(SNO) – One of Saint Lucia’s premier football coaches, Stuart Charles-Fevrier, led W Connection FC to their fourth Trinidad and Tobago Charity Shield on Friday night, June 1, as the Savonetta Boys blanked defending TT Pro LEague champions North East Stars, 7-1, at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
Returning from a stint in Central America, Saint Lucian fullback Kurt Frederick started the encounter and played the full 90, keeping the champs entirely at bay, save for a late penalty conversion. Recently-signed Otev Lawrence was also introduced to the defensive back four.
By halftime, “Stuartie” enjoyed the luxury of a 3-0 advantage, thanks to markers in the eighth, 30th and 34th minutes, the first two forming a brace by Marcus Joseph. By the 56th minute, the score was 5-0, and within another four minutes it was 6-0. The last Connection goal came at 69 minutes.
When all was said and done, Kurt Frederick had contributed an assist (on Joseph’s second goal). But Frederick found himself unable to get his name on the scoresheet proper, as he was twice denied by the Stars custodian.
According to one statistician, WCFC, which also counts former Saint Lucia national captain Earl “Ball Hog” Jean amongst its coaching staff, had 66% possession, and 14 shots on goal, as compared to just one for the new-look NES.
Marcus Joseph ended with his second hattrick in the famous green shirt, culling the winnings for WCFC, who will be donating their cash prize to the Marabella Crisis Centre.
An easy walk in the park for the Saint Lucian-led side, as they look solid title contenders once again.
