Bermuda started brightly, winning the game’s first corner in the early minutes, having most of the possession. The first shot of the game came off the boot of Lindo, but it was easily saved.

Smith controlled the midfield for Bermuda with Honduras struggling to get out of their half, and after some ten minutes Honduras had their first attack.

In the 21st minute Bermuda conceded the game’s first and only goal when Andrea Lopez found the back of the net. Bermuda immediately went in search of the equalizer with Samuels getting a shot off, but it went wide.
