Trinidad and Tobago collected its third consecutive victory with a 4-1 win Monday over St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Group C of League B of the 2022-23 CONCACAF Nations League at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, according to CONCACAF.

It said the home side took the opening goal within the encounter’s first 10 minutes, with Judah Garcia capitalizing on a contested ball, falling his way and driving into the box to slot it past goalkeeper Lemus Christopher in the ninth minute.

CONCACAF said Noah Powder doubled the lead for the Soca Warriors just two minutes later. A service into the box by Duane Muckette found its way to Powder, with Christopher just missing the interception, CONCACAF said.

But it said Cornelius Stewart cut the deficit to 2-1for the visitors in the 26th minute.

The goal came from a combination in which Azinho Solomon drove forward to set up the overlapping Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, CONCACAF said.

It said the right back then curved it towards the penalty area, and Stewart converted with a slick right-footed hit.

“Powder secured a brace to restore a two-goal lead for Trinidad and Tobago in the 41st minute when Levi Garcia took on defenders in the box, giving himself a bit of space and the chance to set up the pass for Powder to arrive and convert,” CONCACAF said.

It said the visitors “would not go quietly into the night and began to generate some of the better opportunities of the second half.”

CONCACAF said Stewart was “continually active to try and break through the defense and get his second of the night.”

The home side finally broke through though with their fourth goal of the night in stoppage time, CONCACAF said.

It said John Paul Rochford struck towards goal in the 90+1 minute to secure the three points.

CONCACAF said Trinidad and Tobago improve to 3-0-1, placing the side in “a good position to contest the top of the group when CNL play resumes in March.

“St. Vincent and the Grenadines remain last in the group with a 0-1-3 record, but still have hopes of avoiding relegation,” CONCACAF said.
