Another interesting weekend in the VISL’s top flight of amateur soccer on the Island – Division 1.
For the most part, no crazy surprises, but a couple heart stopping moments.
Here are the main scores from the weekend.
-Friday was wet, the Bays v Gorge game was called early as there was plenty of water sitting on field after a while.
It ended in a 0-0 draw. Gorge picking up their 7th of the season – the most in the VISL modern day era.
Earning the shutouts were Ethan May of Bays, and Nick McCue of Gorge.
-With the water issues up the Trans Canada Highway, the Powell River vs Cowichan match had to be postponed.
-Saturday saw Juan de Fuca defeat Mid Isle by score of 2-0 at Westhills.
Scoring for JDF was Ethan Emile and John Hurrell.
Earning the shutout was youth permitted Keeper – Cody Carter
-Saturday also saw Lakehill getting 1 step closer to earning their 1st ever Garrison Cup as they edged out Vic West by score of 1-0.
Scoring the only goal of the game was Wes Barrett of Lakehill.
Earning the shutout for the Reds was Hardeep Gahunia.
-The final game of the weekend saw Westcastle blank Nanaimo by score of 3-0.
Westcastle goals were by Stuart Klenner, Kadin Martin-Pereux, and goal scoring leader Keenen Colley.
Earning the shutout and place atop the standings of most clean sheets – Sachdev Grewal.
With all the scores entered, here is a look at the updated table:
A Lakehill win against Gorge next week will win the division for them, and as previously mentioned – their first ever divisional championship = Garrison Cup championship.
Positions 3-5 are still hotly contested, and somebody could be on the outside looking in for qualifying for BC Soccer’s Provincial Cup.
And the bottom of the table still has pots to sort out.
While Mid Isle is confirmed 10th place, the 9th place steam (Which also gets relegated) is still to be decided among 3-4 teams.
The next couple weeks could easily see some places change over.
Here is the look at a couple leader boards.
First is the goal scoring trophy.
Keenen Colley leads the way and it will take a couple special weeks to see him get kicked off that spot.
And with the weekend results, there is a new leader of clean sheets.
Sachdev takes his spot at the top.
Wow, a full weekend, with the end of season definitely pretty close. Lots to sort out still in the next 2 weeks, should be pretty exciting.
Thanks for supporting local community players, and local grass roots soccer.
