Vic West FC

Super Bowl Party Update
Thanks to everyone that came out and enoyed the big game at the clubhouse. A good time was had by all.

Congrats to Lorraine for winning the big money in the Squares contest. She skillfully choose the final score and walked out with $100. (Minus the drinks she bought for the rest of us.) Thanks Lorraine!

The half time winner was Vic West itself. The club chipped in for some Squares and won $86. Rumour has it the money will go towards the new TV....

And the Chili Trophy winner is.... Actually the question is who has the trophy? Check your houses people. We can't announce the winner until we see the hardware again.

Looking forward to next year's game already. Go Seahawks!

Casually Cruising for Top Spot
Vic West rolled into Lochside to face the Cordova Bay Bobcats. After a couple gimme games Vic West was eager to have a challenge.

The first half was tight, with both sides having some momentum, but All Star striker's Declan O'Callaghan and Dylan Collins combined for a speedy attack that the big Bobcat defenders couldn't keep up with and Dylan popped a ball in to give the lead to the Casuals.

The Bobcats took advantage of a slow second half start and tied the game 1-1 about five minutes in. A few poor tackles and harsh words from Bobcat defenders intending to knock Vic West off their game did the opposite. Vic West woke up and Kalvin Levirs threaded a beauty ball through to Declan who put it in the side netting for a 2-1 lead. Shortly after Declan owned about 4 Bobcats in a beauty run for a brace. Celebrations were... jovial.

Not to be outdone, Dylan got another for a brace as well. Final 4-1 Casuals.

D3 Ladies Came To Play
The Wests dominated the game and were out to a 2-0 lead by half time, on 2 goals by Lorraine.

However the second half had a sting in the tail for the Westers. Prospect lake had three breakaways and scored two goals. If the saying "we could not buy a goal" ever applied it was in the second half for Vic West. We had numerous opportunities, hit the post, had one cleared off the line and generally just could not finish.

A 2-2 tie, that keeps the dream of promotion alive. A trip to Nanaimo United in a top of the table meeting next Sunday. There will be no love lost during this valentines day clash.

D1 United Women beat the weather & JDF
Crazy weather for the Friday night lights game with Vic West D1 United women playing hosts to JDF.

The Wests edged the play for the most part & battling against the elements scored the only goal of the game late in the second half to take a well deserved victory.

Beautiful finish by Carmen sealed all three points for the home side in a great team effort.
