Pulido scores goal of the season
Simon Pulido was in fine form last weekend in over 35 soccer action.
He not only led the line well and scored two goals, but his second was a thing of beauty that will be remembered for many a year. Pulido received the ball with his back to goal, he turned two defenders inside out, then faked a shot before sliding the ball into the corner of the net. Even the opposition had to applaud a fantastic piece of skill from a man who has graced the league for many years.
That goal started a comeback that almost took Pepsi to victory, but they had to settle for an entertaining tie 6-6 with Klondike Business Solutions.
To balance out that great goal, Rob Bousquet scored an own goal for KBS that only a mathematician would know how it went it. Other scorers for Pepsi were Danny Macdonald (3) and Dale Chesseman, while Jim Brown (2) Charles Mcleod (2) and Arnold Hedstrom scored for KBS.
Murphy is at it again
Irishman Eric Murphy saved all of his Christmas wishes for this game as he scored an unbelievable six goals as Tony’s Pizza overwhelmed Yukon Brewing 9-4.
Murphy, who is on a scoring streak that anyone would be proud of, punished some comical defending, scoring at will throughout the game.
The Pizza boys looked fresh, while the Brew team looked like they had one too many turkey dinners, although they were missing a couple of key players in defence.
Helping Murphy pile up the goals were the returning Adil Khalik, Ben Mercier and Gord Barker, who spent the break practising his shooting.
Getting on the score sheet for Yukon Brewing were Chris Stacey, Jeff Ford, Gord DeBryun and David Rayo.
