Comox Valley United bows out of Jackson Cup

Men's soccer side falls 3-1 to VISL Div. 1 rival Cowichan FC

It was one and done for Comox Valley United at the 2015 Jackson Cup.

In a first-round game Feb. 14 in Ladysmith between two Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 opponents, United dropped a 3-1 decision to Cowichan FC.

United went up 1-0 and Cowichan equalized before half time. The Duncan squad scored a great goal in the 70th minute then clinched things with a third while United was pushing.

“It was a great battle,” said United spokesperson Rob Caya. “We had some awesome fans that made the drive (to Ladysmith) and out-cheered the home team by a long shot.”

United finished sixth in their first year in Div. 1 while Cowichan won the Div. 1 championship.

While United now gets to sit back, relax and reflect on their successful inaugural season in Div. 1, Cowichan will prepare to face the winner of Lakehill (Div. 1) vs. Nanaimo United (Div. 2) in a round two quarter-final match on the March 1 weekend.
