JAMAICA were held to a 0-0 draw by Guyana in their women's match at the 2017 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games Qualifiers hockey tournament at the Jamaica National Hockey Field at Mona yesterday.

Despite the draw, Jamaica remain on course for a place in the final as they lead the points standings on goal difference ahead of Bermuda.

The Jamaicans have seven points from three matches and have scored nine goals without conceding. Bermuda, too, are on seven points from three matches, but have scored eight goals and none against, while Puerto Rico follow with five points.

Jamaica dominated the first two quarters of the match as Guyana were pushed on the defensive, but chances from field goals and penalty corners were squandered from hurried efforts.

In other women's matches yesterday, Bermuda defeated Panama 4-0, while Puerto Rico blanked Guatemala by an identical scoreline.

In women's action today, Guatemala take on Panama at 8:30 am, Bermuda tackle Guyana at 10:30 am and Puerto Rico go up against Jamaica at 12:30 pm.

On the men's side, Panama and Guyana will do battle at 2:30 pm, while hosts Jamaica cross swords with Guyana at 4:30 pm.
