Big night for Kellar


One of the best snipers in the Borderland Soccer League women’s division had a “Killer” birthday bash.
Known as “Killer Kellar” in her Muskie days a decade ago, Sara Kellar was in top form Monday night, scoring all four goals in a 4-3 victory by Al’s Racquet Stringing over La Place Rendez-Vous/Taggs.
On her 25th birthday, Kellar netted a hat trick to give Al’s the lead heading into halftime.
She then added the eventual decisive goal in the second half, which ended up also clinching the league’s Golden Boot Award as the top goal scorer with eight.
Angel McCormack and Samara Payne shared keeper duties for Al’s, which snapped a two-game losing streak against Vous/Taggs to complete their eight-game regular-season series.
Claire Sobkowicz had two goals for Vous/Taggs while Erin Tomalty notched the one other to finish with seven on the season.
Gwen Macdonald and Taylor Steinke split the game between the pipes for Vous/Taggs.
The women are off until Wednesday (Aug. 2), when they’ll begin their best-of-three final.
Game 2 goes Aug. 9, with Game 3 (if necessary) set for Aug. 10.
Meanwhile, the men’s division regular season will go until Wednesday as a couple of make-up games need to be played.
Playoff action then will begin Thursday (Aug. 3) with first place facing fourth place and second place playing third place in a two-game, total-goal series.
Game 2 will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8.
The winners then will meet in the finals on Thursday, Aug. 10.
In men’s division play Monday night, Ian Jodoin’s hat trick allowed CJ Contracting to salvage a 4-4 draw with Pharmasave.
Kirk Johnson had the other goal for CJ, which moved one point ahead of Manitou Forest Products for second place.
The gap could have been wider were it not for an own goal by CJ that wound up being the final tally of the night for last-place Pharmasave.
Anniss Seid, Jeremy Nussbaumer, and DJ Mackintosh scored the traditional way for Pharmasave.
Centra Pipeline then downed Manitou Forest Products 4-1 on Tuesday night.
Jeff Hyatt, Josh Fuhr, Braedon Keast, and Cam Gobeil all scored for Centra, with Tyler Hamm getting the win in goal.
Chris Sinclair replied for Manitou, with keeper Jacob Albright taking the loss.
CJ Contracting was credited with a 1-0 forfeit win over Manitou Forest Products last night.
