St. Lucia loses second match to hosts Dominica

Dominica’s national football team bounced back to beat St. Lucia by 1-0 to level the two friendly matches at one game each.

Randolph Peltier scored the lone goal from the penalty spot in the fifth minute of the second half to secure Dominica’s first victory in about eight games at the National Stadium.

The first half  of play saw Dominica creating are number of good scoring opportunities but failed to convert. The national team got a great chance when Peltier’s close-range shot was saved by the St. Lucian goalkeeper.

The second half of play saw Dominica scoring an early penalty when Briel Thomas was sent off the field after his second dangerous tackle of the match. Dominica was forced to finish the game with only 10 players.

St. Lucia continued to attack Dominica for most of the last 20 minutes of play but some good defending from Hubert Prince, Delbert Dailey and one brilliant save from the goalkeeper, Elijah Toulon, saved the day for Dominica.
