Cayman’s U20 girls advance in CONCACAF Championship

Cayman Islands U20 girls national team.

The Cayman Islands Under-20 girls’ national team defeated St. Kitts and Nevis in their final group stage match to move on to round of 16 in the CONCACAF Women’s Championships.

The girls got off to a rough start in the Dominican Republic, where the tournament was held last week, losing their first two games to Haiti 8-0 and Trinidad and Tobago 2-0.
However, in the game that mattered most, the Cayman girls fought hard for a 3-2 victory over St. Kitts and Nevis. St. Kitts opened the scoring with a penalty which was followed by another penalty but this time, in favour of Cayman. Molly Kehoe stepped up to take the shot and scored to close the first half 1-1.

In the second half, Kehoe passed a through ball to Alexia Bromfield who scored off the assist, taking the game to 2-1. St. Kitts would go on to level the game again, but it was Bromfield who refused to let the game end in a draw, putting the ball at the back of the net for the second time to end the game 3-2. Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago and the Cayman Islands have all moved on to the knockout stage.
