In one of the highest scoring games of the season, Mobile Maintenance’s momentum ebbed and flowed, but they eventually had a big second half, retaking the lead and defeating Northland Beverages 19-11 in U-13 soccer Wednesday.

Mobile came out sharp, edging up to a 4-0 lead but soon fell into a 6-6 tie as Northland’s Ryan Chippett opened the scoring for his team and teammate Megan Lanigan went on a five-goal streak. With 34 seconds left in the half, Chippett put in his fourth goal to give his team their only lead of the game.

“Our team started to pass, started to play together,” said Northland coach Kelly Lanigan, speaking of the first half. “Then in the second half we fell apart.

“There was a bit of dissension in the ranks; they fell apart. In the last three, four minutes they came back together and got a goal.”

In the second half the Mobile squad put the game in a stranglehold, scoring 10 consecutive goals, including five straight by Sam Burgis, who played in net for the first half.

Other big scorers for Mobile were Kieran Morehouse with five, Noah Von Flotow with three and Jeni Pierce with three.

“She’s awesome at soccer,” said Burgis of Pierce, who was named MVP. “She’s just so speedy. She scored a hat trick, she got an assist and she complimented other players.”

Snatching the MVP credit for Northland was Shara Kearney.

“She played outstanding in net the first half,” said Lanigan. “She let in only nine of 100 shots.”

Coldwell shuts

down Medicine Chest

There’s a reason why passing in from the wing to a striker in front of the net is practiced so much in soccer: it works.

In an 11-0 shutout performance by Coldwell Bankers over Medicine Chest Pharmacy Wednesday in U-11 soccer, the majority of the goals were scored in this fashion.

“We work a lot on passing with the team and we were passing really well today,” said Coldwell coach Lorne Harris. “We concentrate on positioning—they were playing their positions really well and they were shooting really well.”

Topping the list for Coldwell were Graydon McDonnell with four goals and Logan Harris with three

“Both of them are really strong players and both of them did really well today with their shooting and passing,” said coach Harris.

Scoring the fourth goal of the second half was Zakary Endress, who earned the MVP nod because of tricky shot.

“He had a beautiful goal and a beautiful volley,” said Harris. “There came a pass through the air and he volleyed it—he kicked it right into the goal. It’s quite hard to do and he did it very well.”

Akshay Malhotra was handed the MVP honours for Medicine Chest.

Other scorers were Frejean Pourier with two and Yuvanty Pourier with a single.
