Comox Valley United beat the Westcastle Lakers of Victoria 1-0 in men’s soccer action Saturday at the Vanier turf field.

Nick Marinus scored the lone goal in the early stages of the game.

“It was much needed after conceding eight goals in our first two games,” said Rob Caya, a defender on the Division 1 team. “We were pretty short staffed with only two subs. It was definitely a character win with everybody stepping up.”

CVU lost 4-1 to the Victoria Highlanders in the Vancouver Island Soccer League season opener Sept. 10 at home. The squad was shut out 4-0 by Villa the following weekend in Powell River.

United next plays in Cowichan on Saturday, Oct. 1. The Axis has won two games and lost one.
