    CONCACAF UNDER-15 CHAMPIONSHIP

     

    MATCH RECAPS

    Monday – August 19, 2013

     

     

    GROUP D

    at West Bay, Cayman Islands (Ed Bush Stadium)

    Puerto Rico 0, Haiti 1

    GOAL:  Tcheckvoh-Kevin-Bonel Amede 41’

     

    Man of the Match:  Tcheckvoh-Kevin-Bonel Amede (Haiti)

     

    Haiti (3-0-1, 9 points) made it three wins in a row, narrowly topping Puerto Rico 1-0 on a 41st minute goal by Tcheckvoh-Kevin-Bonel Amede.  The Haitians can advance to the semifinals with a win over first-place El Salvador (3-1-0, 10 points) on Wednesday.  Despite having one game left on its schedule against Antigua & Barbuda, Puerto Rico (2-0-2, 6 points) cannot progress.  In Haiti’s three wins, it has conceded only a single goal.

     

     

     

    at George Town, Cayman Islands (The Annex)

    St. Vincent & the Grenadines 1, El Salvador 4

    GOALS:  Kaicy Peniston 69’ – Juan Martinez 23’; Josue Melendez 43’, 49’; Carlos Herrera 64’

     

    Man of the Match:  Josue Melendez (El Salvador)

     

    Josue Melendez scored two goals and El Salvador (3-1-0, 10 points) remained unbeaten with a 4-1 victory over St. Vincent & the Grenadines (0-0-4, 0 points).  The result keeps the Cuscatlecos one point ahead of hard-charging Haiti in advance of their meeting on Wednesday.  A draw will seal the group title and a place in the semifinals for El Salvador.  Juan Martinez gave the Central Americans a 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute.  After the break, Melendez (43’, 49’) struck twice, before Carlos Herrera made 4-0 with six minutes left on the clock.  Kaicy Peniston netted a consolation tally for St. Vincent, its second goal of the competition.

     

     

     

    at West Bay, Cayman Islands (Ed Bush Stadium)

    Martinique 2, Antigua & Barbuda 0

    GOALS:  Hedson Nattes 11’, Bryan Mont 54’

     

    Man of the Match:  Youri Oscar (Martinique)

     

    Martinique (2-1-1, 7 points) struck once in each half to top Antigua & Barbuda, 2-0.  Despite the victory, Martinique was officially eliminated from semifinal contention following victories by both Haiti and El Salvador.  In the 11th minute, Hedson Nattes – who tallied in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with El Salvador – opened the scoring.  Bryan Mont made it 2-0 in the 54th minute with his second goal of the tournament.  Both Martinique and Antigua will look to complete their participation in the inaugural CONCACAF Under-15 Championship on Wednesday, when they face St. Vincent & the Grenadines and Puerto Rico, respectively.
