ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The Islanders will play Sugar Boys in the Final of the Terry Evans Cup after both won their semi-finals on Sunday May 1, 2016 at the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds.

The Islanders saw off VG United, with four second half goals.

Kevin Fisher fired home a header to open the scoring in the 54th minute, Avondale Williams was on hand to smash home from the edge of the six yard box in the 68th, Francis Primo made it 3-0 in the 75th and Devon Leteen rounded out the goals in the 80th minute.

In the first half VG had held their own, but then had to switch Thomas Albert to goal keeper after getting a knock to his ankle and the team lost any offensive potency.

The second half sending off of Troy Williams was the catalyst to the Islanders finally making the break through.

Albert saved the resulting penalty from the sending off, but was powerless to stop the Islanders reaching the Final.

Sugar Boys too sweet for Old Madrid

Sugar Boys of Virgin Gorda overcame old Madrid 3-0 in the second semi-final.

Derol Redhead opened the scoring for the Sugar Boys in the 16th minute and the game was in cruise control for the visiting team when Denron Daniel doubled their advantage in the 33rd minute.

Michael Castillo made it 3-0 in the 51st minute to ensure the Final would be a Tortola/VG affair to savour.

The Terry Evans Cup Final is scheduled for the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds on Sunday May 8, 2016 and will be preceded by the Panthers women facing the Lady Ballstars at 5.00pm.
