Dominica levels 2-game friendly football series with St. Lucia

Lone goal scorer for Dominica
Dominica wins by a penalty

The Dominica national football team bounced back to beat St. Lucia by 1 goal to- nil to level their two-match friendly series at one game each.

Randolph Peltier scored the lone goal from the penalty spot in the fifth minute of the second half, to secure Dominica’s first victory in about eight football games at the National Stadium.

In the first half  of play, Dominica created a number of good scoring opportunities but failed to convert . The national team missed a great opportunity when a shot at goal attempted from close range by Randolph Peltier, was saved by St. Lucia’s goalkeeper.

Dominica scored an early penalty in the second half of play but when Briel Thomas was sent off the field after receiving his second yellow card of the match, the national team was forced to finish the game with only ten players.

St Lucia continued to attack Dominica for most of the last twenty minutes of play but some good defending from Hubert Prince, Delbert Dailey and one brilliant save from the goalkeeper, Elijah Toulon saved the day for the home team.

Congratulations are in order for the Dominica team but observers believe that a lot more has to be done to improve the standard of football at the national senior team level.

    I watched the game today and I thing the Dominican national team did a very good job. They were the attacking opponent most of the time and the team worked very nicely. I can only say that Dominicans can be proud of the team presented and they would qualify very nicely in any competition. What seems to be lacking is a coordination and playing experience among the players. I had a wonderful time at the stadium but I was missing was the encouragement from the supporters. GO DOMINICA and a lot of screeming and sheeering by the watchers of the game. Think about the premier league in the UK or France for that matter. By the way, I am European and a big football fan. So for next match, practice more in the cheering of the team. That helps.
