SVG earns lone win at U-15 girls CONCACAF Championships
St Vincent and the Grenadines mustered a single victory in the 2018 CONCACAF girls’ Under-15 football championships, which concluded last Monday at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, USA.
A 2-0 win over the United States Virgin Islands on Friday, in the play-offs with the two bottom teams in division two of the championships, ended the Vincentians’ sojourn on a high note.
Netting the two first half goals were Sonja Mc Kie and Denel Creese. St Vincent and the Grenadines was outclassed in their three previous outings.
A 3-1 defeat by Anguilla began St Vincent and the Grenadines’ campaign in Group G of the championships. Sonja Mc Kie scored the Vincentians’ lone item. That defeat was followed up by a 5-0 drubbing from Grenada and a 4-0 margin handed down by Dominica.
When St Vincent and the Grenadines debuted in the championships in 2016, their fate was similar, as the team was beaten by Nicaragua 1-0, and 5-1 by both St Lucia and Puerto Rico. Their lone triumph then, was a 5-3 win over Grenada.
