Outlaws will represent MIWSL at Provincials

Mainstream team goes 15-1-0 to win women's soccer league championship

The Mainstream Outlaws will represent the Mid-Island Women’s Soccer League at the provincial playoffs, which run April 13-14.

The Outlaws were the 2012-13 MIWSL champions with an impressive 15-1-0 record. Sam Kawano powered the offence with a league-best 22 goals. The top goalkeeper was Pam Richer of Oceanside, who posted seven shutouts in 16 games.

On their website, the league notes this season was a success. “We were fortunate to get in all our league games except one, which is amazing considering the challenging weather and field conditions in our region.

“We have seen considerable improvement in the quality of many teams which has made the league more well-rounded. Although our regular season games have ended we still have the year end tournament in Nanaimo on the April 13-14 weekend.  This is an exciting event in which all teams can get together and enjoy the sport of soccer.”
