Trinidad and Tobago Senior Women defeated Antigua/Barbuda 5-0 in their second outing at the CONCACAF Caribbean Women’s Final Round at the National Stadium in Kingston today.
T&T got an opening item from Janine Francois in the 4th minute while Kayla Taylor followed up with her hattrick on Saturday, by bagging a pair of goals in the 16th and 39th minutes. Captain Tasha St Louis put her name on the scoresheet from the penalty spot in the 30th and Norway-based forward Kennya Cordner finished things off in the 65th minute with a simple tap in from close range.
“It was a victory which we wanted to complete as it puts us two in two going into Friday’s match against the hosts,” caretaker coach Anton Corneal told TTFA Media. “Now with these two wins to our name we can breathe slightly easier because it means we are maybe one result away from securing qualification but there is a still a lot to be done to get where we want to as a team. Credit to the players for pulling off the win and now we’re looking forward to the test against Jamaica and I expect this to be a competitive fixture.”
Skipper St Louis added, “I’m happy for the two results so far. We came here knowing that we needed to start well in the competition. We are taking each game as it comes. Friday’s game is a massive one for us and very important for us as a team to see where we’re at right now. We need to win this one and we’re ready and waiting on the hosts.”
