VISL Round-up: Three points separate the top six after first four matches

Just when you think you know what way things will go, a weekend of soccer plays out, and the results are not what you expected.

Just three points separate the top six teams in the Vancouver Island Soccer League (VISL) Division 1 standings after the first four weeks of matches. Local island soccer looks like it is in for an interesting year.

The biggest talking points of this past weekend were…

* Cowichan did avenge last week’s loss and took it out on Lakehill.

* Vantreights went up to Comox and almost earn a valuable away point.

* Nanaimo are looking like they are getting strong as the season unfolds, blanking Bays United, who haven’t been this far down the league ladder for a long time

* Westcastle surprisingly drew with undefeated Division 1 leaders Gorge, spoiling the Victoria men’s 100% record.

* VI Wave score late to salvage a draw against Vic West.

* Gorge continue to lead the pack at this early stage, but Cowichan are nipping at their heels.

Here’s the full Division 1 scores and scorers.

Cowichan FC 4 (Patrick Nelson 2, Craig Gorman, Tanner Dobson)
Lakehill FC 1 (Ryan Andre)

Comox Valley United 3 (Kyle Bate, Peter McWilliams, Gokhan Avcil)
