    GROUP C

    Anguilla 1, Belize 1

    Anguilla (1 point) and Belize (1 point), a pair of previously eliminated sides, produced their best performances of the tournament in a match that ended 1-1 at the T.E McField Sports Centre.

    Belize opened the scoring early through Vailene Lambert (7’) and the lead lasted until four minutes before the break, when Lanecia Judifah (31’) leveled for the Anguillans.

    Both teams pushed for a second-half winner, but a share of the points proved to be the return from an entertaining encounter.

    Jamaica 0, Costa Rica 0

    Playing in front nearly 1,800 fans at the T.E McField Sports Centre, Jamaica (7 points) and Costa Rica (7 points) battled to a keenly contested scoreless draw.

    With that result, both teams finished in a tie for first-place with neither conceding a goal in three games.  The Jamaicans, however, took the top spot on goal difference (+14 to +12).

    GROUP D

    Cuba 1, Puerto Rico 1

    Cuba (1 point) erased a deficit to draw 1-1 with Puerto Rico (1 point) at the Cayman Brac Sports Field.

    Team captain Yomaries Santiago (6’) netted Puerto Rico’s first and only goal of the tournament in the early going.

    In an effort to force a share of the points, though, Nahomi Aguilar (57’) scored a second-half equalizer for Cuba.

    Haiti 1, Canada 1

    A highly anticipated nightcap at the Cayman Brac Sports Field saw Canada (7 points) and Haiti (7 points) play to a thrilling 1-1 stalemate.

    The Canadians opened the scoring thanks to Lauren Raimondo’s (14’) third goal of the tournament.

    Haiti replied swiftly, though, as Nerilia Mondesir (15’) evened the score just one minute later.

    Though the sides finished in a tie for first place, Canada secured the top spot on goal difference (+11 to +3).
