NASL veteran scores twice in San Francisco's come-from-behind victory.  NEW YORK (April 10, 2017) - The San Francisco Deltas are officially off the mark. The newest North American Soccer League (NASL) club claimed its first victory at Kezar Stadium on Saturday night, and Tom Heinemann played a starring role in the historic triumph.
Trinidad and Tobago recorded mixed results last month which left its campaign to play in soccer’s premier global tournament, the 2018 World Cup, still alive, but struggling. The Soca Warriors entered their third match in the six-team final round of qualifiers for CONCACAF, which features countries from North and Central America and the Caribbean, without a point after two games. They managed to beat Panama 1-0 on Mar. 24 in Trinidad, but lost to Mexico by the same score four days later.
Five Caribbean countries now know who and where they’ll play in the group stages of this summer’s Gold Cup in the United States. Following the draw last month Jamaica, which reached the final of soccer’s premier international tournament for countries in the Caribbean, North and Central America (CONCACAF), was placed in Group C, where the Reggae Boyz will face Mexico, which beat them in the 2015 Gold Cup final.
The 2017 international outdoor track season shifts into high gear this month with the staging of the IAAF World Relays April 22 and 23 in Nassau, The Bahamas. Track powerhouse nations, including several from the Caribbean, plus the United States, Europe and Africa, are set to compete in a variety of events ranging from 4x100 to 4x800 meters at the T. Robinson Stadium in a preview of this year’s World Championships in Athletics.
HOUSTON, Texas - A Hollywood smile still comes easily to Andre “L.A.” Lewis. Still, it masks a bruising journey the Jamaican’s professional soccer career has taken so far in North America. For Lewis, so much had been expected for such a long time, it’s hard to believe he’s still only 22. His fairy tale run kicked off as a top player at St. George’s College, at that time the best high school team in the Caribbean island. That earned him a starring role at the 2011 FIFA Under-17 World Cup – where he scored a spectacular goal against France - and a call-up to the senior Reggae Boyz World Cup qualifying squad.
