Benna Boys lose second straight to Cuba in Nations League

The Antigua and Barbuda Benna Boys were beaten 3-1 by Cuba today, suffering a second straight loss to the same opponents in Group A of League B in the Concacaf Nations League.

Playing at the Estadio Antonio Maceo located in Santiago, Cuba, the home team was propelled by a hattrick from Arichel Hernandez with goals in minutes 16 and 20 to put Cuba up 2-0 at the half.

Antigua and Barbuda pulled within one just six minutes into the second half when D’Andre Bishop netted in minute 61 but Hernandez would complete his three-goal blitz with a close-range effort in minute 63.

The Benna Boys were also beaten 2-0 by Cuba last Thursday in Montserrat.

Antigua and Barbuda remains third in the four-team standings with six points from four matches while Cuba sits at the top of Group A with nine points from the same number of showings.
