    2016 CONCACAF U-15 Girls’ Championship

    ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex – Orlando, Florida, USA

    Match Recaps – August 12, 2016

    GROUP A

    Dominican Republic 0, Mexico 9

    Mexico felt no aftereffects of a hard-fought 1-0 loss in its previous outing against the United States, posting a 9-0 win over the Dominican Republic.  With the score already 2-0, Maria Mauleon (15’, 46’, 60’) struck for the first of her three goals.  Anette Vazquez (61’, 64’) netted a brace, while Alejandra Diaz (10’), Karen Gomez (13’), Ashly Martinez (44’) and Dania Perez (52’) tallied once apiece.

    USA 1, Haiti 0

    Sunshine Flores (35’+2) struck for the only goal in this tightly-contested encounter, which gave the United States a place in the quarterfinals with a game to spare.  In its three wins, the Americans have to concede a goal.  Although it lost for a second straight time by a 1-0 score, Haiti was up to the task and nearly stuck a ball inside the right post late in the second half.

     

    GROUP C

    St. Vincent & the Grenadines 0, Nicaragua 1

    Yorcelly Humphreys (27’) scored with eight minutes remaining in the first half to lift Nicaragua (1-1-1, 4) to its first win of the competition, defeating St. Vincent & the Grenadines, 1-0.

    Puerto Rico 7, Grenada 1

    First-place Puerto Rico maintained its perfect start to the competition and secured a quarterfinal place with a 7-1 win over Grenada (0-1-1, 1), increasing its goal haul to 15 in three outings.  Five different players accounted for the first five goals as Gabriela Torres (6’), Maria Luisa Colon (17’), Rocio Perez (27’), Isabelle Rivera (50’) and Carolina Vazquez (61’) got their names on the scoresheet.  Yarielis Maldonado (70’+1, 70’+3) completed the scoreline with a stoppage-time brace.  Grenada’s only goal was tallied by Britney Charles (54’), who made the score 4-1.

     

    GROUP D

    Anguilla 0, Barbados 2

    In another close match, Barbados got goals early and late to get past Anguilla (0-0-2, 0), 2-0.  A Tiana Sealy (9’) strike and an own-goal by Lala Romney (63’) were all the Barbadians needed to reinforce their progression claims.  2-0.  Sealy now has four goals in two outings.

    US Virgin Islands 0, Curacao 6

    Lindsey Hart (23’, 64’, 66’) made it five goals in two games, netting a hat-trick and helping Curacao earn a 6-0 win over the US Virgin Islands (0-0-2, 0).  Reismarly Tokaay (7’, 50’) added a brace, while Staygin Stephens (36’) made it two goals in as many outings.
