Haiti claims second-round berth in WGC qualifying

Thursday, April 1. SAN CRISTOBAL, Dominican Republic – Wisline Dolce scored with six minutes remaining, her second goal in as many games, to give Haiti a 2-1 victory over the Dominican Republic on Tuesday, earning the beleaguered nation a berth in the second round of the Caribbean's Women's Gold Cup qualifying.

The goal by Dolce, who also had one in a 5-0 victory over the Turks and Caicos Islands on Sunday, finished Haiti atop Group D with six points. The Dominican Republic, which also beat the Turks and Caicos3-1 on Friday, finished second with three points.

Haiti joins Guyana, Puerto Rico and St. Lucia, which also won their groups, in the second round, to be contested in two groups of four teams (in Cuba, May 10, 12 and 14).

The second-round group winners will qualify for the Women's Gold Cup in late October-early November while the group winners, best runner-up and host Puerto Rico will qualify for the Central American and Caribbean Games in July.
