While many were celebrating Thanksgiving with a turkey dinner, Comox Valley United was giving thanks to Kyle Bate for not missing his penalty kick.
Bate’s accurate strike from the spot earned United a 1-1 draw with Lakehill in a Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 match Saturday night in Victoria.
United is now 1-3-2 in their first season in Div. 1. They are in seventh place, just one point back of sixth place Gorge FC and two back of fifth place co-holders Nanaimo United and Vic West.
