    Cavaly defeats SV Britannia 5-0 to complete first-round, first-leg matches in Caribbean club championship

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Andy Amy and Jean Alex Millen scored a pair of goals each to lead Cavaly FC to a 5-0 victory over SV Britannia in the first leg of the first round of the Caribbean Club Champions Cup.

    Cavaly's victory completed the first leg and made it the only home team to win its home match.

    Suriname's Inter Moengo Tapoe and Trinidad's W Connection both won away, and Haiti's Tempete FC Antigua's Greenbay Hoppers managed draws.

    Fitzgerald Alliance gave Cavaly the lead in the 18th minute before Amy scored the first of his two 10 minutes later. Amy added another just before halftime and Millen, who entered the game in the 43rd minute, tacked on his pair eight minutes apart late the second half.

    On Saturday, Kelly Frederick scored a pair of second-half goals to help rally the Hoppers to a 3-3 draw at Sevilla FC of Puerto Rico. Frederick's second goal in the 74th minute pulled the Hoppers within 3-2 and George Dublin equalized with a goal in the 90th.

    Also on Saturday, Kelvin McKenzie's own-goal in the 71st gave Haiti's Tempete FC a 1-1 draw at Guyana's Alpha United.

    The second legs will begin Wednesday Inter hosting CSD Barber of the Netherlands Antilles and W Connection at home against Bath Estate of Dominica.

    The Hoppers have their home match against Sevilla FC of Puerto Rico on Saturday, as does Tempete against Alpha United of Guyana. The first round will finish with the second leg between Britannia and Cavaly on Sunday in Piedra Plat, Aruba.

    The first-round winners advance along with San Juan Jabloteh of Trinidad to a second two-leg stage in mid April. Those winners qualify for the single-game semifinals May 15 in Trinidad along with the Puerto Rico Islanders. The final and third-place match are set for Trinidad on May 17 with three teams qualifying for next season's CONCACAF Champions League.
