Andre Blake and Jamaica will continue their quest to repeat as Caribbean Cup Champions, although it took a comeback and extra time against Warren Creavalle and Guyana to do it. The Golden Jaguars got out to an early lead thanks to a brace from Adrian Butters, however a goal from the New England Revolution’s Je-Vaughn Watson drew the Reggae Boyz within one. For the second straight game, Guyanese goalkeeper Kai McKenzie-Lyle (who plays professionally for Barnet FC in England’s League Two) was the hero as he saved a penalty shot. McKenzie-Lyle scored a late goal against Suriname to draw the match level.
Just like in their match against Suriname, McKenzie-Lyle’s heroics would unfortunately go for naught, as Dicoy Williams would score a late goal for Jamaica to equalize and send the match into extra time. In extra time, the Guyanese were down a man when Shaun Francis put the Reggae Boyz up for good in the 116th minute. Bethlehem Steel FC’s Cory Burke added on the insurance goal at the death, and Jamaica ended the match the 4-2 victors.
According to the recap at CONCACAF.com this match was Guyana manager Jamal Shabazz’ last as manager for the Golden Jaguars.
