So Close... Vic West FC Ladies Do Us Proud
Well that was exciting but ultimately disappointing, but hey.... The D1 Vic West FC Women hosted the very young Vancouver United, Saturday at UVic, in a BC B Cup Semi Final. The visitors thrashed JdF 8-1 the previous week, but the Wests were prepared. It was a fairly even first half, slight edge to the visitors, but with both teams creating chances.
After the break, it continued to be tight but the break through came when Christa MacAtee broke in on goal, striking it high, left side, giving the Wests the lead at the 65' mark. Again the Wests had their chances to increase the lead but at the 75' mark, Vancouver equalized with a brilliant long range strike. No chance for Lyndsay in goal.
United picked up the pace using their youth to advantage. It inevitably paid off when they grabbed the winner with five minutes to go, again giving Lyndsay no chance to stop it. The Wests fought to the end but could not get an equalizer. Just a tad short. However, you did Vic West FC proud ladies. Hats off to you all. Final 2-1 Vancouver.

A Parking Warning to ALL Members
This is a reminder and a 'warning' to ALL Club members, when parking in the Clubhouse neighbourhood. Do not park on the yellow curbs, do get off the road and up on the dirt when parking directly across the street from the Clubhouse.
Some business parking lots do not mind your 'after hours' use(and don't ask me which ones) BUT and most importantly....
You can NEVER park in our immediate neighbour's parking lot next to Complete Residential Management, 3267 & 3273 Tennyson.This is strictly verbotten. And it doesn't matter what day or time of day; it is 24/7.
The owner of that lot has warned us before and now he is threatening to TOW any unauthorized vehicle away, anywhere in that lot.
Signs will be posted at the Clubhouse as a reminder to members, but please ensure all of your team and your guests, who are not regular visitors to the Clubhouse, are made aware of this.
