Comox Valley United continued their winning ways Sunday, defeating Juan de Fuca 1-0 in Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 3B action at Valley View field.

The victory improved division-leading United’s record to 8-0-1 while cellar-dwelling Juan de Fuca fell to 0-8-1.

United manager Mike Letsos says player-head coach Carey Cordecedo is leading the local side well this season. “The overall goal for the team is to carry on into Div. 2 next season and remain very competitive,” Letsos said.

The only team to take a point off United this season is second-place Gordon Head Active Earth Engineering (6-0-3): the teams played to a 1-1 draw Oct. 9 in Courtenay. The rematch comes Dec. 10 in Gordon Head.

Joe Butcher leads the team in scoring with seven goals, which ties him for third in the division. Shaun Gurney of Vic West Spurs leads the division with 10 goals.

United returns to action this Sunday when they head to Victoria to play sixth-place Fernwood Town (4-4-1). Their next home game is Nov. 20 when third-place Vic West (6-2-1) pays a visit.

VISL Div. 3B standings are in Scoreboard on page B13.
