ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Tim Parsons supported by his captain Phil Nelson—with a hat-trick of his own—scored no fewer than 10 goals, when their team, the Wolues Football Club (FC), romped to a 15 -0 thrashing of Sea Argo FC.

The two teams faced off on Saturday, August 18, 2018, at the A.O. Shirley Recreation Grounds, in Road Town, Tórtola, where the Wolues started the ball rolling early, with Simon Cross finding the back of the net in the 9th minute of play.

Back-to-Back Goals

It took over 10 minutes before Parsons got into the thick of things with teammate, Christopher Smith, scoring five minutes later bringing the score to 3-0.

Standing referee, Eldon Williams, subsequently awarded a penalty to Wolues in the 41st minute of play and captain, Phil Nelson took the responsibility to convert for a 4-0 lead.

Once Parsons got a taste of goal scoring, he didn’t seem to want to stop scoring, adding two back-to-back goals in the 45th minute to give him his first hat-trick of the game and to end the half on a whopping 6-0.

Captain Nelson opened the goal scoring in the second half scoring in the 57th minute of play and then two minutes later, the goal machine, Parsons got his first goal of the second half in the 59th minute of play.


James Drury then chipped in with a goal of his own in the 65th minute before Parsons followed up with two more goals to complete his first ever double hat-trick in a game and becoming the first person in the VI to score a double Hat-trick in a national league game.

Captain Nelson showed great support completing his hat-trick by scoring in the 82nd minute of play and six minutes later in the 88th minute scored again.

In the dying moments of the game, Rory Greenan and Kieran Bown were both able to join the goal fest with one goal each in the 89th and 90th minute of play.

For the Wolues it was a very satisfying victory and sent the message to the other teams that they are the team to watch next year.
