Here is what there is on tap for local soccer league play this weekend.
The past weekend made the division a little tighter, we are pretty sure there could be a little bit of drama for this weekend as well.
Sherman Rd will play host to Cowichan vs Gorge. Gorge will look to build on their win vs Bays while Cowichan built on their expected win over Fernwood. Three points for Gorge gets them right back into the mix of things, while three points for Cowichan gets them up with the upper class of the division.
Game of the Week at Braefoot Park on Friday night! A Lakehill win will keep the Reds in the hunt for top placement. The young Westcastle boys are playing great ball as they come off a week of defeating the division leaders. A win by the young lads will keep them in pace with Mid Isle – as they have two games in-hand.
Bays and Fernwood will be a match that will test both teams as they have somewhat underachieved to this point of the year. Both will be hungry for the three points to say the least.
A North Island battle in Ladysmith as Mid Isle will look to rebound from last week’s loss.
They will face a never-giving-up attitude Comox team who would lave to hand a loss to the division leaders.
The last match of the weekend will be between of the two oldest clubs in the division – and the entire league – Vic West and Nanaimo. Finlayson should be busy on Saturday night as Vic West need the three points so much. Nanaimo would like them too as they look to stay up in the top-2 in the division.
All in all, it should be an interesting couple days of soccer.
See you at the park, supporting people living in your community, and local grassroots soccer.
