Barbados suffered defeat in their Caribbean Football Union U17 Finals Group A match yesterday, going down 2-0 to hosts Haiti at the Sylvio Cator Stadium.
Barbados were on the back foot very early in the game when they conceded a fifth-minute goal netted by Denilson Pierre.
They then had to contend with a wave of attacks from the speedy Haitians and were further in trouble before the half-time whistle when Denso Ulysse scored in the 34th minute.
In the evening’s first game St Lucia defeated Trinidad & Tobago 2-0. St Lucia opened the competition with their first goal in the 25th minute through Noah Nicholas. Trinidad failed to score in the first half as St Lucia went into the second half with confidence. Nicholas would score his second of the night in the 53rd minute; his two goals ensuring
St Lucia an early 3 points in the group.
Barbados will hope to bounce back from their disappointing performance when they take on nemesis Trinidad and Tobago tomorrow at the same venue.
