Now there are 4 teams left in the Sir John Jackson Cup.
The past weekend saw a blowout, a deciding goal late, a new rivalry formed, and a contentious game with what seemed plenty of drama to go with it.
-The blowout saw Vic West just being too much for Comox.
-The late goal was in favor of Gorge as they defeated Fernwood Div 2 – a Cinderella story in the making.
-The new rivalry had Lakehill slipping past Mid Isle Div 2 – they will get further acquainted next year in Division 1.
-The drama – Cowichan defeating Nanaimo…….it seemed like it all went against Nanaimo on the day – and if there was ever an argument for video review on the Island – this might be the poster child for it. Sounds like plenty thought there might have been a goal, but it did not go down in history that way.
These are how the individual games finished:
|Saturday Mar 3, 7:00 PM Merle Logan|
|Friday March 2, 7:00 PM Hampton Park|
|Comox Valley D1|
|Saturday March 3, 6:00 PM Comox Turf|
|Vic West D1|
|Saturday March 3, 7:00 PM Braefoot Turf|
|Mid-Isle Mariners D2|
Semifinals are next week, and Vic West will host Lakehill while Cowichan will host Gorge.
