Bajan men, women stun Guyanese
Date November 09, 2007 Compliments of the Nation News
THE BARBADOS men's and women's teams went on a goal spree in their opening matches of the Pan American Hockey Federation's inaugural Caribbean Cup in Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday.
Playing at the National Hockey Centre in Tacarigua, the Bajan lasses blanked Guyana 5-0 in the first match of the tournament.
The Barbadian men were also off to a good start, cruising to a 4-0 victory over Guyana.
Trinidad and Tobago men's hockey team were the biggest winners, thrashing Jamaica 9-0. The win helped avenge an opening day defeat for the Trinidadian women, who were edged 2-1 by Jamaica.
Patricia Borneo had given the hosts a 19th minute lead but goals from Shana-Kay Tullonge and Dadreann Clarke gave the Reggae Girls an unlikely win as Trinidad and Tobago failed to cash in on a flurry of penalty corners.
But the Trinidad and Tobago men stole the show in the night-cap match, romping to a 3-0 lead after only ten minutes with two successful penalty corners from inspirational captain Kwandwane Browne and a neat finish from Akim Toussaint.
Germany-based forward Wayne Leggerton scored a hat-trick, including one
from a penalty stroke while Toussaint got a second and Mickel Pierre and
Piers Evan Farrell chipped in with a goal each. (EZS)
