Yorkton United FC kicked off its second season of the Parkland Mall Men’s League during a heavy rainstorm Sunday. Despite the harsh weather the league’s five clubs all took to the pitch in what ended up being an exciting evening of soccer.
Yorkshire and Parkland Albion beat the M&M Water Supplies Whitecaps 9-4 in the opening fixture, while Black beat Reds 8-5 in the second match.
The M&M Whitecaps also managed to notch a victory in their second match of the day beating Celtic 8-6 in the final game of a high scoring matchday despite the sloppy conditions due to the heavy rain.
Anthony Fetsch, Dillon Ferridge, and Leon Derks were the top single game scorers with Fetsch scoring four goals and Ferridge and Derks notching three apiece.
Sven Waelchli and Shelby Mclelland took advantage of having two games and sit on top of the top scorers table with five goals each.
Men’s league organizer Mike Jakubiec was impressed with the day’s events and the league in general saying, “Even with the cold weather we still had a strong turnout for the opening games. We also had a strong registration this year adding a fifth team and having 71 players register with room for more late additions to the league.”
Jakubiec also thanks the Parkland Mall for sponsoring the league as well as M&M Water Supplies for being a team sponsor.
