It was a successful weekend all round for the Victoria Highlanders soccer program.

The Peninsula Co-Op women’s team (3-2-2) got back on the winning track with a pair of Pacific Coast league victories, beating Abbotsford 4-0 Sunday after hammering TSS Academy 6-1 Saturday at Royal Athletic Park. Jackie Harrison scored twice to lead the offence against Abbotsford, while Abby Rhaymer and Maryse Reichgeld scored twice each Saturday.

The first-place Highlanders men (6-1-1) got past the Washington Crossfire 2-0 Saturday at RAP on goals by Jordie Hughes and Brett Levis.

The Highlanders men host the North Sound Sea Wolves Friday at RAP (7 p.m. kickoff), while the women are on the mainland for a pair of games this weekend.
