The football semi finals of the Wendoll Williams Cup are all set to take place this coming Sunday, June 12th, after the Islanders overcame a tenacious One Love, 2-0 and the Panthers secured a 2-1 win over VG United, last weekend.

The Panthers actually went a goal down in their quarter final against VG, after Joshua Ramprashad fired home in the 7th minute.

Shamoy Thompson then restored parity for the Panthers in the 20th minute and Gordon Prince netted what turned out to be the winner in the 42nd.

The Islanders had a gift of an opening goal, when Kevin Fisher took advantage of a goal keeping error in the 6th minute, but One Love, who had been out of football for a while, grew into the game and showed they will become the force to be reckoned with that they once were.

No further goals came in the first half and for 20 minutes at the start of the second, One Love chased, harried and thoroughly frustrated the Islanders.

However, as a lack of match fitness began to take its toll, the Islanders cushioned their lead with a well directed header from Julian Davidson to secure their place in the last four.

The Women’s semi final between Ballstars and Avengers, is scheduled for 4pm on Sunday 12th June and will be followed by Wolues against Sugar Boys at 6pm.

The Panthers will play the Islanders at 8pm.

The Wendoll Williams Cup Final is scheduled for Sunday 19th June with action starting at 5pm.
