    Second-round play in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup continued Saturday as Puerto Rico became the first team to secure a spot in the next round thanks to a second straight win.

    CONCACAF.com takes a look at the action from the Caribbean’s qualifying competition for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

    Group 1 … Hector Ramos (6’. 90’+25) netted two goals in a second straight game and Puerto Rico earned a 2-1 win over Antigua & Barbuda. With maximum points from two outings, the host sealed a spot in the third round. Dexter Blackstock (35’) equalized for Antigua & Barbuda, which hosts Grenada (0W-0D-1L, 0 points) in the group’s finale on June 7. The match at the Estadio Juan Ramon Loubriel in Bayamon was delayed by heavy rains.

    Group 2 … Guadeloupe bounced back from an opening loss to Martinique, edging Dominica, 2-1. Elbert Anatol gave the host a 1-0 in the 23rd minute, but Julian Wade levelled four minutes before halftime with his fourth goal of the competition. Gilles Dan (64’) struck for the game-winner.

    Group 3 … Guyana revived its hopes of progressing with a 7-0 win over the host US Virgin Islands. Trayon Bobb (23’, 74’), Ricky Bascombe (25’, 44’) and Anthony Abrams (68’, 87’) each struck for two goals. The Golden Jaguars lost to Curacao, 5-2, in their opener.

    Group 4 … Jonathan Faña Farias’ goal in the 27th minute lifted the Dominican Republic to a 1-0 win over host Bermuda. The Dominicans have not conceded a Caribbean Cup goal in 189 minutes.

    Group 5 … St. Vincent & the Grenadines, which is currently involved in the fourth round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, fell 2-1 at Suriname. The Vincentians took a 1-0 lead in the 71st minute through Myron Samuel, but the host stormed back on late goals by Mitchell Kisoor (85’) and Melvin Valies (90’+4).
