KU U13 Boys Warriors (Yann) – 2          Vernon United U13 Boys –  3

The Warriors met Vernon in a very close game. Vernon scored just minutes into the game; not discouraged, the Warriors pressure paid off 20 minutes later with a pass by Jaeke Schlachter to Jack Millikin, who looped the ball over the goalie into the net. Vernon scored again halfway through the second half.  Kelowna responded with a pass by Riley Woolfall to Mikey Krause, who buried the ball. Unfortunately, Vernon used one more scoring opportunity, winning the match with a header.

KU U15 Girls (Greenhough) – 3       KU U15 Girls (Manning)  – 1

The friendly rivalry between the two KU U-15 Girls teams continued this weekend when they met for their final game of the regular season. The teams were quite evenly matched throughout the game and both demonstrated excellent ball control and movement. KU Greenhough scored first 3 minutes into the game on a textbook passing play. Lindsay Goett fed the ball to Ashlyn Eisenkrein who made a great cross to Madison Dyck who got through the defenders and found the back of the net. KU Greenhough scored again a few minutes later. After a melee at the middle of the field, a pass got through to Madison Dyck who bagged her second goal of the game. KU Manning got on the scoreboard on a high shot from Llala Joseph that sailed over Tayshja Clark’s finger tips 28 minutes into the first half. At half time, the score was still 2-1 for KU Greenhough. KU Manning came very close to tying the game ten minutes into the second half when Llala Joseph rattled a hard shot off the crossbar. KU Greenhough finished off the scoring with a couple of minutes left in the game. After a corner kick, there was a scramble in front of the net. Lindsay Goett was able to pick up the loose ball and toe punt it through a forest of legs to finish the game 3-1.  KU Greenhough takes on Shuswap this coming weekend in their final game of the regular season.

KU 18 Boys – 5            Vernon United U18 Boys   – 0

The KU U18 Boys played their final game of the regular season against Vernon United U18 Boys on Sunday.  KU’s dominance in possession paid off when Ben Lommer opened the scoring in the first half followed by another goal by Taylor Piche.  The KU team continued dominating in the second half resulting in three more goals from Quinn Large (1) and Mason Chidlow (2).   Kelowna had many other great scoring chances, but were unable to find the back of the net.  Vernon continued to battle hard, however a solid performance by the KU defenders, as well as the Goaltending of Kevin Kentel kept them from scoring. 

The team has a bye next weekend and will meet up with Vernon once again for playdowns the following week which will determine the league champions.  KU U18 Boys have already been awarded a spot at Les Sinnott Memorial Boys Provincial Cup being held in Vernon from July 6 – 9th.
