ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Hat tricks in both Ladies and Men’s games highlighted the opening weekend of the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) League Season, on Sunday April 17, 2016, with Morgan Creque sending the Lady Ballstars to an emphatic 6-0 win over VG United Ladies and Thomas Albert banging in four for VG United Men in the 5-1 victory over the Ballstars in the Terry Evans Cup.

A goal fest greeted a large crowd as domestic football also made a return to the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds for the first time since 2014, with, after a presentation of the players to BVIFA President Mr Andy Bickerton, Sharlene Pond and Amanda Emmanuel opening the scoring against a new look and young VG team.

Creque scored her first before Pond added her second to make it 4-0 at half time, before Creque netted twice more to round out her hat trick and the goal scoring to make it 6-0 at the final whistle.

The men then took centre stage on the luscious grass surface of the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds with Albert notching a first half hat trick for VG United after Swerine Joseph opened the scoring, to make it 4-0 at the break.

Mo’Blo Casey Ogbonna pulled one back for the Ballstars in the second half, but Albert scored his fourth from the penalty spot moments later to make the final score 5-1.

The night’s last game saw the Islanders run out 3-1 winners in a tense game with plenty of incidents and enthusiastic tackling from both teams.

All square at 1-1 going into the second half, the Wolues were undone by an own goal from James Drury and a game clinching strike from Kern Mitchell.

In the first half, Mark Gardiner’s opener for the Wolues was cancelled out by Avondale Williams.

Next Sunday, also at the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds, the Panthers Women face the Avengers at 3.30pm, whilst in the Terry Evans Cup, Old Madrid take on the Panthers Men at 5.15pm and the Sugar Boys face the Haitain Stars at 7.00pm.
