VI Soccer League’s holiday hiatus partly weather related

Westcastle, Juan de Fuca teams enjoying mixed results at Christmas break

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.
