The North Enderby Timber brushed off Turn-Key Controls 3-0 in North Okanagan Soccer League play Wednesday night at MacDonald Park.
Both teams were 2-0 going into the early showdown.
The NET veterans came to play with numerous newcomers out with injuries.
NET opened the scoring in the 20th minute when Chris Ovens sent Danny Stein down the wing on a well placed through ball. Stein then slipped the ball through the defence to Brent Poulsen, who slipped the ball under the diving keeper.
Poulsen then converted his second of the match in the last minute of the half when Dexter James and Mwiza Singogo played a nifty one-two in the midfield before Singogo Sent in Poulsen, who beat two defenders before putting the ball in the back of the net.
Singogo and Poulsen then switched roles in the 75th minute when Poulsen slipped the ball to Singogo, who took one touch and beat the keeper low.
Ean Ross made a couple of superb diving saves to earn his third straight clean sheet and the Libra Love Boutique man of the match.
Winless Peters Tirecraft and Monashee Surveying FC ran to a scoreless draw at Mac Park.
Ageless Rob Spraggs, betrayed by a bad back, made a handful of huge saves to earn the Tin Man Man of the Match for Tirecraft.
Roadrunner Andy Collins was stymied by Monashee keeper Ryan Sharp from eight yards out on a second-half breakaway.
Axel Chinyanta was a general in the Monashee midfield as the surveyors enjoyed a slight advantage in possession.
In other games, the Salmon Arm Outlaws ambushed the Revelstoke Stallions 4-0 at Blackburn Park, while the Salmon Arm Courvas clipped Nation of Domination Eagle Homes 2-1 at Jackson Sports Field.
In next Wednesday night fixtures, Monashee takes on the Outlaws (1-2), while NET faces Courvas (3-0) at Mac Park. Tirecraft plays Revelstoke, while Turn-Key tangles with Eagle Homes, in Salmon Arm.
