Bonaire win ABCS Tournament

Bonaire became the unlikely champions of the 2nd ABCS Tournament tonight as the beat Aruba 4-3 on penalty kicks after the match had finished 2-2. Kenneth Kunst opened the scored for Bonaire in the 34th minute and Rolando Janzen extended that lead in the 45th minute. Aruba, who started the match with the same lineup that beat Suriname on Friday, equalized with goals from Jean-Luc Bergen (52') and Frederick Gomez (76') early in the second half. With the Tournament not using extra time, the match went to penalty kicks where Raymond Baten, who converted his penalty in the win over Suriname on Friday, missed Aruba's first penalty. Jean-Luc Bergen, Erik Santos de Gouveia, and Annuar Kock all then converted their spot kicks but Frederick Gomez could not score his penalty as he did on Friday, and Bonaire, who do not have much of a pedigree in international football and came last in the 2010 ABCS Tournament, were crowned champions.

In the 3rd Place match, which took place prior to this one, previous champions Suriname won 2-0.
