Corey Swain passes upfield during the final of the indoor football tourney at Wakas Hall last weekend.

Quick hat trick helps net win

A rapid-fire Corey Swain hat trick helped push the Kwixasa’las Memorial side to a comfortable victory in weekend's soccer tourney.

A rapid-fire Corey Swain hat trick helped push the Kwixasa’las Memorial side to a comfortable victory in the final of the Memorial Co-ed Indoor Soccer Tournament, held last weekend at Wakas Hall.

Kwixasa’las earned a berth against Marie Memorial after Saturday’s round-robin and Sunday’s playoffs in the eight-team Futsal rules soccer tourney.

After grabbing an early strike, the Kwixasa’las went from 1-0 to 4-0 in the space of a minute and a half courtesy of Swain’s fancy footwork.

Marie were able to respond quickly with a goal of their own, but some neat interplay from the Kwixasa’las side helped them add another three goals over the next four minutes, effectively putting them out of reach.

As both sides settled into the game the scoring slowed and despite some late pressure from Marie, Kwixasa’las ran out comfortable 8-2 victors.

In the consolation final Girly-Grace Memorial overcame a two-goal Ninogads Memorial lead to take third place.

Ninogads had got the best of the opening minutes and ran out to a 3-1 lead.

Girly-Grace managed to tie it up only to see Ninogads pull ahead again.

William Wasden scored an equalizer with 11 minutes left to play and Girly-Grace added a brace in the final five minutes to earn a 6-4 win and third place.
