Here is what’s on the card for this weekend’s Division 1 soccer:
Friday night starts off with the battle of Saanich as Lakehill and Gorge meet up at Braefoot Park. Lakehill will look to carry on with their great result last week, and Gorge will try to get a “W” after a tough loss to Cowichan.
Fernwood will be in tough as they battle top of the table Mid Isle. Fernwood is coming off their worst result ever while Mid Isle is coming off a hard-fought, last-minute draw vs Comox.
Comox and Cowichan will battle at Vanier. The two always seem to match up well.
Comox seems to have rejuvenated a bit, will they be able to keep it going vs a determined Cowichan team who are right in the mix of things.
Westcastle will look to bounce back after their loss to Lakehill as they face a tough Vic West team who seems to be trending the right way of late. The greens are in all their games, will they be able to keep up with the pace of the young boys.
The final game of the weekend will have Nanaimo host Bays Utd at Merle Logan.
Nanaimo seems to be down with some injuries, but should prove to be a much tougher match for the Oak Bay squad.
The second-to-last weekend of local amateur soccer for Men for 2018, should be an interesting one.
