FC San­ta Rosa has been clos­ing in on its sec­ond T&T Su­per League ti­tle with just two round of match­es to be played.

On Sat­ur­day, the team nick­named the 'Big Can­nons' opened up a three-point mar­gin on its clos­est ri­vals Queen's Park Crick­et Club (QPCC) fol­low­ing a con­vinc­ing 5-1 thrash­ing of Prison Ser­vices FC at the Ari­ma Velo­drome, tak­ing it fur­ther in the lead to 54 points in 23 match­es.

Queen's Park, the on­ly team ca­pa­ble of catch­ing San­ta Rosa, gave them­selves a shot in the leg the day af­ter (Sun­day) by drop­ping two valid points in a 2-2 tie with the de­fend­ing cham­pi­on team Guaya Unit­ed at St Mary's Col­lege Ground in St Clair.

How­ev­er, at the Velo­drome, the home team made sure of max­i­mum points cour­tesy a dou­ble from in­stru­men­tal strik­er Keron Clarke in the space of two min­utes, 92nd and 93rd.

How­ev­er, it was the vis­i­tors who scored first when Nathan Julien found the nets in the 31st minute. There­after, it was all San­ta Rosa with Noel Williams find­ing the equalis­er in the 56th minute. Sev­en­teen min­utes lat­er the home team took the lead and ex­tend­ed it in the space of a minute. First An­dre Ram­per­sad found the back of the net in the 73rd minute to knot the scores up, and be­fore the Prison Ser­vice's de­fence could have re­grouped, Ryan Stew­art added an­oth­er for a 3-1 ad­van­tage.

With the loss, the Pris­ons' of­fi­cers main­tained third on the stand­ings with 44 points. At St Clair 'the Parkites' had to come from be­hind to share the points with Guaya. They got goals from Bene­dict Bar­rett in the 74th and De­von Mod­este in the 84th.

Guaya, the 2017 cham­pi­on team is dis­tant fourth on the stand­ings with 39 points, scored through Ke­ston Fron­tin (39th) and Glen­ton Wolfe on the stroke of half-time.

San­ta Rosa will next face Met­al X Erin F.C on Sat­ur­day at the Erin Recre­ation Ground from 6 pm, while the Parkites will jump in­to ac­tion a day lat­er at the Knowles Street Recre­ation Ground in Curepe against RSSR FC from 3:30 pm.
