Bermuda 8 Barbados 1

Bermuda rolled into the Second Round of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup Prelims thanks in part to a Nahki Wells hat trick in an 8-1 victory over Barbados on Friday night at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

With the result, Bermuda advance to face Haiti in the Second Round of the Prelims with a berth in the 2021 Gold Cup group stage at stake on Tuesday. It will also serve as a rematch of their 2019 Gold Cup group stage match won by Haiti, 2-1.

The 8-1 scoreline also tied a Gold Cup record for most goals in a match (9).

It was a dream start for Bermuda, who raced out to a 1-0 lead just 17 seconds into the match when Wells turned a Zeiko Lewis cross into net, a call that was confirmed by VAR.

The Wells goal also made some history, as it marked the fastest goal in Gold Cup history.

Bermuda was hungry for more and a hard hit from Lewis was cleverly back-heeled by Wells, leaving Barbados goalkeeper Liam Brathwaite flat-footed, to give Bermuda a 2-0 lead in the 14’.

The Bermuda attack was rolling and Reggie Lambe stretched the lead to 3-0 in the 29’ with an excellent left-footed finish.

Dante Leverock was next to get into the act for Bermuda, as he smashed header into net for a 4-0 lead.

Despite the deficit, Barbados kept plugging away and they were handsomely rewarded in the 45+1’ when Hadan Holligan banked in a right-footed shot off the post to cut the gap to 4-1.

Bermuda halted any Barbados momentum and restored their four-goal advantage as a deep cross resulted in an own goal and a 5-1 lead in the 60’.

Bermuda were eager to add more and it became 6-1 in the 66’ with Kane Crichlow’s right-footed finish, followed a minute later in the 67’ by Lewis making it 7-1 with a left-footed shot.

Wells then completed the 8-1 scoreline for Bermuda in the 87’ when he converted from the penalty spot to nail down his hat trick.
