Cowichan’s soccer women edged by Vic West

A goal in the last two minutes of last Sunday’s game at Evans Park sent Cowichan’s Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association Div. 1 team to a 1-0 loss to Vic West.

"I called a defender up to kick a corner for a set play and unfortunately we didn’t score and Vic West got the ball and thundered down the field to score on us," Cowichan coach Marilyn Pugh said. "We are still not game fit so we struggled for a good portion of the game."

Cowichan did have chances to score, in particular when Jen Lecouteur broke away from a Vic West defender and went in oneon-one, unfortunately firing the ball right at the keeper.

The Cowichan team did get good news, however, learning that last year’s scoring leader, Nicole Pugh will be able to return to action soon once she gets an ACL brace.

Cowichan sits seventh in Div. 1 with one win and two losses.

Cowichan’s Over 30 women’s team also has one win and two losses, and sits third in the Over 30 B division.
