Pepsi popped in goals as Pine Plumbing plunged on Saturday.
Team Pepsi took first with a 4-1 win over Pine Plumbing in the final of the Whitehorse Rapids Over 35 Men’s Soccer League at the Canada Games Centre.
Pine Plumbing was the favourite going in, having placed first in the regular season ahead of Pepsi in second.
“The season went pretty well. We had a slow start and then mid-season we started doing really well,” said Pepsi captain Phil Jackson, who scored twice in the final.
“We were a little short with people being away and whatnot, and we had a few injuries, but overall we just got better and better as the season went on.”
Pepsi advanced to the final in a 3-2 semifinal win over Quest Computers with Keith Maguire scoring the game-winner in the last minute of the match for the win.
Maguire also scored in the final on Saturday and Jeremy Raymond scored for Pine Plumbing.
Quest Computers went on to take bronze in a 6-1 win over Klondike Business Solutions on Saturday before the gold medal match.
“They were short a couple players, so that made it a little lopsided in our favour,” said Quest goalkeeper Patrick Jackson. “We had a good year too. It’s been a good year all around for the over-35 league. Lots of camaraderie, even though there’s competition, and it keeps getting stronger every year.”
David Rayo scored twice for Quest as teammates Mark O’Brien, Robert Bousquet, Jim Connell and Guliano Rayo contributed individual goals.
Dale Cheeseman scored for Klondike.
Yukon Brew defeated Assante Financial 4-3 in the fifth-place match on Saturday.
