Dating back to late May, Columbia women’s soccer rising senior Phoenetia Browne competed in the inaugural Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Women’s Caribbean Cup representing her native country of St. Kitts & Nevis. The Women’s Caribbean Cup serves as the Caribbean Zone’s qualifying tournament for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, with 17 counties represented.

From May 23-27, St. Kitts & Nevis competed against three teams in Group 3 looking to advance as one of the five bracket winners to earn a spot in the finals in August. In the opener on May 23, Browne netted a hat-trick to propel St. Kitts & Nevis past the Cayman Islands, 5-0.

The midfielder emerged as one of the team’s offensive leaders as she followed-up her three-goal performance with another two goals in the next match on May 25. Her two goals propelled a 4-0 victory over Turks & Caicos.

On May 27, St. Kitts & Nevis took on Bermuda for a chance to advance as the bracket winner. Bermuda jumped out to an early lead and never looked back to hand St. Kitts & Nevis a 4-1 defeat. Despite the loss, Browne netted the only goal for the team for her sixth-goal in three games. With the win, Bermuda tallied seven points in the bracket to edge St. Kitts & Nevis six points as the bracket winner.
