Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, Vide Boutielle – September 24, 2016: Fresh on the heels of being crowned champions of the VSADC CAPRISUN Youth Football Festival Valley Soccer Academy entertained visiting Northern United in a one-off friendly in preparation for the upcoming ECFH-LUCELEC Youth Football Tournament.
In near perfect conditions on a lush green surface Northern United dominated the first half scoring 3 goals to Valley Soccer Academy’s 1.
On the resumption of play VSA’s talisman Rio Longville struck in the first minute to reduce the deficit. Throughout the second half both coaches made good use of the bench, in the process ensuring all the players got time on the field. This is very commendable. When the final whistle blew the teams were tied at 5 all. Goals for VSA came from Rio Longville with a hat trick, Marcus John and Denyl JnBaptiste.
The management of VSA thanks Northern United for their spirited performance, and looks forward to similar friendlies in the near future.
