The Virgin Islands side conceded in the 21st minute when Guatemala striker Darwin Gregorio Lom Moscoso found the back of the nets.
The VI boys ended the first half 2-nil down after defender Moisés Edwardo Hernández Moralez had struck in the 44th minute.
The young Virgin Islands squad; however, came back on the pitch determined not to be torn apart by the experienced Guatemala side that went into the match undefeated in 5 games.
The VI also have much to thank goalkeeper Philip Jules for as he did well to deny the Guatemalans on a few occasions.
There was no denying striker Robin Osvaldo Betancourth; however, as he scored Guatemala’s 3rd goal in the 81st minute.
The Virgin Islands were unfortunate to lose Charles R. Medway in the 88th via a red card but did well to prevent Guatemala from scoring in the remaining 8 minutes of play, 6 of which was added time.
The VI boys now play St Vincent & the Grenadines on Tuesday, March 30, 2021.
