United, Sushi House Banff remain undefeated in BVSL
A battle between the two undefeated Bow Valley Soccer League teams settled nothing on Sunday (July 29) at the Banff Rec Grounds.
Canmore United (3-0) and Banff Sushi House (2-0) played to a 1-1 draw as they battled under a warm Sunday sun.
Overall, the game was a battle between two evenly matched teams, but Jiho Chun opened scoring early for United, with a sod burner shot that eluded Sushi House keeper Andre Frank at about the seven minute mark.
Throughout the game, both teams traded quality scoring chances, but it was about mid-way through the first half that Sushi House evened things up with a goal by Makoto Imagawa, who took a long crossed ball and fired it low against United keeper Mike Vila.
Late in the game, it appeared Chun had netted the winner, but his goal was called offside.
“That was maybe our best game this year,” said Sushi House manager Mayumi Yasuda. “We always have a good game against United. It was a big game.”
In an earlier game on Sunday, Boston Pizza downed Earl’s 3-1.
Andy Chrisanthopoulous scored for Earl’s, but BP responded with goals by Dean Eggleton (header from a corner kick), Andrew Power (volley of a corner kick) and Marthy Wuastner in the dying moments of the game.
With the draw between United and Sushi, United now leads the league at 3-0-1, with Sushi House in second place at 2-0-1 and Boston Pizza third at 1-2. Banff Springs (1-2) and Earl’s (0-3) round out the standings.
