YOUNG BULLDOGS FAIL TO SCORE AGAINST ANTILLES

Nov. 11, 2001 – In under 12 soccer play Saturday afternoon at the Coral Bay Ballfield, the visiting Antilles School team trounced the St. John Bulldogs, 10-0.
Leading the scoring for Antilles was Christos Dimopoulos with four goals. Rahim Benjamin and Hayden Mitchell each had two. Ernie Evans and Madison Van Heurck each contributed one.
Saturday's game was the fourth on the new V.I. American Youth Soccer Organization schedule that will culminate with a Thanksgiving Tournament, according to Neal Sullivan, AYSO assistant commissioner. The holiday tournament, will played on St. Thomas and will feature all-star and off island teams, Sullivan said.
St. John also has three other youth teams in development — in the under 10, under 8 and under 6 age brackets. So far, they haven't played any league ganes.
The Bulldogs' loss Saturday gave them an 0-4 record in the league play that began Oct. 13. "They have improved, and they can do better," Oswin Louis, their coach, said. "We're just beginning, and the other team was much better. The important thing is that they enjoyed themselves and they learned sportsmanship."
Trip Dunville, Antilles coach, attributed his team's sucess to hard work and maintaining possession of the ball throughout the game.
Sullivan said the St. John AYSO will be winding down its inaugural season next Saturday for the U-6, U-8 and U-10 soccer development program. Planned for Sunday in Coral Bay is a U-12 boys' game between St. John and Antilles (2) and a U-13 girls' contest between the St. John and St. Thomas teams. Play is to start 2:30 p.m., he said.
"Registration for the St. John AYSO spring season will be announced in December," Sullivan said. "We hope to add more players and teams to the program."
