It was an intense start from the two teams, but soon Las Catrachas would take over, beginning with a right-footed finish from Anyeli Rodriguez in the 28’ for a 1-0 Honduras lead.

The goal gave the Central American side a big boost of confidence and a minute later in the 29’ Karla Calix scored the first of her three goals to double the advantage, 2-0.

Calix would then notch her second of the day with another right-footed strike in the 45’ to give Honduras a 3-0 halftime lead.

Calix’s scorching form carried into the second half and another right-footed shot found the back of the net in the 48’ to earn Calix a hat trick and a 4-0 lead for her side.

Honduras kept the pressure on and it became 5-0 via a Guyana own goal in the 68’ off of Anostasha Coppin.
Las Catrachas then put the finishing touch on their day in the 90+3’ with Rodriguez scoring her second of the match via the penalty spot to complete the 6-0 scoreline.
