BRADENTON, Florida – It was a busy day in Division 2 for 16 teams and plenty of late goals on
Day 6 at the 2019 Concacaf Boys’ Under-15 Championship.
French Guiana and Guyana started the day with a spirited affair that ended in a 1-1 draw.
French Guiana was first to get on the scoreboard thanks to a looping effort from Marc Kanama
in the 9’. It then had a golden opportunity to double its lead via the penalty spot, but Guyana GK
Shavid Hernandez stopped the spot kick, eventually paving the way for Shoran James’
equalizer in the 49’.
In another tight one, Saint Lucia scored in extra time to down Nicaragua 3-2. Donovan Perpie
(16’) and Darwin Corrales (35+2’) exchanged first half goals for Saint Lucia and Nicaragua,
respectively, before scores from Dahmanii Bertheir (46’) and Osmin Salinas (56’). Matters had
to be settled in extra time and Saint Lucia found the winner in the 89’ through Shaquan Nelson.
There was some late drama as well between Martinique and Antigua and Barbuda, with a last-
minute goal proving to be the difference. In the 70’ a ball fell to Mathys Chomereau-Lamotte,
whose right-footed shot deflected off an Antigua and Barbuda defender and in for the goal and
Cayman Islands and Belize battled to draw themselves, with 1-1 being the final scoreline.
Cayman Islands struck first in the 43’ through Breshawn Watson, however, Belize pulled level in
the 65’ from Samuel Miranda.
A strong second half powered Dominican Republic past Aruba 4-1. Aruba was first to strike
thanks to a Terick Monsanto goal in the 19’, but the second half belonged to the Dominican
Republic and goals from Gabriel Perez (44’), Luis Felipe Pimentel (52, 54) and Pablo Rodriguez
(66’) paved the way for the Dominican Republic victory.
There was no shortage of thrills either in Puerto Rico’s 2-1 comeback win over Bermuda. In the
20’ Bermuda took a lead through Remy Coddington, only for Puerto Rico to storm back and
even the contest thanks to Jensen Liquet’s goal in the 41’. Just when it looked like it would end
1-1, Puerto Rico earned a penalty kick and converted the winning score in the 70+1’ through
Rounding out the day was a 0-0 draw between Grenada and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
in which GKs Shaquille Charles of Grenada and Garwin Davis of Saint Vincent and the
Grenadines each made a number of top saves.
