The Sugar Girlz have pulled off a remarkable upset topping Group A of the Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualification in Trinidad and Tobago. The Women’s national team trounced Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesday 10-1 in the final qualification match in Trinidad and Tobago, which was enough to take them ahead of all other teams in the group. This huge victory followed a 4-1 victory over the home team Trinidad and Tobago, sending shockwaves across the region. Now topping the group, the Sugar Girls are one step closer to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualification.

“We are really exceptionally proud of how the girls played. They represented their country with pride. They finished strong, which was what we talked about all (Monday) and in our pre-game (talk). That was our focus: finish strong, get the job done and put ourselves in a position to qualify,” Coach Jene said this success will do a lot for football in St. Kitts and Nevis.
