Island Games Football Matchday 3 – Women concede 8, men fall at hands of hosts

In a disappointing matchday 3, both Gibraltar’s men and womens teams lost their respective matches, and will settle for placing matches

The men went up against hosts Isle of Wight, knowing a draw would see them through. However, they were 3-0 down after 50 minutes, and despite a late rally with goals from Liam Walker (his 4th of the tournament) and Joseph Chipolina, they lost 3-2, and will have to settle for a 5th and 6th place playoff vs Saaremaa.

The women took a heavy defeat at the hands of Greenland. They were 3-0 down at half time, and by the end of the 90 lost 8-0. They will battle for the ‘wooden spoon’ against Hitra.

Both matches are tomorrow (7pm women, 8pm men)
