As we officially start the second half of the season, it is clear that this weekend might be the biggest of weekends to this point.
The Island Soccer League’s top flight has not been this close in many many years, and all 5 games this weekend are biggies.
Here is what is in store for the weekend:
-Friday night is a busy one, and it starts off with a bang as the Game Of The Week has Cowichan FC hosting Westcastle.
Teams are in 3rd and 2nd place, with Westcastle having 1 game in hand.
The game on Keserich Grass field will be so big for both teams.
We will have a crew field side to tweet out live updates. (via @vincenzo25)
-Friday night will also feature undefeated Gorge FC host Mid isle at Hampton Turf.
Fresh off their McGAvin Cup championship, Gorge will be looking for 3 points to keep pace with the top 4.
Mid Isle will be looking to get themselves their first points of the season.
-The final game on Friday night will also feature 2 of the top 4 teams.
Division leader Bays will look to take out Lakehill again, but rest assured the Reds will be ready for their rivals a municipality away.
Lakehill will look to respond after last weeks loss to Gorge, and pay back Bays for the opening season loss to the squad from Oak Bay.
-Saturday will be a battle between the 2 promoted teams from Division 2 last year.
They drew eachother at 1-1 the first game of the year in Powell River, and both teams will look to squirrel away these huge points.
Juan de Fuca is hosting Powell River at Westhills Stadium at 6 pm.
-Saturday will close out with a couple teams that have been snake bitten this year with some type of misfortune.
Both teams have been competitive and in most of their matches, but just fallen short.
Vic West hosting Nanaimo at Finlayson Turf at 6 pm as well.
The standings going into the weekend……….they will be changing, but to what extent?
What will happen at the bottom of the table?
And will the top 4 teams separate from eachother or will they tie eachother to make matters even more confusing.
Here are the standings currently:
