TORONTO — Bev Priestman's still feeling the effects of a loud and boisterous crowd on her voice after Canada's 2-0 victory in Jamaica on Friday. She's hoping her throat will be even more sore after Canada hosts Jamaica on Tuesday in the second leg of their playoff to determine the final CONCACAF entry for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Priestman, Canada's head coach, said her voice was still gravelly from shouting over the din in Kingston, Jamaica, as the 10th-ranked Canadians beat No. 37 Jamaica. "I
