Kivame Steeds, who scored two goals against the Virgin Islands in Bermuda's 6-0 win Wednesday, added the third goal on a corner kick in the 53rd minute.

Physical play resulted in three red cards, two against the Dominican Republic.
The D.R.'s Freddy Medina was ejected in the 52nd minute for "violent conduct," said the referee.
