Khadija Shaw and Kayla McCoy each scored a brace to help Jamaica end their 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship on a high note with a 7-0 win over Saint Kitts and Nevis on Tuesday night at HEB Park in Edinburg, Texas.
For Jamaica, it was a historic night as they earned their first ever CWOQ victory.
Shaw’s thumping header in the 38’ got Jamaica going with a 1-0 lead, and two minutes later the lead was doubled, 2-0, with a right-footed finish from Tiffany Cameron.
Havana Solaun increased it to 3-0 in the 51’ when she slipped in a free kick, before Shaw had her second with a right-footed strike for a 4-0 lead in the 57’.
Trudi Carter’s penalty conversion in the 68’ extended the lead to 6-0, followed by McCoy’s first in the 70’ to make it 7-0.
Saint Kitts and Nevis GK Quinn Josiah was also providing some highlights, including a stop from a Shaw attempt on goal from point-blank range.
McCoy would then complete the evening with the seventh and final goal in the 85’ to seal the three points for the Reggae Girlz.
