The UNCAF U-20 Women Championship, a pre-qualifier for the CONCACAF Women U-20 in January 2014, opened for Belize on Wednesday, August 21, with our Belize U-20 Female National Team losing to host team Honduras by a respectable 2-1 margin. Gisel Baeza of Guinea Grass scored Belize’s only goal at the 50th minute.
FFB Executive Member Cruz Gamez reported from Honduras that:
“…It was a well-battled game that we lost due to lack of concentration (sic) an error. The girls played very well and we had more opportunities to score and win the game.
“They are still very motivated and hope to do well against Guatemala tomorrow.
“This is a very disciplined and talented group of girls that many people were impressed with, especially the goal keeper; she performed exceptionally well.”
On Friday, our girls play against Guatemala; and on Sunday they play El Salvador, both games being at 2:30 p.m. Belize time. Go, Belize!
