    Martinique, Suriname wins open Carib Cup

    LE LAMENTIN, Martinique -- Kevin Parsemain scored six goals to pace Martinique over the British Virgin Islands 16-0, and Suriname defeated Monsterrat 7-1 Wednesday night to open the CFU Caribbean Cup.

    Stephane Abaul and Jordy Delem also had a pair of goals for Martinique, which jumped ahead on Delem's first in the sixth minute and scored nine times in the second half - five in the last 11 minutes.

    Gerald Dondon, Steve Gustan, Jacky Berdix, Djenhael, Gaetan Sidney and Alex Balmy had single strikes for Martinique.

    The British Virgin Islands, which was beaten 17-0 by the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Cup two years ago, played the final 52 minutes with only 10 men after Jevone Demming was ejected for a deliberate handball.

    In the first game of the doubleheader before a crowd of 800 at Stade Georges-Gratiant, Giovanni Waal scored the first of his two in the third minute and Stefano Rijssel added a pair in the final five minutes to lead Suriname over Montserrat.

    Waal scored his second in the 11th minute and Romano Sordam added another in the 16th to put Suriname in control 3-0 by the 16th minute.

    Jurmen Vallei and Giovanni Drenthe also had goals for the "Suriboys".

    Group 3 will resume on Friday with the British Virgin Islands facing Suriname and Martinique opposing Montserrat, with the first-round group finishing on Sunday.

    The top two teams from Group 3 will advance to the second round.
