Busy week for Unity

Unity FC’s women’s team won twice in five days to move up to second in the standings. They ran riot against Burnaby FC to win 6-1 thanks in part to Charity Field’s two goals and two assists, and Sunday’s game saw them edge past Altitude FC to win 2-1; Elizabeth Hicks’ second-half strike ultimately sealed the points.

Unity now have a 10-point cushion in the playoffs, with Altitude occupying the last top-four spot at the moment, three points ahead of TSS Rovers FC.

Wednesday’s action from the Men’s Division saw the hosts denied all three points after a 1-1 tie with rock-bottom Burnaby; Lachlan Will’s strike 20 minutes from time cancelling out Jiwon Seo’s opener. It didn’t get any better for Unity on Sunday, as visitors Altitude won 2-0 thanks to goals from David Zegarra and Anastazi Ahayo.

Sunday’s result means Unity stay fourth in the table, one point above Harbourside FC on the other side of the playoff line, while Altitude sit second.

Whitecaps see off Rovers

TSS Rovers FC’s men’s and women’s teams were at home for the second week running, only this time, and it was Whitecaps FC Academy who brought their game to Swangard Stadium this week.

The men’s team saw a priceless point cruelly snatched away by Amirmahdi Ghasemi’s late winner for Whitecaps; the 2-1 defeat for the hosts leaves them third with games in hand. Whitecaps meanwhile sit level on points with Altitude at the top of the standings.

Kaylee Hunter and Jeneva Hernandez Gray were on the scoresheet once again as the Whitecaps’ Girls Elite team beat their hosts 2-0 to take them five points clear of second-placed Unity. Whitecaps are still yet to be defeated so far this campaign.

Harbourside do the double over Burnaby

It was all smiles for Harbourside this week as their men’s and women’s sides claimed maximum points against their Burnaby.

The Women’s Division game finished 2-1 to Harbourside, with strikes from Erin Jensen and Sophie Miranda proving too much for Burnaby to overturn. Although Harbourside remain bottom, the hosts’ long-awaited first win of the campaign sees them close the gap on sixth-placed Rivers to a point, while two back-to-back defeats result in Burnaby slipping to third.

The Men’s Division clash ended 3-1 to the hosts via goals from Callum Magog, Tristan Cornwell, and Billy Bagiopoulos. It’s a result that sees Harbourside strengthen their grip on fifth and nudge closer to the playoffs, while Burnaby continue to prop up the standings.
