Fusion collect pair of wins

Saanich Fusion Football Club men's and women's clubs back in action Friday

The Saanich Fusion Football Club’s premier women and division 1 men were both victorious over the weekend despite missing key players.

The premier women defeated Lakehill 1-0 on a goal by Katherine Chesher.

Head coach Justin Parish was satisfied with the result as the team was missing their starting goalkeeper and had low numbers.

Parish said the team played well, but they need to continue to get used to playing with each other as the team has many new faces this season.

Last year the SFFC premier women finished third in the Lower Island Women’s Association league and were knocked out of the B.C. provincial tournament in the second round.

Parish is aiming to improve on the third-place finish and hopes the team gets further in the provincial tournament.

The premier women play Prospect Lake at Layritz on Friday.

The SFFC Maude Hunter’s division 1 men battled hard to sneak out a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Island Wave.

Bryan Taylor scored two goals to get SFFC the win.

Head coach Steph Steiner said it was an ugly game, but the team battled hard and he is happy to get the win.

“At the end of the day we got the three points and that’s all that matters in this league,” said Steiner.

SFFC Maude Hunter’s went into the game without five of their starting 11 as they are sidelined with injuries.

“We have depth, but when you are missing five starting players it’s a challenge for everyone else,” said Steiner.

SFFC expects a couple of those starters to be back in the lineup in a couple of weeks while the others may be a month or so away.

SFFC Maude Hunter’s play their home opener on Friday at Tyndall Park against Bays United Liquor Plus, kick off at 8 p.m.
