GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago missed out on today's final of the CONCACAF Girls Under-15 Cham-pionship when they lost to Canada in the semi-finals of the competition on Friday.

Playing in the penultimate phase of the inaugural tournament, the Trinidadians were edged out by a 16th-minute strike from midfielder Anyssa Ibrahim, as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat.

T&T will now seek solace in the third-place play-off today when they come up against Honduras, who went down 2-0 to Haiti in the other semi-final.

Trinidad had played unbeaten in the preliminary round to top Group B with seven points before trouncing The Bahamas 4-0 in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Haiti booked their spot in the final thanks to a brace from midfielder Nerilia Mondesir. She struck as early as the fourth minute to give the French Caribbean side a 1-0 lead at half-time and then found the nets again in the 70th minute, to seal the points.
