VISL Division 1 Upcoming Matches, January 26-28, 2018

Week 16 is knocking on the door, and there is a possibility that some questions may be answered come late Saturday night when all the games have been played.

Here is what we have planned for fixtures over the weekend:


Friday, January 26th, 2018
07:00 PM Bays United Liquor Plus – (D1) @ Cowichan FC – (D1)   Sherman Road
07:00 PM Nanaimo United FC – (D1) @ Gorge FC – (D1)   Hampton Park
08:00 PM Westcastle United – (D1) @ Lakehill FC – (D1)   Braefoot Park

Saturday, January 27th, 2018

04:00 PM Vantreights – (D1) @ VI Wave – (D1)   PISE
06:00 PM Comox Valley United – (D1) @ Vic West FC – (D1)   UVIC Turf Field 2A


-Can Cowichan claim the Division and win their 4th straight Garrison Cup over arch nemesis Bays United ?

Cowichan has been fortunate with a couple results of late, but Bays will need a big effort to stop the yellow and black from celebrating on their home turf.

-Nanaimo is climbing the ladder, while Gorge has slipped a couple rungs.  The lads from middle island will look to stay in 3rd place with a win over the black n white squad.

-This next game will be our Game Of The Week.  It will be huge for Lakehill should they want to try to earn a BC Soccer Provincial Cup berth. Westcastle is in a great little battle for 3rd place right now.  Will they have what it takes to keep the pressure on ??

-Vantreights vs VI Wave will be a game of the 2 teams in the relegation zone.  Vantreights will look to build on their 1-1 draw last week vs Gorge, while VI Wave will look for better fortune than their 1-2 loss to Cowichan last week.

-Comox is not clear from the relegation zone yet, and they will have a tough test as they travel down island to play the bolstered Vic West squad.  The Valley boys will work hard, but will it be enough to earn points from a very talented VW squad who are looking to keep pace with the division leaders themselves.


Hope to see you at the park supporting local people and local soccer.
