‘Lady Jags’, Grenada play to goalless draw
Guyana’s senior national women’s football team, the ‘Lady Jags’, played to a goalless draw against Grenada on Wednesday afternoon at the Ato Boldon Stadium as they began their campaign in the CFU Women’s Challenge Series.
According to reports out of the twin-island republic, the Guyanese had a fair number of chances, having connected to the crossbar on several occasions.
In his first match in charge of the team, Head Coach Dr. Ivan Joseph, was upbeat about the outcome.
“I thought it was a good day today. When I went into the change room I could see that we had a young team; there were nine players in there making their first ever international appearance and I needed to remind them that this was a special moment, but they had to enjoy it. Moments like aren’t suppose to cause stress, they’re suppose to build lifetime memories,” Dr. Joseph said.
The Head Coach labelled the ‘Lady Jags’ as “easily the most dangerous offensive team”, hitting the crossbar on at least four occasions.
“We were in and we were able to break down their back line several times, but we just didn’t quite have the composure to finish those chances. When you keep a game like that and don’t put away your chances usually they come back to bite you in the bud; luckily they didn’t,” Dr. Joseph added.
The ‘Lady Jags’ will play Suriname on Friday at 16:00h and host Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday at 17:30h. All matches are being played at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
