Trinidad & Tobago and St Lucia earn Commonwealth gold
The men's and women's competitions drew to a close in The Bahamas on Saturday.
Trinidad and Tobago and St Lucia picked up the first beach soccer gold medals at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, The Bahamas on Saturday.
In the sport’s first appearance at the competition, the fourth and final day saw the medals distributed in both the men’s and women’s competitions.
The women’s final took place first at the National Beach Soccer Arena at Malcolm Park as Trinidad and Tobago edged a thrilling contest against Jamaica 6-5.
Despite trailing their Jamaican counterparts 4-0 early in the second period, an Adana Phillip hat-trick - including a winner 14 seconds from time time - ensured Trinidad the title before the men’s final brought the beach soccer to a close.
It proved a more one-sided affair than the women’s finale as four goals from St Lucia’s Linus Clovis earned his side a 6-2 success against Trinidad & Tobago.
Both nations will now go down as the first beach soccer gold medal winners in the competition’s history while there were mixed fortunes for hosts The Bahamas in the third-place play-offs.
While the Bahamian men’s team edged Antigua and Barbuda 5-4 to claim bronze, their female compatriots lost 3-1 against the Turks and Caicos Islands.
