Fusion return to the win column

The Saanich Fusion Maude Hunter’s Div. 1 held off Wescastle United for a 3-2 victory

The Saanich Fusion Maude Hunter’s Div. 1 men got back on the winning track with a 3-2 victory over Westcastle United at Tyndall Park in senior men’s Vancouver Island Soccer League play last week.

Chris Peereboom, Leo Falzon and Andrew Celenza each scored to put the Fusion up 3-0 before Westcastle rallied. Jordan French and Jon Shah replied for Westcastle.

The Fusion are now tied for fifth with Gorge FC at 2-1.

“I thought a 3-0 lead was big enough and the team could handle it, but they (Westcastle) made it close in the end,” said head coach Steph Steiner.

SFFC Maude Hunter’s next match is against Lakehill FC (0-2-2) at Tyndall Park on Friday at 8 p.m.

In other Div. 1 men’s play, Michael Moon scored the only goal as Bays United edged Gorge 1-0. Ellito Mitrou earned the clean sheet. Nanaimo United’s Andrew Adams scored a hat trick in a 3-0 win over Lakehill.

Tonight Gorge visits Cowichan in Ladysmith and the Fusion face Lakehill in a Saanich derby, 8 p.m. at  Tyndall Park.

Last week the Fusion premier women lost 4-3 to the Victoria Athletics despite a hat trick from Kymber Gale.

“We had to deal with a lot of hard physical play and were unlucky not to get a better result,” head coach Justin Parish said.

The Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association is off for Thanksgiving weekend but returns to action Friday (Oct. 17) with Prospect Lake facing the V.I. Wave, 8 p.m. at Layrtiz, while Lakehill will host the Vic Athletics, 8 p.m. at Finlayson Turf. On Saturday, Oct. 17, Fusion faces Gorge, 8 p.m. at Tyndall Park.
