    Trinidad qualifies for U-17 Championship

    PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad - Brendon Creed scored his third goal in three games and helped Trinidad & Tobago to a 2-0 victory over Guyana on Saturday, sending it to the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship.

    Although originally announced that the Caribbean would play a six-team final round of qualifying to determine its five berths, the Caribbean Football Union late Saturday decided that the five first-round group winners would qualify for the CONCACAF finals -- foregoing the need for second round.

    Trinidad finished atop first-round Group 4 with nine points, three better than Suriname, to join Jamaica, Cuba and Haiti which already have won their groups and secured berths in the 12-team CONCACAF championship April 6-19 in Panama.

    Only the Group 5 winner was undecided. Group 5, which was reduced to three teams when Grenada withdrew, was to begin Sunday with St. Kitts & Nevis facing the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Creed scored twice in Trinidad's 23-0 victory over the British Virgin Islands in its opening match on Tuesday. Brent Sam scored seven and Jabari Mitchell had four against BVI.

    Mitchell scored another in Trinidad's 3-1 win over Suriname on Thursday.

    Guyana finished third in the group with three points ahead of BVI, which lost all three of its games by a combined 54-0.
