Bermuda suffer heavy loss
Bermuda's hopes of advancing to the Concacaf Under-20 Women's Championship quarter-finals were dashed in the harshest fashion after an emphatic 9-1 defeat against Jamaica on Saturday.
Nia Christopher had given Bermuda hope of a comeback, in the round-of-16 match in the Dominican Republic, scoring what proved to only be consolation, with Jamaica leading 2-0.
Despite the disappointing margin of defeat, assistant coach Vance Brown spoke of the positivity among his young squad, with majority still eligible to play at under-17 level.
“At 3-1 we were competing,” he said. “As the game went on they stepped it up and then with the conditions, almost 100 degrees, which we aren't used to.
“The majority of the group will play for the under-17s in Mexico in April, so we're hoping they do good things.
“The players were in good spirits and hopefully we can carry it on to Mexico.”
