Now there are four teams left in the Sir John Jackson Cup.

The past weekend saw a blowout, a deciding goal scored late, a new rivalry formed, and a contentious game with what seemed to have 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:

Nanaimo D1
Saturday, Mar 3, 7:00 PM Merle Logan
Cowichan D1
Gorge D1
Friday, March 2, 7:00 PM Hampton Park
Fernwood D2
Comox Valley D1
Saturday, March 3, 6:00 PM Comox Turf
Vic West D1
Lakehill 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.
