Bermuda Win Second Jean Pierre Match in Antigua

After a long day at the courts were Bermuda started the day with the Shooting Competition as the 2019 Jean Pierre Under 16 Tournament in Antigua & Barbuda continued, the Bermuda team then had to hang around as they would face off in the last day of the match vs. the host country.

Bermuda went into their 5th match of the tournament against the host country Antigua and Barbuda, knowing they would bring high energy in hope of winning their first match, however, Bermuda had other plans.

Bermuda Starting Line-up: GS - A'Maiah Butterfield, GA - Selah Tuzo, WA - Jade Johnston, C - Alexcie Burrows, WD - K'Xiyae Gibbons, GD - Asrael Basden, GK - Elishae Smith

Antigua and Barbuda had a point to prove, and started the match with an extremely physical style of play. This being Bermuda's most physical match of the tournament thus far, seemed to stifle them along with having to change their starting shooter Butterfield after the Antigua and Barbuda goal keeper landed harshly on top of her, with the First Quarter ending 4 - 2 in favor of Bermuda.

The teams continued to battle through the Second Quarter in what appeared to be a see saw event with the teams going to the break with Bermuda leading 8 - 6.

Bermuda would make some tactical changes bringing in Coriah Simmons at center and changing the starting center Burrows to the WA position to try to inject some speed into the midcourt. With the change seeming to make a difference ending the Third Quarter more level with Bermuda leading 12 - 11.

After a firm talking to Bermuda finally shifted gears and played their game. Bermuda would make interception after interception taking total control of the match and only allowing Antigua & Barbuda to score 2 points finishing the match 25 - 13 were Bermuda would register their second victor of the tournament.

Bermuda would get 18 goals from Asrael Basden, 4 from Selah Tuzo and 3 goals from A'Maiah Butterfield.
