| 18/12/2013

(CONCACAF): Strikers Shanelle Frederick and Shanai Allen scored for the Cayman Islands National Under 20 women’s team in a 2-2 draw in the opening fixture of the overseas training camp. Playing against Golden Soccer Academy at Vizcaya Park, Frederick broke the deadlock in the 78th minute and Allen doubled the score in the 84th. In the final minutes, Cayman looked on course for victory, but two late penalties both scored by Nathalia Smith earned the home team the draw. The Cayman Islands team was on the pitch on Tuesday night against another local club before departing for Costa Rica today.

In San Jose, the national team faces the Costa Rica Under 20 team which Head Coach Joe Supe has pinpointed as a crucial gauge of the team’s readiness. The Cayman Islands is one of eight teams competing in the CONCACAF Women’s Under 20 Championships in Grand Cayman in January.
