Cuba Falls Against Dominican and Ends Fourth in Women's Soccer

Oct 28, -- The Cuba's women soccer team, U-20 years old, fell 2 goals to 1 against its Dominican counterpart and finished in 4th place of the Caribbean qualifying phase, which was held in Kingston, Jamaica.

The Caribbeans, led by coach Jose Luis Elejalde, ended their participation in the tournament with 2 wins and 3 losses and failed to reach 1 of the 2 tickets to the FIBA Americas Championship, to be played in January 2014 in Cayman Islands.

Yoana Calderón was the best Cuban player to finish as top scorer with 9 goals, while Karenia Núñez highlighted by the winners.

In the first place, Jamaica beat 1-0 to Trinidad and Tobago; thus, both teams will go to world-qualifying top in Cayman Islands.
