Week 16 was a busy one in the VISL Division 1.

A champion was crowned, and the races within the rest of the division are boiling up.

There is only two full weeks left, and so much is still to be determined.

BC Provincial Cup berths as well as relegation being the two biggest items on the agenda.

Here is how the weekend wrapped up, with special congratulations to Cowichan LMG for claiming the fourth-straight divisional championship – earning the Garrison Cup.

  • Cowichan started off the weekend of games by clinching the division with a win over Bays Utd.
  • A Nanaimo – Gorge draw has made a cluster in spots 3, 4, and 5.
  • The Lakehill win over Westcastle keeps the Reds in the hunt for a Provincial Cup berth, while making things a little tougher for the New Kids on The Block.
  • VI Wave and their win over Vantreights puts pressure on Comox and Bays as all are fighting for their relegation lives.
  • Vic West defeated Comox to take a stronghold of second place, and force Comox to earn another result to stay clear of the relegation zone.
