APRIL 17—For half of the match, Lucian Stars matched league leaders Islanders, playing them to a 2-1 halftime score.

Perhaps Islanders needed the halftime mockery from Lucian Stars’ goalie Benjamin Camille to wake up, after he told them, that with a full squad and a bench, they should be playing far superior to his squad of eight after they began with seven players.

Led by Henroy Mitchell who completed a hat trick, Islanders came out in the second half and scored three times for a 5-1 victory.

Andy Davis had given the Islanders a 1-0 lead two minutes in, before Brian Cheslery raced down the right side, dribbled solo through the defense then beating charging goalie Monty Butler to knot the match at 1-1 another two minutes later.

Mitchell put Islanders up 2-1 in the 21st frame, as both teams carried the score into halftime, although Islanders blew several chances at goal.

Valdo Anderson gave Islanders some cushion in the 49th when he scored. Three minutes later, Mitchell added his second score and capped the scoring in the 75th for his hat trick.

In the other men’s game, Ball Stars and Old Madrid played to a scoreless draw.

Activities began with a women’s match in the Johnny Hassan league, where Virgin Gorda’s No Fear handed the Panthers their second loss by an identical 2-0 score on two first half goals.

Striker Kelaine Smith broke the scoreless match in the 22nd minute of play, as the Panthers’ goalie kept them in the game by stopping several shots. Lavern “Ebony” Fahie—who missed earlier opportunities—sealed the victory 10 minutes later, with her goal from a penalty.
