Third straight loss for Cowichan Steelheads

After their third straight loss, all without scoring a single goal, the Cowichan Steelheads are doing some soul-searching. "I have to take full responsibility for Saturday’s loss," player-coach George White said after Cowichan’s masters B soccer team lost 3-0 to the Cordova Bay Bobcats. "I tried to move to a new system that addressed some of our previous growing pains, only to expose new ones." The Steelheads started the season with two wins and two draws, but have fallen in the standings with three consecutive defeats.

"We decided at the beginning that we are striving to win, and that has been a huge battle for me while trying to get everyone fairly into the rotation," White said. "It is impossible to make everyone happy I have realized, and those of us that are having fun and enjoying it are going to regardless, so we may as well win because that is a bit more fun."

In Div. 2 of the Vancouver Island Soccer League, Cowichan United won 1-0 over Prospect Lake Black last Saturday, getting their only goal from Jacob Ready, while Darian Achurch recorded the shutout and Colin Knight earned MVP honours.

United will visit Lakehill this Saturday, and the Steelheads will head to Vic West on Sunday.
