VISL Division 1 Listings, Week 7

Weekend is fast approaching, and the top flight in Division 1 has a busy weekend in store.
Will we be as shocked as we were last weekend?
Here is what the weekend has for scheduled games:

-Just the 1 game on Friday this weekend, and it could be a beauty as Westcastle are hosting Vic West at Westhills.
The New Kids on the Block are hoping the Pacific FC vibe will rub off and that they can extend Vic West’s losing streak.
The Westcastle squad is riding a hot streak of their own, while Vic West are still licking their wounds from a very late goal given up last week that led to their loss to Gorge.

-Saturday is a busy one as Powell River starts the day by hosting Gorge at Timberlane.
They are fresh off their first win, and it will take a special effort to beat the undefeated Gorge team.
Gorge are coming off a win after being part of so many draws. A big 3 points on the line this weekend.

-Juan de Fuca will be hosting Cowichan and a winning football playoff run by the Rebels has meant a venue change.
The game will be on JDF grass by the Q Centre, Saturday at 6 pm.
JDF will look to build from their draw vs division leader bays, while Cowichan is coming off a win vs Nanaimo.

-Mid Isle will look to change their ways as they host Lakehill at Ladysmith turf on Saturday.
The Mid islanders will be in tough as Lakehill always seem to bounce back after a bad loss.
Lakehill coming off the drubbing from Westcastle, while Mid Isle coming off their loss to Powell River.

-The final game on Saturday will be up at Merle Logan Turf
Nanaimo will be hosting division leaders Bays Utd.
Both teams are coming off less than stellar matches last week, so will try to be on the right side of the result.

– A reminder that this is how the standings look going into the weekend:

Many story lines to watch this weekend, but most interesting will be the movement of teams in the top half of the division.
While many points are important, this weekends 3 points per game will affect the standings in big ways…….as will the dreaded draw!

We hope you are able to catch a game before celebrating the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame event at Bear Mountain on Saturday night.

The event is always a good one, and it features many local soccer legends. The Hall has recognized local soccer greats like George Pakos, Ike MacKay, Simon Keith, Vic West Soccer Club and more!

For this years list of inductees, and the option to get a last minute ticket, visit the website for details.

Thanks for supporting local community people, local sport, and in particular local soccer !
