Intense exhibition matches bring curtain down on football & futsal leagues

The culmination of the National Youth Leagues and Women’s Futsal League came with a galaxy of future stars of the game on show at the FIFA Stadium in East End/Long Look on Saturday, February 13, 2021.
Skills on display

In the U13 game, Panthers FC, the champion team overcame their All-Star Opponents, 3-0, with goals coming from Myles Penn (2) and Lashawn Gibbs.

The U13 Girls Exhibition added to the days play on an initiative from Julia Reich of the Wolues FC and saw a scintillating display that ended 2-2, with goals coming from Millie Cottreau, T’Nyah Richardson, Kyla Flax and Edith Ferrer.

The U17 Boys, named as North Ballers and South Strikers by Coaches Richie Morton and Morris Mark, also ended as a draw, with goals from Ikyjah Williams and Sam Potgeiter.

The Women’s game, which saw them playing on the full pitch and eleven a side after their Futsal Season, showed how quickly they are returning to full competitive action capability.

Tola Broderick scored the only goal of a fast-paced game for Tortola in their 1-0 victory over Virgin Gorda.

Successful day

All the Coaches agreed that the day had been a great success, sentiments echoed by BVI Football Association (BVIFA) Executive Board Members, Mr Avanell Morton, responsible for Youth Development; Mrs Loralee Walters-Abrams, the driving force behind getting so much Football organised throughout difficult times and BVIFA Treasurer, Mr Kenrick Grant.
