    U-20 women's championship refs selected

    NEW YORK - Fourteen-year international veteran referee Dianne Ferreira-James of Guyana tops the pool of match officials for the CONCACAF Under-20 Women's Championship next month in Panama, the confederation announced Tuesday.

    The 41-year-old Ferreira-James refereed her 92nd international match at the CONCACAF Olympic women's qualifying tournament in January in Vancouver, Canada, a career that has also included the Brazil-Sweden semifinal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.

    She has officiated at five world championships, including the past two Olympics, four Algarve Cups and last year's Pan American Games in Mexico.

    Ferreira-James heads a list of 10 referees and 10 assistants that will administer play at the March 1-11 CONCACAF U-20 women's finals, which will determine the region's three qualifiers for the U-20 Women's World Cup in Japan August 19-September 8.
