Na­tion­al de­fend­er Cur­tis Gon­za­les scored a rare goal to earn De­fence Force a come-from-be­hind 2-1 win over San Juan Jabloteh to re­gain top spot in the 12-team Di­vi­sion One stand­ing of the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Football Tour­na­ment at Lar­ry Gomes Sta­di­um, Mal­abar, Ari­ma on Wednes­day.

Jabloteh, win­ners of three of their first four match­es, took the 28th minute via for­mer na­tion­al youth team strik­er Jodel Brown which his team took in­to the half-time in­ter­val.

Ten min­utes in­to the sec­ond half, Aaron Lester got the "Teteron Men" lev­el and with eight min­utes left in the con­test, Gon­za­les fired in the win­ner for De­fence Force to move to 16 points from six match­es, one more than un­beat­en Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA, who have a match in hand.
