USVI Soccer U-17 Boys Lose to Puerto Rico

The U.S Virgin Islands Soccer Association’s (USVISA) Under 17 Boys’ first match of the 2022 Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) Championship Qualifiers ended with a loss.  The winning glory goes to Puerto Rico with a 16-0 finish.  The boys played hard, and made some attempts to get forward into their opponent’s half, but to no avail.

A red card in the second half gave an added blow to the defensive efforts.  Puerto Rico was a bit more developed, composed and faster on the pitch, which allowed them to control the tempo of the match.

In the second match of the USVI’s Group B, Aruba clinched a 2-1 win over Martinique.

The Young Dashing Eagles’ next match day is at 9 a.m., Friday, Sept. 2, with Aruba.  Watch the games live at the CONCACAF app, Facebook page or YouTube channel.
