VISL Round-up: Cowichan go top after weekend of tricks and treats

Some tricks, some treats – some great soccer over the weekend on the Island in top tiered Division 1 play.

It was a weekend where the Island soccer community celebrated the induction of Victoria O’Keefe’s into the Greater Victoria Sports Hall of Fame, as well as respected member of the community, longtime member Alex Nelson.

The biggest talking points of this past weekend were…

* The standings changed over the weekend, especially at the top where Cowichan took out Gorge to reclaim sole possession of top spot.

* The Game of the Week did not disappoint. Craig Gorman picking up the game MVP honours.

*Vic West came away with an impressive win over Nanaimo to get right back in the mix.

* Lakehill still rolling as they travel up to Comox and earn a win.

* In the young gun battle, Westcastle took out a depleted VI Wave team.

* And a big game at the bottom of the table saw the resurging Bays squad take down Vantreights.

Here’s the full Division 1 scores and scorers from the pre-Halloween weekend matches.

Gorge FC 0
Cowichan FC 2 (Patrick Nelson, Marc Anton Bucher)

Vic West 3 (Juan Felipe Tinoco, Bryan Taylor x2)
