Turn-Key Controls 2 vs. Soccer United 1: On a dry, sunny evening at Kelowna City Park, both teams welcomed young, new faces, despite missing some key players. A 0-0 deadlock at half time went contrary to the wide open play with near misses and key saves from both sides. Fittingly, Soccer United went up 1-0 at the 55th minute mark when Craig Rasmussen's cross from the far right into the 6 yard box was headed in by Andrew Hughes. Being quick learners, Vernon's Turn-Key took Control with a couple of headers of their own. At the 65th minute mark, John Orton got off his Camel and onto his horse and headed straight up the middle, where a cross from the far right was nicely directed into the net. 10 minutes later, Turn-Key crossed the ball from the far left to an uncontested Volker Otto at the far post for an easy header. Despite seeing their lead slip away, Soccer United pressed with numbers late in the game but was unable to get a quality shot away for a deserved tie. United played the perfect host, making Turn-Key's drive to Kelowna worthwhile, as they took 3 points home with them.
The new look Turn-Key squad started off the season with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Soccer United. Turn-Key, playing without several key players while also trying to fit in four new players, found it hard to get into any rhythm in the first half. Miscommunication on both ends of the pitch led to wide open opportunities back and forth, but somehow the first half ended without any score. Just when it looked like Turn-Key was settling down in the second, Soccer United opened the score with a great header after a perfect cross from the end-line. Turn-Key, inspired by Man of The Match Ian Butler, regrouped and started their best spell of the game resulting in several chances. Newby John Orton showed his killer instinct when he headed in a ‘Nice’ cross from roadrunner Jeff Nice halfway through the second half. Shortly after, Turn-Key scored their second goal in a similar fashion: Jason Beck broke through on the left and his inch-perfect cross was met by Volker Otto who beat his marker with a powerful header. From that point, Turn-Key controlled the game and cruised to victory. Rookie Graeme McGee played a faultless game while ageless Mike Adams made several key interceptions at the back line.
