Bermuda pay penalty against St Vincent in CFU Under-14 Challenge Series
St Vincent & the Grenadines 1 Bermuda 0
Bermuda suffered another setback after losing their second straight match at the Caribbean Football Union Under-14 Challenge Series in the Dominican Republic today.
Vashun Blanchette’s team were edged by St Vincent & the Grenadines in their penultimate group one second tier match.
Very little separated the teams in a cagey match that was ultimately decided by a late penalty.
The loss was Bermuda’s second in 48 hours, having been edged by French Guiana 2-1 on Sunday.
French Guiana jumped out to a 2-0 lead with goals from Stevey Lalaymia and Chryalan Holder before Azende Trott pulled one back for Bermuda.
That defeat followed on the heels of the island’s emphatic 9-0 thrashing of Dominica in their tournament opener on Saturday.
Midfielder Kannahz Fray led the charge with a hat-trick, the first of the tournament. Forward Roger Williams added a brace while Logan Jiminez, Tiago Correia and Keori Leverock also got in on the scoring act.
Dominica’s woes were compounded by the 57th minute sending-off of Chance Marshall.
Bermuda will face Barbados in their final group match on Thursday which they must win and then rely on other results go their way if they are to progress to the knockout stage.
