It was a goal fest at the Greenland football field in East End, Tortola on Sunday with 15 goals scored between the two games played.
In the first match between One Love United and Sugar Boys FC, despite controlling the narrative for the majority of the game One Love was unable to secure the three points after the Virgin Gorda side found the equalizer in the final minutes of extra time to draw the game 5-5.
Collin Lavia put One Love ahead in just the 6th minute before Andres Bailey equalized in the 29th minute.
Romaine Henry put the Boys a goal up on the stroke of halftime, but just three minutes later it was 2-2 thanks One Love’s Shayne Prince.
Lavia then completed a hat trick with goals in the 67th and 78th minutes to make it 4-2 but Bailey scored his second to reduce the deficit to 4-3 in the 83rd minute.
Latreil Williams made it 5-3 in the 89th minute, but just when it seemed like a set victory for One Love United, Sugar Boys captain Derol Redhead stepped up in the nick of time to make it 5-4, followed by a second goal by Henry to equalize in the eighth minute of added time.
