ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Old Madrid scored an equaliser in added time and then went onto beat Wolues 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out as the Terry Evans Cup continued on Saturday July 1, 2017 on the A.O. Shirley Grounds in Road Town.

There were little signs of the drama that was to unfold after Old Madrid had taken a comfortable 1-0 lead, through Kenmore Peters, into the half time break. However, the game turned on its head early in the second half as first Allesandro Pallandino, via the penalty spot, and then Phillip Nelson scored to put the Wolues up 2-1.

There was to be another twist in the tale though as one minute into added time at the end of the game, Kadmel Clarke popped up to equalise and send the tie into penalties.

As the players took turns from the spot and the pressure mounted as attempts were missed, it took a cool head to net the winner and it was Shevorn France of Old Madrid who sealed the win.

“I felt determined and focused, I went to the ball with a willing and it went in. The Wolues came back strong during the game, but we got ourselves back into it and now can look forward to the next game,” France said.

Cup action continues day at 5:00 PM when the Islanders take on One Love and then at 7:00 PM, the Sugar Boys face VG Utd.
