Under-13 girls intake hammer Coastal FC, while other teams struggle in B.C. Premier Youth Soccer League

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.
