Late goals spur Young Masters

It looked like an easy win for the Campbell River soccer club but they needed three goals in the last 10 minutes

Mainstream Canada Young Masters extended its unbeaten run in Division Four of the Vancouver Island Soccer League.

It was anything but the comfortable victory over the last place Saanich Fusion. Despite dominating possession, Campbell River failed to capitalize on numerous goal scoring opportunities and found themselves scoreless after 80 minutes of play.

Fortunately, the deadlock was broken when Shane Dumanoir just beat the excellent Saanich keeper to a loose ball to get the vital opening goal. Minutes later it was 2-0 when Shane Berry converted a penalty kick. The third goal was scored by Jason Fawkes after an excellent low cross from Kevin Shelswell.

The team will now take a two-week break before embarking on away games to Fernwood and Juan De Fuca before the Christmas vacation.
