Bermuda, St. Kitts, Guyana and Barbados all advanced to the second round of Caribbean qualifying for the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship, clinching their respective groups in weekend play.

In St. John's, Antigua, Kimaree Rogers scored five times, three in the second half, to pace St. Kitts to a 12-0 victory over Anguilla on Sunday, lifting the Sugar Boys past Antigua and Barbuda on goal difference to the Group B title. Both St. Kitts and Antigua, which beat St. Martin 5-0 on Sunday, finished with seven points, but St. Kitts had a plus-18 goal difference (21-3), four better than Antigua (17-3).

The two drew 2-2 in their head-to-head encounter on the group's opening day on Wednesday, a game in which Rogers scored the equalizer for St. Kitts in the 89th minute.

In Paramaribo, Suriname, Jabarry Chandler scored a goal in each game for Barbados, including twice each in a 6-0 victory over Grenada and a 3-0 win over St. Vincent and the Grenadines, to pace the Bajan Pride to the Group D title.

Like Rogers, Chandler tallied his fifth goal in three games in the 63rd minute of Saturday's 2-2 draw with Suriname, the equalizer in a match that gave Barbados the group crown.

In Roseau, Dominica, Kerwyn Benjamin scored three times over two games, a pair of wins over Dominica (5-0) and Aruba (7-0), that gave Guyana the Group C crown. Pernall Schultz, Domini Garnett, Randy Persaud and Sherwyn Lewis each scored had a pair of goals that helped Guyana to a pair of wins and a draw.

At Nassau, Bahamas, Chikosi Basen scored twice in the first 31 minutes that set the tone for Bermuda's 5-1 victory over the Bahamas on Friday and a two-game sweep of the host. Harold Antor scored the lone goal in Bermuda Sunday's 1-0 victory.

The four group winners advance to the second round, with Bermuda and St. Kitts joining Trinidad & Tobago and Cuba in Group E, and Barbados and Guyana joining Haiti and Jamaica in Group F.

there are quite a lot of high score games amongst these teams; 12-0 is unusual!
