Under-17 team brush aside Dominica in tournament opener

Perfect start: Bermuda under-17 girls’ football team, who beat Dominica 4-1 in their opening match of the Concacaf Women’s Qualifiers in the Dominican Republic

Bermuda under-17 girls’ football team got their Concacaf Women’s Qualifier campaign off to the ideal start with a convincing 4-1 victory over Dominica in their opening group F encounter in the Dominican Republic yesterday.

A brace from Keyandae Lightbourne and a further goal from Camryn Lines put Gary Adams’s side in firm control with a 3-1 lead at the interval before Avanni Patton added a fourth in the second half to clinch all three points.

The result leaves Bermuda second on goal difference in the three-team group behind leaders Canada, who thrashed Dominica 21-0 in their opener on Sunday, with the two teams facing off tomorrow.

A total of 26 teams have been split into six groups with the winners of each advancing to the 2024 Concacaf Women’s Under-17 Championship, where they will join the top two ranked nations, Mexico and the United States, who were seeded directly into the championship’s group stage.
