Beach soccer team lose 1-4 to The Bahamas

Guyana got off to the worst possible start in the 2017 CONCACAF Beach Soccer Championships losing to hosts The Bahamas 1-4 Monday at the Malcolm Beach Soccer Facility.

Lesley St. Fleur led the way for the hosts with a hat-trick while Kyle Williams netted the fourth goal. On target in the loss was Deshawn Joseph.

St. Fleur gave the home side the lead in the fourth minute compliments of an over headed kick from GE left of the box, after controlling the ball with his chest and his back to goal.

The Bahamas increased their lead two minutes onward with St. Fleur recording his second via a powerful right foot penalty strike into the roof of the net, giving the Guyanese goalkeeper no chance.

St. Fleur completed a deserved hat-trick in the 26th minute in identical fashion to his first conversion, compliments of an overhead kick with his back to the goal into the lower right corner.

Guyana eventually pulled one back in the 30th minute as Joseph raced down the left side before unleashing a powerful shot into the lower left corner of the net.

However, Williams completed the rout two minutes later for the locals, directing his diving header into the right corner, after collecting a cross from the left side ahead of a challenging defender.

Up to press time, Guyana was battling Jamaica. The Guyanese will face-off with Belize today at the same venue in their final group fixture.  Belize opened their campaign with a 2-0 win over Jamaica on penalty kicks after regulation and extra time ended 5-5.
