Comox Valley United wins final league game

Local men's soccer squad finishes a solid second in VISL Div. 1

Comox Valley United closed out their Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 season Saturday at Vanier Turf Field with a 4-2 win over Lakehill FC.

“It was a great atmosphere to play in on a clear night. We had our biggest crowd of the year cheering us on in the brisk weather,” said United team rep Rob Caya. “Our team was pretty pumped right from the get go. The message before the game was to keep working on what we need to do, and have some fun.”

Gabby Mason opened the scoring three minutes in and netted another one a few minutes before half. Lakehill then responded with a goal before the whistle to make it 2-1 at the break.

Almost immediately after the restart, Lakehill converted a free kick played into the box where it was redirected for a goal to tie it 2-2.

Grayson Chalifoux put Comox up 3-2, and at the 75th minute mark Carey Cordocedo came on in the midfield and gave the team that extra boost of leadership to finish the game. He looked quite dangerous at times. Mason came back on in the second half to finish off his hat trick and put Comox up 4-2.

“United thanks all of the fans and businesses that have supported us and cheered us on throughout the season. They have kept us motivated through the long season,” Caya said.

United now shifts focus to Jackson Cup and also awaits the Provincial Cup draw.
