Comox Valley United now in sixth place in VISL Div. 1

Local men's soccer side picks up easy three points as Lakehill defaults Dec. 14 match

Comox Valley United picked up their easiest three points of the season on Saturday as Lakehill McLaren Lighting decided to take the day off rather than travel to Courtenay for their scheduled Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 match.

The win solidified United’s (6-5-3) hold on sixth place in the 10-team division, and they are breathing down the necks of fifth-place Bays United (6-5-4), who they trail by one point but hold a game in hand on.

The league is now on its holiday break. United is scheduled to resume play Jan. 1 at Castaways FC, ringing in the new year in Victoria on a Thursday.

Comox Valley closes out their first year in Div. 1 on the road. Their final three matches are slated for Jan. 17 at Westcastle United, Jan. 24 at Saanich Fusion and Jan. 31 at Vic West FC.
