Jody Brown scored twice in the second and 11th minutes, while Lacey Murray and Chantelle Parker added to the scoreline in the second half.

Mara Rodriguez got the lone goal for El Salvador two minutes into first half stoppage time, converting from the penalty spot.

The young Reggae Girlz currently lead the group with four points after drawing with Guatemala 4-4 on Saturday.
