Barbados Tridents kicked off their qualifying campaign for the Concacaf Under-20 Football Championship with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Group D rivals Bermuda at the Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium in Puerto Rico on Wednesday night.

Hungary-based forward Thierry Gale showcased his appetite for goals with a late brace to down Bermuda after Luciano Swan had given the Gombey Warriors the lead.

After a game in which Honduran referee Hector Hernandez brandished eight yellows and one red card, Barbados Football Association technical director Ahmed Mohammed was pleased with the response of the team, especially considering the conditions and the ferocity of the opponents.

“We started the game okay. The only problem that we had was the field was very wet and heavy, so we had some difficulties,” he said. (NM)
