Dominican Republic beat Lady Jags to book Gold Cup spot

Guyana’s Lady Jags went down 0-1 to the Dominican Republic and missed out on qualifying for the Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup group stage.

Kathrynn González’s goal in the 55th was the difference between the two sides in a must-win encounter at the Dignity Health Sports Park Track and Field Stadium in Los Angeles.

From the onset, it was not a straightforward task against the Dominican Republic, a team known for their robust defence, but the Lady Jags had their chances but could not convert.

Dominican Republic has advanced to Group A alongside the United States, Mexico and Argentina.

The Group Stage will feature twelve (12) national teams between February 20-28 across several venues – Dignity Health Sports Park, Snapdragon Stadium, and Shell Energy Stadium – all located in the United States.

After the round-robin phase, group winners, runners-up, and the two most successful third-place finishers will secure spots in the quarterfinals.

Subsequently, the semifinals and the final will occur at the Snapdragon Stadium on March 6 and 10, respectively.
