The Trinidad and Tobago under-15 water polo boys lost their title to Jamaica at the National Stadium Pool in Kingston, Jamaica on Easter Monday.

After playing a hard fought game, T&T lost the gold medal game to Jamaica by 11 goals to 12.

T&T held an early lead which was whittled down by Jamaica. The game was not without its events as some calls made by the officials were questioned by the T&T bench.

With two key players fouled out, T&T fought hard against a determined team and a partisan crowd. Regulation time ended


In overtime, T&T pressed hard to seal the game but it was Jamaica who scored first. Both teams concentrated on defence and T&T eventually equalised, setting up a thrilling finale. But in the end Jamaica scored a last goal with one minute and 20 seconds left.
