WOMEN’S U-20: Guyana, Mexico, Haiti and T&T advance


The final four places in the 2020 Concacaf Under-20 Women’s Championship were decided on Sunday in the final four matches of the Round of 16.

At the Estadio Panamericano in San Cristobal, Haiti continued to flex their scoring muscles with a 12-0 win over Barbados.

Melchie Dumornay’s (24’, 25’, 33’, 52’) scorching form continued with four goals, while Valentina Ornis (16’, 38’, 67’) notched a hat-trick and Estericove Joseph (2’), Dayana Pierre Louis (20’), Ruthny Mathurin (48’), Mirlene Dorce (82’) and Flero Surpris (89’) added goals.

With her total on the day, Durmonay currently leads the CUW20 in scoring with 10 goals.

The day’s second match in San Cristobal was the most dramatic of the tournament thus far, with Trinidad and Tobago advancing past Puerto Rico 5-4 in a penalty shootout following a 3-3 draw.

Afiyah Cornwall (3’, 44’) had the goals for the Soca Warriors in regular time, while Puerto Rico got scores from Malina Pardo (18’) and Idelys Vazquez (24’). The 2-2 draw meant another 30 minutes of extra time, with Maria-frances Serrant (107’) scoring for Trinidad and Tobago and Cristina Torres (112’) leveling for the Boricuas in the extra period.

Matters had to be settled from the penalty spot, with Trinidad and Tobago converting all five attempts to punch their ticket to the final eight.

The other two matches took place at the Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo, beginning with Mexico rolling past Grenada 12-1.

Alison Gonzalez (12’, 26’) and Dania Perez (73’, 83’) both had braces, while Mariel Roman Pacheco (11’), Reyna Reyes (21’), Karla Zempoalteca (58’), Venicia Juarez (71’), Maricarmen Reyes (77’), Nayeli Diaz (89’) and own goals from Grenada’s Treasher Valcin (36’) and Judy Mcintosh (56’) contributed to El Tricolor’s scoreline. Sheranda Charles (49’) scored the lone goal for Grenada.

The day was rounded out by Guyana’s 2-0 win over Cayman Islands in which a double from Audrey Narine (24’, 55’) did the trick for the Golden Jaguars. (Concacaf)
