Masters men’s soccer team plays to 2-2 draw

Comox Valley 35-plus squad leads North Island League with 12 points

Midfielder Sandy Grant scored twice for the Comox Valley Masters men’s 35-plus soccer team in a 2-2 tie with Powell River, Sunday at Valley View Park in Courtenay.

Grant slotted home a penalty shot in the early stages of the game. Fellow midfielder Andrew Scott had deked a few defenders and was fouled inside the 18-yard box to draw the penalty.

The visitors tied the game just seconds before the end of the half.

Grant again put the home side up in the second half when he blasted home a pass from forward Peter Croonen. Minutes later, however, Powell River responded with a well-placed shot from a forward.

It was the second meeting of the season between the two sides. In the first, the teams tied 1-1 in Powell River. Both matches were spirited affairs.

Comox Valley sits atop the four-team North Island league with 12 points. Defending champion Powell River is in second spot with eight points and a game in hand.

Grant is the league’s top scorer with six goals while Croonen is second with four.

 

After the Christmas break, Comox Valley hosts Campbell River Jan. 12 and Qualicum Jan. 26.
