Loggers take five – five straight wins that is

The Sooke Loggers Division 3 mens soccer team continued their winning ways with five wins in a row.

The Sooke Loggers Division 3 mens soccer team continued their winning ways with five wins in a row, giving them a record of five wins, two losses and one tie. On Saturday, October 26, the Loggers defeated Naniamo 3-1. And this past Sunday, they defeated Alberni Athletic with a 4-1 victory.

In the game against Nanaimo, the Loggers played stronger in the first half. “We kind of took the foot off the pedal when we went up 3-0,” said head coach Drew Porter. “Not at all a disappointing day in terms of effort just a lapse of concentration and a tad of complacency I suppose is what led to Nanaimo’s only goal. The rest of the match we pretty much owned it.”

In this Nanaimo game, Porter was able to play all of the players. “And that is key ingredient in keeping my players happy,” he said. “Making sure all players get to see the pitch is a difficult chore for any coach but unfortunately, as the coach, that is the job I’m faced with. You’re really only as good as your substitutes. We have climbed the table to third spot and are know in striking distance of the top two. As was stated to me by my assistant coach Russ Urlacher ‘you don’t want to be playing Sooke right now’.”

Sooke’s next game is on Sunday, November 10 at 2:15 p.m., against the PLSC Lakers.

“I can’t sell my team enough,” says Porter, “the boys are worth watching.”
