Campbell River Masters stifle Qualicum Beach

The second half saw the Masters slowly wear down the Qualicum side

On Sunday afternoon, the Campbell River Masters over 35 soccer team put in a solid team effort to come away with a 4-0 win over Qualicum.

The first half of the game was non-eventful aside from a few fleeting attacks down the left side of the field with Jake Blanchard, John Jepson and Mark Ross providing some energy for the Masters. Any offense generated by Qualicum was quickly shut down by a stingy back line that did not allow any shots through for the entire 90 minutes.

The second half saw the Masters slowly wear down the Qualicum side however, when Ivor McWilliams opened the scoring with a lofty shot that beat the Qualicum keeper high. The re-energized Masters pumped in three more goals after that with the strikes coming from Mark Ross, James Kay and Jake Blanchard.

Campbell River will be looking to climb into second place in league standings with a home game against Powell river next Sunday at Willow point park.
