Bermuda storm into last eight

Leading from the front: Nesbeth scored twice against Antigua

Bermuda’s Under-15 girls advanced to the quarter-finals of the Concacaf Championships in Orlando, Florida after three straight victories in group E.

Yesterday, they made certain of winning their group with a 7-1 win over Antigua & Barbuda, with LeiLanni Nesbeth, the captain, leading the way with a hat-trick to take her tally for the tournament so far to six.

Nesbeth opened the scoring in the eighth minute before adding a second in the sixteenth to make it 2-0.

Nia Christopher made it 3-0 in the nineteenth minute, before strikes from Tianna Mullen in the 31st and 32nd minutes put Bermuda comfortably ahead 5-0. Jaden Masters added the sixth a minute later before Nesbeth closed out the scoring with her third in the match in the 68th minute.

Bermuda won their opening match 3-0 against Cayman Islands before beating Bahamas 3-1 on Saturday, as Nesbeth got a goal in each half and Adia Gibbons the other.

Bermuda will take on the United States in the quarter-finals on Wednesday.
