Jamaica Reggae Girlz Mauled By U.S. In Five-Nil Loss

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz proved to be no match for the rampant U.S. women’s soccer team in their Concacaf W Championship encounter recently.

The Girlz bid to qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup suffered a serious setback following a 5-0 loss to the U.S. team.

This loss comes on the back of an ambush win against the much-touted Mexican team on their home soil by the Reggae Girlz.

 The Jamaicans collars were up after that first group A matchup 1-0 win.

However, it was a different ball game against the top-ranked U.S. team.

In the encounter, the U.S. made it 1-nil in the fifth minute as Sophia Smith made no mistake in slotting home the first goal in the fifth minute of the start of the game.

Within three minutes of her first goal, the player spots another chance to make it 2-0.

Not long after, Rose Lavelle fired wide of Spencer after a 14-minute spell of resistance from the Jamaicans to make it 3-nil.

With the game petering out, substitute Paige Bailey-Gayle brought down Margaret Purce in the penalty area, and the Reggae Girlz suffered the consequence when Kristie Mewis scored by taking the shot in the 84th minute. 

Soon after, U.S. substitute Trinity Rodman created more misery for the Jamaicans by scoring the fifth goal two minutes later.

The win sees the U.S. taking full control of the group with 6 points in their second outing.
