Canada Defeats Grenada 6-0 to Win Group C

Canadian Head Coach Stephen Hart

Ottawa, ON – Canada’s Men’s U15 National Team continued its torrid scoring pace at this year’s Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Youth Cup by casting aside Grenada 6-0 this evening at the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Tobago. The young Canadians scored all six goals in the opening forty-five minutes against their CONCACAF counterparts and with the victory grab the top spot in Group C.

Canada’s Marcus Johnstone, making his first appearance of the tournament, did not take long to stamp his mark on the event when he slid home Canada’s first of the match and the eventual game-winner four minutes into the contest.

A Grenada own goal doubled the lead three minutes after Johnstone’s opener. An unfortunate deflection left the Grenada keeper stranded and helpless to deny the Canucks from stretching the lead.

But when Devin Gunenc and Mohammed Sylla then grabbed another two in two minutes (13, 15) and Antonio Rago converted a well-deserved penalty in minute 22, there was no way back for the Grenadians. When Sylla scored his second of the night and third of the tournament just before the half, the Canadians knew the three points were theirs.

Canadian goalkeeper Karam Shergill, also making his first appearance of the tournament, earned the shut out. Canada’s second in as many games.

‘We played a very balanced first half today,’ said Canadian Head Coach Stephen Hart. ‘In the second half we moved the ball very well but poor finishing and good goalkeeping kept the score down. All said, we are playing well but the boys are struggling with the extreme heat.’

Canada will play St. Lucia at 11:00 am on August 7 in its final match of the opening round. St. Lucia has yet to secure a point in the first round and have been quite porous at the back, surrendering thirteen goals in two matches. Canada on the other hand has scored fifteen goals while Shergill and Kyle Buxton have not leaked a goal in 180 minutes.
