Peltier hat trick puts Trinidad past Barbados 4-0

Lester Peltier scored a hat trick to lead Trinidad and Tobago

past Barbados 4-0 in a World Cup qualifier Tuesday.

Hughton Hector also scored for Trinidad, which bounced back from

a surprising 2-1 loss to Bermuda on Friday.

Peltier, who entered with only one international goal, got off

to a fast start and kept pressuring Barbados. The 23-year-old

scored in the seventh minute, then added two more in the second

half at Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Hector finished the scoring in the 88th minute, taking advantage

of a defensive error by Barbados.

With one qualifying spot available, the Soca Warriors are

competing with Guyana for the lead in Group B.
