    Man of the Match:  Esteban Velasquez (Guatemala)

    Esteban Velasquez scored three and Guatemala defeated St. Lucia, 5-1.  The result left the Guatemalans (2-0-0, +9 GD), Belize (2-0-0, +3 GD) and Jamaica (2-0-1, +4 GD) with a share of first place in Group B on six points each.  Jamaica, however, has played one more game.  After topping Grenada 5-0 the evening before, Guatemala turned in an equally impressive performance against St. Lucia, which had conceded only three goals in its first two games.  Velasquez (5 goals) and Spross Cifuentes (3 goals) have combined to net eight of the Chapines’ 10 goals in the tournament.  Second-half substitute Ekiel Greenidge scored St. Lucia’s first goal after 194 minutes of play.  Guatemala next meets Belize on Sunday in an encounter that could be pivotal in determining the group winner.
