The region’s summer soccer team keeps winning, and doing so in an exciting fashion.

The Mid-Isle Highlanders came back to beat the Victoria Highlanders 4-2 on Saturday at Ladysmith’s Forrest Field in Pacific Coast Soccer League action.

Renan Rebelatto, Ben Robson, Dan Cato and Paddy Greig scored for Mid-Isle FC, which is undefeated (5-0-1) this season.

“I thought it was great for our team to come back after being down two goals,” said Bill Merriman, the team’s coach, in a press release.

He said the comeback was even more impressive since the team was playing without striker Blaze Roberts, the league’s top goal scorer.

“The depth in this team is something that could definitely help us as we go into the second half of the season,” Merriman said.

GAME ON … The Mid-Isle Highlanders men play Chilliwack FC on Saturday (June 28) at 2 p.m. at Merle Logan Field. Admission is free.
