The Cayman Islands seemed to be closing in on their first win in this year’s World Cup qualifiers until Bermuda level the score with 25 minutes left on the clock.
After an hour delay due to rain, the Bermuda vs Cayman match kicked off Tuesday (June 8) night in Florida. In the 23rd minute, Cayman’s Mark Ebanks scored to give his team the 1–0 lead. Bermuda’s Kole Hall answered back in the 65th minute to equalise, ending the game in a 1-1 draw.
“It was nice to finish these qualifiers on a positive performance,” said Cayman’s head coach Ben Pugh after the match. “Going forward, it is important that we continue to grow and improve; we all need to do a little bit more if we are to take this team to the next level.”
