Dominican Republic won the 2nd match of Pool B on Day 1 of the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games (Women) against Guyana 4-1.
The first 20 minutes of the 1st half was evenly contested with both teams creating scoring opportunities but neither team being able to convert any of them. Dominican Republic got their 1st goal in the 30th minute when Agustina BIROCHO deflected a high ball into the goal. This opening goal seemingly inspired Dominican Republic and three minutes later BIROCHO converted a penalty corner to make it 2-0 and this score held until the end of the 1st half.
Guyana despite being behind, played with a lot of courage and determination as they tried to get on the score sheet in the 2nd half. Despite this however Dominican Republic’s Magalys ORTEGA added to her team’s tally with a field goal in the 45th minute and five minutes later Lucia NAVAMUEL made it 4-0 in the 49th minute.
Guyana’s “never say die” resolve was rewarded as Kerensa FERNANDES scored her team’s only goal as in the 69th minute.
