Guyana’s U17 Golden Jaguars ended their match against British Virgin Islands footballers with shared points after neither team was able to secure the victory.

Guyana’s U17 footballers are currently ranked third in Group A, five points away from the top sport with only one match remaining in the group stage.

British Virgin Islands earned their first point in the Concacaf U17 Qualifiers when they drew 1-1 against Guyana.

Johnny-jay Rowe gave British Virgin Islands a 1-0 lead in the 42’ before Bryan Wharton equalized for Guyana in the 71’. No winner could be found, forcing the teams to split the points.

Guyana’s final match will be played against Bermuda, who are currently undefeated in the tournament, on Wednesday evening.

Bermuda are edging closer to a berth in the 2023 Concacaf Men’s Under-17 Championship after posting a 4-0 win over Bahamas.

Jannis Roberts opened the scoring in the 21’ to hand Bermuda a 1-0 lead that held until halftime. In the second half, the Bermuda attack would kick into gear.

Chance Eve got things rolling with a goal in the 48’, followed by Quran Raynor in the 50’ and a score from Bakari Furbert in the 79’ to round out the 4-0 scoreline.

The victory keeps Bermuda in top spot in Group A and a place in next year’s Championship will be theirs with at least a draw in their finale versus Guyana.
