Woodruffe’s goal was Guyana’s first goal of the tournament, but Trinidad & Tobago comes away with 7th place
To decide 7th/8th place of the 2013 Women’s Pan American Cup, Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago played. In the 8th minute, Trinidad and Tobago received the first penalty corner of the match, but the play was broke by Guyana’s defense. Play was mostly in Trinidad & Tobago’s attacking half, but Guyana played strong defense to keep Trinidad & Tobago out of their attacking circle. Late in the half, Guyana had possession in their attacking half, but couldn’t get a shot off. Both teams continued to battle for possession in the midfield. In the 33rd minute, Guyana had another rare opportunity on attack and earned a penalty corner. The hard short was blocked by Trinidad & Tobago’s keeper, Anastasio Netto. Guyana earned another penalty corner and as time expired, Trisha Woodruffe put in the penalty corner goal to put Guyana ahead 1-0 over Trinidad & Tobago at halftime.
The second half also started with a penalty corner opportunity for Trinidad & Tobago. Guyana’s defense came out fast and did not allow Trinidad & Tobago to get a shot off. Guyana’s keeper Alysa Xavier made some big saves to keep Guyana’s lead. Guyana’s defense broke up another penalty corner and then rushed back on attack. Aliyah Gordon gave Guyana a two goal lead in the 43rd minute. Play was then back in Trinidad & Tobago’s attacking end, but Guyana’s defense continued to play hard; and stopped two penalty corner shots by Trinidad & Tobago. For much of the half, both teams fought hard for possession in the midfield and prevented each other from having many shot opportunities. In the 58th minute, Alanna Lewis put Trinidad & Tobago on the scoreboard after a hard penalty corner shot past Xavier. Five minutes later Dana-Lee De Gannes scored off a penalty corner to tie the match, 2-2. Soon after, Blair Wynne put in a penalty stroke to give Trinidad & Tobago the lead. Guyana had a great opportunity to tie the match with a penalty corner with less than one minute remaining. Guyana’s shot went just wide and Trinidad & Tobago came away with the 3-2 victory over Guyana. Thus, Trinidad & Tobago finished in 7th place and Guyana 8th place, respectively.
