Outlaws pull out a win over Monashees

In the North Okanagan Soccer League’s Men’s soccer on May 6, the Salmon Arm Outlaws took on the Vernon Monashees in their first away game

In the North Okanagan Soccer League’s Men’s soccer on May 6, the Salmon Arm Outlaws took on the Vernon Monashees in their first away game of the year.

The first part of the game was controlled by Monashees with nice passing in the middle of the field, but a mistake on the back line gave Outlaw striker Sergei Demens a chance to take a nice shot to the bottom corner of the net.

The Monashees didn’t give up without a fight and kept pushing on the Outlaws’ back line. Their persistence paid off with a nice cross in from the right side and a headed goal to tie the game 1-1 early in the second half.

The Outlaws started to get sloppy, giving away two free kicks back-to-back, but goalkeeper Travis Fox made some nice saves to keep the team in it.

With one last push, midfielder Kyle Turnbull took a long-range shot with a crowded box. He hoped for the best,  but hit the cross bar.

With just 10 minutes left  in the game, Demens beat the Monashees’ defender and got his second goal of the game.

Final score, Salmon Arm Outlaws 2, Vernon Monashees, 1.
