Trinidad 23 - BVI 0
Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday : newsday.co.tt :
TT slaughter BVI 23-0
By JOEL BAILEY Thursday, July 26 2012
BRENT SAM netted seven goals while Kishun Seecharan and Jabari Mitchell each contributed hattricks as Trinidad and Tobago registered one of their most lopsided victories in football history, a 23-0 slaughter of the British Virgin Islands on Tuesday evening.
Action was in Group Four of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-17 Qualifying Tournament, which kicked off at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.
Trinidad and Tobago got the scoreboard started in the ninth minute, when right-back Shannon Gomez made a run down the flank, saw his shot parried by goalkeeper Akeem Pope, and Sam laid off the ball to Andre Fortune to hit home from close range.
Gomez and Seecharan played a one-two before Gomez found Mitchell to drill his shot into the back of the net in the 12th minute. The floodgates were open, and Sam teed up Seecharan to open his account in the 18th, while Mitchell broke the offside trap in the 24th minute and squared to Sam to get his name on the scoresheet.
Fortune, an American-born midfielder, set up Sam (29th) and Seecharan (31st), while Akeem Garcia atoned for earlier misses with TT’s seventh in the 36th.
Sam completed his hat-trick in the 38th, again from a Fortune feed, while right-winger Seecharan followed suit in the 41st, after a pass from Gomez down the flanks.
TT went into the half-time interval at 10-0 following Mitchell’s second item in the 43rd, tapping into an open net after Sam dummied a pass from left-back Maurice Ford. Captain Brendon Creed got in the act in the 48th, with a penalty after Gomez was tripped by Allon Williams, before Mitchell completed his treble following a ball from Garcia in the 50th.
Substitute Matthew Woo Ling set up Sam to score in the 54th, while Woo Ling netted in the 57th following a pass from Seecharan. Sam then got three goals in a row – finishing off a good move by Garcia in the 61st, tapping home after neat work by Seecharan’s replacement Aikim Andrews in the 70th and slamming home a right footer in the 71st.
The centre-forward came off for Weah Adams in the 74th but the TT attacks remained unrelenting, as Creed converted his second penalty in the 76th after Williams pushed a goalbound Mitchell.
Andrews hit a pair of long-range drives from the right, in the 77th and 80th, while Adams found the back of the net in the 82nd. Centre-back Martieon Watson, who hardly touched the ball at all, bundled home from close range after Pope made a meal of Garcia’s freekick in the 84th.
And Adams ended the goal-scoring bombardment in the 88th. Suriname kicked off their campaign in Group Four with a well-deserved 3-1 win over neighbours Guyana.

Unfortunately, the BVI doesn't have the population to be as competitive as TnT.
