Risc Takers victorious in St. Martin warm up

risc_1SANDY GROUND—The Risc Takers Under 15 squad won the St. Martin Football Federation Cup Monday. Takers faced Junior Stars in the final and won on a penalty shoot-out. The match ended in a 2-2 draw.

"It was a team effort,' said coach Sandro Garcia. In the penalty shoot-out our keeper Andre Knol blocked three shots."

The proud coach continued, "Our captain, Knol's older brother, Leonardo, scored the winning penalty."

Garcia also had praise for striker Jaeremi Drijvers who scored both of the regulation time goals.

"It was a beautiful game," said Garcia. He was particularly proud of a set piece penalty that netted the team one goal. Three of the athletes formed a triangle around the ball. The whistle sounded. The player on the left facing the goal ran toward and then over the ball. The player on the right ran to the left and over the ball. The centre striker rushed forward and passed the ball to the player on the right who crossed the ball behind the wall to Drijvers who had jumped over the ball and continued behind the wall.

"We had just practiced that," said Garcia. "The boys executed the play better than they did in practice."

The shot has already been posted on YouTube and can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nS1MWLYtiDk&feature=youtu.be.

The competition featured six teams including Juventus, St. Louis, FC Marigot, Flamingo, Juniors Stars and Risc Takers and was a warm up for the regular season competition set to kick off later this month.

The Risc Takers team consisted of Diaro Forsythe, Leonardo Knol, Andre Knol, Charlie Taylor, Simon Speetjens, Rohan Longville, Matthew Dookie, Kael Richards, Denzel Burleson, EzekielGumbs, Vivik Sabnani, Jaylen Constance, Jadon Gumbs, Jaeremi Drijvers, Naeco Drijvers andReynaldo Eugenio. The Takers coaching staff consists of Garcia, Peter Suwijn, Roberto Acuna and Darry Stuart.

"The St. Martin Football Federation has to be commended," said Garcia. It was a good competition and a nice way to prepare for the season."
