Great first half performance

The Isle of Man Women's team made a perfect start to the Triangular Tournament at The Bowl on Friday night.

They beat Wigan Athletic 4-3 with goals from Ceri Purvis, Jade Burden, Kym Hicklin and Sarah Wignall.

The Manx were 4-0 up after 34 minutes but Grace Vella pulled a goal back for the visitors just before the interval.

Wigan didn't score again until the closing stages with Sam Baldwin and Alli Coleman netting - but the hosts held on to take victory.
