Port of Spain, Trinidad – After months of preparation and intense week of competition. The CFU’s Inaugural Women’s Caribbean Cup will kick off at 7:30 PM as Trinidad & Tobago will battle Jamaica at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Spectators could not ask for a better match as not only bragging rights are at stake but also national pride.
Home nation Trinidad & Tobago have strolled through their group matches, scoring 20 goals and are still yet to concede in the inaugural competition. Counterpart Jamaica has scored 15 goals in their run of group play but has conceded twice so far in the tournament.

The Reggea Girlz will look for inspiration from forwards Shakira Duncan and Donnakay Henry. Duncan has been deadly in front of goal as she leads her team in scoring after bagging 6 goals during group play, as Henry adds another 5 goals to the team’s tally.

The Soca Princesses will boast star forward Kenya “Yaya” Cordner, who recovered from injury, to help her team return to their high scoring ways versus Martinique. Soca Princess Tasha St. Louis will also be a threat for the Jamaicans as she currently leads the competition with 7 goals to her name.

The head coaches of both teams also gave their feelings on the final match.

Trinidad & Tobago head coach Randy Waldrum spoke about keeping his players focused for the finals.
“Obviously we’re going to have to be on our game against Jamaica as they are a good side, I’ve seen them a couple times during the tournament and their loaded with talent as well, so it should all make for a great final here for the fans,” stated Waldrum.

Jamaica’s head coach Merron Gordon spoke with great confidence about his team’s chance in the finals.
“I’m very happy with the girls performance so far in the competition, but I know we came here prepared for this cup and will work hard for it,” said Gordon.
The competitions’ 3rd place match between Haiti and Martinique will begin at 5:00pm and the finals of the Inaugural Women’s Caribbean Cup between Trinidad & Tobago & Jamaica will kick-off at 7:30pm.
