United U15 girls blank Penticton

A look at some of last weekend’s United and Junior Heat soccer action.

The Kelowna United (Greenhough) U15 girls earned their most convincing win of the young Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League season, shutting out Penticton 4-0 Sunday in Rutland.

Ashlyn Eisenkrein made a great pass to Kaley Krivoshein for the opening goal 10 minutes in to make it 1-nil. In the second half, Krivoshein was hauled down on a breakaway, with the resulting PK goal putting Kelowna ahead 2-0. Penticton came close to scoring on a penalty kick after a collision between a hard-charging keeper Tayshja Clark and the Penticton attacker, but Tayshja made a big save to preserve her clean sheet. Krivoshein, with her third of the game, and Eisenkrein rounded out the scoring for KU.
