ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Islanders completed an eventful weekend of football in the BVIFA Men’s National League, on Sunday November 20, 2016 with a battling 3-1 victory over One Love FC.

Julian Davidson (3rd) and Fitzroy Daley (15th) settled any nerves early on and gave the Islanders a 2-0 lead, before Richard Morgan (31st) pulled one back for One Love.

At 2-1 going into the second half it was anyone’s game and the teams traded attacking endeavor with defensive solidarity until Kevin Fisher (89th) secured another 3 points for the Islanders, who remain atop the standings, unbeaten this season and with 24 points.

The Sugar Boys are tucked into second place, just 3 points adrift.

Rebels FC & Wolues inseparable

The Rebels FC and the Wolues FC are nestled into third and fourth and the pair were equally deadlocked after a six-goal thriller on Saturday.

Kevin Carragher (7th) put the Wolues ahead early, but Curtly Peters (16th) levelled the game, before Deangelo Thomas (29th) gave the Rebels a 2-1 lead. However, Carragher scored his second from the penalty spot right on half time, to make it 2-2.

Timothy Parsons (63rd) gave the Wolues a 3-2 lead, but Peters (72nd) made it 3-3 and despite a thrilling last ten minutes neither team would score again.

Old Madrid blank VG United

At the other end of the table, Old Madrid secured their 5th place position and gave themselves a chance of a top four finish with a 3-0 second half demolition of VG United.

Kenmore Peters netted twice (48th and 62nd) whilst Vaughn Homer (53rd) had doubled the Old Madrid lead.
