Outlaws advance in Provincial Cup play

MIWSL squad takes on Burnaby Selects in quarter-final action this Sunday

The Mainstream Outlaws defeated the Richmond Red Devils 5-4 on penalty kicks on April 14 to advance to the quarter-finals of Provincial Cup play.

The Mid-Island Women’s Soccer League reps meet the Burnaby Selects of the Metro Women’s Soccer League this Sunday at Burnaby Central School. Semifinals go April 27-28 and the final is May 11.

In the first round of cup play this past Sunday, the Red Devils (Metro Women’s Soccer League) dominated most of the play and led 2-0 at the half. By the 25th minute of the second half the Outlaws had reeled off four unanswered goals to lead 4-2.

The Outlaws, from Campbell River, were unable to hold on and gave up two goals in the last five minutes of play…including the equalizer in the dying seconds of injury time.

 

The teams played two 15-minute overtime halves with no goals to be had. The game was then decided in a shootout where the Outlaws were victorious.
