Turks and Caicos Islands, Bahamas and Aguilla all enjoyed a series of firsts on Sunday in 2019/20 Concacaf Nations League Qualifying.

The day started with Turks and Caicos Islands (1W-0D-2L, 3 points) earning its first victory in CNLQ in an exciting 3-2 final over Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (1W-0D-2L, 3 points) at the TCIFA National Academy in Providenciales.

A pair of first half goals from Billy Forbes (7’, 43’) gave Turks and Caicos Islands a dream start, but Vincy Heat would respond with two late goals from Jahvin Sutherland (86’) and Nazir McBurnette (88’).

However, the home fans would leave happy as Jepthe Francois converted from close-range in the 89’ to set off the Turks and Caicos Islands celebration.

It was also a first for both Bahamas (0W-1D-2L, 1 points) and Anguilla (0W-1D-2L, 1 point) as the two sides played to a 1-1 draw at the Thomas Robinson Stadium in Nassau, thus earning their first respective goal and point in CNLQ.

A slick pass from Kapil Battice set up Glenville Rogers’ opener for Anguilla in the 30’, but Bahamas would answer in the 62’ thanks to Nesly Jean’s header.

Barbados (1W-1D-1L, 4 points collected its first victory of CNLQ with a 3-0 triumph over United States Virgin Islands (0W-0D-3L, 0 points) at Wildey Astro Turf in Wildey.

Goals from Hadan Holligan (25’), Raheim Sargeant (80’) and Mario Harte (89’) paced the Bajan Tridents to the three points.

Capping the day was a clash of unbeaten teams as Saint Kitts and Nevis hosted Canada at Warner Park in Basseterre.

It was largely a cagey first half until Atiba Hutchinson broke the deadlock in the 44’ with a soaring header.

It was all the advantage Canada needed as its defense did the rest in the second half to seal the three points and put Canada (3W-0D-0L, 9 points) on the verge of a spot in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. Meanwhile, Saint Kitts and Nevis fell to 2W-0D-1L, six points.
