Wahoos top pool

After Rounds 3 and 4 of the Cayman Touch Association Women’s League, the Wahoos remain undefeated with a draw and a win to add to their two victories already this season.

The other significant improvement came from Lionfish who got their first points going through the day undefeated.

Wahoos came up against a feisty Lionfish team looking to avenge two opening round defeats. Wahoos struggled for field position in the early exchanges, often dropping the ball through the early touches and Lionfish took advantage and were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to tries from speedster Nicky Keogh and Emma Santiago.

Wahoos eventually found their rhythm and Alison Strobridge was a standout performer. Sharlee Henshaw pulled one back and then scored another to end the game 2-2.

Stingrays took on Sharks and in spite of a fine try by Stingrays debutante Ruth Kelleher and an extremely fired-up Jo Remillard, Michelle Bailey (2) and Alice Aherne sealed the 3-2 win for Sharks.

Tanya Potiyenko’s touch skills for the Sharks were mesmerizing and the highlight was a scintillating run virtually the length of the pitch only to be run down by the blazing Remillard.

If they had been stung by the Lionfish in Round 3, Wahoos went into overdrive against Sharks, winning 4-2. Strobridge capped off a fine day for Wahoos with a score, as did Mischa Kluyver, Henshaw and Dana Lowe.

Scores by Michelle Bailey and Wiki Hitchman kept Sharks in the game through some superb passing by Emma McNamee but the standout performance was the improvement by Laura McGeever. Understandably nervous in her first ever touch game in the opening match, she got it together in the second game.

Lionfish capped off a great day with a 3-2 victory over Stingrays, a reversal of the score in Round 1.

Remillard added a fine double to her Stingrays tally and good performances from a resurgent Anne Dolan, Jo Verbiesen in defense and attack, Laura-Jane Airey and Leena Banenji who is rapidly making a reputation as one to watch for the future.

So Wahoos maintain their place at the top of the Women’s Touch league but Lionfish are dangerous and can rise up the table.
