Wave FC continued their good run of form when they became the first team to defeat Boom Champions Fuego in the Women's Premier League (WPL) Sunday.
The league was postponed once more on Friday after a two-week hiatus as a result of the national senior women's team's involvement in the Pan American Games, due to the prison break in Port of Spain, and the subsequent shootings.
The double-header featuring Fuego vs Oilers and Dragons vs Wave were postponed as a result.
However, the delay didn't put Wave off, as they dealt league-leading Boom Champions Fuego a blow to surge up the league table with back-to-back wins.
New WPL top scorer Camila Germano, scored a close range header in the first half while Joseann "Lulu" Azevedo dispatched a controversially-awarded penalty in the 77th minute. Jamaican Christina Murray scored for Fuego with a few minutes left to make for a tense finale but in the end, Wave FC held on to the 2-1 victory.
In the second clash of the double-header, Chancellor Angels stormed to a 2-0 lead within the first seven minutes against Petrotrin Oilers through Jody Sokol and Sherain Cummings.
Petrotrin Oilers, who were captained by Victoria Swift in the absence of Karyn Forbes, marshalled her troops well after the resumption. Shenelle Arjoon was especially inspirational and was the catalyst for the Oilers’ goal.
Kayla Taylor, who joins Germano as leading WPL goal scorer with three goals, was unerring from the spot after the referee awarded a penalty. Unfortunately it wasn't enough for the Oilers as the Chancellor Angels held their nerve to preserve their 2-1 advantage.
The action continues today in this WPL with a double-header at the Eddie Hart grounds from 5.30 pm.
