Island lose in Jersey


The Isle of Man women's national team were left to rue a number of missed opportunties in both of their fixtures at the inaugural UK Offshore tournament over the weekend

They lost 2-1 to the Isle of Wight in their opening match despite taking the lead through Donna Shimmin.

Their English opponents equalised before the interval and scored the winner in the second half.

Yesterday, the Island lost 3-2 to Jersey at the Springfield stadium.

The Channel Islanders went in 2-0 up at half time and found the net again in the second half.

As the match drew to a close, Siobhan Lockwood scored on her Island debut to make it 3-1 and Jade Burden netted a second but they couldn't find an equaliser to force penalties.

Hosts Jersey won the competition following a 9-8 shoot-out victory against the Isle of Wight.
