Mexico get on top of the table in El Salvador

USA seize their first international win in history to keep World Beach Games hopes alive


Mexico grasp new win to target World Beach Games ticket

The Mexican Women's National side keep looking as one of the main favourites to seal the ticket to the World beach Games, as they confirmed again today with a new solid win. The Azteca edged Bahamas with braces from Leyva, Carrillo and Pérez are are just one win away to seal the qualification for Qatar. 

Despite Bahamas made things difficult during the first leg, with Shagerra Edgecombe's responding Fatima Leyva's missiles on two occasions in those first minutes, the Azteca took the reins of the game in the second period, with a 3-0 run that left things fairly unbalanced already. 

Karla Pérez, would add two more to the Mexican advantage to seal three more points that have Mexico on top of the table, with six points. One more win tomorrow, against hosts El Salvador, will see La Tri accompanying their male counterparts to the World Beach Games this coming October. The Bahamas, in turn, have no options to qualify.  

Goals: 1-0: Leyva, min. 9(1); 1-1: Edgecombe, min. 9(1); 1-2: Edgecombe, min. 4(1); 2-2: Leyva, min. 3(1); 3-2: Carrillo, min. 11(2); 4-2: Esli Sánchez, min. 4(2); 5-2: Carrillo, min. 2(2); 6-2: Pérez, min. 6 (3); 7-2: Pérez, min. 0(3);   

 

The USA Women's National Team clinch historic win

It only took two games to the USA Women's National Beach Soccer Team to land the first win in their history. And they did it in a pretty brilliant fashion, prevailing over hosts El Salvador in a game with up to fifteen goals. 

The hosts were better than USA during the first period of the game, in which Fátima and Marisa swept El Salvador 2-0 ahead and Carolina made it 3-1 after Witteman's first goal. Two goals by Leslie would equalize the game, but Marisa, from the penalty kick spot, let the cuscatlecas reach the first break 4-3 ahead.

A 3-0 run in the second period changed things drastically, and got the Stars and Stripes 4-6 ahead, thanks to the efforts by Wharton (2) and Sunseri-Warp. 

USA would not stop there, and would widen the gap in an efficiently played last period, sealing a consistent win that gets Eddie Soto's side the hopes to qualify for the World Beach Games back. It is not entirely in their hands, though, as they need to beat Bahamas tomorrow and wait for an eventual victory by El Salvador over Mexico. 

Goals: 1-0: Fátima, min. 10(1); 2-0: Marisa, min. 8(1); 2-1: Witteman, min. 4(1); 3-1: Carolina, min. 3(1); 3-2: Leslie, min. 3(1); 3-3: Leslie, min. 3 (1); 4-3: Marisa, min. 3 (1); 4-4: Wharton, min. 10(2); 4-5: Wharton, min. 5 (2); 4-6: Sunseri-Warp, min. 1(2); 4-7: Fitzgerald, min. 5(3); 5-7: Marisa, min. 2(3); 5-8: Witteman, min. 2 (3); 5-9: Witteman, min. 1(3); 6-9: Wharton (og), min. 0(3)
