Barbados U1-9 versus Cederbrae Collegiate (Canada)
The Barbados U-19 team recently faced off in a series of matches against opposition from Cederbrae Collegiate out of Canada.
The first game was a closely contested, low-scoring affair, with the young Bajans running out 12-7 winners despite playing most of the match with one or two players off the field for various infractions.
The second game played two days later saw a reversal in fortunes, with the Canadian coming out on top with a score of 34-27 in a testy 12-a-side affair.
With all to play for in the third and final match, the Bajan lads pulled out all of the stops to lead 19-0 at the half, with Man-of-the-Match, Zayn Nicholson, scoring a solo effort in addition to marshaling his less experienced teammates. The final score of 33-17 came as very satisfying result to coach Dennis Hargreaves, who blooded 8 new players this season.
