Goals from Sarah Pinches and Elaine Whitfield helped Cayman’s ladies defeat Jamaica 2-0 in game one. Cayman’s women said the event is a great opportunity to celebrate the sport and culturally rich

“This is the 8th year we’ve been hosting this year with Jamaica, we just sent a team to Jamaica in Kingston back in October. They are excellent hosts and we love having them here” said Julia Meyerhoff.

“I think the best part about it is that it’s diverse. There’s a lot of people that play for different nationalities comes together to play the game which is the most important thing” said Kylie Jones.

In game two, Cayman took a 2-0 lead into half after goals from Mark Williams and Simon Barwick. In the second half, Jamaica’s Terrence Choudhry scored twice to draw 2-2 for the final. In the second mixed game, Cayman Stingrays defeated the Cayman Turtles 3-0. Trudi Ann Knight scoring twice while Rob Whelan added the third.

With the score 4-4 after 8 flicks,  Cayman’s Mark Williams stepped up to bury the winning goal for the 3-2 victory.

Jamaica’s Shaurnetta Russell says the international friendly is beneficial on and off the field.

“I usually make the trip annually. The game is two fold: Cayman hosts in May and Jamaica hosts in November each year. Every year, I use the event as part vacation, part network, and just reconnect with friends here on island. Of course its part of drinking part of dancing.”
