Victoria (ISN) – There was mixed success for Lower Island Womens Soccer Association (LIWSA) teams competing in the Provincial Senior Women’s Soccer ‘A’ & ‘B’ Cup competition last weekend, with a number of teams bowing out of further competition, but with the Prospect Lake and Castaways teams advancing to and hosting semi-finals this Sunday.


Senior A Cup

Prospect Lake 2:0 win vs. Saanich Fusion

The Lakers, coached by John Leier took advantage of leading the attack along the flanks. Both goals were scored on clever finishes from long crosses into the penalty area.

Nahanni Latimer netted the game winner, finishing a cross by Jane Travers. Janelle Smith quelled any Saanich intent late in the match with a header goal on a service by Natasha Salo. Olivia deGoode earned the shut out behind a solid defensive performance by the committed ten players before her.

Prospect Lake advances to the provincial senior A-Cup semi-final vs. Columbus FC. These two teams meet at Layritz Park in Saanich this Sunday, April 29th. Kick off scheduled for 2pm.

Senior A Cup

Gorge FC and Castaways FC each scored a lone goal in their quarter final matches last Sunday, but came out on the wrong end of the scores thus ending their seasons. Liz Hansen scored the lone goal for Gorge vs. North Shore Girls Soccer Club while Kelsey Marshall netted the Castaways’ marker vs. Surrey United.

Senior B Cup

Castaways FC 4:1 win vs. Oceanside FC (Parksville)

After conceding an own goal in the first half to Oceanside FC, the girls in blue shifted gears and came out flying in the second half with four unanswered goals to advance to this Sunday’s semi-finals.

Joey Porco continues her scoring streak and was followed up on goals by Robbie McMaster, Emma Hart and Allyn Dagg.

Castaways FC Div 1’s host Aldergrove Adrenaline this Sunday, 2pm kick off at the Alex Campbell Sr. Turf Field at PISE.

Senior B Cup

Prospect Lake Div 1’s travelled to the North Shore last Sunday and put a scare in the hosts with an early goal by Haley Skene. Unlike their previous cup match vs. Vic West, the Lakers couldn’t hold onto the lead and fell 2:1. A quality effort played by the Victoria girls according to their coach, Adriano Sumberac.
