Cayman Islands v Republic of Ireland


Cayman Islands took their first win of the competition, beating the Republic Of Ireland 62-26.

The Caribbean side won the first quarter 14 goals to 7, with some excellent shooting from Aaliyah Webb, and GA Rosemarie Wilson looked confident and determined as she intercepted the ball and helped Webb to score. 

Cayman tripled Ireland's tally in the second quarter stopping Ireland from getting the ball to their attacking circle. 

The half time whistle blew and Cayman had extended their lead to 18 goals, and they went on to stretch further in front in the second half of the game.

However the Republic of Ireland are a team growing in confidence day by day, and despite recording another loss, they have considerably improved in the space of only five matches.

"They definitely have fighting spirit which is great. Every day they get stronger, they get more confident" said Coach Rhian Humphreys.

Cayman Coach Gillian Lee was happy her side were finally able to dictate a game to their liking.

"It was well deserved by they girls. They've worked hard all week. Despite the scores not showing it they've had a tough gig against Jamaica and Wales, so I was really pleased that they could then start putting their game together at their standard."
