    MACOYA, Trinidad - Cuba claimed the last berth in the CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship, beating St. Kitts and Nevis 6-0 Sunday to join Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica as the Caribbean representatives.

    Forward Mariah Shade and midfielder Natasha St. Louis finished atop the scoring leaders with eight goals apiece, same as Raquel Rodriguez of Costa Rica, who has six in a 9-0 victory over Honduras on August 16.
