Young Reggae Girls ready for CONCACAF Championships

Jamaica’s National Under-20 Women Football team last night concluded the USA leg of their preparation for the CONCACAF Championships in the Cayman Islands on a winning note.

This as the Young Reggae Girls defeated the West Pines Invitational 11 by 1 goal to nil in their practice match at the West Pines Soccer Club Field in Fort Lauderdale.

Kayla Gray scored the lone goal of the match in the 89th minute of play to give the dominant Jamaican team the victory.

The win comes two days after the team was held to a 1-all draw by the Magic Jacks side and Technical Coordinator of the National Women Teams Vin Blaine was happy with the way the girls controlled the game but was again disappointed they did not score more goals.


Blaine also had high praises for the Jamaica International Female Football Development (JIFFD) which sponsored the weeklong training camp hinting that it was his best camp ever. He did say however that he wished it was two weeks instead of one so he could play another three games which would be perfect for the team.
