LMG Pringle guaranteed at least third

Cowichan LMG Pringle continues to jockey for position in Division 1 of the Island Soccer League.

Cowichan LMG Pringle continued its jockeying for position in Div. 1 of the Island Soccer League and provincial playoff placements.

Cowichan won 1-0 over Gorge Jan. 31 at Victoria’s Hampton Park.

That guaranteed Cowichan at least third place in the regular season standings, but “you want second place,’’ said coach Glen Martin. “Anything can happen after second place.’’

Second assures a place in the provincials.

After a scoreless first half, Martin brought in two subs and they clicked for the game’s lone goal, with Ben Robson setting up Connor Crichton for a one-timer 15 minutes into the second half.

Cowichan called upon Ivan Hutsulyak from the Mid-Island Under 21s to play goal, and he recorded the shutout.
