Highlanders men await playoff opponent after winning PDL division

The Victoria Highlanders are PDL’s Northwest Division champions though the team finished on a bittersweet note

The Victoria Highlanders are PDL’s Northwest Division champions though the team finished on a bittersweet note with a 2-1 loss to the Portland Timbers at Royal Athletic Park on Saturday. The Timbers had already helped the Highlanders clinch one night earlier with a draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

It’s an early conclusion to the regular season schedule for the Highlanders as the Premier Development League schedule continues for another week. Only then will the Highlanders’ playoff opponent be determined.

The Peninsula Co-op Highlanders women’s team extended its Pacific Coast Soccer League win streak to 11 games as it defeated the Okanagan FC 6-0 at RAP on Saturday and the Fraser Valley Action 3-0 at Tyndall Park on Sunday. The Co-op Highlanders (12-1-2) are second to the Vancouver Whitecaps (14-2-0).
