Persistence pays off for Quw’utsun FC

First-year VISL team earns second win of season

Quw’utsun FC’s persistence paid off on Sunday with a 3-0 win over Vic West Wanderers at the Si’em Lelum soccer field.

“The road has been bumpy,” coach Peter Moses acknowledged. “But we have another victory under our belt.”

The team has been competitive in its first year in Div. 3B of the Vancouver Island Soccer League, but wins have been elusive. Until Sunday, Quw’utsun had managed only one previous win, on Oct. 13.

“It was good to see our possessions and finishes put pressure on the defence of the Wanderers,” Moses said.

Recent addition Ryan Andre opened the scoring at 43 minutes with his second goal in three games in Quw’utsun yellow and blue. Johnny Williams buried the next two in the 75th and 90th minutes.

“We are starting to click more consistently and it is exciting for our staff and our fans to witness,” Moses said. “We will enjoy this feeling and get back to improving for next week.”

Now with two wins, four draws and five losses on the season, Quw’utsun FC will visit Castaways FC at Topaz next Sunday afternoon.
