Sooke’s Hurricanes, the local team from the Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association (LIWSA), is faring extraordinarily well in their series.

Currently, they are placed second out of six teams, falling behind the top team, Juan de Fuca FC only because one of the Sooke games was cancelled. The FCs have played seven games, of which they  won six and lost one.

The Hurricanes have played six games of which they won five and tied one. They have yet to experience a loss.

Once before, earlier in the season on October 5, these two teams met. In that meeting, the Hurricanes came out ahead with a final score of 2-0.

Their second encounter scheduled for this past Saturday was cancelled.

The Sooke Hurricane’s are scheduled to play two more times in the calendar year: On December 1 at 10 a.m. they go up against the Ladysmith Strikers (currently ranked third) in Ladysmith, and on December 7 at 5:00 p.m. they face the Victoria Athletics (currently ranked fourth) at the Fred Milne soccer field.
