CURACAO – Montserrat and Antigua and Barbuda played to a 2-2 draw in a Concacaf Group A encounter in World Cup qualifying Thursday night.

It certainly was a game of two halves as four goals were scored in the opening 45 minutes and none in the second half.

Montserrat strker Lyle Taylor gave his side a 1-0 lead by converting a penalty kick in the seventh minutes before Eugene Kirwan pulled one back for Antigua in the 23rd minute.

Taylor again celebrated a goal in the 26th minute but D’Andre Bishop tallied just before the half to equalize.
