Powell River Villa opens season at home

Soccer club hosts Juan de Fuca this Saturday at Timberlane Park

Powell River Villa returns to the pitch at Timberlane Park for the soccer club’s 2019/2020 season opener on Saturday, September 14.

Villa earned promotion to Vancouver Island Soccer League’s Division 1 with a second place finish in Division 2 last season. The club has not competed in the league’s top tier in more than a decade.

Juan de Fuca All Flows, who also moved up to Division 1 for this season, provide the opposition. The teams split a pair of regular season meetings in 2018/2019, each shutting out the opposition while enjoying home field advantage. In a rubber match, Villa defeated All Flows 3-0 in a Jackson Cup round-of-16 game played at Timberlane last March.

Kickoff on Saturday is scheduled for 1:30 pm. Fans will stay dry regardless of weather conditions, thanks to new covered stands installed at the park over the summer.
