Lakehill earn big draw against Bays, VISL this week

Seventh-place Lakehill Maple Glass men’s team managed a massive 2-2 draw against second-place Bays United

Seventh-place Lakehill Maple Glass men’s team managed a massive 2-2 draw against second-place Bays United Div. 1 of the Vancouver Island Soccer League last week.

Keegan Lang and Chris Woodcock scored for Lakehill while Jordie Hughes and Nestor Valencia each tallied for the Bays.

On Saturday, Lakehill will face the youthful V.I. Wave, which features plenty of provincial champion Reynolds Roadrunners, noon at Finlayson.

Last week the Wave (sixth) fell 2-0 to Cowichan (first) on two goals by Patrick Nelson.

Saanich Fusion suffered a 5-1 defeat to Vic West and remain in the Div. 1 cellar. The Fusion face the Bays, 8 p.m. Friday night at Oak Bay High.

John Shah scored twice to lead Gorge (third place) to a 4-1 win over Campbell River Cermaq. This week’s Game of the Week is Gorge hosting Vic West., 7 p.m. Friday at Hampton Park.

“Some say this is a make it or break it game for both teams as it has a lot to do with standings,” said VISL president Vince Greco. “The winner gets that much closer to the Cowichan leaders, and the losing team slips back to potentially the final berth for BC Soccer Provincial Cup.”

Last week’s VISL Game Of The Week was from Div. 2, as Westcastle fell to Vantreights 1-0 at Westhills Stadium in a contest for second place.

Vantreights scored the only goal at the 85th minute when Lucas Jacob swung in a corner kick that looked like Westcastle was not ready for. Vantreight’s also benefited from superb goalkeeping from Vantreight’s Ryan Elborne, the 1550’s pub-style restaurant game MVP.

Vantreights are now in second in Div. 2 chasing a strong Cowichan Utd. team while Westcastle drop down to fourth.
