Thompson Okanagan soccer teams hit the pitch in Kelowna last weekend as teams took to the Rutland Sportsfields for games against Coastal FC.
And a couple of the youngest teams had solid performances for TOFC in BC Soccer Premier League action.
The TOFC Under-13 Intake boys came away with a resounding 4-0 win against Coastal FC while the U-13 girls Intake battled to a 1-1 tie.
In the boys game, Shawn Kostiuk (W. Kelowna) opened the scoring from a corner kick two minutes into the second half, followed ten minutes later by Edvin Holok (Kelowna) who broke free and found the back of the net for a 2-0 TOFC lead.
Lucas Hicklin (Kelowna) in the 56th minute, and a final goal scored by Adrian Delgado (Kelowna) in the last minute of the game rounded out the scoring. Keeper Isaac Boehmer (OK Falls) notched his first shut-out of the year after replacing Jordan Thorsen (Kelowna) who went down early in the game with an upper body injury.
U-13 Intake Girls
The TOFC U-13 girls intake club played to a hard fought 1-1 tie with Coastal FC in an evenly played match that saw both teams get several chances to score.
TOFC opened the scoring with a solid effort by forward Yvonne Manwaring (Kamloops), whose shot from 25 yards out sailed over the Coastal keepers’ head into the top corner for a 1-0 lead.
Coastal FC tied the game later in the first half as TOFC keeper Charlie Kampman (W. Kelowna) kicked out the initial shot before Coastal put home the rebound for a 1-1 tie.
The second half saw a lot of back and forth action including several key saves by the Coastal FC keeper who turned aside several scoring attempts by the surging TOFC forwards. The match ended in a 1-1 tie.
