BVIFA National Youth Leagues continue with victories for Wolues FC U13s, One Caribbean FC (U13s & U17s) and One Love FC U17s

The BVI Football Association’s National Youth Leagues continued at the East End / Long Look venue over the weekend of December 12 – 13, 2020 with hat tricks for Hugo Hlavacek in the U13s and Jalen Prentice in the U17’s grabbing the headlines.

Hlavacek scored his first goal in the 1st minute of the game as the Wolues FC went onto to beat Old Madrid FC 9-1 and scored in the second minute before going onto complete his hat trick in the 16th minute. Further goals came from Quinn Woodfield (2), William Sanders, Ethan Mohamed and Charlie Potgeiter, whilst Derick Williams scored a consolation for Old Madrid.

“My boys put up a good fight for their first game and I’m super proud of them,” commented Coach Darren Jones. “We have a lot of work to do, but I also saw a lot of talent out on the pitch.”

Also, in U13 action, One Caribbean FC beat the Sugar Boys FC 2-0 with Devonte Smith scoring twice.

“The boys were a little raw, having not played much since the COVID-19 pandemic, but they had a determination to win,” stated Coach Morris Mark. “Super sub, Smith has great track speed and certainly showed that – not once, but twice!”

Meanwhile in the U17 National Youth League, Old Madrid came up against a firing-on-all-cylinders One Love FC outfit who duly romped to a 5-0 victory as Jalen Prentice scored a hat trick, including one dazzling virtuoso effort that saw him dribble past four opposition players before firing home. Shajahni Duporte and Felix Walters also found the net to round out the scoring.

“We lost our first game, so it was good to bounce back and see the boys settle into playing their game early,” noted Coach Javon Carty. “The boys were composed and disciplined from the outset and played a good game.”

Coach Mark returned to the field on Sunday and saw his One Caribbean FC U17 team to a 1-0 win against Rebels FC. “We had a well-prepared game plan to shut down their senior players and that made the difference,” he said.

Adrian Padilla scoring direct from a corner kick was the icing on the cake.
