Cayman’s Thomas still top scorer after two days

| 15/08/2013

(CNS): Despite many more goals from the visiting teams during the second day of the CONCACAF Men’s Under-15 development tournament, no one has bettered Leighton Thomas’ five goals and the young Cayman player remains the top scorer in the contest so far. Thomas will get a chance to add to his scorecard this evening when the Cayman Islands takes on the US Virgin Islands at the Truman Bodden at 7:30pm. The game is free to enter and the public is encouraged to cheer on the national squad, whose historic performance on Tuesday with a 12-nil victory over St Maarten has put them at the top of Group A.

During the Group C and D openers on Wednesday, 16 goals were scored in four matches. At Ed Bush Stadium, Puerto Rico beat Martinique in a competitive fixture with a late second half goal.  El Salvador pulled away from Antigua and Barbuda in the second half, with three late goals for a 3-0 win, and Guadeloupe dominated the game at the Annex Stadium, beating Curacao 6-0 after four goals in the final ten minutes.

With a strong local crowd in support, one of the tournament favourites Honduras beat St. Martin, 5-0, placing them provisionally second in Group C.

The 4:30 match at Truman Bodden between Trinidad & Tobago and Honduras remains provisionally scheduled pending the arrival of the Trinidadian team to the island who are expected to arrive today.
