WEST BAY, Grand Cayman -- Jamaica’s Under-15 female footballers mauled Belize 5-0 at the TE McField Sports Complex and joined Costa Rica who defeated Anguilla 5-0 atop of Group C of the CONCACAF Championship underway in Grand Cayman.

Both Jamaica and Costa Rica are on three points but the young Reggae Girls are on top with a superior goal difference.

Jamaica missed at least eight chances in the first 10 minutes before Striker Chavelle Henry opened the floodgates in the 15th minute nodding home a Shanhaine Nelson left sided cross.

Monique Perrier doubled the advantage with a shot from just outside the box as Jamaica went to the break two goals up.

The outstanding Nelson then make it three nil from the penalty spot in the 40th minute before Sherice Clarke made it four nil with a fine solo effort, gliding past three players in the 45th. The towering Tarania Clarke scored a 35 metre effort for Jamaica’s fifth and final goal two minute later in the 47th minute.

Jamaica will next play Anguilla on Saturday while Costa Rica tackle Belize at the same venue.

The top two teams from each group will advance to the quarterfinals.
