Cowichan United strikes back

U21s get revenge on Juan de Fuca

A three-goal outing by Logan Kits powered Cowichan United to some sweet revenge in a 5-1 win over Juan de Fuca in a U21 soccer test at the Williams Turf last Sunday.

Addison Kits and Miles Boulton also scored as Cowichan avenged a 3-0 loss in Colwood in early October, JDF’s only victory of the season so far.

Head coach Tyler Hughes was unavailable for the game, so assistants Ryan Fusick and Darcy Kulai were entrusted with the reins.

“They said the boys played much better this time,” Hughes related. “The guys had a bit of a point to prove from the last meeting.”

The score was tied 1-1 at halftime, but Cowichan took over for the last 45 minutes.

“They started to create more chances and broke [JDF] down,” Hughes said. “From the sounds of it, they picked up the tempo and attacked quick and finished their scoring opportunities.”

With Sunday’s hat trick, Logan Kits leads the team and sits second in the U21 division with seven goals on the season.

“He’s a very talented player,” Hughes said. “He’s a quick, very smart player. He’s a handful to play against for sure. When he has the ball dribbling toward you, he’s very difficult to play against.”

United improved their record to 4-2-2, right in the middle of the pack, but closer in terms of points to the top three than the bottom three.

Cowichan’s next game is a big one as they play host to league-leading Prospect Lake on Sunday at 2:15 p.m. Prospect beat Cowichan 4-2 last time they met, but a lot has happened since then.

“They’ve got some very good attacking players,” Hughes noted. “We’re in a different spot than we were last time we played them. I’m looking forward to seeing it. It will be a good measuring stick for how far we’ve come and where we’re at right now.”
