Derol Redhead rescued all three points for the table topping Sugar Boys on Sunday 22nd April, as his 84th minute strike secured a 3-2 win over the Panthers F.C. and Old Madrid F.C. leapfrogged the Islanders F.C. into third place with a 2-1 win over VG Utd.

Stanny Francis had put the Panthers ahead in the 41st minute before Redhead equalized in added time at the end of the first half. However, Francis scored his second in the 57th minute to make it 2-1 before Roger Roberts leveled in the 82nd minute and just two minutes later Redhead settled matters with his 9th goal of the season.

League action had kicked off on Saturday with Xavier John firing home both goals for Old Madrid, to take his season tally to six, with Lance Reynolds replying for VG and then the following day, the Wolues resurrected their campaign, overcoming the unpredictable F.C. Sea Argo, 3-0, with all the goals coming in the second half.

Andrew Titchner settled the nerves in the 51st minute, but it wasn’t until the last ten that the Wolues made sure of victory and three valuable points, when Marcus Hallam made it 2-0 in the 80th minute and Jose Antonio wrapped up the scoring in the 87th.

The Weekend action ended with the Islanders F.C. dropping more points in what is fast becoming their worst season since records began, when they held 1-1 by the Rebels, who took an early lead in the 20th minute through Michael Baptichon and then conceded a second half equalizer in the 58th minute scored by Rohan Lenon.
