Islanders 5 points clear after draw with Wolues in National League

The Islanders FC and Wolues FC proved inseparable on Sunday, November 29, 2020, as the top two sides in the National League drew 1-1 at the East End/Long Look venue on Tortola.

The shared points favoured the Islanders as they now have a five-point lead in the race for the Championship with just two games to go and if they avoid defeat this coming weekend when they play Old Madrid FC and the Wolues fail to beat One Love FC, then the title will be theirs.

Kevin Fisher-Daniel fired his team into the lead in the 32nd minute of a tense game and it took the Wolues until the 67th minute to equalise through Robert Green.

One Caribbean edge One Love FC

Earlier in another action-packed weekend, One Caribbean FC secured a 3-2 victory over One Love FC, with all the goals coming during a frantic 40-minute period in the first half.

Rickson Augustin opened the scoring for One Caribbean in the 5th minute before Santos Caines made it 1-1 in the 8th minute. Kelvin Glasgow restored the lead in the 22nd minute and Richard Morgan made it 2-2 on the half-hour mark only for Glasgow to score his second and what turned out to be the winner in the 40th minute.

Panthers beat Old Madrid

The Panthers FC nabbed all 3 points from Old Madrid with a brace from Nigel Sanderson, including a 75th minute penalty sealing a 2-1 win after Nano Ottley had levelled the game at 1-1 in the first half and VG United and Lion Heart FC battled to a 1-1 draw after Jevonne Demming opened the scoring just before half time and Shevaugn Thomas equalised for Lion Heart in the 76th minute.

Coming up on Saturday December 5, 2020, at the East End/Long Look venue is Lion Heart FC against the Panthers FC at 4:00pm, whilst on Sunday, December 6, 2020, also at East End/Long Look with a 4:00pm kick off, the Islanders FC take on Old Madrid FC.

Meanwhile, over on Virgin Gorda at the Recreation Ground action starts at 5:45pm with One Love FC coming up against the Wolues FC and then at 8:00pm the Sugar Boys FC take on the Rebels FC.


Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.
