Comox Valley United falls 2-0 to Vic West in VISL Div. 1 match

Vic West FC proved “two” much to handle for Comox Valley United in Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 action Saturday at the Vanier Turf Field.

The visitors got two goals from Blair Sturrock and flawless goalkeeping from Tyler Laing as they posted a 2-0 victory over the local men’s soccer side.

Sturrock was the Vic West MVP for the game while United goalkeeper Mack Zirkl claimed that honour for his team.

The win moves Vic West (4-4-1) into a two-way tie for fifth place while the loss leaves United (2-5-2) in a two-way for seventh.

Comox Valley has an opportunity to move up the table this Saturday when they travel to Victoria to take on sixth-place Gorge FC (2-4-3), who sit just one point ahead of them.
