Tired legs blamed for U20 women’s defeat in US

| 19/12/2013

(CIFA): A fatigued Cayman Islands National Under 20 Girls team battled bravely in their second warm up match of their overseas training camp but lost to West Pines Football Club 3 nil. Despite suffering through twice daily training sessions administered by Head Coach Joe Supe and his staff, the Cayman ladies held off the home team for the entire regular period. West Pines Football Club broke the deadlock moments before the referee’s final whistle with Samantha Toribio (90th), Nicole Richards (90+2) and Jessica Roman (90+5).

Despite the result, Assistant Coach Marcos Tinico told CaymanFootball.com, “Our team played very well considering the strength of the opponent, we understand that the team was tired at the end and they’ve been training twice a day resulting in three goals after the regular time.”

Coach Supe is encouraged by the team’s start to the tour in Fort Lauderdale, after drawing the first warm up on Sunday and despite defeat the team’s defense was solid.
Cayman departs for Costa Rica on Wednesday for three practice matches.
