Taggs topples Al’s

If England brought Hannah Firth-Oster on board, they still might be in the running for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Firth-Oster, who usually sports a Team England jersey when she plays, continued her hot streak with two more goals to lead Taggs to a 6-2 win over Al’s Racquet Stringing in Borderland Soccer League women’s division action last night.

Firth-Oster has five goals in her past three games as Taggs (4-2) now has won three-straight games to pull within one point of the league-leading La Place Rendez-Vous Voyageurs U18 squad (4-1-1).
Katie Stearns also scored twice for Taggs, with Sara Roach and Jess Caul adding singles.
Caul made the scoresheet while veering away from the recent orders of her coaches at Providence University College in Otterburne, Man. to limit herself to playing keeper for the rest of the season so as to not aggravate the tibial periostitis she suffered last year while playing for the Pilots’ women’s soccer team.
Sara Kellar netted both goals for Al’s (1-6-1), which now has lost three in a row and is winless in its last four.
Meanwhile, four different players tallied for Manitou Forest Products in a 4-2 victory over Senior Pharmasave in men’s division action last night.
Jeff Garney, Sheldon Demers, Ben VonHoltzendorff, and Nick Ashworth all scored once for Manitou (6-1-1), which moved five points ahead of second-place International Travel Services (4-1-1).
Anniss Seid and Nick Spryidis replied for Senior Pharmasave (1-5-2), which sunk into the cellar by itself with the loss.
League action resumes Monday in both divisions, with games starting at 7 p.m.
