    Jamaica defeat Caymans, claim victory in Group B

    Richard West and Akeem Priestley scored goals in the second half to lead Jamaica to a 3:1 victory over hosts Cayman Islands, giving the young Reggae Boyz the title in Group B of Caribbean Zone qualifying in the FC Under-20 Junior Tournament.

    Sean Fraser opened the scoring for Jamaica in the 11th minute and though either team had the chance to score before the interval, the visitors carried their slim margin to the locker room.

    West added his goal just before the hour to bump the margin to 2:0 before Ariel Tatum pulled back a goal for the hosts in the 61st minute, only to see Priestley add an insurance goal 15 minutes from time.

    Jamaica now faces Haiti for a home-and-home series later this fall, with the winner advancing to Group B of the FC Final Qualifying Tournament in the USA.
