Jamaica’s senior women’s football team continued its impressive showing in Group B of the Caribbean Olympic Qualifying Stage by thrashing St Lucia 11-0 on Sunday night at the National Stadium in Kingston.

Captain Khadija Shaw and Deneisha Blackwood led the Reggae Girlz with three goals apiece.

Shaw handed the Reggae Girlz the lead in the second minute before completing her hattrick in the 16th and 34th minutes.

Blackwood found the back of the net in the 24th, 68th and 78th minutes.

Cheyna Matthews, Dominique Bond Flasza, Tiffany Cameron, Trudi Carter, and Tarania Clarke secured the other goals.

The victory represents the third straight for the Reggae Girlz in the five-team qualifying tournament being staged in Jamaica.

The three games have produced 30 goals for the Reggae Girlz ahead of their final game on Tuesday against the US Virgin Islands.

The Reggae Girlz opened their campaign with a 12-1 victory against Cuba on September 30 followed by a 7-0 triumph against Barbados on October 4.

When the first week of Concacaf Nations League Qualifying was completed, one of the most eye-catching results was Saint Lucia’s 3-0 triumph at Antigua and Barbuda. 

Using their speed and quickness, Saint Lucia broke out for three goals in the second half against the Benna Boyz to pocket the victory, setting the tone for a solid CNLQ campaign that ended with a 2W-1D-1L record. 

Leading the way for Saint Lucia was Jevick Mcfarlane, who scored in that win at Antigua and Barbuda before bagging a brace in the week four 3-2 victory over Aruba. 

Yet it was in defeat that best showed Saint Lucia’s emergence on the Concacaf scene, when they gave eventual 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup semifinalists Haiti everything that could handle in a narrow 2-1 defeat. 

But it is not just Macfarlane who strikes fear into the hearts of opposing defenses. Flying winger Pernel Williams will cause plenty of headaches, which is bad news for League B, Group B opponents El Salvador, Montserrat and the Dominican Republic. 

Saint Lucia’s Nations League journey begins with the toughest contest of them all: a trip to the always-difficult Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador to take on El Salvador. 

Yet after stunning Antigua and Barbuda in week one of the CNLQ, Saint Lucia will have the belief that they can pull off another eye-catching victory and rise that to a first-place finish in the group.
