United to face first-placed foe

When Nanaimo United has its best starting lineup on the pitch, it’s as good as anyone.

So the city’s Div. 1 Vancouver Island Soccer League team (7-5) will be hoping to put its best foot forward this Friday (Jan. 24) as it host the first-placed Saanich Fusion (9-1-2) in a 7 p.m. match at Merle Logan Field.

Admission to United home games is always free.
