It was a day of mismatches on the fourth day of the 5th Women’s Pan American Junior Championship in Puerto Rico, as Argentina, Chile, USA and Canada solidified their positions at the head of each pool in the race for a Junior World Cup qualifying spot.

In the opening match of the day, Barbados trounced Puerto Rico 11-0.  Barbados’ impressive players Joanna Davis and Cher King both notched hat tricks showcasing Barbados as a force in the Caribbean. The game that followed was also a high scoring game, when the USA beat Bermuda 9-0 in another consistent performance by the Americans.  Captain Rachel Dawson scored the opening and closing goals to lead her team to a comfortable victory over Bermuda.

Canada sealed second position in Pool A by edging Uruguay 1-0. Canada controlled most of the match and was rewarded after effective passes and control, which led to a spectacular shot by Karen Mann in the 39th min.

This was followed by another mismatch; Chile outplayed Dominican Republic to record a dominant 16-0 victory. Camila Infante registered six goals along with captain Carolina Garia’s hat trick to put Chile in second spot in Pool A with a better goal difference than Mexico.

Argentina got the chance to increase their goal difference and they did so by defeating Jamaica 12–0.  Ines Garmendia moved from third place to number one on the top scorers’ list with 10 goals after netting a hat trick. Her teammate Maria Silvina D’Elia is tied with Chilean captain Carolina Gracia for second place with eight goals. Three Argentines occupy the top five positions for the tournament's leading scorers.

In the final match of the day, Mexico managed a 2-0 victory over Trinidad & Tobago. Goalkeeper Jesus Castillo who played in the field for this game, executed a flick in the 61st minute after the straight shot was saved from the penalty corner. This dampened the spirit of the “Trini” ladies, who are now fifth in Pool A.
