Jamaican forward, Luton Shelton, registered a first half hat-trick in eight minutes to propel the Reggae Boyz to a comfortable 6-0 victory over The Bahamas, in their return leg CONCACAF second round qualifying match, at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium on Wednesday. This feat was witnessed by a fair size crowd of spectators.

Added to the 7-0 drubbing in the first leg on Sunday, Jamaica advanced to the semi-final phase of the qualifying series with a 13-0 aggregate margin.


The Reggae Boyz now joins Honduras and awaits Mexico and Canada who holds 2-0 and 3-0 advantages over Belize and St Vincent and The Grenadines respectively.


The other goal scorers for Jamaica were Deon Burton in the 30th and 56th minute and Tyrone Marshall in the 40th.


This was the first international football match played at this venue which was built to host the Opening Ceremony for last year's ICC Cricket World Cup.
