CONCACAF says League C of the Road to W Gold Cup was back in action on Monday with three matches.
Turks and Caicos Islands vs. Aruba
Group A got the day going with Aruba capturing a 5-0 victory over Turks and Caicos Islands at the TCIFA National Stadium in Providenciales, CONCACAF said.
“Aruba could not have asked for a better start, as they took a 1-0 lead just shy of the first minute mark when Bonny Lammers received a pass between two defenders and fired into goal,” it said. “The lead was doubled to 2-0 in the 10’ with Aisse Gumbs finishing a right-footed shot.
“By the 21’, it was 3-0 to Aruba, as Jennifer Henao turned in a shot that had been tipped by Turks and Caicos Islands GK Eradannia Ortiz,” CONCACAF added.
It said Aruba kept their foot on the gas in the second half and stretched the lead to 4-0 in the 75’m when Vanessa Susanna tucked away a right-footed shot.
Gumbs then capped the 5-0 scoreline with her second of the day in the 86’ on a shot from distance, CONCACAF said.
Cayman Islands vs. Anguilla
CONCACAF said the action then shifted to Group D where the Cayman Islands played to a 2-2 draw at home with Anguilla at the Truman Bodden Stadium in George Town.
Cayman Islands struck first in the 33’ through Shayana Windsor’s powerful left-footed shot for a 1-0 lead, CONCACAF said.
It said Anguilla answered right before halftime, though, evening the score at 1-1 thanks to Maiesha Minette, who swept home an inch-perfect cross from Cycoiah Wattley.
CONCACAF said Anguilla then grabbed a 2-1 lead in the 70’, when Keiana Vanterpool “slotted home a right-footed shot, but Cayman Islands had their own response, earning a share of the spoil’s courtesy of Molly Kehoe’s 2-2 equalizing goal in the 74’ on a right-footed shot from long-range.”
Belize vs. Bonaire
Closing out the evening was another contest in Group A as Belize topped Bonaire 3-0 at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan, Belize, according to CONCACAF.
It said Mikhaila Bowden opened the scoring in the 33’ by collecting a ball on the left wing, charging toward goal and firing into net for a 1-0 Belize lead.
CONCACAF said the momentum stayed with Belize going into the second half, and it was 2-0 in the 47’, when Khalydia Velasquez followed up her own blocked shot for a goal.
CONCACAF said Velasquez then got her second of the night in the 64’ for a 3-0 Belize lead by “volleying in just a few feet in front of net to complete the scoring for Belize.”
