Outlaws return to win column

Cowichan LIWSA team beats Prospect Lake 3-2

After a strong week of training and the addition of some new recruits, the Cowichan Outlaws earned their third win of the season — and first since Sept. 24 — when they beat Prospect Lake 3-2 at Layritz Park on Sunday.

“Our training session this week had over 20 girls on Wednesday,” Outlaws coach Neall Rowlings said. “We are finally starting to draw some new blood.”

The win moved Cowichan from ninth to seventh in Div. 2 of the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association, as Cowichan and Vic West both leapfrogged over Prospect Lake and Vic West. The Outlaws’ performance was not well-served by the one-goal final margin.

“The score was not indicative of the outcome,” Rowlings said. “We severely outplayed them. We played with a 1-3-5-1 and our midfielders moved the ball around very well.”

Natasha Tymo scored twice and Emily Lindsay had one goal, while Amber Cook stood out as Rowlings moved her from position to position.

“It was a new challenge to have five substitutes to move around,” the coach said.

The Outlaws will visit second-place Lakehill this Sunday. Last time the teams played, on Sept. 17, Cowichan pushed hard for the tying goal, but narrowly missed out, having to settle for a 3-2 loss.
