Trinidad and Tobago’s Under 17 Women’s team completed another convincing victory at the Caribbean Football Union preliminary qualifiers with an 8-0 thumping of British Virgin Islands at the Elquemedo Willett Park in St Kitts/Nevis this morning.

The game was rescheduled from the previous evening due to the Tropical Storm watch.

Nia Honore led the way for T&T with a hattrick, scoring her goals in the 29th, 47th and 65th minutes. Kaydeen Jack notched a double in the 19th and 67th minutes while Ranae Ward (44th), Laurelle Theodore (88th) and captain Kelsey Henry (91st) grabbed a goal each to complete the onslaught.

The win left T&T atop the four-team table with six points from two games, ahead of hosts St Kitts/Nevis (3 points) which faces Dominica on Tuesday evening.

“It’s a good feeling to come out on top in the manner we did today,” head coach Rajesh Latchoo told TTFA Media. “Overall I was pleased with the effort. Our finishing was much better today than the previous game against Dominica. We will be looking to finish with a third win tomorrow and top the group in the process,” he added

T&T’s closing group phase game against St Kitts/Nevis remains on schedule for 8pm on Wednesday. The Latchoo coached-team have virtually secured their place in the CFU Final round in Puerto Rico in November. T&T are vying for qualification for the 2016 FIFA Under 17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan.
