Hosts Trinidad and Tobago women team maul St Kitts/Nevis

Posted by Shanelle Weir on August 22, 2014

Hosts Trinidad and Tobago began their Women’s Caribbean Cup campaign in fine style with a 10-0 demolition of St Kitts/Nevis in their Group B encounter at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo on Wednesday night.

Trinidad and Tobago started quickly and took control of the match within the opening ten minutes. US-based forward Kennya Cordner opened the scoring in the third minute and Tasha St Louis doubled the advantage in the sixth. St Louis completed her hattrick with items in the tenth and 22nd minutes. 

Janine François also notched a double in the 55th and 59th while skipper Maylee Attin Johnson, Mariah Shade and Dernelle Mascall all netted in the 12th 44th and 68th minutes respectively before an appreciative crowd. 

In the earlier encounter of the day Martinique were in good form with a comfortable 2-0 win over Antigua/Barbuda through goals by Prisca Carin in the 12th and 64th minute. 

TT assistant coach Marlon Charles said it was important for the home team to stamp their authority early in the match. 

“We knew we had to start well and quickly and that’s exactly what happened for us tonight. The team went out there and executed well, they stuck to their game plan and the result speaks for itself,” Charles said. 

“It’s the start that we wanted for the tournament and the team can only get better from here.” 

Cordner felt though that there is still room for improvement. “We started well but I felt we could have done better. We’ve got to be more clinical in certain areas of our game. 

I was pleased with our start but we are preparing for greater competition and there are still some things we need to improve on. But it’s a good win to start with,” Cordner said. 

TT face Antigua/Barbuda in their second match at the Hasely Crawford Stadium today from 7.15 pm and coach Randy Waldrum will be in charge for this one. Trinidad and Tobago are vying for one of four Caribbean spots in the CONCACAF Finals in USA in October towards the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
