Ralph nets hat-trick in T&T’s 13-0 win.
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian).

Chelcy Ralph registered a hat-tricks as T&T’s senior Women Warriors clobbered host Turks & Caicos 13-0 to take charge of their 2022 CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Group F Qualifying Series at the Turks & Caicos Islands Football Association National Academy in Providence, on Saturday.

With the win, the Kenwyne Jones-coached Women Warriors moved to the top of the five-team round-robin pool with a maximum of nine points from three matches, two ahead of Guyana, who was held goalless at home by Nicaragua on Friday night ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with T&T at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, Bacolet, Tobago on Tuesday from 6 pm.

With only the pool winner advancing to the next phase of Concacaf Women’s qualifiers, T&T will go into the match against the Guyanese needing only a draw to top the group and move on to the next stage.

However, yesterday in Providence, Turks & Caicos custodian Crystal Jean-Baptiste could not conjure such heroics as Ralph of Ball State University in the USA helped herself to a treble in the sixth, 17th and 82nd minutes, while Matouk of Police FC got a double in a second-half blitz with goals in the 49th and 66th minutes before making way for Corban University’s Maria-Frances Serran to get on the scoresheet in the 74th minute.

Team captain Karyn Forbes opened the scoring in the 33rd and 45th, and Raenah Campbell also added a pair (72nd and 86th) while Lauryn Hutchinson, Shadi Cecily Stoute (University of Georgia), Liana Hinds (Hibernian Women), and Serrant got one each to complete the lopsided win.

With an eye on the clash with Guyana, Jones also had the luxury of resting regular starters, goalkeeper Kimika Forbes, defenders Rhea Belgrave, and Victoria Swift, and attacking duo Amaya Ellis, and Asha James, both based in the USA, but all of whom will no doubt return to Tuesday’s starting squad.
