District Cup finals full of Valley teams

Ten Cowichan Valley Soccer Association teams have reached the finals of their respective Lower Island District Cup tournaments and will play for gold in Sooke this weekend.

Five teams will take the field on Saturday, and another five will play for their championships on Sunday.

Cowichan teams in action on Saturday include the girls U13 Gold facing Juan de Fuca, the girls U13 Silver 1 Cowichan United facing Bays United Trelawny, the girls U13 Silver 2 Cowichan Strikers taking on Juan de Fuca Hartlebury, the boys U13 Gold meeting the Juan de Fuca Net Rippers, and the girls U14 Silver Cowichan Killers against Bays United Silman.

All three teams won their Lower Island Soccer Association League Cups and the B Cup playoffs as well as the Island provincial qualifiers.
