Bajans settle for U-19 silver


Share post:

BARBADOS’ UNDER-19 BOYS had to settle for silver in CARIFTA water polo after they were defeated by arch rivals Trinidad and Tobago 24-14 when the regional event climaxed on Sunday night at the Aquatic Centre.

The first strike in the opening 30 seconds of play by Xavier Smith-Taylor deceived the subdued Bajan fans, who were outshouted in the stands as their players were outmuscled, outswum and outshot by the faster and more physical Trinis.

Nathan James scored a remarkable eight goals, including back-to-back penalties in the second quarter, which gave Barbados hopes of a serious challenge.

However, whenever the Bajans scored, T& T struck back with their aggressive players often stripping the Barbadians and then outpacing them to bombard the goal.
