ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The BVI Masters were defeated two goals to one by the Guayama Masters of Puerto Rico in their final match of the World Veterans Masters Soccer Tournament played in St Croix from March 5 – 8, 2015 when a draw would have seen them top their group.

Needing just a draw from their final match against the Guayama Masters of Puerto Rico to win their group, the BVI Masters failed to capitalise from a first half penalty when Humphrey Leue missed from the spot. “The Puerto Ricans were using a lot of dirty tactics and the referees were very poor,” was coach Elroy Mills' complaint after the match.

In what was reportedly an obvious goal, Meguel Gonsalves of Puerto Rico used his hand to knock the ball out of the goal, the referee called a penalty but failed to send the player off despite the protest of the BVI Masters. The same player went on to score two goals for Puerto Rico. Avandale Williams scored the BVI Masters only goal.

In the other two matches, the BVI Masters defeated USVI Masters one goal to nil from a Rohan Lennon thirty yards shot. In their second match, the BVI Masters defeated Retroactive of the USVI three goals to Nil with two goals from Franklyn Victor and one from Humphrey Leue.

In the other group, Delta Touchmasters came out on top over the T&T Milans on goal difference, after both teams played to a one goal draw.

Puerto Rico Guayama then went on to defeat Delta Touchmasters of the USA three nil to win the finals and the World Veterans Soccer Masters title.
