Kingstown , St Vincent and the Grenadines — In a performance which demonstrated class and superiority, Jamaica's Under-17 Women footballers easily brushed aside their lesser fancied St Kitts and Nevis counterparts 10-0 in their Group E encounter in the CONCACAF Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Qualifiers here at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex yesterday.

Giselle Washington (fifth and 22nd minutes), Jody Brown (seventh minute), Monique Perrier (37th and 41st minutes), Rochell Gray (54th and 90+ minutes), Christina Salmon (76th and 79th) and Jaden Roberts (90th minutes) got on the score card for the victors.

It was a well-deserved victory by the Young Reggae Girlz, who after three days of travelling and without proper training, were still able to cruise home comfortably without showing any signs of distress.

With the victory Jamaica assumed pole position of the group with three points and a better goal difference ahead of St Kitts and Nevis, also on three points. The host nation is last in the three-team table without a point.

From the opening whistle it was all Jamaica as the Young Reggae Girlz took control of the game and immediately threatened the St Kitts and Nevis goal when captain Perrier muscled her way through three defenders, but her right-footed shot was denied by Craivecia Sutton.

After a few more shots by the Jamaicans, Washington then put her team in front when she easily tapped home from close range. Two minutes later, the swift Brown fired home a low right-footed shot past a diving Sutton in goal for St Kitts and Nevis.

The attack continued on St Kitts and Nevis as Washington, who got a rebound in front of an empty goal, easily tapped home to make it 3-0.

Perrier was then denied on three occasions by the standing uprights. Perrier finally ended her frustration when she fired home a rocket into the roof of St Kitts and Nevis goal with Sutton motionless. Perrier added her second and fifth for Jamaica when she tapped home wide of a struggling Sutton. The only shot St Kitts and Nevis got was in the third minute when Trishanie Warner fired from long range which was easily picked up by Chelisa Schloss in goal for Jamaica.

Nothing much changed in the second half as St Kitts and Nevis showed little improvement in the defensive unit but that could not stop the Young Reggae Girlz from breaching the wall.

In the 54th minute, Gray skilfully dismissed three St Kitts and Nevis players, which brought the small crowd to its feet, and fired past Sutton who had no choice but to stand and watch the ball roll into her goal, hanging her head as if she had no idea what had just happened.

Substitute Salmon quickly got herself in the black, green and gold party with two brilliant goals to give Jamaica a very relaxed 8-0 lead.

Another substitute, Roberts, made an instant impact on the game with some fancy foot-work which at times left her challengers puzzled at her every move on the right flank. Roberts's first attempt on goal was denied by the right upright from a brilliant effort. She was then rewarded from efforts when she powered past two defenders and shot into the St Kitts and Nevis goal.

Gray was at it again and with her brilliant footwork as she netted her second and the 10th for Jamaica in the 90+ minute.

“It was a really good game and I enjoyed myself very well. I had little work to do in goal, but I enjoyed every moment my teammates scored on the other team. It was a good 10-0 win and we hope that we continue in the same way,” Schloss told the Jamaica Observer.

Jamaica will play St Vincent and the Grenadines next on Sunday at the same venue at 4:00 pm (3:00 pm Jamaica time).

The winners from the five groups will advance to the final round of qualification, which will be played in two groups (A and B) in Haiti October 16-22.
