Nathan Ferrari and Dudley O'Shaughnessy will comprise a two-member boxing team from St Lucia set to contest the 2019 Caribbean Boxing Championships, which begins on Monday, December 9, in Trinidad and Tobago.

Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy has come out in support of new St Lucia Cricket Association President Carol Henry, who on Saturday unseated incumbent Julian Charles, who led the association for a decade.

Montserrat have qualified for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup playoffs after posting a 1-0 win over Saint Lucia in Group B of League B of the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League on Tuesday night at the Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, Saint Lucia.

The result vaulted Montserrat into second place in the group over the Dominican Republic.

Montserrat started strong as they pressured the Saint Lucia defence in hopes of a first-half goal.

Their efforts would be handsomely rewarded in the 35’ when Joseph Taylor curled in a perfect cross from the right-wing and a surging Nathan Pond smacked the header into goal for a 1-0 Montserrat lead.

Saint Lucia had a chance themselves in the first half through Antonio Joseph but was unable to finish. They then had a second great look at goal in the second half in the 69’ through Jevick McFarlane, but the striker could not land his shot on target.

Montserrat GK Corrin Brooks, who was excellent against El Salvador on Saturday, then became a hero for the visitors with a massive stop on a Kieran Monlouis shot in the 88’ to secure the clean sheet win for Montserrat.

Digicel and the National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today (Wednesday, October 23) that the top 14 boys and girls from the Digicel NBA Jumpstart Elite Camp, held in Trinidad and Tobago from July 20-21, will participate in the Digicel NBA Jumpstart’s NBA Experience in New York from October 30 – November 4.

Jamaica’s senior women’s football team continued its impressive showing in Group B of the Caribbean Olympic Qualifying Stage by thrashing St Lucia 11-0 on Sunday night at the National Stadium in Kingston.

Captain Khadija Shaw and Deneisha Blackwood led the Reggae Girlz with three goals apiece.

Shaw handed the Reggae Girlz the lead in the second minute before completing her hattrick in the 16th and 34th minutes.

Blackwood found the back of the net in the 24th, 68th and 78th minutes.

Cheyna Matthews, Dominique Bond Flasza, Tiffany Cameron, Trudi Carter, and Tarania Clarke secured the other goals.

The victory represents the third straight for the Reggae Girlz in the five-team qualifying tournament being staged in Jamaica.

The three games have produced 30 goals for the Reggae Girlz ahead of their final game on Tuesday against the US Virgin Islands.

The Reggae Girlz opened their campaign with a 12-1 victory against Cuba on September 30 followed by a 7-0 triumph against Barbados on October 4.

When the first week of Concacaf Nations League Qualifying was completed, one of the most eye-catching results was Saint Lucia’s 3-0 triumph at Antigua and Barbuda. 

Using their speed and quickness, Saint Lucia broke out for three goals in the second half against the Benna Boyz to pocket the victory, setting the tone for a solid CNLQ campaign that ended with a 2W-1D-1L record. 

Leading the way for Saint Lucia was Jevick Mcfarlane, who scored in that win at Antigua and Barbuda before bagging a brace in the week four 3-2 victory over Aruba. 

Yet it was in defeat that best showed Saint Lucia’s emergence on the Concacaf scene, when they gave eventual 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup semifinalists Haiti everything that could handle in a narrow 2-1 defeat. 

But it is not just Macfarlane who strikes fear into the hearts of opposing defenses. Flying winger Pernel Williams will cause plenty of headaches, which is bad news for League B, Group B opponents El Salvador, Montserrat and the Dominican Republic. 

Saint Lucia’s Nations League journey begins with the toughest contest of them all: a trip to the always-difficult Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador to take on El Salvador. 

Yet after stunning Antigua and Barbuda in week one of the CNLQ, Saint Lucia will have the belief that they can pull off another eye-catching victory and rise that to a first-place finish in the group.

The St Lucia Zouks will replace the St Lucia Stars for the 2019 CPL season following the recent termination of the participation agreement with the company operating the Stars franchise.

World champion Alia Atkinson believes there is a lot of swimming talent in the Caribbean but a lack of confidence is holding it back. She hopes to unleash this talent with swimming clinics like the one she hosted in St. Lucia with young swimmers last week Thursday and Friday, April 25 and 26.

Julian Charles, President of the St Lucia Cricket Association, has said there was no need for change in the CWI administration because, after years of struggle, Windies cricket is finally heading in the right direction.

Windies assistant coach Vasbert Drakes says the team is looking forward to the start of the third Test against England in St. Lucia on Saturday.

On the eve of the third and final Test against England, fast bowler Shannon Gabriel is hoping for a bounty of wickets on a St. Lucia pitch that has been good to him in the past.

The economic impact of the Caribbean Premier League reporting on the countries hosting matches continues to see steady growth, according to figures released by the CPL on Thursday.

Opening bat Rashada Williams is the only new player named to a Windies Women squad named for a two-week camp in Antigua as they prepare for their upcoming tour of Pakistan later this month.

On the heels of news that Jamaica could lose its Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise to another Caribbean island, information released by CPL suggests that more people are watching the annual T20 league than ever before.
