The 19-year-old Bethlehem Steel midfielder, demonstrating composure that belies his age and experience at this level, rounded Abdul and slotted home to put the Reggae Boyz up 3-0.Jamaica continued to threaten the Aruban goal and found a fourth in the 34th minute when Abdul parried a shot from Willis into the path of an onrushing Shamar Nicholson for a tap-in from two yards.Jamaica went to the break leading 4-0 completely in control of the match.At the resumption, it did not take long for Jamaica to add to their lead.Flemmings, who was very effective down the left flank early in the half, drove past several defenders and into the box before passing the ball into the far corner, well out of Abdul’s reach for Jamaica’s fifth.Flemmings sank to his knees and raised his arms to the heavens in celebration after he scored, was integral to Jamaica’s sixth that came in the 53rd minute. His shot from the left side of the box was parried by Abdul into the path of Foster who tapped into net for his second on the night.The win means Jamaica have the maximum of 12 points from their four matches so far in the group and Theodore Whitmore’s side have yet to concede a goal while scoring 18.Aruba remain at the bottom of the table with no points from their four matches.last_img
