Bahamas win in up-and-down thriller - Mar 28, 2015 - 9:08:22 PM

S-MQA0304.jpg
The 10-4 win for the Bahamas over Barbados looked to be a runaway, a tight match, a runaway the other direction, a close game, and then it turned out to be a comfortable win for the Rake and Scrape Boys. The Bahamas netted the first two goals before giving up the lead, only to earn it back, before pulling away in the second and third periods. Both sides showed extreme resiliency and will be tough-outs in their upcoming matches.

The win gives the Bahamas the first points in the event and they will hold onto those going into their next match on Monday against Antigua and Barbuda. Barbados will be disappointed in how they finished but they were strong to begin the match and could have very well held onto the lead and they will build on the going forward against the USA on Monday.
