Juan de Fuca Div. men face VISL division leaders

West Shore soccer showdown pits top two teams in Division 3B

Juan de Fuca is holding down second spot heading into this weekend’s Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 3B play.

The West Shore side sits with a 5-3-2 record and hosts division leading Powell River Villa 3B at Westhills Stadium in Langford on Saturday (Nov. 29) at 2:15 p.m. The Villa (8-0-1) have only allowed six goals all season.

JdF is coming off a 6-4 victory over Cordova Bay last weekend. Dane Schoor and Jesum Fernandes scored twice each for the winners, while David Claveau and Aaron Burnell notched singles.

The week before Juan de Fuca beat Fernwood Town FC 5-1, paced with three goals from Chris Wardle and a pair from Aaron Burnell.

Meanwhile, the Juan de Fuca Div. 4A men take on last-place Prospect Lake Lakers on Friday at 6:15 p.m. on the turf at Layritz Field in Saanich.

The JdF 4A squad sits mid-pack in fifth spot with a 4-5-1 record. Last Sunday they tied Bays United 2-2. Jeff Hood and Jaeho Lee scored for JdF.

In the under-21 graduate division, Juan de Fuca sits in a tie for sixth at 2-3-3. They face Gorge FC at 2:15 p.m. Sunday on the turf at Hampton Park.

The U-21s followed up an 8-0 loss to the Victoria Highlanders earlier this month with a 2-2 tie against Nanaimo United FC on Nov. 16. Juan Carlos Gallegos and Marshall Henson scored for JdF in the deadlocked match.
