Some results from Saturday's action:

Callies 8 - 0 Red Deer

The Callies cruised to an easy victory as they ran all over the Red Deer Renegages on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon.

6 different scorers helped pump 8 goals into the Red Deer net as the Renegade defence had no answers for the Callies onslaught.

The scoring started in the 16th minute when Nic Reyes potted an ugly goal in a goalmouth scramble, after Mark Slade missed poking the ball into a wide open net.

A minute later, another Reyes was on the score sheet as Jimmy Reyes scored a much more beautiful goal than his brother when he chipped the Red Deer keeper who was caught in no-man's land.

In the 25th minute, Slade would finally find the mark when he ran onto a long ball, turned his marker inside-out, and calmly slotted a shot into the left corner.

Slade would tally again at the 41 minute mark when he was on the receiving end of a perfect Nic Reyes feed, after Reyes had stolen the ball on an errant Red Deer pass.

The first half scoring was not finished as Kenny Nutt connected with a perfect through-ball and slipped his shot just inside the left post.

With such a comfortable lead, the Callies manager, Dave Randall, decided to make wholesale changes at the break, to have a look at some of his other players.

Red Deer enjoyed a short spell of possession after the break, but never really troubled Callies keeper, Dave Harrison, who had very little to do on the day.

The Callies made it 6-0 in the 56th minute when Steffen Holdt unleashed a blast that took a touch on the way to goal before it slammed into the twine.

Felix Napuri rounded out the scoring with a brace near the end of the match. He began his scoring on a nice shot in the 79th minute, after some nice Callies passing.

He completed the rout in the 83rd minute when he found himself on a 2 on 1 with Miguel Romero and elected to take the shot himself. He made no mistake.

The final whistle ended Red Deer's miserable day. The Callies looked very impressive on opening day.

Also on Saturday:

Dinos 1 - 3 Green & Gold

In a tight-fought battle on a bad-weather day, Green & Gold managed to break down a tiring Dinos defence to come away with a 3-1 victory at Broadview Park.

The match was a see-saw affair for most of the first half. Both sides came close, but could not find the opener.

G&G's Damir Jesic was saved well by the Dinos' Richard Urbanczyk in the 23rd minute. 10 minutes later, the Green & Gold keeper was called upon to save and smother a blast by the Dino's Brandon Gerritson.

G&G opened the scoring 4 minutes before the half when Sean Myskiw found himself wide open on the left side and had the time to turn his defender and blast a cannon just under the crossbar.

The Dinos should have equalized, just 60 seconds later, when a long chip attempt that seemed destined to go into the G&G net was cleared off the line by the Dinos' Tanmeet Singh as he tried to guide it into the net. The fans and players were left stunned.

The Dinos' equalized in the 63rd minute, as Garrett Meier managed to stay just onside on a nice through-ball and steered the ball past the G&G keeper.

Their joy was short-lived however, as Green & Gold's Junior Castrillon slotted one in the 69th minute. A Dinos defender had slipped on the play, allowing a 3 on nil breakaway. Castrillon had two passing opportunities, but elected to shoot and made no mistake, tucking it inside the left post.

Green & Gold ended the scoring in the 85th minute on another Dinos defensive breakdown. John Koyne latched onto a complete giveaway and also decided to shoot instead of pass to an open man. Urbanczyk had no chance.

The Dinos will try to get into the win column on Sunday when they host Edmonton Ital-Canadians. Green & Gold hope to continue their winning ways when they travel to Lethbridge tomorrow. The time for both matches is 12:00.
