ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - All the joy and misery of cup football was on show at the A.O. Shirley Ground on Sunday June 18, 2017, when the Wolues lost a penalty shoot-out, 4-2, to One Love FC in the Terry Evans Cup.

Christopher Farmer had given the Wolues the lead in the first half with a stooping clinical header and then the underdogs stayed ahead, through a string of fine saves from Andre Gaymes and once or twice the woodwork, until the 95th minute.

Richard Morgan, who despite being hampered by an injury and unable to be replaced from the bench, latched onto a ball over the top, flicked it past Gaymes with his head and guided in the equaliser.

The penalty shoot-out was all One Love as they kept their calm and were able to rejoice.

“I must commend the Wolues keeper,” commented One Love Coach, Marc Savage. “We had numerous chances, but Gaymes made some great saves and the Wolues played really well. The penalties were nerve wracking and no one likes a game to come down to that, but of course we are happy to have come out victorious.”

It’s not all over for the Wolues though as the Cup format is double elimination and they now await the loser of the game between Old Madrid and Sugar Boys.

The other completed fixture saw the Islanders defeat the Panthers on a free kick from Julian Davidson.

“The Panthers were very competitive and surprised us. However, we have a lot of experienced players and withstood their pressure well. My goal was a bit lucky and probably a mistake from their keeper, but it crossed the line and a goal is a goal,” noted Davidson.

Next weekend VG United take on FC Sea Argo on Saturday June 24, 2017, whilst on Sunday Old Madrid play the Sugar Boys and the Rebels play the Panthers.
