Castaway Wanderers let a close one slip away last week against James Bay, falling 17-12. The single point earned was not enough to ensure them a place in the Barnard Cup Final, but they will get a second chance to punch their ticket in the rematch. Should they falter, James Bay could still edge their way into the final, but the margin for error is razor thin. Kickoff on Saturday is at 2:30pm from MacDonald Park.The Times Cup goes to the top Division 1 Men’s team on the Island, and playoffs are about to get underway. The UVic Norsemen have lost only twice this fall, including once to Port Alberni, whom they’ll face on Saturday. The Nanaimo Hornets have also lost only twice this fall, including once to Cowichan, whom they’ll face on Saturday. Kickoff at UVic and May Bennett Park are both at 1:00pm.
