“It was an excellent start to the revitalization of Women's Football in the BVI.  Coaches Anna French and Wayne Phillip are to be congratulated on the high level of technical ability displayed by all of the women.”

Keenly contested affairs

In the first match, Purple Rain defeated fire 1-0 in a penalty shootout, with Mohamed the lone scorer, whilst in the next game Pure Trouble defeated Pink Panthers 3-2, also, in a penalty shootout after the match ended in a 1-1 tie.

Vanterpool scored for Pure Trouble and French equalised for the Pink Panthers in regulation time before Vanterpool, Van-Zoost, and Morgan Creque all converted their penalties to give Pure Trouble the win. 

Purple Rain got their second win by defeating Pink Panthers 2-0 with  Jacintha Weeks and Darci Reich on the scoresheet.

Pure Trouble then defeated Fire 1-0 with Vanterpool scoring again.

In the penultimate game, Pure Trouble kept their undefeated record intact when Kiara Woodley scored a late equalizer against Purple Rain, who had gone ahead through Kara Lewis. However, the momentum turned in the favour of Pure Trouble and they went on to capture the win in the ensuing penalty shootout 2-1. 

The last match of the day saw Fire and Pink Panthers play to a 1-1 draw with goals from Murcella Gordon and French.
