BELIZE CITY, Wed.

In regulation, both SCA goals were by Aaliyah Herbert (8’ & 37’), while Mary Davis (16’ & 25’) also got both goals for Rising Stars.  The score remained the same in overtime, and in the ensuing penalty shootout, Saudy Rivera and Aaliyah Herbert shook the net for SCA, while only Lorraine Stephens converted for Rising Stars.
