TAKING THEM ON: T&T's Kennya Cordner, left, blows past an opponent in the Norwegian league.

Trinidad and Tobago footballer Kennya “Ya Ya” Cordner continues to thrive in Norway where she has scored her third goal of the season since the restart of the Toppserien, the top division in the country’s women’s football league. The T&T international netted for her club, Sandviken, in a 3-1 away win over Avaldsnes on Sunday last.

The Tobago-born Cordner, 31, has scored three goals in five matches played this season. Two of them came last month in a 1-1 draw with Lyn and a 3-2 home victory over second-placed Vålerenga.

Cordner is in her third season in Norway. She scored 18 goals in her debut season in 2018 and followed up by winning the Golden Boot in 2019 with 22 goals. Her latest strike came in the 78th minute with her team having already rallied to earn a 2-1 half-time lead after having fallen behind early in the contest.

Sandviken are now fourth on the 10-team table and Avaldsnes are fifth. Cordner will be back in action today for a top-four clash in which Sandviken will come up against third-placed Rosenborg, one of the traditionally big teams in the competition.
