Here is what we have going on in local top-flight Division 1 soccer this weekend:

Friday, December 8th, 2017
07:00 PM Vantreights – (D1) @ Cowichan FC – (D1) Sherman Road
08:00 PM Lakehill FC – (D1) @ Bays United Liquor Plus – (D1) Oak Bay High School
 

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

04:00 PM Nanaimo United FC – (D1) @ VI Wave – (D1) PISE
06:00 PM Gorge FC – (D1) @ Comox Valley United – (D1) Comox Club Field
08:00 PM Vic West FC – (D1) @ Westcastle United – (D1) Westhills Stadium

In looking at the standings and future matches, some of the games this weekend would be considered must win for some teams  –  and potentially their last opportunity to make a move in the division.

  • While the Vantreights future may be sealed, the team will look to finish strong and nip some points from the division leaders Cowichan.  A tough task indeed as they are facing personnel issues because of injuries.
  • Lakehill will look to get a top-four finish and will need a result from their game vs Bays.  Bays will need the three points to stay clear of the relegation zone and will want to finish strong.
  • Nanaimo will need a result this weekend if they want any hope of finishing near the top. A hungry VI Wave team will look to get out of the relegation zone. This will be the Game Of The Week.
  • Gorge will look to keep pace with Vic West & Cowichan and will face a determined Comox team as they will also be looking to clear themselves from the relegation zone.
  • What might be also considered a Game Of The Week – Vic West are looking to keep pace with Cowichan and will need to have a concentrated effort vs Westcastle in order to do so.

Should be an interesting weekend.  Here are the standings going into Week 14.
