ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - A Michael Baptichon first half strike was the only goal of the game as the Rebels beat One Love on Sunday July 9, 2017 to reach a quarter final tie against VG United, which they won 5-4 on penalties on Wednesday July 12, 2017.

The tie against VG was deadlocked 2-2 at full time after VG grabbed an early lead through Xavier John’s headed goal.

The Rebels equalised through Trevor Peters and then went ahead with a goal from Michael Baptichon, before Marknique Williams levelled the tie in the 84th minute.

The Rebels scored all 5 of their attempts from the penalty shoot-out before VG missed their last.

The Rebels move onto a semi-final clash with the Sugar Boys on Sunday July 16, 2017 at 5:00 P.M. on the A.O. Shirley Grounds with, at stake, a place in the Final against the Islanders, which is scheduled for Sunday July 23, 2017 at the East End/Long Look Stadium on the artificial pitch.

    Rebels, the Champions of the BVI. All other teams are pretenders and figments of their own imaginations.
    From T&T with love and support Brothers in Arms.
