Trinidad tops Honduras in CWU20 Group B opener.
Typography

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – Trinidad & Tobago won its opening match at the CONCACAF Women’s Championship for the first time in six tries, defeating Honduras 2-0 on Friday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

Anique Walker and Brianna Ryce each netted a goal to give the Soca Princesses the first three points on offer in Group B.  Mexico and tournament host Cayman Islands will meet later in the evening.

Honduras, playing in its first-ever CONCACAF Under-20 finals, started brightly and remained active throughout the evening.

In the 19th minute, Lauren Hall dribbled into the right side of the Trinidadian box and unleashed a shot that goalkeeper Tanesha Palmer did well to palm over the crossbar.

Two minutes later, Trinidad went on attack as the influential Patrice Campbell burst into the left side of the Honduran box, ripping an attempt that goalkeeper Kelin Palma couldn’t catch. Maribiz Guevara, however, was able to clear the ball from danger.

At the half-hour mark, Honduras was presented with a free-kick positioned at the upper-right corner of the penalty area.  Hall’s ensuing effort did not miss by much as it whistled past the near post.

Ryce then showed some silky skills, dribbling on the left-side and snaking a cross that traveled in front of the Honduran goal before it was kicked out of bounds at the far post.

Trinidad, though, would not pass up on the next opportunity that presented itself in the 39th minute.  Campbell delivered a corner kick that Walker flew through the air to meet.  The charged ball hit off Palma’s hands, rebounded off the crossbar and landed just over the goal line.

Two minutes after the interval, Campbell was in the thick of the action once again.  The 19-year-old lofted a delightful feed on the right side of the box to Donika Murray, who cut back inside and cracked a left-footed shot that Palma saved.  The ball bounced around with Ryce and Campbell looking to follow up, but the Hondurans kept it out of the net.

Ryce made it 2-0 in the 49th minute, sending a wonderful glancing header past Palma off a left-side cross from the ever-present Campbell.

Trinidad will look to make it two wins in a row on Sunday against the Cayman Islands, while Honduras will meet Mexico.

Trinidad & Tobago ‘s Under 20 Women’s Team made a winning start  to the CONCACAF Women’s Championship defeating Honduras 2-0 on Friday night at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

It was the first win for the T&T team at the final round in six appearances and a much deserved one as captain Anique Walker and Brianna Ryce each netted a goal to give the Soca Princesses the first three points on offer in Group B.

Mexico dominated hosts Cayman Islands 6-0 in the second match to go top of the standings ahead of T&T on goal difference. T&T will face Cayman Islands in the second match on Sunday.

The T&T players work black armbands as a mark of respect for deceased national men’s player Akeem Adams.

Honduras, playing in its first-ever CONCACAF Under-20 finals, started brightly and remained active throughout the evening.

In the 19th minute, Lauren Hall dribbled into the right side of the  T&T box and unleashed a shot that goalkeeper Tanesha Palmer did well to palm over the crossbar.

Two minutes later, T&T went on attack as the influential Patrice Campbell burst into the left side of the Honduran box, ripping an attempt that goalkeeper Kelin Palma couldn’t catch. Maribiz Guevara, however, was able to clear the ball from danger.

At the half-hour mark, Honduras was presented with a free-kick positioned at the upper-right corner of the penalty area.  Hall’s ensuing effort did not miss by much as it whistled past the near post.

Ryce then showed some silky skills, dribbling on the left-side and snaking a cross that traveled in front of the Honduran goal before it was kicked out of bounds at the far post.

T&T, though, would not pass up on the next opportunity that presented itself in the 39th minute.  Campbell delivered a corner kick that Walker flew through the air to meet.  The charged ball hit off Palma’s hands, rebounded off the crossbar and landed just over the goal line.

Two minutes after the interval, Campbell was in the thick of the action once again. The 19-year-old lofted a delightful feed on the right side of the box to Donika Murray, who cut back inside and cracked a left-footed shot that Palma saved. The ball bounced around with Ryce and Campbell looking to follow up, but the Hondurans kept it out of the net.

Ryce made it 2-0 in the 49th minute, sending a wonderful glancing header past Palma off a left-side cross from the ever-present Campbell.

T&T head coach Izler Browne was pleased with the opening win but warns that T&T must maintain its winning ways to advance to the semi-finals.

“It’s a great feeling to get off the mark in the first match. I thought the girls worked hard and they deserved the victory. We knew we had to get a good start to keep our hopes alive and we did just that. Now it’s on to the next game against the host nation and we must maintain our discipline and complete the job again. We have to remain focused and ensure we book our spot in the next round,” Browne said.

The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinals on Friday, January 17.  The semifinal winners will contest the final, as well as qualify directly for the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.  The winner of the third-place match also earns a coveted ticket to the event.
