GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC) – Jamaica set up a top-of-the-table clash with Costa Rica on Monday, after they crushed Anguilla 9-0 to post their second straight win in the CONCACAF Girls Under-15 Championship on Saturday.

The young Reggae Girls were propelled by a four-goal outing from Jody Brown as they pumped in seven goals in the first half at the T.E McField Sports Complex, to put the result far beyond doubt from very early.

Jamaica, who trounced Belize 5-0 in their opening game on Thursday, now sit on top Group C with six points alongside the Costa Ricans who are also unbeaten in their two outings.

Following a 5-0 thrashing of Anguilla also on Thursday, the Costa Ricans routed Belize 7-0, to maintain their goal-scoring penchant.

Jamaica and Costa Rica meet Monday in their final preliminary game to decide the group winners.

However, it was Brown and the Jamaicans who took centre stage. The 12-year-old opened her account in the 12th minute to follow up Chavelle Henry’s 11th minute strike that gave Jamaica the early lead, and then followed up with goals in the 17th and 19th minutes.

Gabrielle Gayle added a fifth in the 27th minute before Brown tucked in her fourth three minutes later, as Anguilla continued to flounder.

Shanhaine Nelson’s 42nd strike gave Jamaica a 7-0 lead at the half-time whistle and Jamila Ashley (61st) and Sydoney Clarke (70th) got on the score sheet after the break, to complete the blowout.

In Group D action, Haiti edged Puerto Rico 1-0 while Canada easily stroked past Cuba 6-0.
