Caribbean Cup Recap: October 8, 2016 matches

Action from the Caribbean Cup match played in heavy rain between host Suriname (white jersey) and Guyana on October 8, 2016, in Paramaribo.

PARAMARIBO, Suriname – Suriname dug out of an early deficit to earn a 3-2 win after extratime over visiting Guyana as third-round, Group 1 play in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup opened Saturday at the rain-soaked Andre Kamperveen Stadium.

After Marcel Barrington gave the active Guyanese a 1-0 lead in the fourth minute, Suriname was held scoreless until the 58th minute.

Guyana goalkeeper Kai McKenzie-Lyle raised his hands to signal that he had a ball covered in the box. While the Barnet FC custodian stepped back for it to bounce to him, a quick-thinking Mitchell Kisoor swooped to intercept and place it into an open goal.

The game was 1-1 when the referee Dwight Royal blew his whistle to signify the end of 90 minutes of play. Since Caribbean Cup regulations state that a winner must be determined, the encounter went to extra-time. 

Suriname took the lead for the first time in the 103rd minute, when Galgyto Talea sunk a well-placed effort into the back of the net. Seven minutes later, second-half substitute Ivanildo Rozenblad made it 3-1, drilling home with his left foot.

The 6-foot-5 McKenzie-Lyle charged up the field for a corner kick in the 120th minute and duly netted off a header to bring Guyana back to within a goal, but that’s where the game ended.

Guyana will next turn its attention to a Tuesday night meeting with visitor and defending champion Jamaica in Leonora. takes a look at the rest of the Saturday action from the Caribbean’s qualifying competition for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
