(Cayman Sports Buzz): The race for semifinal berths is taking shape after two days of play in the 2019 Cayman Islands Invitational U15 Youth Football Cup, with Mt Pleasant Academy of Jamaica and American side DC United sitting atop the table of their respective groups. Here are the results for the second day of action:

  • Tobago All Stars 1
  • Cavalier FC 2

In the first game in Cayman Brac on Wednesday (5 June), Cavalier FC from Jamaica edged Tobago All-Stars 2-1. It was Cavalier FC’s first win of the tournament after dropping their opener a day earlier to Mt Pleasant.

  • CD Victoria 0
  • Mt Pleasant Academy 1

Jamaica’s Mt Pleasant Academy registered their second win in as many games, holding their Central American opponents scoreless through the 70-minute match. Kevaughn Wilson’s 27th minute goal was the difference-maker to see Mt Pleasant going top of Group 1 with one game to go.

  • Cayman Islands 0
  • DC United 2

Meantime, DC United rolled to their second consecutive victory with a 2-0 win over the Cayman Islands National U15 Team in a high energy encounter. Sebastian Richardson broke the deadlock 14 minutes into the contest. Edwin Henriquez, scoring his second time in the tournament, added the other goal in the 60th minute.

  • Cuba 0
  • Portmore Utd 0

Jamaica’s Portmore United remained undefeated through two games after a tactically sound contest against the Cuba National U15 Team. Following up on their 1-0 win versus the Cayman Islands a day before, Portmore United matched Cuba. Both teams created opportunities, but neither could find the back of the net. The result puts Portmore United in second place in Group 2 on four points, while Cuba picked up their first point of the competition.

The final group stage matches were being played Thursday evening. The top two teams from each group will advance to the semifinals to be played at Ed Bush Sports Complex Friday, 7 June.
