LOWER ISLAND SOCCER ASSOCIATION
Weekly Re-Scheduling for February 1/2
The attached master re-scheduling notice for this weekend, February 1 & 2, is three pages long. In addition to being attached to this email it will also be posted on the LISA website.
All Tim Satterford Cup semi-finals were played this past weekend. The winning teams advance to the finals February 8/9 at PISE. The schedule for the finals is attached and will be posted on the LISA website.
The finals in the Lower Island playdowns for the Provincial/Coastal B Cup competition will be held this coming weekend in six divisions: Boys U14, Boys U17, Boys U18, Girls U14, Girls U16 and Girls U17. Four divisions still have semi-finals to play (which are scheduled for this weekend) so their finals will take place the following weekend (February 8/9): Boys U15, Boys U16, Girls U15 and Girls U18.
Cup scores, for the Satterford Cup and Provincial/Coastal B Cup as well as the Lower Island District Cup (at the end of the season), are not posted in the same place as league games. For cup results go to the drop-down box under the COMPETITIONS tab and select “Cups >” and then click on the cup competition you wish to view – District Cup, Satterford Cup or Provincial Cup – A, B and Coastal Cups.
Please note, by BCSA rules, Provincial/Coastal B Cup matches have priority over all other games, programs or events (including field assignments and start times).
SCORE RECORDING – All teams must report the scores of their games (league and cup) to their score recorder. And if you do not play a scheduled game then you must also report to your score recorder and provide the reason why your game did not take place – even if your field was closed because it was covered in snow. The Lower Island district covers a vast area with varying weather patterns. Fields can be closed in one community but in a nearby neighbourhood there can be fields, including grass fields, that are open.
When reporting scores don’t forget to include the gender, age division and level of play (e.g. Boys U15 Silver, Girls U15 Gold, etc.). In addition include the name of both teams and make sure the winning team is clearly identified (or if it was a draw).
If reporting a score for a cup match that was not decided in regulation time include the tied score at the end of regulation, and for the Provincial/Coastal B Cup also include the score at the end of extra time. If the B Cup match is decided by a penalty shootout and you know how many penalty shots each team took and how many of those penalties were goals then please include that information as well.
Make sure you check the “league play” section of the LISA website to confirm all the league games you have played have been posted. If there is no score posted for a league game that game is considered outstanding and therefore could be re-scheduled by LISA even though you have already played it.
League champions will be declared in a few weeks so please make sure your results are up to date.
League games are identified by the date for which they are listed on your schedule. So if you are checking for scores for outstanding league games or for “games played in advance” of their original date they will be posted alongside their original date not the date on which they were actually played.
