Cowichan cleans up at Island Invitational

All three Cowichan Valley Soccer Association entries – including two teams that are headed to their respective provincial championships – came home with gold medals from the 50th annual Island Invitational Soccer Tournament in Port Alberni last Saturday.

The U15 boys Gold Grizzlies won their tournament final 5-1 over the U15 Harbour City team from Nanaimo, the U14 girls Gold Cowichan Chaos won 3-1 over their Comox Valley opponents, and the U14 boys Gold Cowichan team capped off the day with a 3-1 win over Powell River.

Along with the U16 boys Gold Spartans, the U15 boys Grizzlies and U14 girls Chaos will compete in the provincials, marking the first time the CVSA has sent three teams to that level.
