HAMILTON, Bermuda, (CMC) –Bermuda moved into top gear to crush Curaçao 5-1 in a CONCACAF Caribbean Women’s Under-20 Group B qualifier at the National Stadium here on Wednesday night.
Substitutes Adia Gibbons, Nia Christopher and Jahzyiah Samuels played a major role in Bermuda’s victory, all scoring after coming off the bench.
Deshae Darrell broke the deadlock in the 56th minute but Kiara Snel levelled for the visitors nine minutes later with a superb angled shot.
Teyah Lindo put Bermuda back in front in the 69th minute before Curaçao lost striker Staygin Stephens, who was stretchered off and taken to hospital with a knee injury.
Christopher put Bermuda 3-1 up in the 81st minute, Samuels added a fourth on 85 minutes and Gibbons completed the rout with a fifth in injury time.
St Lucia’s late withdrawal has reduced the group to three teams. Jamaica face Curaçao on Friday night and then take on the hosts on Sunday.
“It’s our first time playing at home and as soon as we settled down with our first goal we knew we had it,” Bermuda captain Eva Frazzoni said afterwards.
Bermuda coach Aaron Denkins said he was pleased with the way the team stuck to their game plan.
Denkins expects a tough battle against Jamaica on Sunday, a game that could potentially decide who advances to the four-team regional finals to be held in St Kitts and Nevis from November 22-26.
