COUVA,Trinidad and Tobago — Jamaica's Under-20 Reggae Girlz ended the CONCACAF Women's Championship campaign with some consolation despite squandering the lead twice in a 2-2 scoreline against Nicaragua in Group B contest of academic interest at the Ato Boldon Stadium here yesterday.

The Jamaicans, with goals from Olufolasade Adamolekun in the sixth and substitute Jazmin Grant in the 63rd, went in front twice after a controlled effort, but

Jaclyn Gilday (22nd) and Yessenia Flores (82nd) ensured the Central Americans a share of the spoils.

Both teams ended with a point each with the Jamaicans, by virtue of an inferior goal difference, finishing at the foot of the four teams standing.

The Americans finished atop the group with maximum nine points following a 2-1 victory in the curtain raiser of the doubleheader. They will meet Haiti in the semi-final while second-placed Mexico with six points will square off against Group A winners Canada.


Nicaragua........2 Gilday (22nd), Flores (82nd)
Jamaica......2 Adamolekun (6th), Grant (63rd)
