Wolues defeat Islanders in BVIFA Super 6!

Despite going a goal down early in their Super 6 encounter with Islanders FC, the Wolues FC recovered to grab a 2-1 victory on Sunday, February 21, 2021, at the BVI Football Association’s new stadium venue in East End.

Knru Charles latched onto a diagonal pass over the top in the 6th minute to catch out the Wolues defence and coolly slot home to give the National League and Presidents Cup Champions, Islanders, the lead.

Wolues; however, sprung to life and responded 13 minutes later when Tim Parson rose highest to bullet home a header from a Phil Nelson corner.

In the 27th minute, Nelson scored what turned out to be the winner from the penalty spot, after his original shot was handled by an Islanders’ defender in the box.

The scoreline stayed at 2-1 as both defences remained resolute throughout a tense, tactical, probing second half from both teams.

One Caribbean squeeze past One Love

One Caribbean FC had a hard-fought 1-0 win over One Love FC in a game that saw One Caribbean hand senior debuts to three U17 players in Adrian Pallidin, Gethin Jones and Jarrell Fredricks who, along with Miles Creque, held One Love at bay until some more experienced players, held up through work commitments, arrived.

The youngsters though more than held their own and kept the game goalless; however, with the additional players, the team began to grow in confidence and started moving the ball around with pace and precision to create more and more scoring opportunities.

Towards the end, fitness told on the tiring One Love players and just when it seemed a share of the points was inevitable, up popped striker Kelvin Glasgow, who scored in added time at the end of the game to snatch all three points.

Panthers rip Old Madrid apart

Panthers FC opened the scoring against Old Madrid FC, but then found themselves 2-1 down, before romping to a 5-2 victory at the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground.

Nigel Sanderson netted the first of his four individual goals in the 9th minute, but Kendrick Leslie equalised in the 27th and Philroy Peters put Old Madrid ahead in the 34th.

Sheldon Harry made it 2-2 just 3 minutes later and Sanderson added another three, including two penalties in the 43rd, 45th+2 and 54th minutes to secure a comfortable win.

VG United blank Rebels

And to round off the weekend, VG United handed Rebels FC a second straight defeat, 2-0, also on the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground, with goals coming from T’Khoi Richardson in the 50th minute and Levon Williams in added time at the end of the game.
