    COUVA, Trinidad & Tobago -- Costa Rica (1W-0D-2L, 3 points) overcame a one-goal halftime deficit to earn a 2-1 Group A victory over host Trinidad & Tobago (0-0-3, 0) in the last 2018 CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship match for each on Monday at Ato Boldon Stadium.

    Both sides were eliminated from contention after suffering losses to Haiti and Canada, respectively, on January 22.

    T&T scored against the run of play in the 37th minute. Jaasiel Forde sent a lead pass from the right flank into the box to Dennecia Prince, who slotted the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Nicoles Genis for a 1-0 lead and her team-best second goal of the tournament.

    Only two minutes after she came on at the half, Fabiola Villalobos made an impact by equalizing on a penalty kick after goalkeeper Klil Keshwar took her down in the box. Villalobos smashed her shot into the upper left corner to knot the score at 1-1.

    In the 56th minute, Stephannie Blanco booted a free kick from the Costa Rican side of the field that glanced off the head of Trinidad's Shenieka Paul toward the net. The ball bounded to Hillary Corrales on the left side as the midfielder deftly used the outside of her right foot to redirect into the goal before colliding with Keshwar.

    The goalkeeper made a marvelous save in the 33rd minute, blocking Catalina Estrada’s drilled effort from 12-yards out onto the crossbar
