The new League1 BC campaign continued with a week that had everything.

Unity impress on the road

Unity FC registered an unbeaten weekend in Matchweek Two as both their men’s and women’s sides made a visit to Burnaby Lake West.

In the Women’s Division, the hosts Burnaby looked set to pick up their second straight win following Kate Cartier’s opener in the 52nd minute, but Elizabeth Hicks’ 87th-minute equaliser meant that the points were shared.

Strikes from Grant Verhoeven, Mihai Hodut and Victory Shumbusho sealed a 3-1 win for Unity in the Men’s Division – the latter scoring in the seventh minute of injury time to wrap up the three points in style.

Harbourside find flow against Rivers

For Harbourside FC, it would be a week of firsts for both their League1 BC sides as they accumulated four points between them.

The men’s team picked up their first victory of the new campaign over their opponents Rivers FC. Goals from Charlie Purcell and Hussein Behery were enough to seal a 2-0 win and move to the top of the standings.

The women’s side also got their first point on the board with a 1-1 tie against Rivers; Jazmine Wilkinson’s second-half equaliser canceled out Kambria Mellum’s early opener.

Mixed weekend for Whitecaps

The Whitecaps FC Academy teams would encounter different fates in this week’s fixtures, as TSS Rovers took to the field for the first time this season.

TSS Rovers’ men’s team were 3-0 to the good at half-time, following goals from Devin O’Hea, Matteo Polisi and Gurman Sangha. The eventual 4-1 victory means that 2023 Final winners Whitecaps are still waiting for their first three-point haul of the new season.

It was a complete contrast for the Whitecaps’ women’s side who continued their perfect start to the new campaign with a big 7-0 win over the Rovers. A treble from Jeneva Gray proved a big help to the final scoreline.
