Revelstoke FC blows out Salmon Arm 9-1 in soccer action

Revelstoke FC thumped the Salmon Arm Outlaws 9-1 to stay in contention for the regular season title of the North Okanagan Soccer League.

Revelstoke FC thumped the Salmon Arm Outlaws 9-1 in men’s soccer action Wednesday to stay in contention for the regular season title of the North Okanagan Soccer League.

Revelstoke took advantage of an under-manned and under-gunned Salmon Arm team in the lop-sided victory.

Salmon Arm, who showed up without any subs, lost a player early and were forced to play the match a man down. In the second-half they lost another player to injury for about 15 minutes, giving Revelstoke an even greater advantage.

Revelstoke feasted on the 2-10 Outlaws, getting two goals each from Quentin Silzer and John McNaughton, and one goal from father & son Louie and Landon Fuscaldo; brothers Tom and Josh Lynch; and Tom Nelson.

The win boosted Revelstoke to 9-3-2 on the season, with four games left to play. The team is third in the standings, only two points behind Courvas and Turnkey, who are tied for the league lead.

“It’s been turning out well,” said team captain Sergio Spataro. “We lost a couple of game we should have won.”

He said the team was winning despite missing a number of players due to other commitments. There were only 13 players at Wednesday’s game, from a roster of 23.

“On a day like today against a good team with subs, it would be a lot tougher,” he added.

The team lost several key players this season but received a boost from some international additions, including the Lynch brothers from Australia, and Nelson and McNaughton, who are from England.

Revelstoke plays its last home game of the season against North Enderby Timber in Queen Elizabeth Park on Monday, July 30, at 7 p.m. NET is three points behind Revelstoke in the standings.

After that, it finishes off the regular season with three road games against Davidson Dynamite, Concept Physio and NOD Eagle Homes.
