The wait for their first ‘W’ is over.
Comox Valley United posted a convincing 4-1 win over Castaways FC on Sunday afternoon at Valley View to record their first victory in Div. 1 of the Vancouver Island Soccer League.
The newly promoted local men’s soccer side improved to 1-3-0 and moved into a tie for seventh place with Nanaimo United (1-3-0) in the 10-team league.
Clay Fauchon earned Comox Valley game MVP and Rookie honours as he scored one goal to go along with tallies by Darren Bergh, Graeme McNeill and Zack Stinson. Chris MacIsaac replied for Castaways.
United led 2-1 at the half and came close on several other chances created by their free-flowing offence, which kept the Castaways’ back line and keeper busy all game.
United is one of four Div. 1 teams with one win to their credit, and they’ll meet another one this Saturday when they travel to Nanaimo for a 7 p.m. tilt with the team they are currently even with in the standings.
On Oct. 11 United is away to Lakehill McLaren Lighting. Their next home game is Oct. 18 when they host Westcastle United. Lakehill and Westcastle are tied for fourth place with 2-2-0 records.
