July 10, 2011

The Bermuda Women’s Olympic Football team won their third and final game in the Preliminary Competition CONCACAF Caribbean Zone in the Dominican Republic at the Estadio Panamericano stadium.

Bermuda’s starting team included Kimmisha Perinchief, Julesa Robinson, Ebonie Burgess, Wayneisha Bean, Jaylen Bean, Akelya Furbert, Cheyra Bell, Jenay Edness, Tschana Wade, Shabena Crockwell and Keunna Dill.

In the 15th minute Bermuda took the lead when Bell scored a goal from a direct free kick from outside the box. The lead was doubled ten minutes later after some good ball possession allowed Wade to burst through into the box to finish uncontested, giving Bermuda a two goal lead.

Coach Morton brought on Donte Allen to replaced Crockwell at the half and with a two goal lead at the start of the second half, the Bermuda team grew in confidence and continued with good ball possession allowing them to create numerous one on one goal scoring opportunities.

In the 60th minute Khyla Brangman replaced Wade and seven minutes later it was 3 – 0 as Brangman found the back of the net with a smart finish inside the box.

In the 76th minute Allen cut inside from the left hand side of the field to squeeze the ball underneath the onrushing goalkeeper to increase the score to 4 – 0.

The final goal was scored by Bell in the 80th minute where she side stepped a few players inside the box to finish.

Finishing third in the group, the Bermuda team failed to advance to the next round of the 2012 Olympic Games.
