    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Batcheba Louis scored 11 goals as host Haiti posted a 22-0 victory over the U.S. Virgin Islands on Sunday in the 2013 Caribbean Football Union Women's Under-17 Tournament finals.

     

    A crowd of 2,000 watched the Group A encounter at the Stade Sylvio Cator, which saw the home side clinch a place in the tournament’s semifinals. 

     

    Earlier in the day, Puerto Rico defeated Antigua 5-0 to seal the group’s other berth in the knockout phase. The table toppers will square off on Tuesday to decide the top two places in the table.

     

    Louis opened the scoring in the sixth minute and added four more before the referee blew her whistle to end the half with the score 14-0.  Prior to that, though, Isnada Lebrun struck for five of her six goals.

     

    After converting a penalty kick in the 54th minute, Louis remained on the offensive, tallying five more times from the 60th minute through stoppage time.

     

    The home side’s other goals came from Rudena Pailere (7’, 28’, 79’), Sherly Jeudy (30’) and Verlene Estime (43’).

     

    “I'm happy to see the girls enjoying themselves and playing hard, but they know what our goal is and it's not to beat teams by 20 goals but to win, even if it is by one goal and qualify for the CONCACAF Under-17 tournament,” said Haiti head coach James Morisset after the game.

     

    NOTES: Louis’ goals were scored in the 6’, 14’, 16’, 32’, 44’, 54’ pen, 60’, 78’, 83’, 90’+1, 90+2…Lebrun’s goals were scored in the 9’, 19’, 22’, 24’, 29’, 86’. They have combined to score 23 of Haiti’s 28 tournament goals.
