    Caribbean Club Championship: Group E Recap (Day 2)

    Guyana international Vurlon Mills (green jersey) scored one goal in San Juan Jabloteh's win over CS Moulien in the Caribbean Club Championship on March 10, 2017, in Kingstown, St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

    KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent & the Grenadines – Trinidad & Tobago’s San Juan Jabloteh edged closer to a berth in the 2017 Caribbean Club Championship finals thanks to a 4-1 win over CS Moulien in first-round play on Friday.

    Here are the Group E highlights from Victoria Park:

    San Juan Jabloteh 4, CS Moulien 1

    - Minnji Gomez (13’) gave CS Moulien a 1-0 lead, but first-place San Juan Jabloteh exploded for four unanswered goals in a 4-1 win, improving to 2W-0D-0L.

    - Guyana international Vurlon Mills (17’) leveled at 1-1, before Panamanian Jairo Lombardo Escobar (20’, 68’) struck twice to put the Trinidadian side ahead 3-1.  Trinidad & Tobago international Nathan Lewis (85’) completed the scoreline with five minutes remaining in normal time.

    - San Juan Jabloteh played the last 20 minutes down a man after Damian Williams’ ejection.

    System 3 (St. Vincent & the Grenadines) 9, Flames United (Sint Maarten) 2

    - Azinho Solomon (5’, 62’, 71’) and Myron Samuel (45’; 45’+1, 54’) scored three goals each as System 3 bounced back from an opening loss to CS Moulien to earn a 9-2 win over Flames United

    - Flames United was eliminated from contention after opening with a pair of losses, conceded nine goals in both.

    San Juan Jabloteh needs only a draw on Sunday against System 3 to progress to the finals, which already consists of two-time defending champion Central FC (Trinidad & Tobago), Group A champion Racing FC (Haiti), Group B champion Cibao FC (Dominican Republic) and Group C champion Grenades FC (Antigua & Barbuda).

    The champion of the Caribbean Club Championship qualifies for 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 for Caribbean and Central American teams, which kicks off in August.

    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.
