    CFU U-17 Women: Trinidad, Haiti qualify for CONCACAF

    Action from the Caribbean Football Union Women’s Under-17 Tournament semifinal between Trinidad & Tobago  (white) and Puerto Rico on September 27, 2013, at the Stade Sylvio Cator in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.


    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Trinidad & Tobago and host Haiti advanced to Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Women’s Under-17 Tournament final, as well as qualified for the 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship, after winning semifinal matches Friday at the Stade Sylvio Cator.


    Here’s a recap of the semifinal action:


    Puerto Rico 1, Trinidad & Tobago 4

    Trinidad & Tobago scored three goals in extra time to defeat Puerto Rico 4-1 and advance to the final of the Caribbean Football Union Women's Under-17 Tournament, as well as qualify for the 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship.


    The Trinidadians will be participating for the third time in the CONCACAF competition, which will take October 30 - November 9 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.


    After a 0-0 first-half, Puerto Rico broke the deadlock in the 48th minute through a volley from Marjorie off a Monica Ocasio corner kick.


    The young Soca Princesses needed a lift and they got it in the 69th minute as team captain Zoe Swift equalized, firing home from just inside the 18-yard box.


    With the score even at the end of regulation, the semifinal went to extra time to determine the winner.


    Trinidad netted the first of three unanswered tallies in the 95th minute.  Dennecia Prince delivered a free kick into the goal area for Swift, who fed Corel Carmichael for what proved to be the game-winning goal.


    Four minutes later, Summer Arjoon placed a corner onto the head of Maya Matouk to make it 3-1 and Prince completed the scoreline in the 108th minute.


    In Sunday’s championship match, Trinidad will square off against the winner of the second semifinal between Haiti and Bermuda.



    Bermuda 0, Haiti 4

    Isnada Lebrun netted a brace and Haiti defeated Bermuda 4-0 to advance to the final of the CFU Women's Under-17 Cup Tournament, plus secure a berth in the 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Women’s Championship.


    The home side’s result and performance delighted the crowd of 2,500 at the Stade Sylvio Cator, the site of Sunday’s championship match against Trinidad & Tobago.


    Lebrun scored her first goal in the third minute to open the scoring, finding the back of the net off a cross from Sherly Jeudy


    Haiti made it 2-0 in the 62nd minute, when Jeudy fought her way down the left flank to shoot past onrushing goalkeeper Micah Pond.


    Batcheba Louis tallied her tournament-best 15th goal in 78th minute from the penalty spot and Lebrun completed the scoreline only a minute later with a simple tap in.


    “I am happy for the girls and we have reached the CONCACAF qualifiers but there is still one more game to be played against a very good Trinidad team; so I am expecting a good game on Sunday,” said Haiti head coach James Morisset.
