LMG bounced from Jackson Cup quarters

Cowichan can clinch league title this Saturday

Cowichan LMG is out of the running for the Jackson Cup after a 4-2 loss to Bays United at Oak Bay High School last Friday.

“We deserved to lose,” Cowichan head coach Glen Martin assessed. “We were flat, and they beat us fair and square.”

Bays opened the scoring in the 12th minute, but Craig Gorman evened things on a feed from Colin Knight six minutes later. Bays led 2-1 at halftime, then scored two more before an own goal in the 88th minute got Cowichan a little closer.

Cowichan goalkeeper Darian Achurch had some big saves to improve his team’s chances in the match.

Cowichan still has two league games left, and need one point to clinch their fifth straight Garrison Cup as Div. 1 champions. They can secure that point this Saturday when they host Nanaimo at the Sherman Road turf at 7:30 p.m.
