Great Scott! Cowichan makes a huge addition to its Div. 1 soccer lineup
Cowichan LMG Pringle opens the Div. 1 Island Soccer League season at Sherman Road Park Friday at 7:30 p.m. against the Lakehill Reds.
Cowichan coach Glen Martin, pictured, starting his 10th season with the club, said Lakehill is “a very young team. We’ve got to make sure we’re ready.’’
The Reds, while in Div. 2, made it all the way to the Jackson Cup final last season.
Cowichan, meantime, made a huge signing this week in proven scorer Steve Scott, who supplied considerable offensive punch with Sooke for several seasons.
Martin said it will be good to have “the monster we used to play against all the time’’ on Cowichan’s side.
Scott will make Cowichan an offensive force and should prove dynamite in combination with Tyler Hughes on corner kicks.
“He’s the big target man we’ve been looking for,’’ said Martin.
Scott is unlikely to play Friday, but should be available to Cowichan the following week.
LMG defeated Cowichan United Div. 2 3-0 in a tuneup game last week.
