BRADENTON, Florida – Group A swung back into action at the 2018 Concacaf Under-20 Championship, with Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname and the United States all improving to 2W-0D-0L in the tournament.
Trinidad and Tobago opened the action in the group with a 5-1 triumph against a pesky Puerto Rico side.
The Soca Warriors took a 2-0 lead, only for the Boricuas to strike early in the second half to make it a one-goal game. But Trinidad and Tobago finished strong with three goals to grab the three points.
Suriname and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines had the most entertaining of the group’s three matches, as Suriname overcame an early Trezine Da Souza goal (22’) for Vincy Heat with scores from Gleofilo Vlijter (29’) and Alvaro Verwey (31’) for the comeback win.
The U.S. then closed out the day’s action with a decisive 13-0 win against the U.S. Virgin Islands. Ulysses Llanez’s hat trick and braces from Justin Rennicks and Mark McKenzie led the way for the U.S.
