The Trinidad and Tobago Under-21 football team tamely surrendered their CAC qualifying match to Haiti in a 3-1 loss, which saw them exit the competition at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar, yesterday. The hosts of the three-team Group Two entered the game confident they could get past the visitors to move onto the next round, but even in a must-win situation, they could not raise their game enough to get the desired result.

The young "Soca Warriors" started the brighter of the two teams when the opening whistle blew, but seemed to have lost their fight when staring defeat in the face in the form of a 3-0 deficit at the interval.

The first promising move of the match came in the ninth minute, when Hayden Tinto only just failed to control the looping cross sent from the left of the Haiti 18-metre box by Kevon Neaves, his header going awry.

Then, against the run of play, Haiti went in front in the 17th minute. T&T custodian Hasely Holder dived low to claim a pass on the ground, but the ball slipped from his hands and landed at the feet of Rood Kelly Jean. The Haitian striker rounded Holder, to easily slot into an open net.

Tinto, coming up the right wing, twice put the ball just wide of far post, in the 19th, and then again in the 23rd minute. But the opening item helped the visitors to settle and they doubled their advantage in the 37th.

Kelly Jean collected a cross on the right from a free-kick and had sufficient room to control and curl past Holder for his second goal. Three minutes later Haiti added another for good measure, Fritzson Jean Baptiste spotting Holder off his line and, from outside the 18-metre area, chipping over the hapless T&T goalie for a 3-0 halftime lead.

By then T&T were out of the match, despite fighting performances by wingers Tinto and Neaves. The latter saw his 65th minute free kick from 23 metres out hit the left upright, and then another effort sail over a few minutes later. Holder, at the other end, was relieved to see efforts by Jean Baptiste and Etienne Yveson whizz past his far post.

With the clock winding down and the outcome of the match already decided, Shane Calderon gave T&T a consolation item, slotting home from close range to breach the defence of Occenat Peterson for the first time in Haiti's two matches. By then, though, it was too little, too late to help T&T's cause.

(CFU) Under-21 Group Two qualifier : Haitians crush Young Trinidad Warriors 3-1

JOEL BAILEY 2006-04-05 02:26 (updated 2006-04-05 06:07)

HAITI inflicted a 3-1 spanking on Trinidad and Tobago yesterday to seal a spot in the 2006 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Colombia.

Action was in the final round-robin match of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-21 Group Two qualifier at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Arima.

Trinidad and Tobago made wholesale changes to the squad that drew 1-1 with Dominica on Friday, with Akile Edwards, Kendall Jagdeosingh, Jason Devenish, Josimar Belgrave and Shane Calderon replacing Marcelle Francois, Ancil Farrier, Yohance Marshall, Clevon George and Abiola Sandy respectively.

Haiti, on the other hand, fielded an unchanged team that thrashed the Dominicans 5-0 two days earlier. With Kevon Neaves and Jagdeosingh on the left, the national team tried their best in the early stages to open up the Haitian defence, to get the ball ahead to the speedy pair of Judah Hernandez and Calderon.

Against the run of play, Haiti went ahead in the 16th when a tame pass up front by Etienne Yveson was horrendously spilled by a sliding Thorne Holder, with a lurking Rood Kelly Jean tapping in the loose ball into the open net.

But the Haitians, playing with more passion, energy and purpose, silenced the estimated 2,500 crowd with another item in the 37th, as Yveson?s pass on the left found Fritzon Jean Baptiste in the middle, who simply teed up an unmarked Kelly Jean inside the penalty box to slam home past a stranded Holder.

The die was cast two minutes later when the quartet of Edwards, Jagdeosingh, Karlon Murray and captain Makan Hislop, in the back, stood like statues as Jean Baptiste collected a ball from the middle and calmly lobbed the bemused TT keeper.

Even as national coach Leo Beenhakker and his assistants Whim Rijsbergen and Anton Corneal looked on in the stands, the TT Under-21s seemed to lack cohesion, aggression and composure, especially in midfield as Devenish and Belgrave were non-factors while Hayden Tinto was hardly utilised on the right.

Devenish was substituted at halftime for striker Keston Alexander, in a three-man strike attack, but the visitors almost netted their fourth when Yveson, with his last kick of the match, sent a right-sided freekick inches over the bar.

The national players were unable to mount any constructive attacks on goal, or even string more than five passes together, and it was no surprise when Abiola Sandy replaced an ineffective Belgrave early in the second half.

The Haitians were always quicker to the ball than their opponents and they simply maintained ball possession, as they watched the hosts crumble to defeat, despite a stoppage time item from Calderon, slotting home from close range after a left-sided centre from Edwards.
