Saint Lucia hosts Puerto Rico in international friendly

Saint Lucia hosts Puerto Rico in international friendly

(SNO) — The Saint Lucia under-15 boys national football team is set to square off against Puerto Rico in an international friendly on Thursday morning from 10:30 at the Sab Playing Field, Vigie, Castries.

The national team will seek to build on the 2018 success enjoyed by Saint Lucia in the Caribbean Football Union Under-14 Boys Challenge, Group B in the Dominican Republic, when they topped the group.

Saint Lucia, on that occasion, defeated Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos and St Martin. This U15 version of the team includes many of the players who featured in that competition, including Canaries and Square Boys striker Steven Octave, Keegan Caul (Castries/VSADC), and Jahlil Evans (Gros Islet/Northern United). Octave and Caul tied at five goals apiece for the team-scoring lead in DR.


There will also be a distinct Castries flavour, Central Castries having won the recent Saint Lucia Football Association Inc. (SLFA) Under-14 Boys tournament. Central Castries captain Shaquan ‘Ants’ Nelson was MVP of that series, Caul had the most goals, Sherqwane Prudent was named best defender, and Ajani Hippolyte, best midfielder. All four are included on this occasion, alongside members of the losing Castries East team.

According to a release from the SLFA, “This is one of many international friendlies scheduled for this U15 Team as they prepare for the CONCACAF U15 tournament to be staged in Florida, Miami in August 2019. The SLFA will be making a huge investment into this team as they have shown some good promise during their last international tour in the Dominican Republic in 2018.”
