    Trinidad beats Jamaica for Caribbean bragging rights

    GUATEMALA CITY - Candace Seaton scored off the underside the crossbar in the 65th minute and gave Trinidad & Tobago a 1-0 victory over Jamaica on Monday in a match for Caribbean pride at the CONCACAF Under-20 Women's Championship.

    Both entered the game already eliminated from semifinal contention and with two losses each in Group B play, having been outscored by a combined 14-1.

    After having a shot pushed off the underside of the crossbar by Jamaican goalkeeper Leigh-Ann Jaggon seven minutes earlier, Seaton used a piece of individual skill to give the Soca Princesses the victory.

    She took a ball down the right side, cut inside Jamaican defender Lia Blake and took a touch inside the penalty area before deftly looping a right-footed shot just out of the reach of a stretching Jaggon that nicked the crossbar before settling in the back of the net.

    It was the first goal for Trinidad in the tournament since Natasha St. Louis scored in the first minute of its opening game against Mexico.

    Jaggon thwarted Seaton in the 58th when the Trinidad winger hit a 25-meter shot that the goalkeeper had to push upward off the underside of the bar before it bounded out.

    Jamacia had the better of play in the first half with Natasha St. Louis hitting the left corner of the post and crossbar from 25 meters in the 24th minute.

    Jamaica returned home with three losses in as many games and without a goal.

    Trinidad finished with a flurry, hitting the post again when Mariah Shade's volley of a rebound hit a sprawled Jaggon and deflected off the goal and out of play.
