Inter Moengotapoe won Group 2 with victories over Alpha United and Milerock of Guyana and Hubentut Fortuna of Curacao, while Victory claimed Group 3 with a win over Bayamon FC of Puerto Rico and a draw with Baltimore.
Baltimore finished runner-up in Group 3 and advanced as the best second-place team in the first round.
Since Groups 1 and 3 both had a team withdraw, leaving them with three teams each compared to four for Group 2, the results of the last-place team in Group 2 – Milerock – were voided and the standings recalculated.
That reduced Alpha United from six points to three in Group 2, same as Elite from Group 1, but one point behind Baltimore, which beat Bayamon and drew with Victory.
Group 1 Georgetown and Baltimore will join previously seeded sides Puerto Rico Islanders, the two-time defending champion, and Caledonia AIA of Trinidad in Group 4 Puerto Rico May 19-26. Victory and Inter Moengotapoe will next play W Connection of Trinidad and Antigua’s Barracudas FC in Trinidad in Group 5 May 4-11.
The top two from each second-round group will advance to a four-team final round, but only the professional clubs: the Puerto Rico Islanders, Caledonia AIA, W Connection and Barracudas will be eligible for the three berths in next season’s CONCACAF Champions League per tournament regulations
