    CGU15: Canada tops Trinidad for place in final

    Canada's Emma Regan (#17) cuts inside during a CONCACAF Under-15 Girls' Championship semifinal against Trinidad & Tobago on August 15, 2014, at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in George Town, Cayman Islands.

    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands -- Canada posted a 1-0 victory over Trinidad & Tobago in a CONCACAF Under-15 Girls’ Championship semifinal on Friday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

    The Canadians will face the winner of Honduras-Haiti in Sunday’s inaugural final.

    Anyssa Ibrahim struck for the game’s lone goal in the 15th minute, firing a right-footed shot from 25-yards out into the upper-right corner of the net.

    Soon after, the 15-year-old midfielder had two additional attempts, but Trinidad goalkeeper Klil Keshwar did well to thwart both.

    The Soca Princesses nearly went ahead earlier, when Raenah Campbell outpaced the Canada defense only to see her effort blocked by goalkeeper Lysianne Proulx.

    In a second-half bid to equalize, a 25-yard volley off the foot of Trinidad’s Arianna Campbell hit the underside of the crossbar.

    PLAYER OF THE MATCH: Anyssa Ibrahim (Canada)
