March 22, 2014
Day two of the 2014 CFU championships kicks off tomorrow March 23, at the same three venues with five more exciting matches as teams know exactly what they have to do to gain qualification to the CONCACAF Champions League and more importantly bragging rights as the top club in the region.
In Group 2 Caledonia and Waterhouse FC will look to extend their lead in that group when they face Inter Moengotapoe and Association Sportive De Mirebalais respectively at the new Mirebalais Stadium. Both teams are coming off opening night losses.
Inter Moengotapoe meets Caledonia AIA at 4:00pm and Association Sporting de Mirebalais face Waterhouse FC at 6:00pm.
A loss for either of these teams could most likely end their participation in the tournament, and based on the form of Caledonia and Waterhouse it will take a heroic effort to stop them from meeting on Tuesday in a top of the table clash.
Group 1 however, remains quite open as Bayamon FC leads that group by virtue of a 5-0 drubbing of Bodden Town FC and Centro Dominguito and Unite Saint Rosienne played to a nil all draw on opening night at the Juan Ramon Loubriel Stadium.
Bayamon now faces Centro Dominguito at 6:30pm and a win for Bayamon would make them the undisputed leaders of Group 1 heading into Tuesday night’s game.
Bodden Town will look to rebound from their opening night loss and face a determined Saint Rosienne squad in the opening game at 3:30pm, which before the tournament were extremely confident of qualifying and word from the camp is that they still are.
Meanwhile, in Group 3 with the withdrawal of SV Notch the chances for the three teams topping the group is much more difficult all three teams. Alpha United have taken the first three points by stopping Defence Force 2-0 and will be facing hosts Harbour View at 7:30pm at the Harbour View Stadium.
These twelve member association teams will be playing at their best and the top three will advance to qualification at the CONCACAF level and beyond.
