“This is the first time playing in a tournament like this… The players and the coaches did not know what to expect, so we had to adjust in many ways to lots of things and get rid of the nerves”, Weekes admitted.

She reiterated that they have little information on the other teams, hence, they will learn along the way.

On the other hand, Grenada’s Assistant Coach- Barbara Bernard, reflecting on the match, thought they lost points at critical junctures.
