Heading into the Vancouver Island Soccer League’s holiday break, the Westcastle United men holds down fourth spot in the Division 2 standings at 5-2-3, just two points back of Vic West Casuals in third.
With the league seeing a number of game cancellations of late, Westcastle’s next game is tentatively set for Sunday, Jan. 1 against Powell River Villa. If that match is a no-go, United would have a break until Jan. 21, when they are set to face Lakehill United.
Meanwhile, Juan de Fuca (8-1-3) continues to hold down first in the Div. 3A, two points up on Gorge Us Guys. JdF has a lengthy break and is not slated to play now until Jan. 22.
It’s a different story in Div. 4A, where Juan de Fuca FC (3-5-3) and the Juan de Fuca Pilgrims (2-9-1) are fighting to keep out of the basement.
In Div. 4B the Juan de Fuca Bombers (6-4-2) sit fourth, three back of third place and five out of second.
