    Big Carib wins advance Guyana, St. Vincent

     

    GROS ISLET, St. Lucia - Guyana and St. Vincent & the Grenadines both earned one-sided victories Thursday to advance to the second round of the Caribbean Cup.

    Vurlon Mills scored twice in the first half to pace Guyana past St. Lucia 3-0, while Cornelius Stewart also had a pair of goals to lead St. Vincent over Curacao 4-0.

    The results left Guyana, St. Vincent and St. Lucia with six points each, but Guyana won Group 2 with St. Vincent in second based on goal difference in the matches between the three teams.

    Guyana will join host Grenada, Haiti and French Guyana in Group 6 November 14-18, while St. Vincent advanced to face Cuba, host Trinidad and Suriname in Group 8 on the same dates.

    Mills, who scored in the first minutes of Guyana's 2-1 win over Curacao on Tuesday, tallied in the 14th and 34th minutes to stake the Golden Jaguars to a 2-0 lead over St. Lucia. Gregory Richardson, who had a penalty against Curacao, added the finale in the 37th.

    In the nightcap of the doubleheader, Stewart put St. Vincent ahead in the eighth minute and then added his second in the 76th. The tallies gave Stewart five goals in as many games with the Vincy Heat.

    Dorren Hamlet also had a goal in the 58th and Myron Samuel added another in the 78th - his third in four games, to finish St. Vincent with a zero goal difference between the three group leaders, enough to edge out host St. Lucia, which finished with a minus-2.

    Two teams from each of the three second-round groups will advance to the Caribbean Cup finals in Antigua & Barbuda, with four teams eventually qualifying for next year's CONCACAF Gold Cup.
