Israel v Cayman Islands


Cayman take their second win on the round robin circuit, giving them the chance to contend for 17th place. 

They beat Israel by 45 goals which bolsters their goal difference to +80, but in tomorrow's 17th place decider, opponents Malta though equal on points have a slightly better goal difference. 

The Caribbean side, coached by Australian Gillian Lee, played four steady quarters, using everything they've learned in the last 12 months of development and in the last week, and took a 71-26 win.

They snapped up the first quarter confidently, with a seven goal scoring spree, and shot an incredible 20 goals from 21 attempts. Captain Martika Williams and coach Gillian Lee both put it down to conviction.

Lee still wants the Caymaynians to concentrate harder for the duration of the game, and is looking for this in tomorrow's game. "It's about being disciplined, keeping alert in the game and not switching off."

Israel also entered the game on high spirits, and vice captain Tal Adani said the girls were full of energy. "We came in with a lot of energy, we fought for the this game, we wanted the win. We felt the fire the energy, the excitement, it was great."

Israel have almost an entire day to rest their aching limbs, but Adani says they are still excited about their last game tomorrow. "We'll find a new energy and strength. We'll come tomorrow new, and we'll win this game!"
