Guatemala Defeat Bermuda In CONCACAF Semi

August 23, 2013

[Updated] The semi-final matches for the CONCACAF U-15 tournament this evening [Aug 23] in the Cayman Islands will be streamed live online.

Both semi-finals can be watched on starting at 7pm EST [8pm Bermuda time]. The semi-final matches will begin with Bermuda vs. Guatemala followed by Honduras vs. El Salvador.

The CONCACAF tournament has seen teams from 23 member associations take part, including Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, the Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Curacao, El Salvador, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, Saint Martin, St. Maarten, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago and the US Virgin Islands.

Bermuda progressed through the group stages of the tournament after going through Group A undefeated beating the Cayman Islands 3-0, Aruba 3-1, the Bahamas 1-0, the US Virgin Islands 8-0 and St Maarten 5-0 en-route to the semis.

Update #1: Bermuda bowed out of the Tournament, going down to Guatemala on kicks from the penalty mark.

Bermuda took the lead in the 32nd minute when Jordan Lambe scored, however Guatemala equalized in the 48th minute when Francisco Cifuentes found the back of the net.

Neither team could break the deadlock in regulation sending the game to be decided on penalties, which saw Guatemala take the win and advance to the finals where they will meet Honduras on Sunday.

Update #2: Bermuda will face El Salvador in the 3rd place game at 7pm Bermuda time on Sunday [Aug 25].

    This is a massive result ..the combo of Bascombe – Smith and Roberts have had a huge impact on this talented group…the future looks promising…

    • Frank talk says:

      Ermmmm not to take anything from the staff assigned to this engagement, but its long been held that up to u14 Bermuda should be competive in the region. It’s only now that there is a regional tournament where this belief can tested.

      The real measure will be in two years time at the u17 level (and when the USA, Canada and Mexico join the party).

      In the meantime, well done to all

    After taking apart some of the lesser teams at the group stage, I wondered how they would do against one of the heavyweights in CONCACAF. That question was answered in a big way. Bascome and Co have done this country proud. Unfortunate to go out on penalties but this was our best result in a very long time. Well done to all of you. What is unfortunate however, is the pathetic/calculated lack of coverage from the other media. Thank-you Bernews-seriously, thank-you!

  8. Valerie Dill says:

  9. James says:

    The very best of luck in the consolation final against El Salvador. This is a massive match and one that can help move Bermuda along in Central America and the Caribbean.

    • Well done Bermuda I’m truly proud of all my players!! One major observation coming from a coach when we scored the first goal why did we go away from how we were playing!! Why didn’t the coaches instruct the players to keep possession of the ball and to stop booting it up the field That’s how we let Guatemala back in the game. I am a coach and I will discuss this Andrew and Karl on their return
