Second-round play in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup opened Wednesday with five games across the region.

The day was highlighted by a remarkable rally by Puerto Rico and a five-goal outburst from Curacao.

CONCACAF.com takes a look at the action from the Caribbean’s qualifying competition for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Group 1 … Puerto Rico rallied from a three-goal deficit to defeat host Grenada, 4-3 on penalty kicks, after a 3-3 drill.  Hector Ramos (44’ pen, 62’) scored two goals in a winning effort, Shavon John-Brown (3’, 27’) netted twice for the Spice Boys.

Group 4 … Due to a waterlogged pitch resulting from heavy rains, French Guiana-Bermuda was abandoned.

Group 5 … Harrison Panayiotou (30’) extended his Caribbean Cup scoring to three straight games, striking for host St. Kitts & Nevis’ only goal in a 1-0 win over Suriname.
