Green stars as Wolues defeat One Love in Super Six Football Tournament

The Wolues FC and Sugar Boys FC both maintained 100 % records in the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) Super 6 Tournament, beating One Love FC and Rebels FC respectively over the weekend.

The Wolues took the lead in the first half at the FIFA Stadium in East End when Robbie Green broke clear of the defense and left the keeper stranded with a square ball for Chester James to roll into the empty net.

Late in the second half, the Wolues were made to pay for not making the most of several opportunities when One Love equalised after Richard Morgan collected a lofted pass, escaped a defender, and finished nicely into the net.

However, the Wolues regained the lead with 10 minutes left to play when Green lofted the ball over the outrushing goalkeeper after collecting a Phil Nelson through ball and the win was left in no doubt when Noel Maxwell escaped down the right-hand side and found Green who had time to slot home his second of the game.

Sugar Boys defend home turf

The Sugar Boys are level on points with the Wolues, but second on goal difference after beating the Rebels 1-0 at the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground.

The lone and important goal of the game came in the 36th minute from Derrol Redhead.

Panthers claw past VG United

And in the other game played over the weekend, also on Virgin Gorda, the Panthers FC had a brace from Nigel Sanderson to thank for a 2-1 victory over VG United, who had taken the lead in the 11th minute.

The League’s top scorer, Sanderson, netted in the 19th and 21st minutes to secure all 3 points for Panthers. Sanderson has 8 goals in total.

Having gone behind early, the Panthers response was immediate, leaving Coach Wayne Phillip a happy man. “We started pressuring their defense and keeping possession of the ball,” he said.

“I’m immensely proud of Nigel (Sanderson) as he continues to dominate the league, also the midfield that kept breaking up play and forcing VG to play the ball backwards,” Phillip continued.
