The Bermuda U/17 football team took on Trinidad in their second match of the Caribbean Football Union [CFU] Under-17 World Cup Qualifiers in Trinidad & Tobago, losing a closely contested match by a score of 3 – 2.

Both Bermuda and host Trinidad went into this game after defeats in their Group A Opening matches at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Bermuda’s starting line-up was Quinaceo Hunt, Link Smith, Brandon Jones, Keishon Bean, Zuhri Burgess, Tokia Russell, Kane Crichlow, Rahzir Smith-Jones, Blaiz Hall, Diego Richardson and Richard Jones, while the substitutes included Lejaun Matthews, Robert Edwards, Mateo Isaac, MoZiah Selassie, Mical Hardtman, Simeon Burrows, T’ai Williams, Jahquari Paynter, and Edry Moore.

Trinidad’s starting line-up was Emmanuel John, Kerdell Sween, Tyrike Andrews, Jesse Williams, Isaiah Hudson, Jodel Brown, Jaydon Prowell, Tyrese Bailey, Jerrin Jackie, Kishon Hackshaw and Nickel Orr.

Bermuda got the start they were looking for with a two goal lead inside the first 25 minutes, with Enrique Russell opening the scoring when a long ball into the box was mishandled by the Trinidad goalkeeper and Russell was on hand to score from inside the box.

Minutes later Russell was able to double the Bermuda lead, and Bermuda took that 2 goal lead into the half-time break.

The second half saw the two teams battle hard, Trinidad looking for the break through and Bermuda constantly defending. Trinidad pulled a goal back 71 minutes into the match, as Che Benny scored to bringing the crowd back into the match and then two minutes later it was 2 – 2 as Trinidad fought back.

Building off his success minutes earlier, Benny sent a pass to Jaydon Prowell who scored, and during injury time, Trinidad’s Prowell was on hand to score the game winning goal.
