MIAMI, Florida – The October window of League C of the 2023-24 Concacaf Nations League wrapped up on Tuesday with a 2-1 victory for Cayman Islands over US Virgin Islands in Group B at the Turman Bodden Sports Complex in George Town, Cayman Islands. Cayman Islands now sit on four points through three matches, drawing to within two points of group leaders Aruba. USVI are on one point through three matches. Cayman Islands enjoyed a
very positive start, and the hosts took a 1-0 lead in the 17’ when Elijah Seymour found the back of the net with a right-footed shot. Seymour received a pass from Zachary Scott and beat USVI GK Dylan Ramos to give Cayman Islands the advantage. Cayman Islands were not content with just one goal in the first half and almost tucked away a second right before halftime through Jah Dain Alexander, but Ramos was strong and made a big save to keep his side to within a goal. The home side continued pressing forward and they would get that second goal in the 57’ when Scott played the role of playmaker again, slipping a pass into Christhofer Nunez, who finished for a 2-0 lead. USVI would not go quietly, though, and moments after being denied on a chance, Rakeem Joseph thumped home a header off a corner kick to get within 2-1 in the 84’. Cayman Islands would see things out in the end, avoiding any further issues in defense to secure the three points.
