JDF teams claim Island titles

Two local soccer club prepare for provincial championship

In Vancouver Island Premier League soccer play, the Juan de Fuca under-18 boys team defeated Saanich last weekend to take the Island A Cup title and earned an invite to play at the provincial championships in Burnaby, starting on July 7.

JDF beat the favoured Fusion 3-2 with Tristan Austin, Matt Thompson and Hagen Herald scoring.

The team will be having a bottle drive to help raise money for their trip to provincials. Team members will happily accept any unwanted empties on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at West Shore Parks and Recreation’s lower fields near the basketball courts.

And they’re not the only local team to claim an Island title this season. The JDF under-15 gold level boys team also proved their soccer superiority by beating Comox Valley United to win the Island B Cup.

These golden boys also qualified for the provincial championships in Vancouver from July 7 to 10.
