St. Lucia Under 14 Football Team demonstrated their prowess in the final game against host nation Dominican Republic. St. Lucia enjoyed most of the possession in the first half of the game but Domincan Republic cleared all attempts off their defensive lines. After an intense half time talk by Head Coach Cassim Vaso Louis the boys came back even more dominant. Striker Steven Octave who scored four goals on his debut was kept at bay in the previous two encounters but with such class it was a matter of time for him to be back on the score sheet. He went on to score two goals to bring his tally up to six goals while Keegan Caul was also back on the score sheet making it five total for him. Game ended 3-0 in favour of St. Lucia.
St. Lucia therefore played unbeaten in four games scoring a total of 17 goals with an average of 4.25 goals per game. While scoring goals has always been a problem for team St. Lucia, this U14 team has a new outlook on the future of St. Lucia Football. Before they left the SLFA planted a seed in their minds when President Lyndon Cooper told them that they will be the next world cup squad for the small island in 2026. As such all players made a promise to bring back that CFU U14 Boys Challenge Series Shield and that they did in Grand style.
At the end of the tournament Jahlil Evans scored four goals, Keegan Caul five, Shaquan Nelson one and Steven Octave six. Coach Vaso, Manager Ali Henry and Grassroots Coordinator Victorin Sugar Lawrence and Physio Kieber Codrington great job.
