Big win for Young Football Ferns

6:31 am on 13 April 2010

The Young Football Ferns have started the Oceania Under 17 Women's Championships with a record 10-0 win over the Solomon Islands at North Harbour Stadium.

The largest-ever New Zealand win at Under-17 women's level sees the Young Football Ferns comfortably atop the standings and in pole position to qualify for September's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.

New Zealand now takes on Papua New Guinea, who ran out 4-0 winners against Tonga in the opening game , and can all-but confirm their place in the Caribbean with another win tomorrow.
