Campbell River Cermaq were back on the road this weekend, this time in Victoria to face-off against a well established Gorge FC team.

Gorge have found themselves in the top three of the VISL league table for a majority of the season, and would prove worthy opponents.

Campbell River started the match defending comfortably.

Gorge FC carried the play and controlled a majority of the possession.

However, Cermaq did enjoy the odd counterattack, getting shots on goal and working the Gorge FC goalkeeper.

Around the 27th minute it all came unglued. What had looked like a strong defensive performance from Cermaq, began to fall apart.

A misplayed back pass, miscommunication with a goalkeeper, and some slack marking from defenders saw Gorge going into the halftime whistle, 4-0 up.

Campbell River would recover with a productive second half. Defending well, physically engaged and beating the home team to the ball.

With the last kick of the game, new arrival Dylan Sparling would fight off a defender to go one on one with the goal keeper, scoring a fantastic but meaningless goal.

The final score, 4-1 in favour of the Victoria side.
