April 15, 2014 (ISN) – The women cemented their spot at the top of the standings, knocking off #2 Burnaby. Their only remaining regular season match is a makeup game against #6 Abbotsford (some rumor Abby may not make the trip over), and the ladies are guaranteed top spot going into the playoffs.

The Valhallians had a strong showing in their Island semi-final against the Hornets, setting up an Island final on the 26th up in Cowichan. The 3rds will be there as well, looking to extend a long streak of Island championships. The 3rds lost to Cowichan last weekend, so will be looking for redemption.

Coming Up

The women have a makeup game at home this Saturday, but we’ll have to wait and see if Abbotsford will make the trip.

Saturday the 26th, the Valhallians and the 3rds both head up to Cowichan to compete for Island championships. It would be great to have a good Velox crowd make the trip, particularly with the women having a bye for that weekend! The Academy are finished regular season play and aren’t in the Island 1st div playoffs, but have the opportunity to enter the BC 2nd div playoffs in May.

Weekend Results

Women: Velox 24 – Burnaby 5

Valhallians: Velox 46 – Nanaimo 19

3rds: Velox 14 – Cowichan 27
