Bajan women whip Peru 5-0
BARBADOS’ SENIOR WOMEN’S TEAM went on a goal-spree, blanking Peru 5-0 in their second match of the Aquece Rio International Hockey Championship at the Deodoro Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, yesterday.
Fresh from their exhilarating last-second 2-1 win over hosts Brazil in the opening game on Tuesday, Barbados seemed intent from the touch-off to show their regional peers that their best is yet to come as a growing contender in women’s hockey in the Pan American region.
The Bajan girls dominated the majority of the match, starting with more intensity than against Brazil and were rewarded with a convincing victory as Patrina “Pixie” Brathwaite, Keisha Boyce, with a brace, teenager Jada Prescod and veteran Tricia-Ann Greaves all got on the scoresheet. (PR/EZS)
