Women’s soccer league teams jostle at the top

With seven of its nine scheduled weeks in the books, the Mid Island Women’s Soccer League is taking shape.

With seven of its nine scheduled weeks in the books, the Mid Island Women’s Soccer League is taking shape, including a tight race at the top of the standings.

The local team, Oceanside United, sits in third place in the league standings currently, with five wins and one loss, good enough for 15 points so far on this season.

They trail the Shooters (who have 16 points) and the undefeated Cermaq Outlaws (6-0 with 18 points).

Emma Taylor has been pacing the way for Oceanside United, finding the back of the net eight times so far this season.

She sits second behind the 12 goals of the Shooters’ Shelby Jeeves.

Oceanside United goalkeeper Pamela Richer leads the league in clean sheets on the season, not allowing a goal in four out of the six matches for  the local squad so far as the season runs down.

Oceanside United will look to solidify their spot in the standings with their remaining two games, taking on the Outlaws this Sunday in Campbell River.

Their final game of the season comes against the CVUSC Revolution, Nov. 15.

The league wraps up its season with a year-end tournament on Feb. 27-28 in Nanaimo.
