VISL Division 1 Week 5 Results and Standings

Match-week 5 is complete, most turkey dinners have taken place, and the strange Division 1 year continues.

Here are the results at a glance:

-An interesting start on Friday night as Gorge comeback and earn a draw with Cowichan after being down 2-0 with 5 mins left.
While they salvage a point, it also means both teams dropped the valuable extra 2 points…….another draw each, and those can come back to haunt you.
Cowichan goals by were both scored by Blaze Roberts who is slowly working his way up the goal scoring leader-board.
Gorge goals were by Dominic Colantonio and Steven Barnes.

-Friday night also saw Lakehill keep pace at the top by edging out Juan de Fuca Allflows by score of 2-1.
Lakehill goals by Blair Sturrock and Keegan Lang.
The long JDF marker was scored by Dane Schoor late in the match to break up the clean sheet.

-An early Saturday fixture in Powell River saw Nanaimo in town and they battled with Villa for a 1-1 draw.
Andres Algarin continues with his impressive season as he score for Nanaimo.
Scoring later in the match to secure the point for Villa was Grant Campbell.

-The final game of the week was the Game Of The Week at Finlayson Turf.
It had visiting Bays United defeating Vic West by score of 2-0.
The Bays goals were by scoring leader Patrick Nelson, and the 2nd was late in the game and it was a Vic West own goal.
Earning the shutout for Bays was Ethan May.
Game MVP earning a nice prize package from 1550’s, TeamSales, and Heineken was Bays Defender Alex Redpath.

After all the score have been entered, the table of standings looks like this:

Bays stay atop the division with Lakehill nipping at their heals.
The middle of the division is loaded with the teams that have drawn several games, so that SHOULD change as the weeks unfold.

The scoring leader board still has Patrick Nelson on top, total goals were a lot lower this past weekend, so things seem to be balancing out a bit… least for this week.

Here are the top 5:

Already looking forward to next week!!
