Breana and Talia star as T&T U-14 Girls down Suriname 3-0 in CFU Challenge Series

The Trinidad and Tobago Girls National Under-14 Team made it two wins from as many outings yesterday evening in Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Girls Under-14 Challenge Series action, as they downed Suriname 3-0 at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.

Breana Smith, who managed five goals as a substitute last Friday in a 10-0 rout of Grenada, opened the score summary yesterday as she pounced on an error by an opposing central defender in the 21st minute and sprinted half the field before slotting home.

Women Soca Warriors fans, who came out on Divali night to support their team, had to wait until the second half to extend their advantage and their remaining items came from set pieces.

First, the Suriname defence failed to cut out a lofted free kick by Twinkle Thomas in the 46th minute and Talia Martin was on spot to lash into the corner. And, three minutes later, Martin won a penalty kick that Gamie Waldron rifled in off the underside of the bar to seal the result.

The Under-14 Girls, who are coached by Marlon Charles, close off their campaign on Tuesday when they face Cuba from 7pm in the second game of a Couva double header.
