Saanich Fusion sits in second place in the Vancouver Island Soccer League. They are the second highest scoring team in the division and have the second leading goal scorer in their lineup.
Which, on paper, would seem to give them a big advantage over seventh-place Comox Valley United. But, on the field, where the teams met Saturday afternoon, that big advantage never materialized.
The newly promoted United held their own against the Fusion, dropping a close 2-1 decision at Valley View field.
Leo Falzon and Gord Elliot (second in Div. 1 scoring with seven goals) tallied for the visitors while Darren Bergh replied for United.
At a halftime draw, Jeff Howe won a Manchester United jersey donated by The Prime Chop House and Sure Copy Courtenay. A United team spokesperson said the good turn-out of fans all enjoyed participating in the draw.
United returns to action Saturday, Nov. 1 when they host fifth-place Vic West in a 4 p.m. kickoff at the Vanier Turf Field
