T&T whips Bahamas 3-0.

5-Sept-2003 - NASSAU — Trinidad and Tobago’s Under-23s struck all their goals in the second half as they whipped Bahamas 3-0 in the opening game of its two-match Olympic qualifying first round tie on Friday night.
Substitutes Michael Lee-Celestine and Kendal Davis gave the visitors a 2-0 advantage, and Andre Toussaint added a third four minutes from the end as T&T triumphed in front of about 900 fans at the Bahamas FA National Stadium.
The return game was set for the same venue yesterday afternoon.
Trinidad and Tobago was dominant from the start but had difficulty piercing an ultra defensive strategy employed by the Bahamians.
Celestine, a half-time substitute headed in a cross from the right side to give T&T a 62nd minute lead before Davis scored in the 78th minute, eight minutes after he entered the game.
Toussaint of Joe Public, last year’s T&T Professional Football League (PFL) “Player of the Year,” completed the scoring in the 86th minute as the visitors claimed a handsome advantage going into yesterday’s return match.
