The Bermuda football teams claimed two more wins today [July 10] at the Island Games.

Bermuda women 4 – Hitra women 0

The Bermuda women’s football team continued their impressive start to the NatWest International Island Games in Guernsey after comfortably defeating Hitra at College Field today.

Bermuda, who beat Jersey 4-0 in their opening group one game yesterday, scored early goals through Ashley Tutas and Eva Frazzoni.

Tutas scored her first goal for Bermuda in the tenth minute from close range before Frazzoni latched onto a through ball and finished smartly seven minutes later.

The Bermuda captain was substituted soon afterwards because of an injury.

After the break, Bermuda continued to dominate, with substitute Symira Lowe-Darrell scoring a third midway through the second half and LeiLanni Nesbeth completing the scoring in the 73rd minute.

Bermuda, top of the group, face Aland in their final group one game tomorrow.

Aland beat Hitra 3-1 in their opener before losing 4-1 to Jersey.

Nesbeth, the Bermuda striker, told Bernews: “We’re all very excited going into day three tomorrow. We’re pretty exhausted. Rest and recovery will be super important now.

“We have to get the win tomorrow and then prepare for the semi-finals.”

Bermuda Men’s U23 2 – Orkney 1

The Bermuda men’s under-23 came through a heated and bruising encounter against Orkney at Blanche Pierre Lane today, thanks to goals from Ne-Jai Tucker and Enrique Russell.

Bermuda, who beat Froya 7-0 in their opening group three match yesterday, are top of the table going into their final group game against Greenland tomorrow.

Orkney took the lead through Craig Harrison in the eighth minute before creative midfielder Tucker fired in an equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

Tempers flared throughout the second period, but forward Russell kept his cool to score the winner from close range in the 67th minute.

Greenland drew 2-2 with Orkney in their opener before beating Froya 2-0.

John Barry Nusum, the Bermuda coach, told Bernews: “This was one of our test games. Orkney were a tough team, physical, and it was the test we needed.

“When they went one-up, it gave us a bit of adversity. Thankfully, the boys kept their composure, and continued to play.”
