Day Two - Long days ahead for the Players

While the Pan-American region was either sleeping or having their first cup of coffee, the Trinidad & Tobago and Dominican Republic teams were on the hockey field warming up an hour before their 7:30am match. The "Trini" ladies bounced back from their 8-0 defeat against Argentina, by overrunning the Dominicans 8-0. Trinidad & Tobago's Kristin Thompson registered her first hattrick of her international hockey career.

In the following game, the South American giants of hockey did not disappoint the spectators as they displayed excellent one-on-one skills, good teamwork and the physical fitness to execute at full speed. At the end of the match it was the Argentines, who confirmed that they are the defending champs with a 4-0 victory over their neighbor, Chile.

During the closely contested match between Mexico and Jamaica, Mexico displayed a high level on ball control, while the Jamaican's tenacity and never give up attitude made it a memorable match. Jamaica's captain, Shakeela Elliott, lead her team by being instrumental in all attacking and defensive plays. It was unfortunate for the Jamaicans, when in the 62nd minute of the game; a penalty stroke was awarded, after a dangerous tackle in the penalty circle. Jamaica went down to Mexico 2-0.

The USA continues to show that discipline for structure will reap the benefits, as they defeated Barbados 6-0. The Bajan ladies were not a walk-over, as they challenged the Americans throughout the encounter.

In the game that followed, Canadian's central defender, Jessica Denys, executed their penalty corners by using the drag flick, a skill normally seen on the senior level. Denys scored a beavertrick to give her team an 8-0 victory over the Bermudians.

In the last game of the day, Puerto Rico had little possession against Uruguay but made a good attempt at playing a passing game. However, Uruguay dominated play and defeated their host 7-0.

Look out for more reports on day three of the 5th Pan American Junior Championships.
