KINGSTON, Jamaica (Nov. 3, 2016) – The U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team cruised past Jamaica’s U-17 National Team with a 3-0 victory in the first of two friendlies scheduled during their training camp in Kingston.
The match was business as usual for the U-17 MNT. Andrew Carleton connected with Ayo Akinola, who had no trouble finishing to give the USA a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute. Captain Josh Sargent joined the party just ten minutes later, finding the back of the net with an assist from midfielder Blaine Ferri.
With a 2-0 U.S. lead, the second half was much quieter than the first. However, Tonny Temple found the back of the net in the 90th minute, just three minutes after he came on as a substitute for Sargent. Christopher Durkin claimed the assist for Temple’s goal, which secured the 3-0 victory for the U.S.
The U-17 MNT and Jamaica will square off once again on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. ET.
