The game kicked off at 5:01pm with Barbados winning the toss. The Barbados team was visibly nervous and took a while to settle.
The Guyana team took full advantage of this and opened the scoring from a free kick in the 11th minute. This goal seemed to shake the girls somewhat. Five minutes later Caitlin Padmore ran on to a through ball from Asha Stevenson and equalized for Barbados.
