    Trinidad leads trio into U-17 women's finals

    KINGTSON, Jamaica - Diarra Simmons scored a fifth goal in three games and led Trinidad & Tobago to a 1-0 victory over Jamaica on Saturday, leading both countries and the Bahamas into the CONCACAF Under-17 Women's Championship.

    The three countries finished atop the final round of Caribbean qualifying played in Jamaica and will join automatic North American qualifiers Canada, Mexico and the United States and host Guatemala in the May 2-13 finals.

    Trinidad won all three of its games and finished the final four-team round of qualifying with nine points, outscoring Jamaica, the Bahamas and Guyana by a combined 12-0. Simmons scored four goals in an opening 8-0 victory over Guyana on Tuesday. Jonelle Warwick had two in a 3-0 victory over the Bahamas on Thursday.

    Jamaica finished second with six points, having defeated the Bahamas 2-0 and Guyana 5-0, with the Bahamas third with three points, beating Guyana 1-0 Saturday night on Keisha McCarvey's 43rd-minute goal.

    It will be the third straight trip to the finals for Jamaica while the Bahamas will be making its debut in the CONCACAF championship. Trinidad will be returning for the first time since 2008.

    One berth remains to be decided for the U-17 Women's finals. Panama and Costa Rica will square off December 7 and December 11 in a two-leg playoff to complete the field.
