    Action from the Caribbean Football Union Women’s Under-17 Tournament finals match between Antigua (left) and Puerto Rico on September 22, 2013, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

     

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -- Puerto Rico booked passage into the 2013 Caribbean Football Union Women's Under-17 Tournament semifinals with a 5-0 victory over Antigua and Barbuda on Sunday at the Stade Sylvio Cator.

     

    Juliana Templeman netted in her second straight finals game to open the scoring in the 30th minute, before Marjorie Martinez tallied twice prior to the break.

     

    Martinez, the Puerto Rican captain, connected on a corner kick from Alyssa Rodriguez in the 37th minute to squeeze the ball past goalkeeper Shawnisha Hector.

     

    She then made it 3-0 in the first minute of stoppage time, clinically finishing after a sparkling run down the left side.

     

    Puerto Rico continued its fine play in the second half.

     

    Substitute Mariana Llopez-Crespo made an impact shortly after entering the game, firing a right-footed shot past Antigua goalkeeper Shekea O'garro in the 64th minute.

     

    Fabiola Miranda closed the Puerto Rican goal account in the 80th minute, scoring her fourth goal in two games after weaving through the Antiguan defense.

     

    Puerto Rico now has maximum points from two games, while Antigua has yet to register a point.  Haiti (1-0-0, 3 points) will face the U.S. Virgin Islands later in the evening.
