Une defaite lourde pour Haiti-A heavy Defeat for Haiti

St Kitts-Nevis wins Group D in the CFU Olympic Qualifying Tournament in an exhilarating game with Haiti. Team St Kitts-Nevis needed to win the game in order to move on to the other group stage of the tournament while Haiti needed at least a draw or win.

Within the opening minutes of the game team Haiti showed their dominance with several shots to the St Kitts-Nevis goalkeeper Julani Archibald. Archibald was able to dismiss most of the attempts until Gerald Edwards sent the ball sailing pass the goalkeeper into the back of the net in the 36th minute. The goal placed Haiti in the winning position and placed pressure on the St Kitts Nevis team. At the end of the first half the score line was 1-0 in favour of Haiti.

The second half of the game was a renewed game for St Kitts-Nevis as they continued to press into the Haitian half. The constant pressure of the St Kitts-Nevis team lead to a goal in the 79th minute with a kick from Devaughn Elliot into the box with several attackers and defenders resulting to an own goal from Johnny Joseph in an attempt to clear the ball. The goal was the equalizer and gave renewed energy to the St Kitts-Nevis team. With less than 3 minutes left in regulation time a free kick across from Devaughn Elliot yet again would prove beneficial for St Kitts Nevis as the ball sailed pass the goalkeeper for the second and winning goal for St Kitts-Nevis.

As the minutes dissipated Haiti could only hope to equalize with desperate shots to goal. Their attempts were denied by the talented Julani Archibald. As the final whistle blew the stadium erupted with screams and chants.

St Kitts Nevis is now set to move on to the next group stage of the tournament. Teams that have already qualified are St Kitts-Nevis, Cuba and Trinidad. There is still Group A to be played which consists of Suriname, Jamaica, Cayman Islands and St Vincent & The Grenadines
Earlier in the evening Antigua & Barbuda defeated St Lucia 2-1.
