Cermaq Outlaws closing in on MIWSL championship

Defending league champs have eight-point lead over second-place Oceanside United

With three weeks remaining in the regular season, the Cermaq Outlaws are well-positioned to defend their Mid-Island Women’s Soccer League championship.

The Outlaws are first in the nine-team league with a 12-1-0 record and 36 points. Second-place Oceanside United (9-3-1) sits eight points back while third-place Shooters (8-4-1) are 11 points back.

In Jan. 31 action, the Outlaws overwhelmed Oceanside 6-1 while the Shooters had a bye. In other games, Wheatys and Bandits battled to a 1-1 draw, Nanaimo edged Alberni Athletics 1-0 and CVUSC Revolution clipped Kickers 1-0.

Weather and field conditions permitting, MIWSL action resumes Feb. 7 with Revolution taking on Nanaimo and Kickers going up against Alberni. Location and time of both games were TBA at press time. Check miwsl.com for updates.

The final week of regular season play is scheduled for Feb. 21 followed by the year-end tournament at  Merle Logan Turf in Nanaimo on Feb. 27-28.

There is a tight race for the scoring title, as Shelby Jeeves (Shooters) leads with 14 goals while Rebecca Williams (Outlaws) has 13 and Emma Greene (Revolution) has 12.

Pamela Richer (Oceanside) is tops in shutouts, posting eight clean sheets in her team’s 13 games. Savannah Berins (Revolution) has five shutouts to her credit.
