Sunset's late eclipse

Sunset women’s football team squeezed through their President’s Cup semifinal against Alliance with a dramatic winner in the dying seconds of the second leg match.

The game at the TE McField Annex on Saturday was finely balanced after the first leg, which Alliance won 3-2.

Fiona McLeod scored for Sunset in the 41st minute, and with the tie at 3-3 on aggregate, overtime was necessary.

With no more goals as the final whistle beckoned, it looked as if a penalty shoot-out was imminent – until Elena Testori struck in the 120th minute to take Sunset through.

Sunset made a clean sweep of trophies last term, winning the league, FA Cup and President’s Cup, and they hope to do the same this time.

Shenel Gall scored a hat-trick for Elite in the other semifinal at the Ed Bush stadium in West Bay but still finished on the losing side against Scholars International, who won 4-3.

Martika Williams got a brace for Scholars; the other scorers were Kimberly Salgado and Tatiana Ramoon.

The women’s President’s Cup final is at the TE McField Annex on Feb. 18.

The men’s President’s Cup semifinals are played this Sunday at the Annex.

Sunset tackle Roma United at 5 p.m., and Bodden Town meet Cayman Athletic in 
the 7 p.m. kickoff.
