Cowichan gets revenge for loss to Vic West United

Cowichan avenged a loss earlier in the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association season with a convincing victory last Sunday.

Playing on their home turf at Evans Park, Cowichan beat Vic West United 3-0, more than turning the tables after a 5-3 defeat in October.

"That game, we didn’t have Kerynne Bain in net and we were missing Colleen Bob sweeping in the back," head coach Marilyn Pugh pointed out, emphasizing the roles both players had in Sunday’s victory. "Kerynne made a few good saves to keep them off the scoreboard. Our defence did a fantastic job once again. Colleen is really starting to control the back line and getting them out of our own end every chance we can."

Nicole Pugh opened the scoring, taking a solid pass from Ashley Stultz and dribbling around the defender before releasing a shot. Stultz then scored one of her own on a 30-yard free kick. Finally, Tarah Thomas scored her first of the season, burying the ball after Kristyn Large hit a defender on a cross from Pugh.

Now in third place in Div. 1, two points back of Prospect Lake with a game in hand, Cowichan will visit fifth-place Gorge on Sunday.
