VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- The Islanders FC returned to the top of the BVI Football Association (BVIFA) National League on Sunday, August 16, 2020, with a comfortable 3-0 victory over the defending Champions One Love FC on the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground.

Ranalie Cain opened the scoring for the Islanders on the stroke of half time from the penalty spot and then Devron Medica (59th min.) and Oswart Holder (65th) made sure all 3 points were taken.

With the convincing win, Islanders leapfrogged Wolues FC back into first place, but also saw them level the goal difference between the two sides.

Wolues held to draw by VG United

Playing the later game on the same pitch, the Wolues knew only a win would put them back to the league summit; however, they were thwarted by VG United, ultimately battling to a 2-2 draw, with the club second from bottom, but with a vociferous “home” crowd.

Noel Maxwell put the Wolues on their way, scoring in just the 7th minute, but then Sheldon Toney equalised in the 34th minute, before Marknique Williams put VG ahead in the 58th.

William Green calmed the Wolues nerves, netting the leveler in the 69th, but neither team could find a winner.

Sugar Boys blank Old Madrid

The Islanders are on 28 points and the Wolues 26, whilst the Sugar Boys are in 3rd place on 23 points, courtesy of a 2-0 win against Old Madrid FC with goals in each half by Andres Bailey (15th) and Rawl Hoyte (77th).
