VISL Division 1 Results and Standings – Week 7

Week 7 is in the books, and while most may have gone “according to plan”, there was still a little bit of drama to confuse things.

All 5 games of the Island’s Soccer League’s top flight were played, here is what happened in that Division 1:

-Friday got started with the young Westcastle team handing Vic West another loss as it finished 2-0.
Westcastle goals by Noah Hrdlicka and Boland Lekeaka.
Earning the shutout was Sachdev Grewal. (permitted player)

-Then came Saturday, and an early game in Powell River saw the local Villa squad fight back to earn a 2-2 draw with Gorge.
Gorge goals were both scored by Mike Dunham.
Powell River goals were by Jake Kenmuir, and a late one in the dying moments by Richard Murphy.

-In the Westshore, Juan de Fuca were blanked by Cowichan by a score of 4-0.
Cowichan goals by Logan Kits, and Blaze Roberts with a huge 3 goal output.
Earning his second straight shutout was Darian Achurch.

-Saturday night saw Lakehill travel to Ladysmith and blank Mid Isle by score of 6-0.
Lakehill had 2 goals from Jon Shah, and singles from Bjorn Malahoff, Keegan Lang, Matthew Olaka, and Steven De Almeida.
Earning the shutout for Lakehill was Sachdev Grewal. (permitted player)

-The final game of the weekend saw Bays Utd defeat Nanaimo Utd by score of 4-1.
Nanaimo’s lone goal by Callum Magog to spoil the shutout effort.
Bays had 2 goals by Alex Redpath and 2 goals by Mackenzie Rigg.

After all the results have been inputted, here is how the divisional standings look:

The upper part of the table has changed in some ways as Cowichan and Westcastle move up.
Bays and Lakehill are still sitting 1 and 2.

Another Gorge draw (division and league leading 5th) still has them as undefeated, but right in the middle of the pack, so both them and Vic West lose a little ground in being the top 4.

Powell River earning a point pushes them ever so slightly above Nanaimo. And JDF and Mid Isle are still in the relegation zone.

With all the goal scoring, the goal scoring leader-board had some changes, here is what the top 5 look like now:

It was another exciting weekend in local amateur soccer.
We are looking forward to what next week will bring already.
Thanks for supporting your community and local grassroots soccer.
