Turks and Caicos Islands rallies for draw to kick off CNLQ Week 4

MIAMI, Florida Week 4 of 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying started with a bang as Turks and Caicos Islands stormed back to earn a 2-2 draw with British Virgin Islands, while Saint Vincent and the Grenadines held off Bonaire 2-1.

It was a history-making day for the British Virgin Islands, who earned their first point in CNLQ in the 2-2 draw with Turks and Caicos Islands at the Raymond E. Guishard Technical Centre in The Valley, Anguilla.

Troy Caesar scored British Virgin Islands’ first goal in four years with a header in the 64’ to make it a 1-0 game, before Jerry Wiltshire then doubled the margin 2-0 in the 83’.

But Turks and Caicos Islands roared back to pull level 2-2 back thanks to scores from Billy Forbes in the 86’ via header and Fred Dorvil in the 87’ to earn the point.

In the day’s other match, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines rallied from an early 1-0 deficit to top Bonaire 2-1 at the Arnos Vale Stadium in Arnos Vale.

Bonaire could not have asked for a better first half, as Jurven Koffy struck in the 37’ to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

But Vincy Heat proved a resilient side and tallied a pair of goals in three minutes when Cornelius Stewart and Chevel Cunningham each found the back of the net in the 77’ and 79, respectively, to give Saint Vincent and the Grenadines all three points.
