The teams in Group A and Group B returned to the field of play on Tuesday in 2022 CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship Qualifying (CMU20Q) in the Dominican Republic, with Belize and Grenada among the teams flexing their scoring muscles, according to CONCACAF.

In Group A, CONCACAF said the day started off with Sint Maarten collecting their first win of the tournament in a 2-0 final over Dominica.

Jean Jacques Craane scored in the 37’ before Reshawn Eustace polished off the three points with a goal in the 88’, CONCACAF said.

Later in the day, it said “Grenada found their scoring stride with four different players finding the back of the net in a 4-0 win against British Virgin Islands, lifting the Spice Boys to first place in the group.”

CONCACAF said Keishon Clarke (27’), Aquil Lawlite (33’), Ogiste Lemoud (45+2’) and Benjamin Ettienne (67’) netted the goals.

In Group B, it said Belize “found their scoring touch” in a 6-1 triumph over Saint Martin.

A brace from Eldon Reneau (31’, 83’) led the way for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member nation, who also got scores from Tyrese Augustine (14’), Daijon Daniels (15’), Kevin Higinio (45+1’) and Jaden Dubon (75’) on top of a Saint Martin own goal (35’).

CONCACAF said the day was then rounded out by St. Lucia’s 3-0 victory over Anguilla.

“Goals from Brandon Sandiford (30’) and Daneo Caroo (71’), plus an own goal, lifted Saint Lucia to the three points and first place in the group,” CONCACAF said.
