Cayman U15 girls set for quarter finals

| 12/08/2014

(CNS): The girls U15 squad are bracing themselves for their quarter final game against Honduras this evening after storming to the top of their group with a series of victories at the CONCACAF Youth tournament currently being hosted in the Cayman Islands. On Sunday night the girls place six in the back of the net on a rain soaked pitch against Curacao at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.. Striker Chelsea Green scored two goals in the 20th and 22nd minutes taking her tally to six and picked up her third Player of the Match accolade. But it was Halle Medina who sent almost 1700 fans crazy when she opened the score for the hosts in just the 2nd minute.

Jasmine Powery doubled the lead in the 19th minute before Green put away her two goals to secure Cayman’s spot at the top of Group A. Two own goals in the 29th, 56th minutes finished things for Curacao in the slippery conditions.

Cayman will now face Honduras at 7:30 pm this evening at the Turman Bodden with an eye to the semis.

The girls team has made their road to the next round look easy with an impressive  4 – 1 victory over the Bahamas on Friday, when Green kicked things off for the local team with a goal in the 2nd minute.  Scott doubled the lead three minutes later and 11 year old Sabrina Suberan put Cayman 3-0 up by halftime. In the second half Scott got her second just after the restart, scoring Cayman’s ninth goal in two matches Lurann Brown scored a consolation goal for the Bahamians in the final minute of play.

A hat trick from Green had also fuelled a 5-0 victory over Bermuda in the girls opening match while Suberan's 23rd minute and Deondra Kelly's 70th completed the rout for the home team.
