    T&T shock Suriname 4:0 to advance to Caribbean Zone final tournament

    Needing at least a three-goal victory to advance to the final round of FC Under-20 Caribbean Zone qualifying, Trinidad & Tobago responded with 4:0 victory over hosts Suriname on the final match day to win Group A in Paramaribo.

    In the afternoon's first game, Barbados strung together three goals in the game's final 16 minutes to break open a deadlock and defeat Netherlands Antilles 4:1 to capture third place in the group on goal difference.

    Dave Taylor opened the scoring for Barbados in the 17th minute before Leroy Kleinmoedig's third goal of the tournament drew Netherlands Antilles even in the 52nd. Dwayne Griffith's 74th minute strike broke the tie before Jason Baxhill scored a minute later to extended the lead, Michael Young adding an 88th minute marker to close out the scoring.

    Meanwhile, T&T controlled the pace of the nightcap throughout, eventually taking the lead just before the half hour on a goal from Terrence McAllistar. Osei Telesford delivered a left side corner for McAllistar who rose above the defenders to head home.

    The visitors maintained the slimmest of margins heading into the interval, and still pressing forward, were able to expand it in the opening minutes of the second half. Devon Jorsling, a first-half substitute, got things started with a strike in the 52nd minute, meeting a through ball from Odelle Armstrong at the edge of the box before clinically hitting home from 17 yards away.

    Fifteen minutes later, Trinidad & Tobago made use of the same combination as Jorsling notched his second tally of the match. The final marker came seven minutes from time from Armstrong when he met a left side cross by substitute Andre Pacheco, before burying past the keeper and giving the Soca Warriors the goal that assured their advance.
