Recap

Bermuda 2, Nicaragua 0

Bermuda ended its first-ever Gold Cup appearance on a high note.

LeJuan Simmons netted the first goal of the game in the 60th minute, and Nahki Wells doubled Bermuda's lead in the 71st minute with a header off Simmons' cross.

While Bermuda was unable to advance out of the group stage, the team should feel encouraged about how it performed in its tournament debut. Bermuda lost to both Costa Rica and Haiti by scores of 2-1 and has laid a foundation to build upon.

Nicaragua, meanwhile, goes home without netting a goal at this year's competition and still seeking its first-ever Gold Cup win.

     

Haiti 2, Costa Rica 1

The Haitians were joyful on the pitch following their 2-1 defeat of Costa Rica and understandably so, as they topped a Gold Cup group for the first time.

Haiti had to overcome a shaky start. In the 13th minute, Costa Rica took a 1-0 lead thanks to an own goal off of Djimy Alexis' chest and into the net.

However, Haiti was able to put that behind it when Duckens Nazon buried a penalty kick in the 57th minute. Alexis was then able to personally put his gaffe behind him when he made good on his mistake by netting the game-winner in the 81st minute.

Monday night's result set up a matchup between Haiti and Canada, while Costa Rica must regroup to take on Mexico. Both quarterfinal matches will be Saturday at Houston's NRG Stadium.
