    - Puerto Rico FC goalkeeper Trevor Spangenberg kept the clean sheet.
    - Ramos, a Puerto Rico international, has scored four career goals in the Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League (2 with the Puerto Rico Islanders, 2 with Isidro Metapan).

    Five of the six teams have already earned their places in the finals: two-time defending champion and host Central FC (Trinidad & Tobago), Racing FC (Haiti, Group A), Cibao FC (Dominican Republic, Group B), Grenades FC (Antigua & Barbuda, Group C) and San Juan Jabloteh (Trinidad & Tobago, Group E).

    The champion of the Caribbean Club Championship qualifies for the newly re-formatted CONCACAF Champions League, while the second-, third- and fourth-placed clubs will participate in the Confederation’s newly launched club championship for Caribbean and Central American teams, which kicks off in August.
