Cayman's Sunset FC defenders did their best to keep it close under constant pressure from Harbour View FC from Jamaica.

A total of 22 goals were scored by the winning teams on Day 3 of the Cayman Airways Invitational U-14 Youth Cup on Wednesday.

Cavalier Soccer Club 11, IFFDC 0

Jamaica’s Cavalier Soccer Club dominated from start to finish, with forward Shanthamoi Brown registering the tournament’s first hat trick. Six of his teammates also scored.

Brown’s first goal came in the second minute. Michael Allen netted the first of his two goals six minutes later. Jamari Morrison headed the ball past stand-in IFFDC keeper Jeri Mitchell Bush in the 22nd. Dwayne Atkinson joined in the scoring a minute later before being subbed due to injury.

The score was 4-0 at the half.

Allen added his second score five minutes into the second half after he penetrated the IFFDC defense and then fired the ball into the back of the net. Brown scored his second and third goals in the 43rd and 52nd minutes. Substitute Rojeaux Baines opened his account in the 54th.

Cavalier SC sought to play for possession with a large lead, but capitalized on other opportunities thanks to Kamani Maxwell, who came in off the bench, and a pair from Kamoy Asher in the 60th and 68th minutes.

IFFDC, from Dallas, was playing without their first choice keeper, Connor Bryant, who broke his leg during the team’s opening match.

The first good scoring opportunity for Tottenham’s Jamie Bowden was denied by REV keeper Elliot Brown.

It was not until eight minutes before the half that the English side was able to gain a breakthrough, compliments of Rafferty Pedder.

Joshua Setchell scored in the 30th minute and Christian Carter scored on the verge of the break to give the Spurs a 3-0 halftime lead.

D’Jean Spencer added his name to the scoresheet in the 48th minute. Tarrelle Whittaker added a goal in the 65th and missed a chance for another when he beat the keeper but hit the woodwork in the 69th.

Although the score was 5-0, Brown’s work in the REV goal denied the Spurs a wider margin of victory.

Harbour View took control of the tempo and possession early in the game but missed several scoring chances.

Kafui Douet evaded defenders before crossing the ball to Kellijah Morgan in front of the Sunset goal, but his shot was denied by Lucas Burke, who seconds later made another impressive save.

It was heartbreak for the Cayman side in the 24th minute when Jaden Ebanks deflected the ball past his own keeper in an attempt to block a shot, giving Harbour View a lead they would not surrender.

Morgan scored a pair of goals in the 29th and 31st minutes to give Harbour View a 3-0 halftime lead.

The Jamaican side continued pressing forward when play resumed but were denied any immediate reward thanks to Sunset’s Micah O’Garro, who blocked several shots on the goal line, and Burke, who did his best between the pipes to keep his team in the game.

Oquassa Chong, Romaye Davis and Matthew Bell each added second half goals to double the Harbour View lead.

It was Sunset’s last game of the group stage. They lost twice after drawing the tournament opener.
