U-17 princesses humble USVI 13-0
T&T’s women’s Under-17 national team finished off its Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifying round in style with a 13-0 hammering of hosts US Virgin Islands on Sunday.
Jahra Thomas led the way with four goals in the 25th, 33rd, 67th and 74th minutes. T&T went ahead in the second minute when Tamara Johnson hit a shot from 25 yards out over the goalkeeper.
Seven minutes later T&T doubled its lead through a deflected goal, and then Chelcy Ralph made it 3-0 soon after. Thomas got a pair before half time to leave T&T sitting comfortable ahead.
Kahline Jacob also got in on the scoring with goals on the half hour mark and four minutes before half time to leave T&T 7-0 ahead at the break.
Chevonne John would notch her third goal of the tournament in 52nd, minutes before Dennecia Prince struck a bullet in the 57th. Zoe Swift would close off the goal hunt in the 85th and 86th minutes.
T&T, which defeated St Kitts and Nevis (7-0) and Antigua/Barbuda 4-1 in the earlier matches, is now through to the CFU final round of qualifiers which is scheduled for September 11-18 at a venue to be confirmed before the final Concacaf round ahead of the 2014 Fifa Under-17 World Cup in Costa Rica.
“We’ve done well in this phase and it was pleasing to see the girls dominate the opposition,” said head coach Marlon Charles.
“We’ve got work to do but this was a good start and the players realise that once they put their minds to it, they can take charge.
“We expect the next stage to be tougher but not beyond us. We are definitely looking to continue this run of form right into the Concacaf round.”
