Cermaq City hope to bounce back after Saltspring loss

Cermaq City came up quite short, falling 4-1 to the home side

Campbell River Cermaq City FC travelled to Saltspring on Sept. 20 for their second league game of the season in the Vancouver Island Soccer League Division 3.

Cermaq City came up quite short, falling 4-1 to the home side.

Although Cermaq City carried much of the play, a stifling defence and a quick counterattack lead to two early goals for the home side.

Despite being down at half, the Cermaq side came out strong in the second half, but gave up an early goal that left them in a big hole that they just couldn’t get out of.

Cermaq’s lone goal came late in the game off a set piece when midfielder Peter McWilliams knocked in a solid header from a perfect cross delivered by left fullback John Jepson.

Cermaq will look to bounce back next weekend, Sept. 27, when they face Hellas FC at Willow Point Park at 2:15.
