December 4, 2013 (ISN) – It seems I had some details incorrect concerning the Women’s Island Final this weekend. UVic was ineligible for playoffs, so Nanaimo was to have joined Velox in the final match.
However, Nanaimo has declined to play the game. It’s got to be a bit anticlimactic, but it means the Valkyries have won the Island Championship by default. Congratulations, ladies, on a strong first half and good luck in Premier in the New Year!
The 3rd division game for Saturday has also been cancelled, with Nanaimo forfeiting due to low numbers. That leaves the Academy as the only squad still playing, heading Saturday up to Port Alberni.
Drop by the club Saturday night (8pm start) to share some Christmas cheer! The party is semi-formal (no jeans) with drink specials available (rum and eggnog!). Bring a Christmas treat to share….
