Wave, Dragons grab first WPL points; Kayla leads Wired868’s All-Stars

Wave FC and SGC Dragons finally picked up their first points of the 2015 Women’s Premier League (WPL) season in topsy turvy affairs at Ojoe Road in Sangre Grande last night.

Petrotrin Oilers was unbeaten after the opening two rounds but they fell 2-0 yesterday to the bottom of the table Dragons.

Trinidad and Tobago attacker Dernelle Mascall put Dragons ahead after 20 minutes following a goalmouth scramble and British striker Isabella Hayes doubled their lead in the 40th minute.

Oilers striker Kayla Taylor cannoned one effort off the bar but could not rouse her team to provide an appropriate response.

In the second outing, the WPL’s lowest scoring team, Wave, met the WPL’s stingiest defence, Rush. Naturally, Wave scored five times!

“Women Soca Warriors” star Kennya “Yaya” Cordner opened her account from the penalty spot in the 44th while Brazilian Camilla Germano and Jamaican Shakira Duncan scored two goals apiece as Wave led 5-1 at one point.

Another Warrior attacker, Mariah Shade, and Venezuelan Chrisbelis Abraham chipped a goal each to make the scoreline more palatable. And, added to a gifted own goal, Wave were 5-3 victors at the final whistle.

The WPL now goes into a three week break to facilitate an exodus of players for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games.

Taylor will not travel to Toronto but she was Wired868’s pick as the WPL’s best performer in the second round.

  1. Ok just pointing it out not saying all bad if have 39 out of 70 plus must have good players but why that amount if they aint quality? On a better note the league has been a good addition to the sporting landscape just not the grand WOMEN PROLEAGUE OF THE AMERICAS it was politically touted to be !!

  2. Lol. There were some foreigners on both all star lists so far. Look close.
    Pri did very well for Rush in Palo Seco. And Angels defender Pouclyn got selected in every team.
    But so far the standout for each round has been Trini.

  3. Lasana Liburd aint seeing the forgein players on your all star teams boi like i was right after all 4th rate players taking money in US but guess ppl eating so no one talking!!!

  4. Yasssssssss sass Kayla Taylor….so proud of you!

  5. …Pro League clubs getting massive State funds. WPL “clubs” getting State funds. Now, how about some funding for the Super League clubs, which clubs maintain the genuine community roots and spirit in local football?…

  6. They will be staying at Chancellor Hotel. We still haven’t gotten the figures we need on that. But we will get it eventually.

  7. 3 week break? the foreigners paying for themselves to go back home for the break? Or I helping pay for that? Or I helping pay for them to stay here?
