Today is the Elvis “Star” Browne Women’s League finals between first time finalists MFCR Old Road United Lady Jets versus multiple time champions Honda Newtown United. Both teams had an excellent season. Newtown started slowly, but quickly picked up and dominated the league in its usual fashion. They would want to right the wrongs of 2020, the last time the Women’s League was held, when they were defeated in the finals in extra time by a single goal from Rams Village Superstars, which ended their stranglehold on the title. Their Coach Shashi Isaac believes they have what it takes to win the league.
Old Road Lady Jets is a revelation this season. They mixed their youthful talent with a combination of players from other women’s teams including Garden Hotspurs and Newtown. Now, becoming a force to reckon with in women’s football, Old Road Lady Jets are looking to make a statement Sunday evening at Warner Park against Newtown. In fact, Coach Roger Hendricks wants revenge for lopsided results to Newtown in their regular season encounter.
It’s women’s football at its finest: the 2023 Elvis Star Browne Women’s League finals today at 6pm at the Warner Park. Admission $10. The match will also be streamed live on the SKNFA Facebook page and YouTube channel.
