Bermuda left it late to sink resilient Greenland last night and win football gold in the NatWest Island Games at the National Sports Centre.

The hosts were indebted to an 88th-minute penalty from Drewonde Bascome after the referee had blown up for a shove in the back on Domico Coddington.

Before then, both teams lacked a cutting edge, although substitute Rai Simons should have won the game for Bermuda with 15 minutes remaining when he rounded the keeper but hit the post from a tight angle.

The win gave Bermuda a double over Greenland — with the women also edging a fiercely contested final encounter.

After the game finished 0-0 after extra time, the home crowd were treated to a superb penalty shootout display from keeper Stacy Babb, who pulled off two crucial saves to seal a 5-4 win.
