U-15s defeat Puerto Rico
BARBADOS’ FOOTBALLERS SUSTAINED their winning streak yesterday, defeating Puerto Rico 2-0 in a top-of-the-table CONCACAF Under-15 Championship clash at the IMG Academy in Florida.
Substitutes Thierry Gale and Nazario Adamson came off the bench to score a goal each in the second half to lead the team to victory.
Coach Renaldo “Pee Wee” Gilkes, while admitting the match was harder than the one played against Guadeloupe, said the boys handled the pressure really well, paced themselves and scored at the appropriate time.
“It was another difficult one. The competition is very very high over here. All of us [are] in Division 2 of the CONCACAF competition. The weather conditions were a bit more favourable. There was a bit more breeze . . . and I think we were able to settle down and play our brand of football,” Gilkes said. (RA)
