The Lake Country Youth Soccer Association Boys U11 Thunder cruised to a 6-1 victory over the Kelowna Youth Soccer Association Bandits.

Brendan Moore was a tour de force as he overwhelmed the Bandit’s defense with a stunning five goal performance.

Tommy Parish put in a brilliant effort throughout the match and chipped in with a beautiful left-footed goal.

Angus McManus and Parker Davis also deserve honourable mention as they were stalwarts on defense.

Girls U10 Thunder

Thunder shut out the West Kelowna Vipers in a 2-0 victory at Beasley Park Sports Fields.

After the first goal, Sarah scored an insurance goal while Kianna put herself in great position to narrowly miss making the third goal.

Kyla, Hanna and Taysia had some powerful plays on defense during the game.

Thunder worked well together to dominate the game and made good efforts to keep the play in the opposing end of the field.

Girls U10 Lightning

The Lightning girls tied 1-1 with the Mission Roadrunners.

Goalie Jasanna played well under pressure during the second half following goalie Geneva who managed to keep them off the score sheet during the first half of the game.

Katie scored a strong goal to start off the game, Tamyra showed good ball handling skills while Jessye covered the field well to aid her team’s efforts.

All girls played hard and fast in what was a physical game that tested them all. They provided a particularly strong wall against an indirect free kick in the box thus managing to avoid a second goal being scored by the Roadrunners.

Boys U-10 Chaos

The boys team won its third consecutive game on Saturday at Beasley Park.

John Henderson scored midway through the first half, and Jordan Barker played shut out goaltending to give the Chaos a lead of 1-0 at half time.

The visitors from Rutland Warriors got a close range shot past second half goalkeeper Parker Thomas, who later made a fine save right on his goal line to hold the score at 1-1.

A solid defensive job by all the players kept the game close until John Henderson scored his game-winning goal with about five minutes remaining.

The usual hard work from the Chaos boys once again helped them to their deserved win.
