MIAMI, Florida – This Friday at 7:00 PM ET, Concacaf will be airing a re-broadcast of the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship Third-Place match between Jamaica and Panama and the Final between the United States and Canada on Concacaf’s Facebook and YouTube pages, in addition to the Concacaf App.
Over the course of the 12 matches played in Group A and Group B, there were several notable individual performances.
In Group A, United States FW Alex Morgan made the most of her time on the field. Morgan appeared in two of the three group stage matches, but on each occasion she bagged a brace, scoring twice in the second half of the opening 6-0 win over Mexico, followed by a goal in each half in the 7-0 victory against Trinidad and Tobago.
2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup hero Carli Lloyd was also on the mark in the second match for the U.S., a 6-0 win versus Panama in which she scored a hat trick.
While Mexico were unable to reach the knockout stage of the tournament, Charlyn Corral was a valuable presence for El Tricolor, especially in Mexico’s 4-1 triumph over Trinidad and Tobago in which she scored a goal in each half.
Then there was of course the performance of 17-year-old Panama GK Yenith Bailey, who recorded two clean sheets to help lift Panama to a 3-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago and a 2-0 victory against Mexico for a second-place finish in the group.
Not to be outdone were the individual exploits in Group B.
Costa Rica had several star performers in their three matches, highlighted by the braces scored by Priscilla Chinchilla, Shirley Cruz and Maria Barrantes in the 8-0 win against Cuba.
It is not often that a player will score four goals in a single match at any level, yet that feat was achieved by two Canada players in their 12-0 victory against Cuba. Adriana Leon and Jordyn Huitema each scored two goals in each half to pave the way for Canada against the Cubans.
Jamaica made history at the 2018 CWC by qualifying for their first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup and the groundwork for that was laid in the group stage. Khadija Shaw scored the game-winning goal in both of Jamaica’s group stage wins, including in the narrow 1-0 win over Costa Rica.
Shaw also opened the scoring in Jamaica’s 9-0 triumph over Cuba in which Jody Brown also grabbed the spotlight with a hat trick.
