Saint Lucia ended their CONCACAF Under-17 campaign winless, falling to Caribbean neighbours and regional champions Haiti 4-1 on Thursday night at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
In an encounter featuring previously eliminated sides, Saint Lucia took a 1-0 lead in the first minute only to see the Caribbean champion reply with four unanswered goals.
Piaye Secondary's Noah 'Lucky' Nicholas opened the scoring just 53 seconds after the opening whistle, intercepting a Haitian square pass played just above its own penalty area and firing home with his right foot from 14 yards out.
But Saint Lucia's defending let them down again, and Ronaldo Damus scored three goals inside the first half, two of them completely unmarked. The Haitians added a fourth in the second half and Haiti secured its only Group B points.
Saint Lucia got off seven shots, whilst the Haitians ended with 11.
