Breana Smith came off the substitutes’ bench to spark a rout at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva yesterday evening as Trinidad and Tobago romped to a 10-0 win over Grenada in their opening Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Girls Under-14 Challenge Series affair.
Trinidad and Tobago led 3-0 at the half after a double by Carissa Cowan and a solitary strike by Texas-based forward Nikita Jackson. However Smith, who represents Laventille FC, entered the game at the interval and plundered five items while Faith Alexander and Talia Martin also chipped in a goal apiece to reach double figures.
The young female Soca Warriors return to action on Sunday evening when they face Suriname from 7pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium. Grenada tackle Cuba from 5pm at the same venue. Admission is TT$25.
