Trinidad and Tobago's senior footballers completed a 2-1 victory over
Grenada's senior team before an enthusiastic crowd of 3,000 at Queen's
Park Stadium Saturday night.
The winning goal was scored by skipper Angus Eve when he tapped home
from close range in the 83rd minute.
T&T scored its opening goal in the 7th minute through Nigel Pierre. Following a good build up which started from the right back with Brent Sancho, a number of swift short passes were made just on the edge of the penalty box before Pierre got possession and neatly sent a right-footed lob over goalkeeper Alvin Felix.
Ten minutes later, Grenada equalised when goalkeeper Ross Russell parried
a shot off a freekick inside the 18-metre box and Ashley Cyrus pounced
on the rebound from close range to shoot home.
Pierre had another good look at goal in the 38th minute but his effort
was cleared on the line by Anthony Modeste.
T&T had another good opportunity to increase the lead in the final minute when Eve sent a perfect cross from the left for Dennis Lawrence. But his header was blocked on the goal line.
T&T team - Ross Russell, Dennis Lawrence, Addison Belfon, Shurland
David, Stokely Mason, Brent Sancho, Reynold Carrington, Dale Saunders (Adrian
Narine 70th), Angus Eve, Nigel Pierre (Rolston James 79th), Gary Glasgow
