Dominica couldn’t score the equalizer in the second half

Dominica’s chances of winning the Windward Islands senior football competition were dashed on Friday evening when they were beaten by St Vincent 3 goals to 2.

The game, played at Windsor Park Sports Stadium, started badly for Dominica when St Vincent scored in the opening minute of play through Kevin Francis.

Oalex Anderson scored in the 15th minute to put his team up two nil. Dominica retaliated with a goal from Matthew Walsh in the 24th minute of play but shortly afterwards, Anderson hit paydirt with his second goal of the match to give St. Vincent a 3-1 advantage.

Dominica scored their second goal in the 35th minute when a long shot from Chris Lawrence beat the diving goalkeeper.

At the end of the first half scores remained at 3-2 in favour of St. Vincent.

Dominica seemed to lack the determination and coordination in the second half and were unable to get the equalizer far less to win the game as they failed to create scoring opportunities.

In the first match of the day, St Lucia beat Grenada 1-nil with a goal scored in the 70th minute of play by Gerlanne Neptune.

St Vincent, on 4 points, will battle an unbeaten St Lucia who have 6 points, for the championship in the first game on Sunday. That encounter begins at at 5pm while at 7pm bottom place teams Dominica and Grenada will play each other to avoid the cellar position in the tournament.
