Qualifiers for the Central American and Caribbean Games - Panama vs Jamaica

GUY 0 vs PUR 0

The first female match of Day 2 left Guyana and Puerto Rico without a goal despite many opportunities.

The first penalty corner of the game was won by Puerto Rico, but a slow pull and hesitation at the top of the D gave the Guyanese defenders enough room to clear the ball. Goalkeeper Briawna Gordon denied Marisa Miro a chance at scoring in the second period of the game.

Puerto Rico endured a great deal of pressure from Kerensa Fernandes but Kayla Chapman and Captain Josephina Freaney intercepted their efforts to put Guyana in the lead.



BER 4 vs GUA

The scorching sun at the JN Hockey Field caught Bermuda fighting for a chance to score their first goal in the CAC Qualifier. Guatemala was left to play a very defensive game –as Bermuda did not hesitate to apply the pressure. Jasmine Patterson’s penalty stroke was saved by Norma Quevedo, but moments later she returned to put Bermuda 1-0 ahead in the 12th minute of the game. The second came in the 39th minute from Selina Whitter. Bermuda kept penetrating the circle, hungry for more goals, and succeeded in the 50th and 51st minute courtesy of Keishae Robinson and Chrysda Smith respectively.



PAN 0 vs JAM 3

The final match featured Panama who were looking to gain points and Jamaica looking to remain at the top of the table. Jamaica instantly attacked the Panamanian half of the field, and remained dominant throughout. In the 11th minute Kamille Griffiths put Jamaica in front by way of a penalty corner and she struck the back board a minute later to put her team 2 goals ahead.

Panamanian goalkeeper Daryeli Castro made a remarkable save to deny Griffiths of what could have been her hattrick. Captain Celina Portugal and Castro held steady in the defence to keep Jamaica from widening the gap. Ebony McLean closed off the scoring in the 38th minute from a penalty corner.
