Trinidad and Tobago wins CFU Women’s Caribbean Cup 2014
Trinidad & Tobago made history on Tuesday night, defeating Jamaica 1-0 in the final of the inaugural Caribbean Football Union Women’s Caribbean Cup at Hasely Crawford Stadium.
Mariah Shade – named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player – struck for the lone goal in the eighth minute of a match contested at a high tempo.
The host protected its lead by inserting all three of substitutes in the game’s last 20 minutes.
The Soca Princesses completed the final round with a perfect 4-0-0 record, winning Group B while scoring 20 goals and conceding none.
Jamaica was equally productive, taking Group A with maximum points from three matches. It scored 15 goals and allowed only three in four total outings.
Earlier, in the match for third place, Haiti posted a 5-1 win over Martinique.
All four teams qualified for the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Championship, which will be played 15th to 26th of October in four cities across the United States. The eight-team tournament will determine the Confederation’s representatives at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.
