Guyana’s fate to be decided in the Cuba/St Kitts game
Guyana’s Lady Jags gave up a 1-0 advantage against arch rivals Cuba as eth game ended when the two sides clashed yesterday in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Football Union (FCU) leg of the Olympic Qualifier.
Guyana found the back of the nets 12 minutes into the game compliments of their Captain Ashley Rodrigues but the Lady Jags could not keep the determined Cubans at bay. The Cubans who would have lost to the Guyanese in a home and away tie back in 2010 when Guyana qualified for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, rallied to score the neutralizing goal in the 34th minute.
Luck was not on the side of the Lady Jags when a Justine Rodrigues header came off the crossbar in the second half, a goal that could have given the Guyanese a much needed win.
It was Cuba’s first game of the tournament while Guyana wrapped up their stay on the Island after defeating St. Kitts and Nevis 8-0 in their opening Group 4 match on Friday last. The result means that Guyana’s fate of advancing will be decided when Cuba takes on St. Kitts and Nevis tomorrow.
Meanwhile, while the Guyanese ended unbeaten, Head Coach Mark Rodrigues said that they will be hoping that Cuba does not get past St. Kitts by more than eight goals.
