    El Salvador wins U-17 Women's qualifier

    SANTA TECLA, El Salvador - El Salvador defeated visiting Nicaragua 3-1 on Saturday in the first leg of their Central American Football Union (UNCAF) Under-17 Women's qualifying series at the Estadio Las Delicias.

    Maggi Segovia gave the Salvadorans a 14th minute lead, netting off a pass from Erika Zuniga.

    Nicaragua's response was swift and it leveled through Yessenia Lopez four minutes later.

    Lopez continued to be an offensive threat, forcing two saves from Eleonor Hernandez, before El Salvador went ahead for good.

    In the 42nd minute, Lesly Molina latched onto a pass from Karla Bernardino and beat Nicaraguan goalkeeper Ana Portocarrero.

    Sandra Cortez struck for an insurance goal nine minutes after the interval with a beautifully taken free-kick to make it 3-1, sealing the victory.

    The sides will meet again on June 1 in Managua, Nicaragua, with the team scoring the most goals over the two legs progressing to the next CONCACAF Under17 Women's Championship.
