    Surinam and Jamaica Earn U20 Victories

    Surinam and Jamaica both earned victories in their opening qualifying games for the CONCACAF Women's U20 Qualifying Tournament.

    In the four team Caribbean qualifying group, which will determine which three Caribbean teams proceed to the CONCACAF event, Surinam defeated Haiti 2-1 thanks to two goals from Aisa Smit (49, 68) with Nadia Valentin scoring Haiti's consolation goal on 75 minutes.

    In the subsequent game, between group hosts Trinidad & Tobago and Jamaica, it was the visitors who came out winners by a 1-0 scoreline thanks to a second half strike by Shanique Mitchell (65 minutes).

    Play continues at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar, Trinidad, on Tuesday 15 November when Jamaica plays Surinam and Haiti meets Trinidad & Tobago.

    The top three teams in this Caribbean group will be joined by two Central American sides (Panama and one more to be determined) along with Canada, Mexico and USA, in an eight-team final round of qualification taking place in January of next year. From this event, three CONCACAF teams will advance to the 2006 FIFA Women's U20 World Championship in Russia.
