Press Release: Guyana victorious over Dominica

Dominican team

Guyana made light work of Dominica in their match on Sunday in Barbados.

Guyana opened the scoring in the 5th minute of play and was awarded a penalty kick soon after making it 2-0, in little time. Guyana continued their dominance and the Nature Ladies could not find a response. Added to their distress, quite a few of their players went down injured. By half time it was 4-0.

The Nature Ladies came from the break without goalkeeper Celia Gregoire who was badly injured. They were more focused and had a little more possession making some attacks at a goal but unable to convert. In the second half of the game, the Nature Ladies conceded only one goal. At the end of play, the score was 5-0.

Head coach of the Nature Ladies, Ronnie Gustav says that the team has a lot of work to do. He stated that the girls lacked aggression and focus at the beginning of the game and were unable to carry out the game plan.

Meanwhile, head coach of the Guyana Lady Jags said that after the loss against Antigua, the team knew what they had to do.
Chante Sandiford added that her team is disciplined and ready to take on the task of representing their country. They hold each other accountable to the rules set in place and to the expectations they have of each other as ambassadors of their island.

The Nature Ladies will play their next two matches in October.

    The stark reality is sports teams excel through a structured regiment of regular, professional training and good coaching that help to propel promising, raw talent into winners.

    Kudos to the young women for giving a best effort on behalf of country!!!

    Dominica lost AGAIN? Wow, what a surprise! Who would’ve thought :lol:

    Seriously, why is Dominica so bad at sports? And why is Dominica’s standards so low? Dominica’s “good” is “terrible” in other countries & these people wouldn’t have even made the team. That goes for football, athletics & all the other sports. Are Dominicans just naturally terrible at sports? Are the coaches just terrible at their jobs? A combination of the two? Why? I think this is something that needs to be looked into. It’s been like this for decades. At what point do they say “Wow, why do we always lose & how can we fix it?”

    I would say it’s because the facilities (or lack of) but that actually has nothing to do with it, it’s the people at fault. I refuse to keep congratulating Dominica in sports, when all they do is lose. You don’t deserve praise just for taking part.

      @Dominican Bwoi
      This regime has largely abandoned sports and the youths of the country..They turned playing fields into dump sites, and in other cases put structures next to the playing fields rendering them smaller.
