    Caribbean Club Championship: Group A Recap (Day 1)

    Action from the Caribbean Club Championship match between Racing FC and Inter Moengotapoe (white jersey) in St. John's, Antigua & Barbuda, on February 22, 2017.

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda – The 2017 Caribbean Club Championship kicked off Wednesday with a Group A doubleheader at the Antigua Recreation Ground.

    Host Greenbay Hoppers (Antigua & Barbuda) topped the table at the end of the evening on the strength of a 2-1 win over Bequia United (St. Vincent & the Grenadines) in the nightcap. An own-goal in the 70th minute by Kamol Bess snapped a 1-1 stalemate, giving the Antiguans all three points. Tomorley Thomas put Greenbay ahead 1-0 in the early stages of the first half, but Kamal Ollivierre leveled 15 minutes later.

    In the opener, Racing FC (Haiti) and Inter Moengotapoe (Suriname) played to a 2-2 draw. Racing rallied after falling behind twice. Kareem Kwasie (9’) and Naldo Kwasie (68’) gave Inter leads of 1-0 and 2-1, respectively. The Haitians got a pair of goals from Marckens Dorisca (17’, 81’).

    Last year, Central FC defended its Caribbean title by prevailing over fellow Trinidadian side DirecTV W Connection in the final for the second straight year, 3-0.

    The champion of the Caribbean Club Championship earns a place in the newly re-formatted CONCACAF Champions League, while the second, third and fourth-placed clubs will participate in the Confederation’s newly launched club championship tournament for Caribbean and Central American teams, which kicks off in August.
