    KINGSTON, Jamaica – Bonaire posted a narrow win over the U.S. Virgin Islands in Group 1, while French Guiana and Aruba were firing on all cylinders in Group 2, as preliminary round play in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup continued on a high-scoring Sunday.

    Here’s a recap of all action:

     GROUP 1 (at Lookout, Montserrat)

    At Blakes Estate Stadium, Bonaire made its debut in a CONCACAF-related competition a memorable one as it topped the U.S. Virgin Islands 2-1 on the strength of two early goals.

    After strikes from Yurick Seinpaal (5’) and Jozef Beaumont (11’) gave Bonaire the lead, MacDonald Talor (87’) halved the deficit with a late tally.

     The result sets up a Tuesday showdown between Bonaire and the host nation for a place in the first round, while USVI returns home after a pair of one-goal losses.

    GROUP 2 (at Oranjestad, Aruba)

    At the Complejo Deportivo Guillermo Prospero Trinidad, French Guiana won by the score of 6-0 for the second straight game, defeating the Turks & Caicos Islands.  Gabriel Pigree (29’, 48’, 90’) led the way with three goals, while Fabrice Awong (59’, 62’) netted a brace.  An own-goal by Kelly Louima (83’) accounted for French Guiana’s other tally.

     Aruba registered its largest-ever win in a FIFA “A” international, outracing the British Virgin Islands, 7-0.  Dwayn Raven (22’, 52’, 61’) scored three consecutive goals after Rensy Barradas (2’) and Annour Kock (20’) gave the host a 2-0 lead.  Jelano Cruden (85’) and Erick Santos (90’+2) struck late to close Aruba’s goal account.

    French Guiana and Aruba will square off on Tuesday with first-round berth at stake.  Though already eliminated from contention, the Turks & Caicos Islands and the British Virgin Islands will meet earlier that day.
