VISL Div. 2 goal scoring talent on display at Valley View field

Three of the top goal scorers in Div. 2 of the Vancouver Island Soccer League were in action Sunday when Comox Valley United hosted Gorge United at Valley View.

Lukasz Deron of Gorge tallied twice to up his division-leading total to nine, but it wasn’t enough as Nick Marinus netted his fourth and fifth of the year to go along with Gokhan Avcil’s third as the home team prevailed 3-2.

Comox Valley was up 3-1 and carrying the play when Gorge scored in the final 10 minutes to make things interesting.

Marinus opened the scoring in the 30th minute on a textbook header off Avcil’s corner kick as he made a perfectly time run through the box and beat the keeper cleanly.

Luke Phye, playing his first game of the season, shook off the rust on a couple of shots and had a good cross into the box that the goalie mishandled and Marinus tapped home.

Comox Valley hits the road Saturday for a game against Prospect Lake. United (4-1-3) is tied for second place in Div. 2 while the Lakers (2-5-1) are sixth in the 10-team circuit.
