The Barbados Football Association’s Under-20 National Women’s team will be looking to show their girth on when they go head to head with their Grenadian counterparts in a return friendly game.
Earlier this evening they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against the visitors when Sheranda Charles recorded a late second-half kick to enjoy the spoils of the friendly game at the Wildey Turf.
Hot and heavy, the local girls got off to a biting start when Felicia Jarvis delivered an impressive kick on the 13-minute mark to put the team up.
And while the Grenadians turned up the pressure despite push back from Mario Harte’s cohort of girls, they ended the first-half unscathed.
It was evident when the visiting side’s Shidiamond Lewis failed to make use of a great opportunity to place the equalizer into the back of the nets.
Much to Barbados’ disadvantage, however, the opposing captain in Judy McIntosh and teammate Keldonna Jefferey were too much for the goal-toting Bajan Lady Tridents to handle.
As the pressure from the Spice Girls intensified, their attempts increased, but Javelle Alexander, Shonika Flemming and Charles failed to equalize as the local girls regrouped and readied themselves from all angles.
But as the energy of the game began to wind down, Charles once again gave it her all and this time she was successful in levelling the playing field.
