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.
