VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI- Derol Redhead rescued all three points for the table topping Sugar Boys on Sunday April, 22, 2018 as his 84th minute strike secured a 3-2 win over the Panthers F.C. in National League play at the Virgin Gorda Playfield.

Stanny Francis had put the Panthers ahead in the 41st minute before Redhead equalised in added time at the end of the first half. However, Francis scored his second in the 57th minute to make it 2-1 before Roger Roberts levelled in the 82nd minute and just two minute later Redhead settled matters with his 9th goal of the season.

Old Madrid beat VG United

League action had kicked off on Saturday April 21, 2018 with Old Madrid F.C. leapfrogging Islanders F.C. into third place with a 2-1 win over VG United.

Xavier John firing home both goals for Old Madrid, to take his season tally to six, with Lance Reynolds replying for VG.

The following day, the Wolues resurrected their campaign, overcoming the unpredictable F.C. Sea Argo, 3-0, with all the goals coming in the second half.

Andrew Titchner settled the nerves in the 51st minute, but it wasn’t until the last ten that the Wolues made sure of victory and three valuable points, when Marcus Hallan made it 2-0 in the 80th minute and Jose Antonio wrapped up the scoring in the 87th.

The Weekend’s action ended with the Islanders F.C. dropping more points in what is fast becoming their worst season since records began, when they were held 1-1 by the Rebels, who took an early lead in the 20th minute through Michael Baptichon and then conceded a second half equaliser in the 58th minute scored by Rohan Lenon.

Play on April 28, 2018 will see Wolues tackling Rebels at the A.O. Shirley Ground from 4:30 P.M. while on Sunday April 29, 2018 F.C. Sea Argo will square off with Islanders at the Virgin Gorda Recreation Ground from 5:30 P.M.

One Love and Old Madrid will do battle at the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground from 4:30 P.M.
