Lester Peltier scored three times and Trinidad and Tobago beat Barbados 4-0 in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

Hughton Hector also scored for Trinidad, which bounced back from a surprising 2-1 loss to Bermuda on Friday.

Peltier, who entered with only one international goal, got off to a fast start and kept pressuring Barbados. The 23-year-old Peltier scored in the seventh minute, then added two more in the second half at Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Hector finished the scoring in the 88th minute, taking advantage of a defensive error by Barbados.

With one qualifying spot available, the Soca Warriors are competing with Guyana for the lead in Group B. They will play a home-and-away doubleheader in mid-November.
