FLOWing to the finals

Fresh on the heels of the island wide celebration of its historic launch last week, Flow St. Lucia has scored another success after the company’s staff football team made it through to the finals of the 2016 Inter Commercial Futsal League.

Flow comes up against the St. Lucia Teachers’ Union in a hotly anticipated faceoff scheduled for Saturday April 30 at the Beausejour Indoor Practice Facility. The match kicks off at 7:25 pm.

Flow blazed a trail to the finals on the back of two successive wins against Caribbean Metals and SLASPA. They defeated Caribbean Metals 4-3, while SLASPA went down to a determined Flow 4-1.

Several of Flow’s staff members came out in full force to support their team and cheer them on the road to victory.  The Flow captain Kissinger Anthony said he is extremely happy with the team’s performance and added he remains optimistic they will continue to play with the same level of determination in the finals.

“I am really proud of my teammates’ performance throughout the games. Hats off to the members of the opposing teams, who put up a strong challenge and brought out the best in us. We came prepared and every player has given 100 percent on the pitch.”

Kissinger said Flow’s strong focus on team building also helped to inspire them.

“To a great extent we were able to tap into the cohesive atmosphere and the spirit of cooperation and working toward a common goal that is being encouraged throughout the new Flow. At the moment we feel motivated and we’re just going with the flow, We intend to stay focussed and continue working together as a team going into the finals,” said Kissinger.

He thanked the fans, especially his workmates for their support.  

The 2016 Inter-commercial Futsal League is organized by the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture. The competition is part of the Chamber’s ‘healthy lifestyles for working persons’ program. It’s a modified form of football, played with five players per-side on a smaller, typically indoor facility.
