ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - VG United stunned Old Madrid with first a late equaliser and then a penalty shoot-out victory on Wednesday July 6, 2017, to reach a Terry Evans Cup quarter final against either the Rebels or One Love.

Kenmore Peters had given Old Madrid a 17minute lead ahead of their trip to St Maarten, to participate in a Masters Tournament and it seemed for all the money in the world, the goal would see them safely past VG.

However, in added time at the end of the game, Charles Frederick popped to level the game and sent it to the drama of a penalty shoot-out.

Diego Jimenez then made two excellent saves as VG won 4-3 to progress.

“Their keeper kept them in the game and was their hero of the night,” said Old Madrid Player and Manager, Kenrick Grant, adding, “He made some important moves during the game to keep VG hopes alive and then in the shoot-out made two great saves to keep his team in the competition with the win.”

Islanders edge One Love

In other games, the Islanders beat One Love, 1-0. Thanks to a strike from National League Golden Boot, Kevin Fisher, who came off the bench to seal progress for his team into a semifinal clash with the Sugar Boys.

“We made the right changes in the second half and scored the goal that mattered. What you put into training comes out in the game and I knew where I wanted to place the ball; near post and left the keeper on his knees,” commented Fisher.

The Rebels beat F.C. Sea Argo 9-1, to keep their hopes alive and will next take on One Love for the right to face VG in that quarter final.

Both games this week will take place on Sunday July 9, 2017, with the Rebels against One Love at 5 PM and Islanders taking on Sugar Boys at 7 PM.
