One Love F.C. reignited their season with a double digit win against VG Utd and the Sugar Boys dented the aspirations of the Rebels with a 5-1 victory as the National League continued on the weekend.

The timing of the fixture against bottom of the table, VG Utd was perfect for One Love, who have had a disappointing season by their usual high standards, but were able to help themselves to a 10-0 demolition of the shorthanded visitors.

The pre-Christmas presents came early and often, gift wrapped and hand delivered from the 9th minute when Trevor Ellis fired home, beating the keeper at his near post. Carl Stewart scored the first of what was to become a hat trick in the 22nd minute and further strikes before the break came from Damien Morgan and Oshane Rose.

Richard Morgan got in on the act with a second half brace as did Andre Thomas, before Stewart completed his hat trick, making the final score 10-0.

The Sugar Boys then cemented their second place in the standings with a comprehensive 5-1 win over the Rebels, who suffered their second successive defeat to teams in the top four.

Derol Redhead got a frantic opening few minutes going with a goal in the 4th minute, which was negated by Michael Baptichon’s penalty in the 11th minute, before Redhead put the Sugar Boys back ahead less than a minute later and Mohamed Kaschour made it 3-1 in the 17th minute.

Terrance Nanton increased the lead with a goal in the 79th minute and Akeem Hendrikson rounded out the 5-1 win with a goal in the 84th.

On Sunday, the Panthers dreadful start to the campaign continued unabated as they had no answer to a penalty kick in each half successfully converted by the Leagues top scorer, Kenmore Peters and lost 2-0 to Old Madrid.
