D.C. crushes Cayman on exciting day two of Under-15 Youth Football Cup

A 10-goal onslaught including three goals in the first 15 minutes all but sealed D.C. United’s 10-1 victory over Cayman Wednesday (30 May) at the Cayman Islands Invitational Under-15 Youth Football Cup.

Juston Rainey, Jacob Bergin and Jacob Greene all scored in the 8th, 11th, and 13th minutes. D.C United continued it’s scoring frenzy with Jeremy Garay (39′), Kevin Parades (67′), Jonathan Valladeres (31′ 61′) Thomas McDermott (68′) Issa Mudashiru (72′) in the second half. Bergin added a second goal in the 44th minute to tie for the tournament lead with three goals over two games.

For Cayman, Breeshawn Watson provided the lone goal in the 42nd minute.

In the early game, the Ed Bush Playing Field saw an all-Jamaican match up with Portmore United and Jamaica’s Nationals playing to a 1-1- draw.

Portmore’s Jerome Barclay scored on a free kick in the 15th minute, but Jamaica’s David Reid equalized with a beautiful header  in the 53rd minute. Late in the second half, Jamaica saw it’s biggest blow as tournament’s co-top scorer Daniel Miller was sent off for a challenge of Portmore’s goalie, receiving a red card. He will miss the team’s next match versus D.C. United Thursday (31 May).

“It’s a silly one, I don’t think he deserved it. Even the first yellow card. We’ll try and fight next game and see where we go from there and get some players some experience” said Head Coach Aaron Lawrence.

Over in the Cayman Brac, defending champions Cuba defeated San Antonio F.C. 3-1. Luis Lahrada opened the scoring for Cuba in the 24th minute. Dairon Ruedas scored his second goal of the tournament in the 48th minute. San Antonio’s lone goal came from Abraham Lincoln in the 70th minute.
