Saint Lucia finished fourth at the Caribbean Football Union’s inaugural Under-15 Boys Championship, which concluded on Sunday evening in Sint Maarten.

Saint Lucia had opened the tournament against Cayman Islands, losing 2-0. The rematch, to decide third place in the competition, would prove a much closer contest.

Kareem Foster scored eight minutes in for the Caymanians. But Saint Lucia never lost their composure, and Riquelme Sylvester hit an equaliser in the 35th minute.

The scores remained knotted until the final whistle, with the game going to penalties. Saint Lucia missed their first one, and the Caymans missed the fifth, which would have sealed victory. In sudden death, though, Saint Lucia missed again, and the Caymans hit to win 5-4.

The Saint Lucian lads can exit the tournament with their heads held high, however. In six matches, they earned three wins and aside from the penalty loss, their other two setbacks were by a combined three goals.

In total, Saint Lucia scored 18 goals in six matches. Riquelme Sylvester scored five in all, as did Linus Clovis. They also allowed just five goals, recording clean sheets in each of their three victories.

Saint Lucia’s semifinal opponents, Curacao, went on to win the title. They had beaten Saint Lucia 2-1, but conquered Dominican Republic 4-2 in the final.
