Caledonia AIA made easy of George Town FC on Wednesday night by whipping the hosts 5-0 at the TE Mc Field Sports Centre, George Town, Cayman Islands to advance into the final-four round of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship.

Caledonia, coming off a 0-0 draw against two-time defending CFU Club Champions Puerto Rico Islanders on Monday, got a pair each from strikers Devorn Jorsling (47, 70) and Trevin Caesar (72, 76) and one from Conrad Smith (80) against George Town.

Group Four was reduced to just three teams after a pullout by Haitian club Baltimore and Wednesday’s victory secured Caledonia (4 points) a place in the final-four while the contest is now between Islanders(1 point) and George Town (0 points) against each other on Friday to qualify as the second team out of the group.

Caledonia became the second Trinidad and Tobago club to reach the final-four round by joining fellow TT Pro League compatriot W Connection.

Connection, the 2011-12 Digicel Pro League Champions, and Antigua Barracudas, which plays in the United Soccer Leagues (USL), both qualified for the final-four after topping Group Five which was contested in Trinidad from May 6-10 in a round robin format with Haitian club Victory SC and Surinamese side Inter Moengotapoe.

While Caledonia, W Connection, Barracudas and (advancing team between Puerto Rico Islanders/George Town) looks to the CFU Club Championship trophy, the bigger prize will definitely be qualifying for next season’s CONCACAF Champions’ League.

The top three teams of the CFU Club Championship Final-Four round will advance into the CONCACAF Champions’ League.
