VISL Division 1 Listings, Week 5

Match-week 5 is fast approaching, here is what is going on in our top flight this weekend………….besides a hopeful family/friend get together for Thanksgiving:

-Friday has a good start as Gorge hosts Cowichan at Hampton.
Both teams are neck and neck so far, and both will look to get more than just the 1 point.
Cowichan has been slower out of the gate this year, partly because they have had a pretty tough schedule – so this will be a bid one for the group.

-Friday will close with the hot Lakehill team out of Saanich hosting newcomers to the division Juan De Fuca from the Westshore.
Other than an opeining day blip, the Reds have looked excellent. JDF is still looking to come together, but have had moments of brilliance.
The Westshore boys will look to build on their recent advancement to the McGavin Cup Final on Remembrance day.

-Saturday has a decent match on tap for the faithful at Timberlane as Powell River will look for some points as they host Nanaimo Utd.
Nanaimo has been quite unlucky to start the campaign, and will look to travel well to face Villa – a team which has struggled with he reuniting in division 1.

-The Saturday match up between Westcastle & Mid Isle has been rescheduled as many players will be away. (Moved to Jan 2020 back to back)

-The last match-up of the weekend will feature our Game of the Week as Vic West will host Bays Utd at Finlayson.
This will be a battle of the Green parties – especially as both are right at the top of the standings.
Both teams are off to excellent starts, both teams will look for the full 3 points as Lakehill is right there with them in the standings.

The standings look like this for now – but we know they will change after Saturday is all complete.

Hope to see you at the park in between enjoying some family and/or friend time.
We have a lot to be thankful for – local community soccer and support being high on the list.
