Teams selected from the Virgin Gorda Football League, but also containing a few players from Tortola, travelled to Saint Maarten over the holiday weekend and returned home with bragging rights.

The overall team, which is known as the Virgin Gorda Under-13 Future Stars, ended the football festival undefeated.

It drew the first game 2-2 with Willful Skillful. The goals for Virgin Gorda in that match came from Azarni Callwood and Joel Mars.

The second game saw the Virgin Gorda-based team routing the Dominators, 3-0, with Callwood scoring twice and Jadon Abrams once.

The final game resembled a repeat of the draw against Willful Skillful, but just 1-1 this time round, as a Jaaden Quashie goal ensured the boys returned home unbeaten.

Also making the trip to Saint Maarten via Speedy’s Ferry were a senior team, an Under-17 boys team, and a women’s team.

The senior men were indebted to a Derol Redhead goal to secure a 1-1 result against Red Lion.

The women lost both their games to Saint Maarten, 1-0 and 2-1, with Lavern Fahie being the lone scorer.

Meanwhile, the Under-17 team won its first match against Willful Skilful, 3-1. The winning goals came from Phillip Graham, Chadwick Evans, and Kyreek Gardiner.

The said Under-17 squad then played out a 0-0 draw with the same opposition to round out the competition that ran from June 2 to 5.
