Guyana women’s are the 2017 CAC Games qualifiers champions after beating Jamaica one nil in a nail biting encounter Sunday afternoon.
Both teams having already qualified for the CAC Games next year in Colombia, started the encounter cautiously creating no real opportunities in the first quarter. The tempo picked up in the second quarter as the team’s settled in the game.
La Tacia Chung dealt the telling blow to the Jamaican’s in the 48th minute sweeping home from close range from a penalty corner beating goalkeeper Lorie Ann McIntosh for the first time in the tournament.
The Jamaicans fought hard for the equaliser but it was not to be as the Guyanese stood tall in defence.
Both Jamaica and Guyana will now turn their attention to next year’s CAC Games.
