Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : August 22nd 2014 Contents HAMILTON---American Jim Furyk will
face this season's Major winners Rory
McIlroy, Bubba Watson and Martin
Kaymer as the elite foursome that will
play for the pink jacket in the PGA
Grand Slam of Golf at Port Royal in
October, officials have announced.
Australia's Adam Scott, the
defending Grand Slam winner, received
the initial invitation to complete the
foursome following McIlroy's one-shot
victory in the PGA Championship, his
second major of the year after taking
the British Open, but was unable to
accept due to a scheduling conflict.
Watson, an American, won the
Masters in April, while Germany's
Kaymer took the United Staes Open
before World No.1 McIlroy, from
Northern Ireland, won the two final
Majors of the year.
Furyk, the 2003 US Open champion,
was the leader on this year's Major
Champions Points List. CMC

from as many Group B matches in the
inaugural Caribbean Football Union
Women s Cup, and a spot at the Con-
cacaf Women s finals, when they meet
Antigua & Barbuda from 7.15 tonight
at the Hasely Crawford Stadium,
Two hours earlier, Martinique will
also have a chance to book a spot in
the Concacaf tournament carded for
the USA from October 16 to 26 when
it faces St Kitts/Nevis from 5 pm.
On Wednesday night, when Group
B kicked off at Mucurapo with a dou-
ble-header as well, Martinique blanked
Antigua & Barbuda thanks to a double
from Prisca Carin, in the 12th and 65th
while T&T hammered St Kitts/Nevis
Leading the way for the Soca
Princesses was veteran striker Tasha
St Louis with a first-half hat-trick while
Seattle Sounders foward Kennya "Yaya"
Cordner and Janine Francois added two

Mariah Shade and Dernelle Mascall,

It did not take long for the Soca
Princesses to add to their tally and in
the sixth minute Lauryn Hutchinson
of Richmond United in the USA put
the speedy Cordner through down the
left flank and she squared to the
onrushing St Louis to guide in her first
and the team's second.
A minute later, Cordner extended
the advantage to 3-0 as she gathered
a loose ball from a St Louis run at goal
and fired a left-foot shot past two
defenders and Mc Koy.
The goal rush now seemed on as St
Louis was then upended in the oppo-
nents' 18-yard box by defender Rozel
Liburd. She easily slotted in from the
penalty-spot for a 4-0 lead in the tenth
It was then the turn of Attin-Johnson
to get her name among the scorers two
minutes later for a 5-0 cushion.
At the other end of the field, Caroline
Springer finally got St Kitts/Nevis' first
attempt on goal a minute later, from a
free-kick, which proved no trouble for
goalkeeper Kimika Forbes of Boston
St Louis then completed her first-
half hat-trick in the 22nd.
With a comfortable 6-0 advantage,
the Soca Princesses began to toy with
their opponents, before former youth
team captain Mariah Shade rifled home
a left footer for a 7-0 lead at the break.
In the second half T&T got goals
from midfielder Francois in the 54th
minute, Francois got another in the
58th minute for and substitute Dernelle
Mascall in 68th.
Speaking after the win, Attin-John-
son was satisfied with the outcome,
but at the sametime not entirely pleased
with the overall display.
She added, "We talked about scoring
a lot of goals which we did, but I believe
we lost our focus by doing that and
did not stick to our game plan."
"We knew coming into this tourna-
ment that we were better than these
teams, and our main focus was to play
better football as a team in terms of
ball possession and tactical awareness
as we look ahead to next phase of the
competition. This is a stepping stone
for us and while we still want to score
goals, we have to play much better col-
lectively and maintain our focus."
Last night, Group A continued at
the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva with
Jamaica and Haiti hunting their second
win from as many matches to cement
a spot in the Concacaf Final round
ahead of their potential group decider
on Sunday and the final and third place
playoffs at the Hasely Crawford Sta-
dium, Mucurapo, on Tuesday.
