Caribbean Cup: T&T beat French Guiana 4-2

Caribbean Cup: T&T beat French Guiana 4-2

Posted by Shanelle Weir on November 14, 2014

Trinidad and Tobago made it two wins in as many matches in the 2014 Caribbean Cup when they defeated French Guiana 4-2 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Kevin Molina opened the scoring in the 17th minute of play when he out-muscled a defender to beat the goalkeeper to his right from an acute angle. T&T would go in at the halftime interval hanging on to the one-goal advantage.

Molina, who scored the winning item in T&T's 3-2 victory over Curacao on Tuesday, continued his prolific season coming out of the MLS when he again found the back of the net with relative ease in the 58th minute to make it 2-0. And Lester Peltier increased T&T's advantage four minutes later when he converted a 58th minute penalty.

French Guiana gave themselves a ray of hope when Brian St Clair beat Marvin Phillip in the 68th minute and Jean David Legrand notched their second item in the 84th to reduce T&T's lead to a solitary goal at 3-2. However, Atullah Guerra ensured there would be no dramatic comeback by the opposition when he scored in the second minute of time added on to seal all three points for the Soca Warriors.

T&T leads Group A with six points and has virtually asssured themselves of a semi-final berth.

Molino, who copped the Man of the Match award for the second successive game,  stands atop the goalscoring list with three goal in two outings.
