Here is what Division 1 has in store for the upcoming weekend of top level amateur soccer on Vancouver Island.
Gorge will be tested as the young Westcastle team seems to be hitting their groove nicely. The Friday night game should attract some viewership as the young squad plays a good style of soccer and Gorge look to turn their season around some.
Bays have been struggling, but are coming off a convincing victory after travelling to Comox – a very big test in itself. They will look to top off the Mid Isle squad who is hot and at the top of the division, which is pretty good for a team that was just promoted this year.
Saturday will play host to our Game of the Week – we get on the road and travel to Merle Logan to celebrate the special day that Nanaimo United has planned. A family-friendly day to celebrate the amalgamation of the youth organization Harbour City, with the historic United club that has been in existence for 100+ years.
Cowichan will be in town and they look to continue on and surprise all by not only contending in all games they are in but also having an undefeated record to this point.
Should prove to be an interesting match, and partnered up with the other games (Women’s Premiere, Mens Div 2, Youth) on the docket, should be a great day.
We will live tweet the game and post plenty of photos come Sunday.
Comox will travel down over the Malahat and look for their first points of the season as they take on Vic West. Surprisingly Vic West has struggled out of the gate, but you know they are working on getting more positive results.
Sunday will play host to the final Div 1 game of the weekend at Glasgow. Not the easiest of fields to play on. This will be a good test for the Lakehill lads who typically play on turf.
Fernwood has been in a lot of games this year but will need a special effort to get some points off the Reds.
Come on out and enjoy some local soccer and see your local community players.
