ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Islanders made it back to back wins in the National League, on Sunday March 25, 2018, overcoming One Love, 3-1, in the early game on the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground on Tortola.

Ranalie Cain had unfortunately given One Love a 35th minute lead with an own goal, but within the first minute of the second half Julian Davidson scored the first of his brace to level the game.

Davidson was on hand in the 61st minute to make it 2-1 to the defending Champions and then Jamal Sergeant wrapped up all three points in the 66th.

It was One Love’s first loss of the League.

Sugar Boys beat VG United

The win put the Islanders joint second in the standings with One Love, on 6 points, but still a long way behind the Sugar Boys, who maintained their 100% start to the season with a 4-2 feisty local derby victory over VG United.

Michael Castello opened the scoring for the Boys in the 19th minute, but Marknique Williams levelled for VG in the 23rd before Delano Barbour, on the stroke of half time put VG back in front, 2-1.

Romaine Codner made it 2-2 in the 53rd minute, Andres Bailey put the table toppers in front in the 60th minute and Codner fired home his second deep into added time to wrap things up.
