BASSETERRE, St. Kitts and Nevis -- When the dust settled at Warner Park, The Bahamas emerged in charge of League C Group B following a 4-0 victory over the British Virgin Islands.
It was a fairly quiet opening half, with Bailey Rowe’s half-chance in the 19th minute the only shot on goal of the first 30 minutes.
But the deadlock was broken when the visitors earned a penalty in the 37th minute; Lesly St. Fleur buried it into the bottom-left corner to give the Bahamas the lead.
The second half proved to be more open. St. Fleur made a fantastic run with the ball in the 49th minute and coolly finished past Ben Chapman to make it 2-0. St. Fleur, already the leading goal-scorer in team history, now has a total of nine international goals to his name.
Happy Hall tacked on a third to seal the deal in the 55th minute, his second of the competition.
A fine top corner finish from Quinton Carey in the 81st minute completed the scoreline at 4-0.
The Bahamas are now atop the group with two wins in two games, while the British Virgin Islands will continue to look for their first points of the tournament later in the week.
