In the Cayman Islands Women’s league Scholars and Cayman Islands National Team playmaker Jetena Bodden helped spearhead a standout defensive performance this Saturday as Scholars International became the first team this season to take points from Elite Sports Club.

The game started off scrappy as Scholars doggedly broke down any patterns of attacking play that Elite tried to put together, neither side were committing great numbers in attack and neither side wanted to be the first team to make a mistake.

On the balance of play a draw was a fair result, Scholars are now unbeaten in two games and have picked up 4 points out a possible 6 against Future and Elite moving up into third position in the league.

In contrast to this fixture the early match up saw Sunset F.C. hammer George Town SC 6:0. Sunset is known for their possession football and they used the ball well against George Town to create plenty of opportunities in front of goal.

Gisela Gamba stabbed home the first for Sunset, a Mya Romilowych cross found its way through a crowd of legs and Gamba tapped home to put her side up 1:0 in the 10th minute. Twelve minutes later a mirror image of the first created the second for Sunset, this time Gamba spun in the box after receiving the cross and fired the ball top right to put Sunset 2:0 up.

The goal of game came in the 27th minute, Charlotte Horne’s 35-yard free-kick stunned George Town keeper Marline Willians.

Early in the second half Gisela Gamba completed her hat-trick, Mya Romilowych again the provider as she crossed low for Gamba who was in the right place yet again to put her team 4:0 up. Sarah Pinches got in on the act in the 56th minute to make it 5:0 before substitute Diana Willington came on to score in the 76th minute.
