The first part of the D1 National Championship ended on Sunday, June 9th at Parc Saint-Victor where the Archeloise team collected their first national trophy in history against Real Hope ( 1-1), after winning the first leg (1-0) at home. Throughout this first round, Haiti-Tempo journalists have followed the teams and, it is time to concoct our top 26 players who shone brightly with their team and vibrated fans of the ball. There was a lot of competition, but our choices will be on performance and statistics. It should be noted that the numbering does not mean anything, we left the guards to get to the line of attack.
1- Guerry Romondt (Arcahaie FC)
Passed by the Haitian Racing Club , ASSL, FCIA and FC Tempête, the Haitian international goalkeeper has just won his 4th national championship title. Guerry Romondt achieved 63% clean sheets with only 9 goals out of the 16 games he played.
2- Luis Valendi Odélus (Real Hope)
Real Hope concocted 9 wins the opening series with Valendi Odélus in goals. The former goalkeeper of the Black Eagle has kept his clean sheet 8 times. Performances judged insufficient by Marc Collat or the FHF since he is not selected to play the Gold Cup with the National Eleven.
3- Marc Saul Saint-Fleur (AS Capois)
Marc Saul Saint- Fleur is having a good season. During his eleven caps with AS Capoise, he lost only once, yet he played three games last year.

8- Dunel Blaise (Real Hope)
His absence said everything against Arcahaie in the final. He played 16 games, this is one of the elements that pushed the formation capoise until the final.
9- Huguens Michel (AS Capoise)
The chief of defense of the ASC has played a good first half of the season. If the Old Capois Rooster lost only two of the 16 games that Michel played, we could say that the fault was not because he was not guilty.
10- Wendy St. Felix (Real Hope)
The right side of Real Hope has given everything in his hallway. He has been on top and is one of the best at this position in the D1. Wendy has always been tenured by her coach (17 times).
11- Billy Annacius (Arcahaie FC)
Billy seems to assert himself as one of the masterpieces of Gabriel Michel's device. Often present from the outset of offensive actions, the left side is also valuable at the conclusion.
12- Hervé Joseph (Don Bosco FC)
Hervé Joseph played 76% of Don Bosco's matches. The left side Pétion-Villois showed some nice things that allowed him to be important in his corridor throughout this series.
13- Markenley Louis (AS Capoise)
Very present on the right side of the ASC, the capois game was made when the ball passed by his feet. Totally impregnable by his opponents, Markenley created many opportunities in his 11 games played.
14- Cliffort Thomas (Arcahaie FC)
In 16 games played in the heat opening, Clifford Thomas participated in 7 of the 8 victories of his team.
Very present in the midst of archelois, his caviars count a lot in the realization of the dream of a whole popoulation.
15- Eliader Dorlus (Don Bosco )
The Don Bosco player has highlighted his technical quality, his dribbling, passes and set pieces. With six goals scored as midfielder, he was phenomenal.
16- Yvener Noël (AS Capoise)
With a physical impact all his own during his performances since last year, the a native of Port-de-Paix has amalgamated his physique and technique to win most duels against bigger opponents who exceed his size.
17- Jeff Fanis (FC Storm)
Since its integration at Wilfrid Montilas, we noticed that there was a total change in the middle of Storm FC. He was very good in 11 games that he could play.
18- Olnick Alezy (Arcahaie FC)
It is nicknamed “Fabregas”, Alezy held the house as it should. He was up to his status defensively and offensively with muscular interventions when needed. In 20 games played and 3 goals scored for the AFC, he pays the luxury of taking a few heads and being dangerous at his centers or set pieces. It can be said that he greatly contributed to the sesame of the Archelois.
19- Johnny José Parima Rodriguez (Violette AC)
In the midst of the Violetists, the Venezuelan 21-year-old naturalized Haitian, imposed with evidence. He has clearly passed a course, evolving to a higher level; being called to an Olympic team. For his 13 games played with the Violette, he did not take long to start his first season in D1 and find the right tempo.
20- Dutherson Clerveaux (Cavaly AS)
Twirling in 13 games of national championship with the Cavaly, He is one of the players to have shown the full extent of their ability. Dutherson has always put his opponents in trouble. It must be said that his efforts end up paying because he will play the Gold Cup with the national team.
21- Elyvens Dejean (Don Bosco)
By finishing as the fifth best scorer of the championship, the young promising of 22 years of age participated greatly in the first part of Don Bosco
22- Steeven Saba (Violette)
It was not without rhyme and reason that Marc Collat summoned him in 2018 for the first time while he was evolving in D2. The Violette AC midfielder has convinced many observers against Chile in friendly. One has the impression that it can quickly become a true solution in the midfield thanks to his combativeness and his technique in the transmission of the passes. But while waiting for the selection, we had noticed all this with the old tiger for this opening series where he played for 10 times including 8 starts for 1 goal.
23- Dumy Fédé (Tempete FC )
Dumy Fede obviously has his place in this Top 26. He ends the season as one of the best gunners of the D1. The FC Storm striker was decisive in 7 goals, taking part in 50% of goals scored in the league by his club.
24- Schneider Desamours (Real Hope)
Exactly effective in 213 minutes among his playing time for Real Hope, Desamours caught our attention. With 7 goals scored, he surprised everyone and won the right to be part of our Top 26.
25- Louis Orlando Adéma (FICA)
He dropped a little but was consistent this season with FICA. With his 5 goals scored to finish in 4th place in the top scorer's standings, he posted, at several moments, a great potential; by his impact and his ability to break the enemy's defenses.
26- Attison Charleston (AS Mirebalais)
His case may well animate the debates. The AS Mirebalais player was quite disappointing, but he finished among the top scorers with 4 goals and that deserves to be rewarded.
