The club from St. Marc gained a total of $12,000(US) as every club participating in the Super 8 received an additional $2,000(US).
Moment of jubilation for Baltimore SC during the Super 8 trophy ceremony
The pressure coming into the match was squarely on Baltimore SC, since Racing Club Haïtien was another Port-au-Prince based club. However Baltimore SC got on the scoreboard as early as the 9th minute thanks to Decius Dumel.
The match referee was soon to be confronted by Racing Club Haïtien players
As soon as the second half started, it was Racing Club Haïtien that showed a greater offensive inclination as they desperately tried to level up the score. As Baltimore SC tried their best to defend their lead, they couldn't stop Brisfil Louisdon from setting up a cross for Cadeus Mickenberg to make a beautiful header past goalkeeper Henry Philogène 14 minutes into the second half to tie up the match.
Baltimore SC forward, Teddy Saget received the Super 8 Best Striker award
Baltimore SC were not shaken by the noise of the Racing Club Haïtien crowd as they went back on the attack, trying to earn a game winner. The club from St. Marc did get a goal in net but it was disallowed by the match referee forcing the match into extra time. The pivotal part of the penalty shootout came when Baltimore SC goalkeeper Henry Philogène stopped the shot taken by Frantzy Jerome. Certain league achievements were acknowledged during the Super 8 trophy ceremony as Best Defender award went to Bruny Pierre Richard of Don Bosco, Brunel Fucien of Aigle Noir won the Player of The Year award, Oscaldo Jérémie of AS Mirebalais finished the season as the league's highest scorer while Baltimore SC's Teddy Saget won the Best Striker award for the Super 8 competition.

According to the media, forward Éliphène Cadet, having played only 1 season with ASC, will be heading to Venezuela to play for Trujillanos FC. The Venezuelan premier league club is currently competing in the Copa Maltin Polar Apertura. (http://www.lavinotinto.com/detalle_noticia.php?id_categoria=44&id=12557). Tempete FC is another club interested in signing Cadet and adding the Haitian international forward to their lineup.
Le Nouvelliste reported that Baltimore SC forward, Décius Dumel, has received an offer to tryout for a club in Italy and as well as another one in Peru. If he chooses to go to Italy, he would have to wait till june when the tryouts will be held. (http://www.lenouvelliste.com/article.php?PubID=1&ArticleID=39479&PubDate=2007-01-23) Dumel scored 4 goals for Baltimore SC in their 2 group B matches during their Caribbean Football Union Club Championship campaign including a hat trick against Curaçao league club, Union Deportivo Banda Abou.
In Chile, our own half-Haitian has come back to the country--Jean Beausejour. He was in Belgium until December, but decided to come back as he was barely playing for the reserves (of KAA Gent, I believe).
He signed for Cobreloa, and they're playing in the Copa Libertadores this year (South America's CL).
I will keep you guys posted!
Argentina's River Plate signs Aveska
Haiti's U-20 team captain, Judelin Aveska, has left Racing Club Haïtien after he recently signed with Argentine club, River Plate. Aveska is now the second Haitian player under the age of 20 currently signed with a club in the Argentine League after his teammate, Sony Nordé, had signed with Boca Juniors. It is still unknown to whether Aveska will be placed on the senior or youth squad as is Nordé.

Has he already played for for the Chilean nt?
(He is listed as Chilean in Cobreloa's roster and Haiti unfortunately does not recognize dual citizenship. Apparently, he is no longer available to play for us. That's a danm shame. If Chile has enough good players, it would be a good thing for us to try out Jean Andre Emmanuel Beausejour, who is only 19. The guy may be a good player.)
He's def. older than 19. I think about 25-26.
And yea, unfortunately, he has played for our NT, though right now he would have a lot trouble breaking into the top30 in terms of possible players for the CA, much less the starting 11. His dad is Haitian as I recall (doctor, resides here in the States), but Jean himself grew up in Chile. In fact, he's native Chilean (araucano).
Thanks, metro. Are there many black chileans? I have never met one. Ironically, I met a black Argentino once. I assumed he was a Brazilian living in Argentina. He actually told me that wasn't the case. His family history goes back to colonial time.
Native black chileans: there are none.
However, there are blacks in Chile.
I think we probably have the most homogenous population amongst Latin-American countries.
And IIRC, Beausejour was the 1st black player to represent our Senior NT.
Thanks again, metro.
I think right now we have the biggest military presence in Haiti, as well.
And our links do even deeper, as L'Ouverture actually met with Bernardo O'Higgins (our equivalent to L'Ouverture).
No, sir. Did they really meet? When and where? I know Miranda and Bolivar received military and financial aids from Haiti for their fights against Spain. But, I had no idea that general O'Higgins actually went to Haiti. Was he in the mission that met president Petion? Educate me on that.
I vaguely recall reading that L'Ouverture had sought help from O'Higgins (as well as Bolivar as you mentioned). Don't remember whether they met personally exactly.
Unfortunately, those two great men never met. The young O'Higgins came back to Chile in 1802, the same year the older Toussaint L'Ouverture was sent to jail in France. However, since O'Higgins was forced to leave Chile around 1817 and formed alliances with other independentists, it's possible that he accompanied Simon Bolivar to Haiti to meet with President Petion, another legend in Haiti's history. Also, notice that Miranda, a close friend of O'Higgins, also met with Dessalines in the early 1800's. So, it is possible that O'Higgins met Haitian leaders. However, it's unlikely that he met Toussaint Louverture.
The New Digicel Ouverture 2007 season kicks off, Cavaly and Zénith Start At the Top
The new league season has officially kicked off as the Championnat National de Première Division got underway last saturday with a match between Racing Club Haïtien and Violette AC, the biggest league rivalry in Haïti.
At Stade Sylvio Cator in Port-au-Prince, the 2 league giants played to a 1:1 draw in front of a mostly Racing Club Haïtien fan base. After a scoreless first half, Violette AC drew first blood thanks to a goal by Frederic Simon in the 68th minute. Unfortunately for the visitors, their lead was short-lived as the Haïtian International James Marcelin struck back for Racing Club Haïtien 6 minutes later.

During postgame interviews, Violette AC's manager Wébens Princimé expressed much disappointment in his squad's first half performance mentioning that they came out playing too timidly. Racing Club Haïtien's manager has promised the fans of Port-au-Prince that the club will have a positive result against Racing des Gonaïves tomorrow night despite the fact that the match will be played at Parc Vincent in downtown Gonaïves.

Alexandre Bourcicault: Strong Interest from RSC Anderlecht
Haitian correspondent, Julio Midy, has reported that Haitian International Alexandre Bourcicault has been involved in talks of a possible trade to Belgium Champions, RSC Anderlecht, after his performance in Haiti's first round match with Guadeloupe. Negotiations between RSC Anderlecht and Bourcicault's current club, Violette AC, will be in progress at a later time and if signed Bourcicault would most likely head for Europe after the Gold Cup.
Bonne chance a lui et aussi a la selection nationale demain soir.
I was just curious to find out what the payscale was like on the Haitian league. I ask because it seems a lot of money seems to have been invested (specially from the private sector) and the stadiums look nice, etc, etc...How would the pay rate compare to other Caribbean countries, for instance?
Not very much!
Between 1OO and 3OO$ US
