    Suriname win Group B, on to FC Final tournament in May

    Sparked by two second-half goals by Suzanna Berenstein, Suriname defeated Antigua & Barbuda 3:1 to capture Group B of Caribbean Zone qualifying for the FC Girls Under-19 Championship at Antigua Recreation Ground in St. John's.

    Nathalie Benjamin opened the scoring for Suriname in the 34th minute. However, the hosts drew even a minute later on a strike by Akeliah Hillhouse and the teams headed to half time drawn at 1:1.

    After neither team mustered much in the offensive third in the opening minutes of the second stanza, Berenstein broke the game open with goals in the 54th and 74th minutes that gave her seven for the tournament to clinch the victory for Suriname, who finished Group B with an unblemished mark of three wins, no draws and no losses.

    With the win, Suriname move into the FC final tournament, to be held in Trinidad & Tobago from 5-12 May 2002. They will join Caribbean qualifiers Haiti and Jamaica, North Zone entrants USA and Mexico, winner and runner-up of the Central American qualifier and the host country.

    The Central American Zone qualifying tournament set is for 20-24 March in Panama. Four teams will participate - Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua and the host country - with the top two of the single round-robin advancing the FC finals in May.
