United wins 15-1
The league’s hottest team faced the league’s last-placed team, and it wasn’t much of a game.
Nanaimo United’s Div. 1 men pummeled Juan de Fuca 15-1 on Sunday at Merle Logan Field to conclude the Vancouver Island Soccer League regular season.
JDF played with an undermanned lineup.
Andrew Adams and Jon McKenzie both scored hat tricks for United, Tony Maestrello and Dan Cato had two goals apiece and other goal scorers were Scott Newlands, Jordan Reems, Kyle Bate, Braidy Morrow and Chris Merriman.
The win lifted United into fourth place in the VISL’s top division, but the fifth- and sixth-placed teams still have games in hand. Depending on results on the out-of-town scoreboard in coming weeks, United could hang onto fourth and thus earn an automatic berth into provincial playdowns.
