Jamaica’s 18-member Women’s Under-20 team is scheduled to arrive in the country tomorrow after qualifying for the second round of the Caribbean Football Union, CFU, Women’s Under-20 World Cup qualifier.

The young Reggae Girls picked up group honours yesterday when they mauled home team Dominica 11-1 at Windsor Park Stadium.

Jamaica, 5-0 winners over the Turks and Caicos in their opening Group ‘A’ match on Wednesday, led 4-nil at halftime and netted another seven goals after the break to claim a lopsided victory and maximum six points at the end of the three-team play-offs.

The series is a preliminary qualifier for the CONCACAF Finals and the FIFA Women\'s Under-20 World Cup next year.

Peashian Thomas, Trudi Carter and Sashana Campbell scored two goals each for the Jamaicans, who got their other goals from Vanessa Ramsay, Davia Smith, Tasheka Small, Shushana Dobson and a Dominican own goal.

Jamaican and Group C winners Cuba are the early teams through to the CFU Finals.

Other group matches are being decided in Suriname, US Virgin Islands and Trinidad and Tobago.

All group winners will advance to the CFU Final Series from where the top teams will progress to the CONCACAF Finals.
