Just one flick away and Barbados still couldn’t get that ever elusive medal at the ongoing Central American and Caribbean Games, as the men’s hockey team lost two leads and their subsequent bronze medal match against hosts Mexico in a heart-breaking 5-4 penalty shootout loss.

It was the cap to an extremely depressing day of action, which also saw medal hopefuls Darian King and Karen Meakins fall by the wayside in their respective tennis and squash singles encounters.

But nothing could be more tragic than hockey’s last-second stunner as Barbados were just three minutes away from securing bronze after clinging to a 1-0 lead. (JM)
