Lake Country soccer report; member remembered

The May long weekend afforded the Oldtimers teams a week off from league competition.

The May long weekend afforded the Oldtimers teams a week off from league competition but the Kelowna Mens and Womens leagues continued for the Lake Country Soccer Club.

Mens division one team, LCSC Woody’s Pub, tied one and lost two of their last three games which slipped them down the standings to sixth spot.

The LCSC Athletics picked up their first win of the season but two losses sees them mired at the foot of the table in 10th place of the division.

A win and two losses saw the LCSC Old Milwaukees drop to seventh place in division 3A but a 6-0 victory over Brewsers in the Royal Cup sends them through to the third round of the Cup Competition.

And finally, the LCSC United team had a win, a draw and a loss in division 3B which moved them up to fifth place, just six points out of second.

In the Kelowna Womens Soccer League 2nd division, the LCSC Viper Lightning team’s struggles continued as they dropped three straight games and now sit in ninth place.

It was a difficult week for the Lake Country Soccer Club as they learned of the sudden passing of former player Gareth Poole. Poole was a member of the Over 35 mens team and played a pivotal role in the 2007 championship winning squad.

On the field, Poole was a fierce competitor and highly talented midfielder but off the field, his loyalty to the club and hilarious, dry sense of humor made him unforgettable to teammates and opponents alike.

He will be greatly missed as a teammate and as a friend.
