Comox Valley United shut out Saanich Fusion 1-0 in VISL Div. 2 action in Victoria on Saturday.
Nick Marinus scored the goal and Cameron McIntosh, filling in for ailing regular keeper Mack Zirkl, was brilliant. Second-place United made the trip with just one sub but played a solid game against the first-place Fusion.
United is three points up on third-place Westcastle in the race for promotion, although Westcastle now has a five-goal lead in goal differential after whipping Vic West 6-0 on the weekend.
United has a make-up game to play against Prospect Lake, with date and place TBA. On Feb. 16 they are in Victoria to play Div. 1 Bays Liquor Plus in their first Jackson Cup match.
