Points shared between TSS Rovers and Unity

The points – and goals – were shared between TSS Rovers FC and Unity FC this week, as this matchup finished 2-2 in both the Men’s and Women’s Divisions.

In the men’s game, it took a 72nd-minute strike from Rovers’ Michael Hennessy to make sure the spoils were shared, despite Unity taking a two-goal lead inside the first 32 minutes which included a Victory Shumbusho bicycle kick. In the women’s clash, Ainsley Ewasiuk’s goal three minutes from time secured a point for Unity, moments after Jenna-Lee Baxter thought she had won the game for the Rovers.

The results mean that Rovers remain top of the Men’s Division standings with a one-point lead, and now two points from the bottom of the Women’s Division, with Unity sitting fourth in both tables.

Roller-coaster weekend at Harbourside

There was a win for either side as Rivers FC took on Harbourside FC in this week’s action.

The Men’s Division saw Harbourside pick up a 3-2 victory at Rivers after Charlie Purcell’s winning goal twelve minutes from time. Vasilios Bagiopoulos’ first-half brace had been ruled out by Rivers’ Ryan Lewis and Elijah Dos Santos, but the eventual three points sees the visitors stay above their hosts in fifth.

Rivers would be the victorious side in the Women’s Division, however, as Katharine Stewart’s three minutes into second half added time sealed a 3-0 win – all goals coming in the second half. This was their first three-point haul of the season and took them up to fifth in the standings; Harbourside remain bottom and winless.

Burnaby beat Altitude

With the Men’s Division game postponed due to weather, the only action at Kinsmen Field on Sunday was the Women’s Division clash between these two sides – and it did not disappoint.

Burnaby FC prevailed with a 3-1 win – well-taken goals from Shanya Dhindsa and Isabella Muzzolini made sure of all three points for the visitors, who had accidentally let Altitude FC back into the game around the hour mark after a mistake at the back.

Burnaby moved above their hosts into second in the table, putting out a statement of intent to the rest of the division as we draw closer towards the halfway point of their inaugural League1 BC season.
