Castries, Saint Lucia: The Under 19 footballers of Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School (SCSS) played the Saint Lucia Sports Academy in the final match of the tournament. Both teams brought the best effort to the battle.
The match ended in a 1-1 score at the end of regular time perfectly set up for a penalty shoot-out. Both teams played with great desire to settle the result without the tense drama that is the penalty shootout. Ultimately the boys from the academy held their nerve better and won with a 4 to 2 scoreline.
The SCSS family has the highest regard for both our football teams for making it to the finals in both tournaments. Of even greater signifance is the manner in which the players executed their craft so well and thoroughly challenging academy players who train daily and comprise some of the best sporting talent in the country.
We salute in one accord as well Stephen Charles and Gilroy Lamontagne for their dedication and skill in preparing these boys for competition.
The boys in yellow and maroon won silver but in the eyes of the SCSS family they are gold medalists who will be back to prove their prowess.
