United wins, ups record to .500

Nanaimo United kept pace in the standings with a big victory on their home turf on the weekend. The city’s Div. 1 men’s Vancouver Island Soccer League team defeated Lakehill 3-1 on Saturday night at Merle Logan Field.

Club manager Allan Jorgensen said in a press release that Saturday’s win was a good effort; he praised the call-ups, including Memo McCull, who scored his first Div. 1 goal of the season. Thomas Anderson and Jordan de Graaf also scored.

“It was nice to see the rest of the guys stepping up their game as we were missing a couple of key players,” Jorgensen said.

United (2-2) plays Prospect Lake on Saturday (Oct. 22) in Victoria.
