    Canada tops Trinidad in U-17 opener

    LA CHORRERA, Panama - Canada commenced its 2013 CONCACAF Under-17 Championship campaign Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Trinidad & Tobago at the Estadio Agustin "Muquita" Sanchez.

    The triumph took the North American side atop the three-team Group B table with three points, while the young Soca Warriors must get a win or a draw in its match against Costa Rica on Monday to remain in contention for a quarterfinal place.

    Canada had the better of the initial exchanges, coming close to scoring an early goal on multiple occasions. Jordan Hamilton shot high in the 13th minute and Marco Bustos went wide five minutes later.

    Just as Trinidad started to creep back into the match, Marco Dominguez-Ramirez netted the game's first goal in the 42nd minute, firing in from 18-yards out off a cleverly taken free kick by Bustos.

    After the interval, Canada remained on the offensive and was rewarded with a second goal in the 59th minute.

    Hamilton dribbled into the right side of the Trinidad box and attempted to chip goalkeeper Johan Welch. The shot was blocked, but the rebound went to Hamilton, who slotted home from close range.

    Canada, which lost 3-0 after extra time to the United States in the competition's 2011 final, will face Costa Rica in its last group match on Wednesday.
