While most of the Province was shut down because of snow, we here on the Island were fortunate enough to get 75% of our scheduled games in. We were busy with some Cup play as well as some Division 1 & Division 2 regular season games that determined important placements within.
- In Division 1, Cowichan showed why the won the division as they defeated Vic West.
- Nanaimo improved their positioning and hurt Westcastle as they defeated the New Kids in the Division.

On the Division 2 side of things, there was some finality in placements.
- Fernwood defeated Prospect Lake which sealed the placement for the orange and black. They are in the relegation zone and will need to wait and see what happens with Division 3 and possible promotions there.
- A Saanich Fusion win over Vic West has big implications as the Gordon Head team will potentially be in a position to challenge Comox United of Division 1 for the future placement of the club. The upcoming Juan de Fuca vs Lakehill game will have more at stake than just bragging rites.

It was a little on the stressful side to get games in. Teams, clubs, and membership overall bent a little bit and gave a helping hand when possible to get the games in. Is just another reason why this community is pretty solid.
Thanks for supporting local people and local soccer.
