NASSAU, The Bahamas — The Bahamas are in the driver’s seat in League C Group B, but with two games left there is still plenty to play for when they host the British Virgin Islands at the Thomas Robinson National Stadium on Thursday.
Currently sitting on six points, Bahamas are tied for the group lead with Bonaire, but hold a game in hand and with a win against the British Virgin Islands, they could set themselves up to need only a draw or close loss when they face Bonaire in the final match.
The first time these teams met the Baha Boyz impressed in a 4-0 victory that saw Lesly St. Fleur net a brace, while Happy Hall and Quinton Carey added a goal each.
The Nature Boyz will be keen to make sure that doesn’t happen again, though. After a heartbreaking loss to Bonaire their last time out, the British Virgin Islands will be trying to finish on a high note and play spoiler to their hosts.
Seventeen-year-old Tyler Forbes has impressed with a group leading three goals, and the equally young Bailey Rowe finally got on the scoresheet against Bonaire after a string of great performances.
