GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman – Captain Lauren Scott scored a braced and sent host Cayman Islands to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Girls’ Under 15 Championship, with an impressive 4-1 victory over the Bahamas.
Cayman got off to a fast start, with Chelsea Green tucking a goal home in the 2nd minute after a goal mouth scramble. 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 and booking a spot in Wednesday’s quarterfinals. Laurann Brown scored a consolation goal for the Bahamians in the final minute of play.
” I’m very happy for them,” said Cayman Islands Head Coach Ruben Flores.
“The goal was always to have a good first round, but we still have another game to go and I want our team to be convincing and continue to play well. I just want the people to see that what they are doing is very consistent and not a fluke.”
Striker Chelsea Green scored her tournament leading fourth goal of the competition. Cayman returns to action against Curacao on Sunday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.
