Well the way it looks like, all the group favorites need simply a tie on November 11 to guarantee their places into the second round except for Haiti and Trinidad..Panama is already in as expected..Both Haiti & Trinidad can't afford a lost or two ties..

Which beg the question...who has a better chance to advance.. well surprisingly enough it is Haiti rather than Trinidad..Why..?

Well when it comes to Caribbean soccer, any one from the Caribbean would tell you that the top 4 dogs of the Caribbean are Jamaica, Trinidad, Cuba and Haiti.. The 5th place is up for might be surprised that it is not Grenada, Guadeloupe or Martinique it is Guyana...they have become the hot bed of Caribbean soccer because they keep on winning.. A good portion of the team are playing in Trinidad league, most in Caledonia club...

So Guyana really will have two home games, one in Trinidad and one in Guyana...not to mention strong familiarity with the field and the players..the players are also hungry for more jobs in Trinidad they have something to prove or to show..

Antigua really know nothing about Haiti except from watching the videos..this is a completely new team from the one Trinidad beat 4-0..This team is made up of 100% European & MSL players of Haitian descent..from watching the video, A&B will only really see Haiti with total ball control, Curacao and VI players chasing Haitian players like Dogs and Cats with bones....Not to mention in 7 previous meetings, A&B has only managed to win on game against Haiti..

So, I think Haiti has a better chance than Trinidad to advance..your opinions are welcome..even though I think T&T will advance as well but I think Haiti has a better chance..

Tempete and PR Islanders Secure In Club Champions Cup Final
Hosts Alpha United to battle Defence Force FC for third place

Georgetown, Guyana: The CFU Club Champions Cup Final kicked off last night at the Providence Stadium in Guyana with Haitian club Tempete taking on stalwart Trinidad & Tobago League champions, Defence Force FC in Semifinal 1. However, with no goals after regular and extra time, Tempete won 4-2 on penalties.

While, in what many considered the feature match of the night, Alpha United, played on home soil against CFU defending champion Puerto Rico Islanders. After regular time, the game was even on one goal each but the players of Islanders seemed to find their second wind in extra time when they scored 2 more goals to send them into the Final tomorrow night.
Tempete flew into Guyana in the early morning of their Semifinal due to flight complications and had little hope of winning against a solid and well trained Defence Force FC. However, the team spirit was not lacking from the Haitians as they attacked from the onset and put the Defence Force under pressure for the 90 mins of regular time. The game then went into extra time however, after two hours of play, a goalless draw was the scoreline.[/b][/u][/color]

Kicks from the penalty would decide the match and Tempete was well placed to and on target for their first four attempts.

Defence Force's first two efforts from Richard Roy and Kerry Joseph were on target but Devin Jordan and Anton Joseph were not so lucky. With two misses on the sheet, and Tempete's fourth penalty in the net, no more shots were necessary. Tempete qualified for the CFU Club Champions Cup Final and as a CFU finalist, is now in the 2011-2012 CONCACAF Champions League.

In the second semifinal match, home team Alpha United was pitted against the Puerto Rico Islanders.

Islanders had arrived in Guyana on Sunday night, after playing a league match on Saturday in the US, in order to acclimatise to the Guyanese weather. This seemed to have worked to their advantage since the Puerto Rican team scored in the 23rd minute, through Dwain Jacobs, to put them in the lead.   

The home team played an unimaginative game in front of their countrymen but managed, through the effort of Matthew Bouraee to equalize in the 37th. The game continued but at a slower pace, after the equalizer and after 90 minutes of play, both teams were on equal footing.

In extra time, the Islanders demonstrated their exceptional training by kicking the tempo up a notch and putting Alpha on its back foot. Dominican Republic national, Jonathan Fana Frias scored in the 18th minute of extra time to give Islanders the lead but it was David Foley's 26th minute of extra time goal which took the match out of Alpha's grasp.

After last nights matches, Islanders and Tempete will now play in the Cup Final at 8pm on Friday night at the Providence stadium while Alpha United and Defence Force battle for 3rd place.

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams of teh CFU Club Champions Cup, automatically qualify to the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champion's League.


It looks like Tempet of Haiti has won it 3-2 on penalty kicks

For your information my Trini friend friend, although you were the better team in that tournament in 1973 but Haiti did not rob you. I was at the 1973 game.
The goals were disallowed for the following reason

1.One Trini player who had the reputation for making his hand freethrow feel like a cannon, throw the ball into the net and the ball never touch the goalie nor a defender. Of course you can't score with your hand in soccer..

2. During a corner kick, while our goalie was going after the ball, one trini player held him down by his waist area. Goal was disallowed

3. During a corner kick again, one trini player, pick up a pile dirt from the ground and  threw it in the eyes of our goalie...referee saw them all..

Guys give Jamaica some credits..I don't think right now there is any team in the caribbean that can beat mexico, Honduras and canada all in row at home without conceded a goal..

My trini fans if your life depend on it..would you make that bet on your trini team to beat all these 3 teams in row when it accounts the most(world cup qualifiers) to beat Mexico , Honduras and Canada  full team in a row is monumental task. I think they deserve to be in the top 5 of the Concacaf rankings.. don't get me wrong.. I am still picking to Trinidad for the .5 spot to face a team in South America like Chile or Venezuela to earn the final spot.. I think the US, Mexico and Costa Rica will occupy the first 3 spot as usuals and trinida will fight a team from South america to get in..

Barbados whips host St. Kitts 3-1 to win Group D of Digicel Caribbean Championships
Second phase spot in Cuba (Group G), St. Kitts also advance to Group H (Trinidad)

Posted on September 29, 2008

Sunday, September 28; Warner Park, Basseterre, St. Kitts: It was a sweet end to group D of the Digicel Caribbean Championships (DCC) for Barbados who kept their composure and patience for a solid come from behind 3-1 win over hosts St. Kitts-Nevis when the final match in the group and the first phase of the competition ended on Sunday evening.

Despite losing out as the group winner, St. Kitts still advanced to the second phase of the Championships and will face off against group G hosts Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Antigua & Barbuda in early November. As group winners, Barbados sealed their place in group H to be contested in Cuba.

The team from the Land of the Flying Fish flew high in the mountainous host Island to silence the large home crowd at Warner Park which was very voluble after the home team, who held the upper hand for most of the first half had taken the lead when captain and playmaker George Isaac scored a scorcher in the 13th minute.

Isaac, who was marshalling the rampant Kittitians, received the ball mid way the Barbadian half, weaved his way closer to goal and from 20 meters out unleashed a well calculated right foot shot that went to the right of advancing Barbadian goalkeeper Adrian Chase and into the V.

The goal was just reward for the home team which was dominating play at the time and they continued to do so by stringing together passes which saw them in the Barbados half of the field for long periods.

Isaac, in tandem with Jason Lake on the right side, did present many challenges for the Barbados team who were allowing the home team to dictate the flow of play. The Barbadians, who made five changes to their starting line up from the British Virgin Islands encounter, were guilty in the first half hour of playing too much air ball, perhaps a ploy since they were taller than their opponents, but St. Kitts were playing the ball on the turf which brought them success.

After taking the lead and looking very good, St. Kitts lost their focus but the Barbadians were now beginning to put things together. With the height advantage, the Barbadians always looked dangerous on set plays as they did in the BVI game and two of their goals came via the same route from defenders.

Goal keeper Julani Archibald was called into action to pull off a save off an acrobatic nature in the 34th minute from a well taken free kick as he tipped the ball over the bar and out of danger. But their lead was soon to be nullified from the resulting corner which was taken by seasoned campaigner for Barbados, their Captain Norman Forde.

Forde’s crossed ball was again touched by Archibald, who was not able to gather cleanly, and the lurking Johnathan Straker did the honors of completing the play with goal in the 35th minute. The equalizer came at a time when the home team was still dominating play.

A few minutes later, Barbados got the chance to forge ahead when Lashida Williams found himself ahead of the defense but placed the ball straight to goalkeeper Archibald. And just when it looked like the score would have remained tied with half time approaching, Barbados won a free kick 30 meters out on the left side of their opponent’s goal. The long swirling shot was taken and the tall Barbadian defenders came into action once again, making the home team pay for poor marking as they stood flat footed allowing Barry Skeete to space and time to let off a shot that beat the keeper on the stroke of half time.

The confidence and momentum Barbados had built up in the final 10 minutes of the first half was brought over to the second as they upped the offensive tempo on the hosts. The energetic Isaac continued to work overtime for the Kittitians but the frustration of not being able to get the equalizer soon got the better of him when he drew the first red card of this leg in the 67th minute.

Isaac’s exit from the game was a major setback for the home team and they never recovered. The game was put beyond their reach ten minutes before full time when Lashida Williams scored his second goal in as many matches.

The result was good for Barbados who topped the group but the home team had done enough work when they hammered BVI 4-0 in the opening game last Wednesday to finish as the runner up.

Twelve countries will compete in the second phase of this the Third Edition of the DCC, four will be in each group with matches scheduled to be played throughout October and November in Guadeloupe, Cuba and Trinidad.

The top two from each group will advance to the finals in Jamaica in December when they face defending Champions Haiti and the host country for the top prize of US $120,000.
