The girls got off to a sombre start, but soon got into their rhythm in an end-to-end game.
Four goals were scored in total with the Pumas being the eventual winners.
Goalscorers included Tasha Gibbings, Jasmine Peel and Sami Bennett.
It was a very emotional time for all concerned and praise must go to everyone for the spirit in which the match was played.
