Cermaq Wave taste defeat for first time

Cermaq City Wave FC endured their first defeat of the season in the VISL Div 2 this past weekend. On a difficult surface  it was the young Nanaimo side who adapted to the challenge the quickest of the two teams.

The visitors made a strong start and were the better of the two teams in the opening 15 minutes. Cermaq regained their share of control and were looking to take the upper hand when Nanaimo took the lead on a penalty shot after 22 minutes. Cermaq received a second blow when they had a player red carded two minutes later and were reduced ten men. The second half saw a spirited effort but the few half chances created were met in competent fashion by the Nanaimo keeper.

A couple of excellent forays forward by Pete McWilliams saw him go close but each time the ball went agonisingly the wrong side of the post. Nanaimo scored two additional goals with excellent finishes from swift forward plays.

The Campbell River side still retain top spot in the VISL division as both second and third place teams also dropped points.

These results show the  battle for the top two places and a spot in the Premier Division is between as many as eight teams with any club capable of beating another on any given weekend. This Sunday the Cermaq boys travel to Castaways onSunday afternoon and return to Campbell River on Saturday Dec.  5 when they entertain Cowichan 2 p.m. at Willow Point Park.
