    Suriname, Antigua & Barbuda continue their roll

    Suriname and Antigua & Barbuda won their second matches in Group B of the FC Under-19 Women's Qualifying at the Antigua Recreation Grounds in St. John's on Saturday, setting up a winner-take-all matchup Tuesday to decide who will qualify for the FC final tournament to be held 5-12 May in Trinidad & Tobago.

    Suriname took a 4:0 lead at the interval before expanding it to a 12:0 victory against Dominica. In the second match, the host nation opened a 2:1 lead against Guyana at the halftime interval before capping the match by a 3:1 scoreline.

    After Dominica's Delcia Lawrence was sent off in the third minute for intentionally handling the ball in the goalmouth, Nathali Benjamin tallied twice in the first half to fuel the victory. Raquel Zeegelaar added contributed a goal before halftime as did Suzanna Berenstein who finished the afternoon with five.

    The second half was a much more wide-open contest; in addition to Berenstein's four markers Zeegelaar chipped in two late goals and Rachel Righters added a lone strike.

    In the afternoon's other match, the Antigua & Barbuda rebounded from a quick goal to defeat Guyana. Akeliah Hillhouse scored two first-half goals to pace the winners, while Stacy Thomas closed out their scoring in the 63rd minute. Guyana's lone goal came in the first minute of play off the foot of Stacy Hoyte.
