Saint Lucia Loses To Sint Maarten In CONCACAF Encounter


Sint Maarten took a 2-1 victory against Saint Lucia at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia.

The local side was aggressive early on with Caniggia Elva striking in the 3’, but Sint Maarten goalkeeper Tyrell Richardson got his hands on it to deflect the shot.

Saint Lucia’s Terell Thomas headed in the opening goal in the 17’ off a corner kick from Kurt Frederick that took a friendly bounce inside the box.

Sint Maarten striker Gerwin Lake tried the spectacular with an effort from near midfield in the 17’ but was denied by the crossbar.

Lake had another effort from outside the box in the 23’ but was denied by the hands of Vino Barclett.

Sint Maarten finally broke through with the equalizer in the 38’, as Chovanie Amatkarijo put the finishing touch on a buildup.

Lake extended the lead for the visitors in the 57’ with a dribble into the box and the power hit past Barclett.

Malik St. Prix nearly tied it in the 74’ but his attempt in the box went high of the crossbar.

Barclett had a pair of saves to deny T-Shawn Illidge at the 90’ and Elmer De Vries in stoppage time.

St. Prix had one last header to equalize, but was denied by Richardson as both St. Lucia and Sint Maarten secured their stay in League B.

Elsewhere, Guadeloupe thrashed St. Kitts & Nevis 5–0 to top Group A and gain promotion to League A.
