CANADIAN female football team, Dollards Dragons who are on the island on a two-week tour, went down 2-1 to a St Thomas Invitational Team at Paul Bogle High on Sunday.

The Dragons will now face a local masters team in their second game this afternoon at Buttercup Park, which wil be the curtain-raiser for the annual New Year's Football Extravaganza at 2:00 pm.

On Sunday, Kerry-Ann Sterling netted both goals for the invitational team, while national team player Tashawna Vincent — a guest player for Dollards — scored for the visitors.

Sunday's game was held in honour of former national player, the late Marvalyn Brown, and included Andrea Lewis, Nicole 'Schillachi' Berwise, Valerie Murphy, Paulette Riley, and Kayon Davis.

Brown will also be recognised at today's event at Buttercup Park.

The Dragons' last game on January 6 against a St James Invitational at Catherine Hall will be in honour of another late female footballer from the parish, Bernadette 'Lorraine' Mairs.

The Canadian club made their first trip to the island last year. They made donations to the Princess Margaret Hospital, Morant Bay High and Primary schools, Seaforth and Paul Bogle High, and Yallahs Primary.

They also helped to form the St Thomas Strikers football outfit which competed in the Sherwin William's Women's Premier League this season.
