March 18, 2014 (ISN) – Our top squads both posted lopsided victories on Saturday, leaving both tied for top spot in their divisions. The Academy lost to Port Alberni by a 7 point margin, but can certainly take solace in putting in a strong performance against a squad that beat the Valhallians the week before.

Weekend Results

  • Women: Velox 71 – Mudhens 0
  • Valhallians: Velox 69 – Comox 0
  • Academy: 41 – Port Alberni 48

Coming Up

The club hosts Nanaimo this Saturday in a men’s double header: 1st division (Valhallians) and 3rds. I haven’t seen any official game times, but I’m guessing 1pm for 3rds, then 2:30 for the 1sts. The women and Academy get this weekend off.
