GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC):
Jamaica's young Reggae Girls bowed out of the inaugural CONCACAF Under-15 Girls' Championship in Grand Cayman on Wednesday evening.
The Jamaican girls were clipped 2-1 by Haiti in a quarter-final encounter.
Jody Brown's 29th-minute goal gave the Jamaicans a 1-0 lead, sending the large crowd of their supporters into a jubilant celebration.
After the break, the Haitians picked up the pace in attack and Lovelie Pierre equalised in the 47th minute.
Three minutes later, Nerilla Mondesir got behind the Jamaica defence to net the game-winner.
Trinidad and Tobago, Canada and Honduras have also qualified for today's semi-finals.
Trinidad defeated Bahamas 4-0, Honduras edged Cayman Islands 3-2 and Canada whipped Costa Rica 8-1.
The young Trinidadians prevailed by a comfortable margin, but were made to wait by the Bahamas until the 20th minute to get on the scoreboard thanks to an Alexis Fortune goal.
A pair of second-half strikes by Adanyo Phillip (39', 49') made it 3-0, while Raenah Campbell (52') added another as the Soca Princesses posted their third shutout in four games.
Canada got three goals from Anyssa Ibrahim in their big win.
Trinidad and Tobago will play Canada while Honduras take on Haiti in today's semi-finals.
