KINGSTON, Jamaica – Junior Flemmings scored twice in three minutes in the first half and Michael Seaton added a goal for the second consecutive game to give Jamaica a 4-0 victory over Antigua & Barbuda and into the Caribbean qualifying finals for the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship on Sunday.
After a 10th-minute goal by I’Ishmale Currie, Femmings scored in the 17th minute and added a penalty kick in the 20th minute to stake Jamaica to an early 3-0 lead.
The Jamaicans finished atop the three-team Group 1 with six points.
Bermuda, which defeated Antigua, 2-1, on Friday night with two goals from Ras Stafari Burrows, was second with three points.
Seaton, who had tallied the final goal in Wednesday’s 5-0 win over Bermuda – was helped by Jaheel Hyde, who finished the scoring for Jamaica in the 44th minute.
Jamaica joined Cuba and Haiti in the next round of qualifying Aug. 19-30 at a site to be determined against the winners of Groups 4 and 5 and the best overall second-place team from the five first-round groups.
Five teams will qualify for the CONCACAF finals in Panama on April 6-19.
