#THE Bahamas Football Association celebrated International Women’s Day this past weekend with the social media release and launch of the new Bahamas Women’s Football League logo.
#The 17 parts of the body of the women’s logo depicts the 17 beautiful, major islands of the Bahamas.
#The Bahamas Football Association also hosted a mini-festival on Saturday afternoon after hosting the Under-15 Girls League games.
#In those games, match one saw the Dynamos Girls U-15 Squad dispatch the Cavalier U-15 Girls by a score of 4-0. Dynamos got a brace (2) from K’lyn Cherfils and goals from Anaya Riley and Aria Saunders to lead the way.
#In match two, Baha Jr U-15 Girls and Western Warriors U-15 Girls played to a 2-2 draw on the day. Yazmin Kennedy scored a brace for Baha Jr while Raynia Russell and Keyara Jenning scored for the Warriors.
#Later in the evening, the women’s day celebrations continued with the first women’s football league match of the day.
#The match saw the Dynamos Football Club’s Ashya Butler drop a hat trick and one and an insurance goal from Alexis Williamson on the Orange crush squad of the United Football Club.
#Butler missed another three clear goals on the day as she said she was shaking off the rust. A prolific scorer in college at Northeastern Oklahoma, Butler will be tough to handle as she gets going. United got two goals on the night, one form Hadassah Knowles and Samina Moss.
#In match two, Baha Jr women’s team battled the Cavalier FC women’s team to a 3-1 victory. Sydney Hector scored a brace and Lily Comarcho added an insurance goal to seal the win. Janeka Edey provided the lone goal in a losing effort.
#Bahamas Men’s Soccer League
#Match 1: Western Warriors defeat Dynamos FC 3-1
#The road to the top of the Men’s Division got a bit tougher for coach Dion Peterson and the Dynamos club.
#Despite the score being tied 1-1 at the half, team fitness and depth caused problems for Peterson and the Warriors took the match in hand at the 74’.
#Brandon Adderley scored for the Dynamos while Warriors got scoring from Romel Agustin, Roose Esterdjy and an own goal from Dynamos FC Avery Kemp.
#It does not get any better as the two teams meet again this week in a makeup match. That should be a barnburner.
#Match Two: IM Bears roll over Cavalier FC 9-0
#In the heyday of Bahamian football, this match up would have been an exciting barnburner of a match with the likes of Nesley Jean taking on Kevin Davies and Lionel Haven.
#These days, the Cavaliers are hardly that team and a proud IM Bears team led by Lesly St Fleur took the Cavalier squad to the woodshed. In the end, Djodson Francois scored a hat trick and John P. Jean added another brace to help the rout.
#Match 3: Future Stars defeated Renegades FC 6-3
#All season long we have wondered why the youthful Future Stars team were struggling as they were one of the talented teams in the league. Sunday night they got their act together and played team football to defeat veteran squad Renegades FC.
#Shanton St Germain scored two, leading scorer Mikendy Paul added one and Terico Etienne another to help fuel the win.
#Coach Carlton Adderley might have found the message to get these guys playing for each other. Jacob Charles scored a hat trick in a losing effort.
