With about 5 minutes remaining in the half, Lindsay Notte found Rylee Semeniuk moving to space, who then fed Kassidy Day for another one-time shot that found the back of the net. At the 48th minute of the second half, Lindsay Notte fed a perfect give-and-go through ball to Kassidy Day who scored again, giving her the hat trick. Goalie Sophie Gibson recorded her second shut-out of the season.

Kelowna United Crushers blanked Vernon United 3-0. Two goals from Madeline Middlesteadt and Skye Neale got United off to a quick start and close to the end of the first half Ashlyn Eisenkrein chipped one over the Vernon keeper who was hampered by the sun in her eyes. It was 3-nil Kelowna at half time and that’s how the game would end.

Kelowna United Crushers downed Kamloops Blaze 4-1. Kelowna’s Jessye Large broke the offside trap midway thru the first half and scored to make it 1-nil Kelowna. Right on the stroke of half time, Kamloops tied it up 1-1.

In the second half, Kaley Krivoshein took the game by the scruff and scored a second half hat-trick to make it 4-1 Kelowna.

Kamloops White defeated Kelowna Crushers 3-0. Although they had some good passing, Kelowna was unable to put together a successful drive. The determined Kamloops squad scored three unanswered goals to take the game.

U14 Girls

Kelowna United 0 Vernon United 1

Both teams played a good, fast paced, high tempo game. KU did get some scoring opportunities, but had difficulty building their attacking plays under Vernon’s high pressure defending.

• U15 Girls

Kelowna United 11 vs Revelstoke 0

U13 Boys

Kelowna United 3 vs Revelstoke 2

Down 1-0, KU answered when Karson Andrew placed a through ball to Christopher VanDenHeuvel who turned and released a shot into the top left corner of the net. KU went ahead a few moments later on a feed from Tanner Peters to Carson Whitley who buried his shot behind a diving keeper. Revelstoke tied the game, but the victory was sealed for KU when a well-placed corner kick by Reid Herron was hammered into the back of the net by Cameron Sorensen.

• U14 Boys

Kelowna United 1 Penticton 1

Following a fortunate bounce in the first minute of play, the KU14 boys were off to a 1-0 lead against the Penticton team. Despite dominating the majority of the game play, the KU squad was unable to find the net for another goal. Penticton came back in the second half to tie up the game.

• U16 Boys

Kelowna United 3 Vernon 2

With the score 1-0 Vernon, United responded as Kyle Martin carried the ball up the field and tapped it to Foster Warren who centered it to Josh Clark for the goal. Vernon replied to make it 2-1, but Kealan Cangiano battled back, passed the ball up the field to Morgan Gonzales. He moved it to Foster Warren who capitalized to tie the game. With about ten minutes left in the game, Ilan Michaeli sent the ball up the field through the defence to Warren who was able to deke the goalie to score the winner.

Kelowna United 0 Kamloops 1

Kamloops was a tough opponent for the smaller Kelowna team. Kamloops dominated possession but the gritty United defense, combined with Corey Bennett’s amazing goaltending, kept the score at 1-0 for Kamloops.
