Lake Country keeper keeps game close for TOFC soccer club

Season underway for rep soccer players in the Okanagan

Thompson Okanagan Football Club teams were back in action last weekend, kicking off the fall session of the B.C. provincial soccer season with teams taking on Surrey United.

And Lake Country soccer player Joella Koblischke didn’t take long to get warmed up and appear to be in mid season form.

Playing with the TOFC’s 97 girls, Koblischke was solid in net during action from last weekend when her team narrowly dropped a 3-2 decision to Surrey United.

With her club holding onto a 1-0 lead early in the second half, Koblischke made a number of confident stops which kept Surrey off the board until the 60th minute when Surrey tied the game 1-1, setting the stage for a tightly contested finish to the game.

Surrey went ahead 2-1 in the 70th minute but TOFC stormed back two minutes later with a great solo effort from Johnson who outpaced the Surrey backline and finished with a shot across the goalie low into the corner to tie the game 2-2.

Unfortunately for TOFC. Within four minutes however Surrey exploited some space out wide and scored on a ball into the box to make the final score 3-2 for Surrey.

The team is back in action this weekend
