On Sunday at Jamaica's East Kingston Stadium, Real Hope FA played against Suriname's SV Robinhood for his final chance to qualify for the CONCACAF League. Kowsky Sainvil's side lost 3-1 in the penalty shoot-out after a draw (1-1).
Unrecognizable throughout the CFU Championship, the leader of the opening round of the National Championship misses again his international campaign and will not see the CONCACAF League. Last year, the rhinos were eliminated prematurely and this year, despite this chance to play a play-off against a Surinam team, the capes did not take advantage.
Dunel Blaise of the head had responded to the SV Robinhood opener in the 33rd minute although the team played less after the exclusion of Johnson Jeudy. In the second half, Edmondo Dorvilus's team-mates had the opportunity to make the score even worse, as the center referee awarded a penalty for the youngest Monegasque team to a foul on Widlin Bruno, which unfortunately Roody Jodeph missed.

Hero of the evening with his many saves that kept Real Hope alive in this match, Luis Valendi Odelus could not do anything in the penalty shootouts since the Haitian shooters showed a lot of deficiencies because only Spencer Desire turned his share on the 4 attempts.
Denilson Pierre, Wendy Saint-Felix, Widlin Bruno have all missed their shots against a goalkeeper in a state of grace and facing a Robinhood team that was excellent in the exercise (3-1).
Real Hope goes out the back door in this competition. On the other side, SV Robinhood will represent the Caribbean with AS Capoise and the Waterhouse at the CONCACAF League starting next July.
