Trinidad, Mexico open with wins
TRINIDAD & Tobago were off to a great start making the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) proud when they outplayed Honduras 2-0 on Friday evening in Group B of the CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship played at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex, in George Town, Grand Cayman.
The Soca Girls had their eyes set on the three points from the first sound of the whistle, making their presence felt by going forward towards the Honduran goal.
The Hondurans would have none of it and tried desperately to prevent the Trinidadians from penetrating their area. However, after several attempts by both teams to get on the score sheet, it was Trinidad & Tobago's Brianna Ryce who separated the teams in the 39th minute with a direct kick ending the first half 1-0.
Four minutes into the second half, Trinidad & Tobago's captain Anique Walker sealed the issue with her goal to end the game 2-0 in favour of her team.
In the other game played later in the evening the young Caymanian team were no match for the football powerhouse team Mexico as they lost 0-6.
Games were scheduled for yesterday at the same venue when Costa Rica were to meet Guatemala at 5:00 pm and Jamaica playing the United States at 7:30 pm.
The three top teams in this championship will qualify for the FIFA Women's Under-20 World Cup finals set to be played in Canada later this year.
