ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- It was another goal scoring fest when play in the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) National League continued on Sunday March 11, 2018.

After a hectic match day number three, One Love went joint top, the Rebels are still winless and the Wolues got their first points of the season as 17 goals, 11 cautions and 3 penalties were shared amongst 3 games.

The 3:00 P.M. kick off over in Virgin Gorda saw Old Madrid come up against the Wolues, who with a new look side found themselves 3-0 inside the first 40 minutes, first through Phillip Nelson in the 11th minute and then a brace from Mark Gardner in the 33rd and 37th minutes.

Kenmore Peters pulled one back for Old Madrid in the 45th minute before Christopher Farmer and Christopher Smith put the result beyond doubt, scoring in the 60th and 82nd minutes respectively.

Nelson who then add another in the 87th minute to put the icing on the cake for the 6-1 win.

Panthers beat Rebels

Back on the A.O. Shirley Ground on Tortola, the Panthers took on the Rebels and come out with all 3 points, winning 3-, in a feisty game that saw no less than eight bookings.

All the goals came in the second half with Shannon Lawrence opening the scoring in the 53rd minute, Prevell Asson doubling the lead in the 72, Michael Baptichon pulling one back for the Rebels, from the penalty spot in the 73rd and Wayne Phillip wrapping it up for the Panthers in the 81st minute.

One Love overcome valiant FC Sea Argo

The final game, back on Virgin Gorda saw a Carl Stewart hat trick and a brace from Richard Morgan condemn F.C. Sea Argo to another heavy defeat, 5-1, despite staying in the game up until almost half time, when Stewart scored the first of his three (38th) for One Love.

Morgan’s 11th minute penalty had been cancelled out by Janel Ferdinand, also from the spot, in the 21st minute.

Stewart would add further goals in the 49th and 77th minutes, either side of Morgan’s second in the 54th.

One Love came out with the win but a 9-man FC Sea Argo won the hearts of the large crowd at the Virgin Gorda Playfield due to their never-say-die attitude.

      What does the minister have to do with this? It is the associations that set their programmes and fixtures. If you have concerns about your chosen sport, speak up or get involved in the running of the association.

      Once again, the complainer is someone watching from the side, waiting for someone to do things he isn't prepared to do. See also post Irma clear up!
