The 2021 National Amateur Women’s League (NAWL) Football tournament has begun its opening season. On Saturday, November 20th, the San Pedro Pirates female team claimed their first victory after defeating Cayo Dreamers 4-0.
The match took place at the Ambergris Stadium, and it was the second game for the island girls. The win was monumental after the crushing 6-0 defeat they faced against Verdes team after their first game on November 6th.
The match started at 3PM, and the San Pedro Pirates went in with a different game plan with the sole aim to win. The island squad controlled the game from the beginning, with their first goal scored by Elva Nuñez. Cayo Dreamers tried to recoup, but Pirate’s Tamara Baptist widened the gap after scoring the island team’s second goal. Minutes before the end of the first half, the island girls net their third goal, by Dulce Leiva.
During the second half, Cayo Dreamers played more defensive. The San Pedro Pirates tried to reach their opponent’s goal but found it challenging. The pressure continued from the home team resulting in a fourth goal scored by Nuñez. This was her second goal in the match, which sealed the game 4-0.
The tournament also saw other games across the country. Rumberas crushed Hyper Jewels 7-1, while Juventus Sugar Girls took a 9-0 defeat after facing Rebel Girls. Kulcha United was defeated by Jewel Fury 6-1, and the last match saw Sagitun Girlz claiming a solid 5-0 over Hyper Phoenix.
