Women’s domestic football returned after more than a decade with a bang last night with a big crowd turning out at the BFA field to support the first two matches of the new season.

The double-header produced plenty of goals as PHC went on a scoring spree in the first half of the opening match, netting seven goals on their way to an 8-0 win over Young Men’s Social Club who could only manage to field nine players.

However, they improved in the second half, only conceding a single goal as PHC took their foot off the pedal, making several substitutions in the match.

Taznae Fubler had the distinction of scoring the league’s opening goal after just four minutes and added a second to make it 4-0 in the 16th minute as PHC dominated the match in the two, 30 minute halves, which also allowed rolling substitutions.

Akeyla Furbert also netted twice, in the tenth and 23rd minutes as did Destiny Minors in the 14th and 26th minutes, while Azra Shakir added the seventh in the 28th minute.

PHC had to wait until the 55th minute, five minutes from the end of the second half, before scoring their eighth goal of the match as Minors completed her hat-trick.

In the second match, Footy Queens, led by the experience of captain Dominique Richardson in midfield, took a 3-0 lead in the first half against Dandy Stars on their way to a 4-1 win as the crowd was treated to more goals in the nightcap.

Donte Allen scored directly from corners in the eleventh and 29th minutes, her team’s first and third goals, while Deshae Darrell added the second in the 29th minute.

Dandy Stars pulled one back right at the half time whistle through Emoy Holdipp but Darrell restored the three goal lead for Footy Queens with her second goal and the team’s fourth tally late in the second half.
