The victorious Dominica team

The Dominica national football team defied all odds, stunned its critics and shattered the hopes of St. Vincent & the Grenadines in their quest for a Gold Cup spot.

Before this, their final game at home, Dominica had been beaten at home and away to Suriname, Nicaragua and also to St. Vincent.

Needing a draw or a win to ensure that they advanced to the Gold Cup, St. Vincent found a Dominica team fully energized before a crowd of 400 hundred cheering on the home team.

However, Julian wade failed to find the back of the net on several occasions despite getting many easy chances.

The first half ended goal-less and as usual, many Dominicans expected the team to go down yet again. The second half saw a rejuvenated St. Vincent team fighting to get that goal and tempers at times flared causing referee Ricangel De Leca from Aruba to issue a few yellow cards.

Dominica then brought in the young Audel Laville in the 68th minute for Travist Joseph and almost immediately, things changed. A combination of Julian Wade on the left side of the field of play together with Donan Jervier and Sidney Lockhart gave Laville his first touch of the ball in the 71st minute and his right-footed blast rocketed at the back of the net giving the Vincentian goalkeeper Dwaine Sandy no chance. The crowd went wild – Dominica 1, St. Vincent nil. It was also the first goal for Laville in the tournament and he became the youngest player to score in that competition.

St. Vincent made a few changes and dug deep looking for that equalizer and or the winning goal but Dominica held firm in defense until the final whistle came, winning 1 goal to nil.

The search has been called off for the victims of a plane crash which occurred in the sea off Marigot on Sunday 16th February 2020.

Earlier reports indicated that the French-registered aircraft, which was carrying 4 persons, had taken off at about 6:43 pm from the Douglas-Charles Airport destined for Le Raizet Airport in Guadeloupe.

“Investigations continue into that missing plane; the police have recovered some debris but we have not recovered any bodies,” Police Chief Daniel Carbon said at a news conference recently. “The search has been called off.”

Meantime, carbon said no arrests have been made following a recent shooting incident which occurred in Picard, Portsmouth at 11:00 pm on February 4th 2020, resulting in the death of a Chinese national.

The deceased is Zing Jian Yong, a 49-year-old male residing at Picard, Portsmouth.

“We are investigating that matter. We have pursued every lead that we had intensively. We brought in a number of suspects and interviewed them and investigations continue,” Carbon revealed. “We have not made any arrests or charged anyone for this crime.”

The police chief condemned this incident and called on the general public to provide the police with any information or evidence to help to bring the criminal/criminals to justice.

“We have been getting some tips but we have not yet solved it,” he said. “I have a strong feeling that we might solve this crime, but again the information and evidence are out there…there must be somebody who knows what happened, who did it.”
