Bahamas Soccer suffers 2nd straight shutout loss

TEAM Bahamas suffered their second consecutive shutout loss in the current group stage of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Qualifiers.

Guyana blanked The Bahamas 4-0 Tuesday night at the Felix Sanchez Olympic Stadium in Santiago, Dominican Republic.

It was the first World Cup qualifier win for Guyana since November 2011.

Terence Vancooten opened the scoring after eight minutes, but the goal spree came in the second half when Kadell Daniel, substitute Omari Glasgow and Emery Welshman delivered the final margin.

The Bahamas is the lone team in Group F without a point. They are currently in fifth position at 0-2 with a -8 goal differential following last week’s 4-0 loss at home to St Kitts and Nevis.

St Kitts and Nevis lead Group F at 2-0 (six points), Trinidad and Tobago is 1-1 (four points), Guyana is also 1-1 (three points) and Puerto Rico is fourth at 0-1-1 (one point).

The winner of the group will advance to the next round.

Team Bahamas will take to the pitch again on June 2 when they travel to face Puerto Rico, followed by a home game against Trinidad and Tobago on June 6 at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium.
