Kayla strikes again and “Yaya” nets double as T&T qualify for Concacaf with 3-0 win over Bermuda

The Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Senior Team finished their 2018 Caribbean Championship campaign on a winning note this evening, as they shot down Bermuda 3-0 at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

The result assured the Women’s Soca Warriors of a place in next month’s Concacaf Championship in the United States, alongside Jamaica and Cuba. The top three nations at Concacaf level qualify automatically for the France 2019 World Cup while the fourth placed team will face a FIFA Play Off against South America’s third placed outfit.

Trinidad and Tobago tasted their first defeat of the qualifying series on Friday when they were whipped 4-1 by Jamaica. But there was never any chance of a repeat of that disaster today.

Nippy forward Kayla Taylor continued her impressive scoring record, as she put the Warriors ahead in the 12th minute. It was her eighth goal of the competition and meant that the US-based player had scored in every match in Jamaica.

And Kennya “Yaya” Cordner made sure of the three points with a second half double, including a beautiful solo effort in the 87th minute.

Jamaica dethroned Trinidad and Tobago as regional champions this evening though, As they preserved their 100 per cent record with a 6-1 win against Cuba in Kingston.
