    Trinidad moves into final U-17 women's qualifying

    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - Trinidad & Tobago claimed the fourth and last place in the final round of Caribbean qualifying for the CONCACAF Under-17 Women's Championship on Sunday, routing St. Kitts and Nevis 11-0 to clinch its spot with one game remaining.

    Khadisha Debesette scored four goals, including two penalties in the final 14 minutes, to lead the victory. Her twin sister Khadidra scored three in a 5-0 win over Dominca in Rosseau on September 18 and four others in 13-0 rout over Dominica in Malabar, giving the pair 11 as Trinidad has won three of four matches by a combined 29-0.

    Sunday's victory put Trinidad atop Group B in the first round of Caribbean qualifying with nine points and a game yet to play. Dominica was second with six but has no games remaining, and St. Kitts was last with no points and a match to play Tuesday in Trinidad.

    Unlike the other three groups, which were played in a tournament format in a single venue, Group B was played with each team facing the other at home and away.

    Trinidad joined the other first-round group winners the Bahamas, Guyana and Jamaica in the final round of qualifying, from which three will advance to next year's eight-team CONCACAF finals.
