Bermuda U15 Football Team Defeat Cayman 3-0

August 11, 2016

The Bermuda Under 15 Girls National Team started competition in the 2016 CONCACAF Under-15 Girls’ Championships on a superb note, defeating the Cayman Islands 3 – 0 today.

The match report from CONCACAF said, “In an intriguing encounter, Bermuda topped the Cayman Islands, 3-0. The Bermudians took a 2-0 lead into halftime on goals by Adia Gibbons [3’] and Leilanni Nesbeth [34’].

“Nia Christopher [60’] completed the scoreline, using the outside of her right foot to net off a cross whisked in from the left by Jaden Masters. The Cayman Islands, however, looked dangerous offensively throughout the morning, only to be thwarted on numerous occasions by Bermuda’s impressive defense.”
