Cowichan United has officially won Div. 2 of the Island Soccer League.

The waiting game finally ended on the weekend when Nanaimo and Gorge went scoreless. Nanaimo was the last team with a chance to catch Cowichan, but needed to win both its remaining games and that obviously didn’t happen.

With that out of the way, United can now concentrate on the Jackson Cup.

United qualified for the quarterfinal round of the Cup by beating Div. 2 rival Nanaimo United.

Ironically, Cowichan’s next opponent is Nanaimo Div. 1 Saturday at 7 p.m. at Merle Logan field in Nanaimo. Player Neall Rowlings is hoping some diehard soccer fans will make the trip to support the team.

Cowichan Div. 1 lost in the Cup’s play-in round to Bays United 1-0.
