Poor Bajans

Barbados, with striker Riviere Williams missing at least four goal-scoring chances, gave a disappointing display to lose their first Digicel Caribbean Cup football friendly international 2-0 against Dominica at the National Stadium last night.
Dominica, ranked 178th in the world, way below Barbados at 121, scored both their goals in the first half through Curlson Benjamin (24th) and Mitchel Joseph (38th) as Barbados did not start with a full-strength line-up, handing senior caps to six first-timers.
The teams will meet in a second friendly at 8 p.m. today after the National Under-17 team play the Grand Masters, comprising former national players such as Adrian Hall, Wayne O’neale, Llewellyn Riley, Gregory “Lalu” Goodridge and Wayne Sobers at 6 p.m.
