Football: Girls U15 nationals look to progress at CONCACAF Championships

 

Cayman’s Under-15 Girls national football squad continues to take shape as the 2018 CONCACAF Under-15 Championships approach starting 6th August at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

With the tournament taking place every other year, the squad welcomes both new players on the rise as well as veteran leaders. Cayman Islands Football Association (CIFA) Women’s Football chairman Shakeina Bush says the girls will look to advance against the region’s best once again.

“They started off in Group F where they were third, and have since bumped up to Group E. We are currently second in Group E and looking to move up to Group D.”

Grouped with Bahamas, Saint Lucia and Guyana, 15-year old Hannah Scott, who will be playing in her third and final championship says the team is ready to take another step in it’s development.

“In 2016, we won two games and lost one. Unfortunately, we didn’t go through. This year, I think we have a good chance of going through.”

One player to keep an eye on is 13-year old Molly Kehoe. After a win versus Bahamas and a loss to Saint Lucia in 2017, the Sunset Football Club standout says the team is prepared for two tough rematches.

“I hope we are going to beat Bahamas again and get revenge on Saint Lucia.”

Bush adds the four-day per week training sessions, three of which are scheduled in the morning before noon has given them an edge in conditioning in the lead up to the Florida based tournament.

“The competition is between 9:00 and 1:00 o’clock in the day, so conditioning is a big part of our training. Exposing the girls to those types of climates, and how tough it is in terms of their breathing and fighting through is important here.”
