T&T was captained by David Nahkid and in it's lineup foriegn players Anthony Rougier, Peter Prosper and Wesley Webb. This was also a young squad as well. Included in the lineup was Anton Pierre, Marvin Andrews, Travis Mulraine, Welsley Webb, Jerren Nixon and Kelvin Jack all under 23 players. T&T should have gone two goals up but teenage starter Anton Pierre missed on a through ball from Nahkid. Travis Mulraine also had a chance smoothered by goalie Aaron Lawrence.
Jamaica made the game more even after 25 minutes when they started to mount pressure on the T&T goal. They should have scored however, a good save fron Kelvin Jack kept the scoreline 1-0 at the half. In the 78th minute T&T defender Marlon Andrews was sent off for a dangerous tackle. That stretched the defence thin and in the 83rd minute Butler scored to gain a 1-1 tie in front of 6,000.
