CONCACAF said there were several commanding performances on Saturday, as the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship Qualifying continued with several group leaders in action.

Table toppers Haiti flexed their scoring muscles in a 21-0 victory against British Virgin Islands in Group E at the A.O Shirley Recreation Ground in Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands (BVI).

CONCACAF said Batcheba Louis (33’, 39’, 42’, 58’, 89’) had five goals, Roselord Borgella (4’, 21’, 22’, 45’) recorded four goals, Melchie Dumornay (6’, 11’, 32’), Roseline Eloissaint (63’, 73’, 79’) and Mikerline Saintfelix (84’, 87’, 90’) all notched hat tricks to go along with a Kara Lewis own goal (8’) and scores from Nerilia Mondesir (51’) and Kethna Louis (77’).

“Trinidad and Tobago are now atop Group F after posting a 13-0 win versus Turks and Caicos Islands at the TCIFA National Academy in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos,” CONCACAF said.

Chelcy Ralph (6’, 17’, 82’) tallied a hat trick, Karyn Forbes (33’, 45’), May Matouk (49’, 66’) and Raenah Campbell (72’, 86’) “each had braces, while Lauryn Hutchinson, Cecily Stoute, Liana Hinds and Maria-Frances Serrant all joined in on the scoresheet in the win,” CONCACAF said.

It said Mexico remained in first place in Group A thanks to an 11-0 win over Anguilla at the Raymond E. Guishard Stadium in The Valley, Anguilla.

Alicia Cervantes (3’, 9’, 56’) had a hat trick, Diana Ordonez (57’, 68’) and Katty Martinez (73’, 89’) “each had braces”, while Maricarmen Reyes (15’), Sandra Mayor (39’), Casandra Montero Rodriguez (52’) and Jimena Lopez (63’) added their names to the scoresheet for El Tricolor.

CONCACAF said Costa Rica got “a massive performance” from star FW Raquel Rodriguez, who scored a hat trick to power the Ticas to a 4-0 win against Curacao in Group B at the Stadion Rignaal Jean Francisa in Willemstad, Curacao.

Rodriguez scored her goals in the 22’, 28’ and 64’, while Priscila Chinchilla chipped in with a score in the 57’ to give Costa Rica a three-point advantage in the group standings, CONCACAF said.

It said first place Jamaica also enjoyed a high-scoring day in their 9-0 triumph over Cayman Islands in Group C at the Truman Bodden Stadium in George Town, Cayman Islands.

Star scorers Trudi Carter (7’, 16’, 17’) and Khadija Shaw (54’, 56’, 65’) each notched a hat trick for the Reggae Girlz, on top of a Tamoy Phillips own goal (12’) and scores from Jody Brown (14’) and Kayla McCoy (88’).

CONCACAF said Laurie Batista was “the hero on the day” for Panama with a hat trick to help her side march past Aruba 9-0 in Group D at the F.F.B Football Field in Belmopan, Belize.

Batista scored in the 8’, 19’ and 45’, in addition to a Marta Cox brace (44’, 64’) and goals from Karla Riley (30’), Kenia Rangel (34’), Erika Hernandez (55’) and Gabriela Leonards (68’), “keeping the Canaleras atop the group,” CONCACAF said.
