Pistol Pete fires four goals

Croonen leads Masters men's 35-plus soccer team to 6-0 win over Qualicum

Peter Croonen showed why he’s known as Pistol.

Friday evening in Qualicum, the striker found the back of the net four times to lead the Comox Valley Masters men’s 35-plus soccer team to a 6-0 rout over their southern hosts.

Speedy wing half Andrew Scott started the scoring by cutting to the net from the right flank and sliding the ball into the far corner.

Forward Tony Senerchia scored the second goal on a hard drive from outside the 18-yard box.

Then Pistol Pete took over.

Croonen pounced on a loose ball inside the box to make it 3-0 at the half.

On his second goal at the start of the second frame, Qualicum players stopped running, thinking the play was offside, but Croonen wound up with his left leg and slotted the ball inside the post.

He added two more before subbing off the pitch.

Despite nursing a swollen left ankle, goalie Andrew Barnie managed to punch away a few shots for the shutout.

A solid team effort all around. The team remains undefeated atop the four-team North Island league.

Next game is Dec. 1 at home versus Powell River, who beat Campbell River 3-1 on Sunday.
