    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – Trinidad & Tobago earned a place in semifinals of a CONCACAF Women’s Championship for the first time on Sunday, defeating the host Cayman Islands 4-0 at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

    The win guaranteed that the Soca Princesses and Mexico will progress from Group B with a game to spare, while Honduras and Cayman have been eliminated from contention.  Though both sides have six points from two games, the Mexicans have a hold on the group’s top spot thanks to superior difference (+15 to +6).  They will square off on Tuesday to decide the group title.

    Before the fans had a chance to settle into their seats, Trinidad was threatening to get a quick goal and it did so in the second minute. 

    Patrice Campbell dribbled down the left and delivered a pass that snaked through the box to Shanisa Camejo, whose right-footed shot beat goalkeeper Kristina Seymour.

    The home team’s unlucky fortune 15 minutes later proved to be good for the visitors.  Trinidad played a pass into the box that a Caymanian defender was able to get a foot on.  The ball, however, hit off teammate Jetena Bodden and looped over Seymour into the net.

    Five minutes before the break, Trinidad went ahead 3-0.  Campbell took a right-sided corner kick that Khadidra Debesette was able to head just inside the left post. 

    Like the start of the first half, the Caribbean runner-up struck early in the second.

    Cayman had difficulty clearing out of its own penalty area.  Brianna Ryce eventually ended up with the ball on the right and sent it towards goal.  The outstanding Anique Walker latched on and knocked it in with clinical comfort.

    Trinidad, which has not conceded a goal in three straight CONCACAF under-20 games dating back to 2010, had never emerged from the competition’s group stage in five previous attempts.
