Late addition Martinique are now the champions of the Windward Island Women Tournament which was held at the Windsor Park Stadium in Dominica from June 15th-19th. Martinique were invited to participate in the tournament after St Lucia and Grenada pulled out for financial reasons.
They defeated Dominica 5-0 on Sunday, June 19th making it Dominica’s 2nd defeat as Dominica lost 3-0 to St. Vincent in the opening match of that tournament.
Both Martinique and St Vincent & the Grenadines ended the tournament on four points, with Martinique capturing the title on a better goal difference. At the closing ceremony, Martinique walked away with (3) three individual awards to include best defender, best midfielder and best striker. St Vincent & the Grenadines got best goalkeeper and MVP of the tournament.
The women are not the only ones who were unable to register a win as the Dominica Men’s Under 20 Football Team lost their 3rd straight match 4-2 to St Kitts and as a result they were knocked out of the CFU Men’s U-20 Qualifiers. In their first two matches the boys lost 2-1 to Jamaica and 3-0 to the Dominican Republic.
