Osagi Bascome, one of the tournament’s standout performers after three days of play, scored the game-winning goal in the 26th minute.  The match was highlighted by solid technical play from both sides, with an emphasis placed on possession and speed of play.  Bermuda improved to 2-0-0 and has yet to concede a goal.  The Bahamas fell to 0-0-2.  Bascome won the Man of the Match award for the second time in two games and has two goals over that stretch.

    The Cayman Islands ended the night leading Group A over Bermuda on goal difference (+20 to +9) after an 8-0 win over the US Virgin Islands.  The red-hot Leighton Thomas Jr. scored three more goals – all in the opening nine minutes -- giving him a tournament-best eight.  Five different players accounted for Cayman’s other five goals.  The competition host, which has yet to concede a goal, improved to 2-0-0, while the US Virgin Island is still looking for its first point.  Cayman and Bermuda will meet on Friday in what promises to be a hotly-contested encounter.
