Island Games Football Matchday 2 round up – Another big win for Mens, women get day off

With only the men competing today, 9 goals were witnessed in the Gibraltar – Ynys Môn game. Once again, Gibraltar got 6 of them, as they beat their counterparts from just off the North-West of Wales 6-3 in a decent encounter. Lee Casciaro, Liam Walker and Aaron Payas were amongst the scorers for Gibraltar.

In the other game in Group B, hosts the Isle of Wight saw off Alderney 4-0 to set up a group decider against Gib tomorrow evening. With an equal goal difference of 8, but a better goals scored record (12 to IoW’s 8), Gib should only need to draw to advance to the semi finals at the hosts expense.

The womens team had a day off today, as Isle of Man saw off Greenland 3-1 to win Group B. Gib play Greenland tomorrow evening to determine who goes in what placing playoff. Should Gib lose, they’ll likely face Hitra in the ‘wooden spoon’ (9th and 10th place) match.
