    Before a standing-room-only crowd, Bermuda won a battle of undefeated teams, topping the host Cayman Islands, 3-0, to join Aruba at the summit of the Group A table.  Just when it appeared the first-half would end knotted at 0-0, Oneko Lowe put the Bermudians ahead one minute into stoppage time. Bermuda surfaced from the break in a determined mood and the influential Osagi Bascome made it 2-0 two minutes after the teams re-entered the field. Jai-Zel Smith-DeShields closed the Bermuda goal account in the 42nd minute with his second goal of the competition. The loss dropped the Caymans Islands to 2-0-1, while Bermuda (3-0-0, 9 points) looks forward to Sunday’s challenge against Aruba (3-0-0, 9 points) in a top-of-the-table clash.  Bascome has scored in three consecutive games.
