    Hydes helps Cayman Islands U20 women win friendly

    Brianna Hydes (#9), captain of the Cayman Islands Women's Under-20 National Team, answers a question during a press conference.

     

    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – The Cayman Islands Women’s Under-20 National Team scored a goal in each half and defeated a Cayman Islands Women’s Select Team 2-1 on Saturday at the T.E. McField Sports Centre. 

    The match was a warm-up for the U20s as the Cayman Islands prepares to host the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship next month.

    Shanelle Frederick opened the scoring for the national side in the 32nd minute, before team captain Brianna Hydes doubled the lead sixteen minutes into the second half.

    Kimberly Pitta netted the select team’s lone goal in the 75th minute. 

    “To be able to lead these young ladies is an extreme privilege”, Hydes said after the encounter.  “I was once the little girl of the team but being one of the senior players comes with a lot of responsibility.  I have to be the role model and set the standards.”

    The 19-year-old took a break from her studies at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina to participate in head coach Joe Supe’s week-long training camp.  She confessed that playing the last few seasons in the United States -- first at the Rabun Gap Nacoochee High School -- has improved her temperament on the pitch.

    “Playing in the United States has helped me mature as a player,” the midfielder noted.  “I control my temper a lot better and the physical nature of the game in the United States is vastly different.”

    The CONCACAF competition will be played entirely at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex, January 9-19.

    The Cayman Islands is in Group B with Mexico, Honduras and Trinidad & Tobago.
