U-15s need to avoid defeat - EntornoInteligente

Entornointeligente.com / News day / Following their convincing 4-0 shut out of Barbados on Wednesday, TT began proceedings well and went ahead through an 11th minute goal by US-based midfielder Raenah Campbell.

But Bermuda hit back a minute into the second half courtesy a goal by Nia Christopher. Bermuda went on to defend doggedly for the remainder of the half to ensure a share of the points.

TT coach Rajesh Latchoo was somewhat disappointed with the result but credited his team for staying unbeaten in two games.

“We deserved the three points in this match. We had better possession but once we conceded early in the second half, Bermuda packed their defence and adopted a kick-and-rush approach which worked well for them,” Latchoo said.

“We outshot them with about six chances coming for us while they had two, but we failed to convert and that cost us the three points. But all in all, I cannot fault our girls for the performance. Obviously now we will go into the Honduras match with a lot to play for. We had a chance to see them in the first match against Bermuda so we know what they can offer. We’ll try to get a positive result to get out of the group and keep building from there,” he added.

Honduras are presently atop the group with six points after their 3-0 defeat of Barbados on Friday while TT sit in second position with four points and Bermuda third on one point.

The top two teams will qualify for the quarter-finals.
