Guyana beaten 3-0 by Haiti in Concacaf Women’s U-20
Just four teams remain in the 2020 Concacaf Under-20 Women’s Championship following the results of Wednesday’s quarter-finals in which the Dominican Republic, United States, Haiti and Mexico earned victories.
The day started at the Estadio Panamericano in San Cristobal where hosts Dominican Republic enjoyed a history-making 2-1 win over Jamaica.
It marks the first time that the Dominican Republic have reached the semi-finals of any Concacaf tournament in either men’s or women’s football.
Kristian Garcia gave the Dominican Republic a 1-0 lead in the 35’, but Jody Brown would notch her ninth goal of the tournament and brought Jamaica level 1-1 in the 37’.
In the end though, the winning goal would belong to the Dominican Republic, as Mia Asenjo scored in the 74’ to deliver the 2-1 final.
The second match of the day in San Cristobal saw another dominating performance from Haiti MF Melchie Durmonay.
The 16-year-old came into the day as the 2020 CU20W’s leading scorer and she added to that margin with a hat trick as Haiti rolled past Guyana 3-0.
Dumornay scored in the 18’, 54’ and 60’, giving her 13 goals in the tournament and putting Haiti one victory away from a second straight FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup berth.
The Estadio Olimpico Felix Sanchez in Santo Domingo was the site of the day’s other two matches, starting with the U.S. downing Canada 4-0.
Mia Fishel scored her ninth and 10th goals in the tournament in the 35’ and 67’, sandwiching scores from Brianna Pinto in the 41’ and Kennedy Wesley in the 54’ for the four-time CU20W champions.
The day was then rounded out by Mexico topping Trinidad and Tobago 4-0.
Anette Vazquez scored right before halftime in the 45+1’ to give the reigning CUW20 champions a big momentum boost, laying the groundwork for goals from Gabriela Juarez in the 56’, Alison Gonzalez in the 68’ and capped in the 71’ through Destinee Manzo. (Concacaf)
