    Caribbean Club Championship: Group A Recap (Day 2)

    Action from the Caribbean Club Championship match between Greenbay Hoppers and Inter Moengotapoe (yellow jersey) in St. John's, Antigua & Barbuda, on February 24, 2017.

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda – Group A play in the 2017 Caribbean Club Championship continued on Friday at the Antigua Recreation Ground with Racing FC (Haiti) and Inter Moengotapoe (Suriname) posting wins, jumping over Greenbay Hoppers (Antigua & Barbuda) into first place.

    In the doubleheader’s opener, Racing scored all the goals in the first half to earn a 4-0 win over Bequia United (St. Vincent & the Grenadines). Estenio Laurent (9’), Bendy Charles (16’), Marckens Dorisca (25’) and Jackson Jean (41’ pen) struck for the Haitians, which hold a slight advantage over Inter Moengotapoe atop the table on goal difference (+4 to +2). Dorisca netted for the third time in two games.

    After a scoreless first half in the nightcap, Stefano Rijssel (47’) and Donnegy Fer (82’) scored before and Grennbay Hoppers’ Linval Wilson (66’) was ejected as Inter Moengotapoe came out on top, 2-0.

    The results set up an intriguing Sunday to close group play, with Inter Moengotapoe taking on already-eliminated Bequia United and Greenbay Hoppers meeting Racing FC.

    Only the winners of the five, first-round groups will advance to the final round, where they will join two-time defending champion Central FC (Trinidad & Tobago).

    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.
