-Cowichan continue to take advantage of Gorge’s 2nd half of the season.
-Bays United escape the relegation zone with a win over Vantreights
-VI Wave take down the New Kids which may cost them a Provincial Cup berth via the division.
-Lakehill hold on to beat Comox and put the North Island Boys in a bad predicament.
