Fixtures were released to clubs in early July. They were not released publicly because there are still applications from teams to join still pending. Also, there was consideration that Mahaica Oval and Irwin Park may be used if they were completed on time, which is now the case.

I suspect if they continue like this the Super League will eventually surpass them as T&T's number one.

My advise to the Super League organizers, they should be able to compete in the CFU and Concacaf cups.

And what makes it nice is, the SL also field Tobago teams.

Knights inks two-year deal with Caledonia AIA in T&T Pro-League
Guyana Chronicle


KAREEM Knights, the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) midfield player, recently signed a two-year deal with Trinidad and Tobago Pro-League club Caledonia AIA. Though the details of the move are not known, Knights will now join his National U-23 teammates Dominic Garnett and Pernell Schultz at the Morvant/Laventille-based club, owned by Guyana’s senior National Men’s head coach Jamaal Shabazz.

“I’m just happy be to here; it’s my first time with a pro team, among players who played World Cup, MLS and other big leagues across the world,” Knights told Chronicle Sport yesterday.

The 18-year-old, who also played at the Fruta Conquerors Club, said the move to Caledonia AIA is the start for him to realise his dream of playing professional football and his intention is to “shine in the TT Pro-League”.

“It feels like home to me even though I’m in a new community among players from other countries. My Guyanese teammates have me as their younger brother guiding me and advising me how to approach things when necessary,” Knights said.

He added, “I’ve been following along the line with them, going through every session, developing on my weakness and building my confidence in order to snap myself into the level that the pro league is being played at.”

Knights has represented Guyana at the U-17, U-20 and most recently at the U-23 level but his ambition is to cement his spot on the Senior National Team.

Would love to know whether the Pro league schedule will be changed so as to ensure that this league is active or just completed before the Concacaf club championships start. If there are Caribbean qualifiers months earlier then maybe there should be some arrangements that T&T teams participating will not be adversely affected in terms of participation at full strength in the Proleague. Maybe a scheduling break for the team that has to go to Suriname or whereever to play. Teams like Comunicaciones and LA Galaxy are in full stride from an active local league while Central FC and W Connection are rusty having not played for months.  This topic has been raised before but where is the follow up?

Bailey gets his wish
By Renaldo Gilkes (Barbados Nation)


YOUNG national footballer Ranaldo Bailey is testament to the saying “perseverance seldom fails”. - See more

After having to turn down a chance to fulfill his dream of playing professional football a month ago, due to reasons off the pitch, the 19-year-old centre back has signed his first professional contract. Bailey has signed for Trinidad and Tobago Pro League club Morvant Caledonia United for the upcoming 2015-2016 season. Bailey recently returned from Northern Ireland disappointed and frustrated that he could not accept the contract offered by Northern Ireland Premiership club Ballymena F.C due to the club’s financial situation, but the humble young man said he never gave up the fight and knew that God would pave a way for him to achieve his goals.

Heard about this player from a reliable source ... The source spoke with a measure of confidence that indicated this player would do well. Got the impression he would have found a better situation than this (no disrespect to de Caledonia massive, dahis reality).

Source indicated there were two players. Wonder what has become of the other.

Playing in NI was a punt of a non-starter to begin with. Even the NI doh really want to play there.

The article about Kareem Knights refers to Jamal Shabazz as an "owner". True or false? Merely asking in light of contemporaneous revelations regarding who owns/does not own Central.

Increased $$ incentives as Digicel Pro League 2015-2016 launched.
ttproleague.com.


The $1 million champions’ prize isn’t the only cash incentive for competing teams in the 2015-2016 Digicel Pro League which was officially launched on Friday morning at the VIP Lounge of the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

This season, clubs will also have the chance of vying for $50,000 – a 66 percent increase from last season’s $30,000 – awarded to the winning team in each of the three rounds of the DPL which honours fallen heroes Rawle Fletcher, Akeem Adams and Kevon Carter.

Also, new to the DPL which will end in May 2016, a Player of Round, for each of the three rounds, will receive $10,000.

The main prize money scheme will again award the DPL champions $1,000,000 while the runners-up and third-place finishers will receive $300,000 and $150,000, respectively. Teams finishing in positions fourth to tenth will receive $130,000.

Turning away from the monetary rewards and trophies on offer, Julia Baptiste, general secretary of the Pro League, told clubs, "Take your club to the next level; think professional."

The 2015-2016 DPL kicks off today (Friday) with last season’s third-place finishers Defence Force against last season’s cellar-placed finishers St. Ann’s Rangers from 6 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The Round One Match Day One schedule will continue on Saturday 26 September with last season’s DPL runners-up W Connection hosting Police FC from 4 pm at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium and simultaneously at the Larry Gomes Stadium, North East Stars will welcome debutants Club Sando.

Also on Saturday, defending DPL champions Central FC will visit Point Fortin Civic from 6 pm at the Mahaica Oval.

The weekend fixtures will culminate on Sunday 27 September with neighbouring rivals Morvant Caledonia United and San Juan Jabloteh clashing from 4 pm.

During his opening remarks, TT Pro League CEO Dexter Skeene called on players and clubs to not lose focus.

Skeene, a former Trinidad and Tobago footballer said, “Let’s us put aside self-doubt and frustration and continue no matter the obstacles to push for improvement in every single aspect of what we do on and off the field of play. We must be proud of the TT Pro League.”

Skeene also commended the longstanding support of title sponsor Digicel.

He said that Digicel has stood by the league's vision, players, coaches, board, management, fans and other corporate partners in fighting a noble cause, purpose and mission.

“There remain those in key decision making positions who continue to misunderstand what the TT Pro League, and what it is about in a place such as Trinidad and Tobago,” added Skeene.

“But the TT Pro League can stand proud, confident, notwithstanding at times hostile environment, our owners clubs and players and coaches continue to improve on the quality of football that is on display in the Digicel TT Pro League games and tournaments.

“No matter what, we are determined to make a positive difference in football and through football Trinidad and Tobago.”

Christopher Edmond, Digicel senior sponsorship officer, said Digicel’s partnership with the Pro League is part of the company’s commitment to football locally and internationally. He congratulated the Pro League on its positive reputation and said that Digicel fully understands the power of football.

De Silva double and assist earns Central 3-0 win over Civic.
ttproleague.com.


On Saturday, the pre-game hype was focused on Marcus Joseph, the 24-year-old ace striker making his first return to the Mahaica Oval since moving from hometown club Point Fortin Civic to Central FC in pre-season.

But it was his new teammates midfielder Sean de Silva and striker Willis Plaza that stole the show as Central FC walked away 3-0 winners – to the disappointment of the hundreds of Civic home supporters – following a very physical contest under the newly installed stadium lights at the Point Fortin venue.

Plaza opened the scoring in the first half before Sean de Silva made certain of victory with a second half brace to give the Digicel Pro League (DPL) champions a convincing start to their title defence.

“I knew we were three goals better than them (Civic),” said head coach Ross Russell after his first league match in charge of Central FC. “It was a gutsy performance by my guys. The game was a little rugged. It wasn’t as smooth as we normally play but my guys fought it out and got what they deserved.

“We could have scored more. Willis Plaza had a few that he missed. So 3-0 is a decent score for us.”

The result put Central, with a +3 goal-difference, at the top of the 2015-2016 DPL standings in Round One Match Day One, which will culminate on today (Sunday 27 September) with Morvant Caledonia United, equipped with former Civic goalie Marvin Phillip, against San Juan Jabloteh from 4 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

On Friday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, St. Ann’s Rangers held Defence Force, the former club of coach Russell, to a 1-1 draw; the same result last season’s runners-up W Connection were held on Saturday by Police at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium.

Andre Toussaint, one of four top players to leave Civic following last season, broke a deadlock in the 83rd minute for Connection but a minute later Police forward Makesi Lewis tied the scores 1-1.

Also on Saturday, North East Stars joined Central as the only other winning team thus far, after shutting out DPL newcomers, Club Sando, 2-0 at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

New signings Alanzo Adlam and Adrian Noel each scored a goal in the 17th and 59th minutes, respectively, to give new North East Stars head coach, Roland Clarke, a win his debut.

Later at the Mahaica Oval, Central grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute when Plaza struck low into the far netting, beating Civic debutant goalkeeper, Miles Goodman in a match marred by crunching tackles but produced just a few cautions from referee Cecile Hinds.

Plaza was clinical from inside the right of the box after being picked out on a pass from midfielder De Silva, who started the attack from his own half.

Plaza, the only player to score a goal in every match against Civic since last season, including a 1-0 win to secure 2014-2015 Round Two Akeem Adams Trophy in the clubs previous meeting at Mahaica on February 24, 2015, had further chances to double the tally but headed over in the 40th minute and onto the crossbar in the 60th minute.

Plaza’s other goals against Civic last season came in a 3-1 win on January 11, 2015 and in a 5-2 win on April 24, 2015. Club and T&T teammate Ataulla Guerra, who was left out of Saturday’s squad, had a three-goal tally in both matches.

Yesterday, Plaza showed determination by wrestling off his marker before playing a through ball, which allowed De Silva to advance into the box and slot low past an advancing Goodman for a 2-0 Central cushion in the 63rd minute.

De Silva, a two-time former Trinidad and Tobago Youth World Cup player, made it 3-0 on the 70th minute when he controlled a Joseph (M) freekick onto his chest before volleying into Goodman’s net to complete his double.

Even without another Central signing from Civic, defensive hardman Andre Ettienne, who was left out due to injury, Civic were unable really trouble the “Couva Sharks”’ defence and midfield, controlled by 40-year-old veteran playmaker, Marvin Oliver.

Despite being a torn in his former side, Joseph (M), a talented left-footed striker of the ball and Trinidad and Tobago footballer, was unable to find the back of the net.

Meanwhile Civic, who got within inches of goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams’ frame on a couple tries, had their closest attempt in the 84th minute when substitute Kerwin Stafford, a pre-season signing, troubled the crossbar from an angle on the right side.

“It’s our first game,” said Civic head coach Leroy De Leon. “We had some practice games before but not at this level. It’s not bad but we have some things to work on especially in the middle of the field and defensively. Our midfield was non-existent today for some reason. We also have to work on scoring goals but the real problem is the middle of the field. If the middle of the field is strong, then it takes the pressure off the defence.”

De Leon confessed that he was still in a mixing-and-matching stage with a number of new players in his squad but remains confident things will come into place.

“We’d be OK! We have a lot of players on the bench that didn’t get a chance today (Saturday). We are still mixing and matching. It’s early still, the first game, and eventually we would be there.”

De Leon, a Trinidad and Tobago football legend, added, “Central have been playing year-round, they were in CONCACAF, they are a team but we aren’t there yet.”

Central’s Russell, a two-time DPL champion coach at Defence Force, admitted that his side have the early edge due to their participation in the group stage of the 2015-2016 CONCACAF Champions League.

“It’s match sharpness,” said the Central coach. “We have five games on the trot already, high level games. We were more comfortable on the ball while Civic were now trying and it all has to do with game practice.

“The season (has) now started but we are coming off our highs in the CONCACAF within recent weeks. Now we are focused on (retaining) the league,” ended Russell, who believes his players still need to be more comfortable possessing the ball more.

Turncoats Edwards and Charles star as Jabloteh edge Morvant Caledonia.
ttproleague.com.


Even with a new name, a revamped squad, and the return of marquee player Densill Theobald, Morvant Caledonia United (MCU) kicked off their 2015-2016 campaign with a loss, while neighbouring rivals Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh joined defending Digicel Pro League champions Central FC and North East Stars in winners’ row on the weekend.

Jabloteh edged MCU 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at the Hasely Crawford Stadium courtesy goals from former Cale’ players Keyon Edwards and Tyrone Charles.

Both players were among six former MCU players in coach Keith Jeffrey’s starting Jabloteh line-up in the Round One Match Day One fixture of the Digicel Pro League.

While MCU, with Theobald, the 33-year-old Trinidad and Tobago 2006 World Cup player returning home following a stint in India with Royal Wahingdoh last season, was still short of inspiration against the class-act of Edwards.

The 31-year-old Edwards, who represented MCU up till last season, put the hurt on his former employers in the 27th minute when he volleyed past goalkeeper Marvin Phillip from a left side cross swung in by wingback and captain Damien Williams of Jamaica.

That first half lead, however, was short-lived.

Only two minutes later MCU veteran Kareem Joseph, occupying left-midfield instead of his usual full right-back, weaved his way past three defenders to find Sheldon Holder in the box and the Guyana international made no mistake in hitting past his former Cale’ club-mate and Grenada national team goalie, Shemel Louison to tie the scores 1-1.

But Louison was part of the happier side at the final whistle thanks to an 80th minute headed goal by 26-year-old Charles for a 2-1 Jabloteh win.

Charles, who had represented MCU in 2013-2014, capitalised on poor defending at the back-post. The former Central FC, St. Ann’s Rangers and North East Stars player met a deep Kennedy Hinkson free-kick to head past Phillip, who joined MCU in pre-season from Point Fortin Civic.

Jabloteh, winners of last season’s Toyota Classic and sixth-placed DPL finishers, had more looks on goal than their opponents but forward Jamal Gay, another former MCU signing, failed to trouble Phillip on three separate occasions and an earlier Charles’ free-kick flew just overbar.

Other former MCU players clad in the Jabloteh green were Nathan Lewis and Aquil Selby. They are among newcomers Ramone Mc Gregor, Ricardo Harriott, Jerome Mc Intyre, Hinkson and unused substitute Jordan Devonish.

While some new additions at last season’s second-from-bottom, MCU, includes Canadian-born brothers Daniel and Anthony Whyte, the latter in goalkeeping, Ronaldo Bailey (Barbados), Ordell Flemming (St. Kitts & Nevis), Otev Lawrence (St Lucia), Eugine Kirwan (Antigua & Barbuda), Jamaal Harvey (Guyana), Gregory President (St. Lucia), former Rangers midfielder Kennedy Isles (St. Kitts & Nevis) and former Defence Force winger Akeem Roach.

On Friday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Rangers held Defence Force to a 1-1 draw; the same result last season’s runners-up W Connection were held by on Saturday against Police at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium.

Also on Saturday, North East Stars defeated DPL newcomers, Club Sando, 2-0 at the Larry Gomes Stadium and Central overcame a physical contest to defeat Point Fortin Civic 3-0 at Mahaica Oval.

Now all ten Pro League clubs will turn their focus on the 2015 First Citizens Cup which will be launched on Monday 28 September to reveal the qualifier match-ups and quarterfinal round.

Central are two-time defending First Citizens Cup champions. The title was one of four major trophies – seven overall – captured by the "Couva Sharks" last season.

Eve seeks immediate revenge in DPL; Corbin, Toussaint and Delice could add the punch against Sando.
ttproleague.com.


St. Ann’s Rangers head coach Angus Eve seeks early revenge when his side hosts Club Sando from 6 pm on Tuesday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Round One Match Day Two of the Digicel Pro League (DPL) 2015-16.

It would be the second meeting between both sides in four days after the St. Ann’s outfit were booted out of the 2015 First Citizens Cup by a 3-1 loss at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin on Saturday, while winners Club Sando, led by former Rangers coach Anthony Streete, advanced to meet two-time defending champions Central FC in Friday’s semi-finals thanks to a hat-trick by Kevon “Showtime” Woodley.

Eve, who left out attacking players Kadeem Corbin, Josh Toussaint and Samuel Delice for disciplinary reasons, believes the trio can make a difference in Tuesday’s DPL clash.

“I’m a disciplinarian,” he said following Saturday’s defeat. “We had three players who missed training the day before. I don’t play players who miss training. They have no valid excuse. But those three players could come back into the team so we could have a bit more punch up front (against Sando on Tuesday).”

Nineteen-year-old Corbin, the star of Trinidad and Tobago's 2014 Caribbean Football Union Under-20 championship winning team has never seemed to settle since rising to stardom.

While a talented but infamous Samuel Delice has failed to produce the sort of promise he showed at Defence Force. Instead indiscipline seems to have the better of the player, who failed to calm during stints at Defence Force, Central FC and San Juan Jabloteh.

Not much is known personally about Josh Toussaint other than the midfielder has grown in ability over the years and could gain the much needed self-aggression with Eve at the helm.

Eve said that all three guys, just like many others within his squad, have a lot of potential. In the case of Corbin, who recently had trials in Holland and Finland, the new Rangers coach said the player “just needs to refocus himself because it’s sort of a let-down when you go out on trials and it doesn’t work out.”

On Saturday Eve started a lesser-known forward to the Pro League, 19-year-old former St. Anthony's College star Rasheed Simon.

Simon, who starred for his school side alongside Corbin, was passionate of his role and scored an excellent solo goal in the Rangers’ 3-1 loss. But lacked the stamina needed for the full duration of a 4 pm kick-off in the Mahaica Oval heat.

Kudos to the officials for allowing a one-minute rehydration break on the 35th minute mark for the wellbeing of players. But even that wasn't enough to cool the later disappointment for Rangers despite a creditable fight. In fact Woodley punished the St. Ann's club on every defensive lapse.

“It’s a learning process for some of these kids and sometimes it’s going to be a hard curve like it was today (against Sando),” said Eve, who led Rangers to a 1-1 draw with Defence Force in Round One Match Day One of the DPL on September 25.

Eve said Saturday’s game was worse that the performance against Defence Force. The Rangers coach said the lengthy break also broke the momentum of his team.

“But today (Saturday) we really just gave away three goals,” stated Eve. “It was down to individual mistakes. We passed the ball well and were in the game for the most part of it. But our guys are still learning. You are going to see a lot of these mistakes being made throughout the season. We already knew that coming in but we are hoping we can limit those mistakes, individual errors, and be a little more competitive as we were against Defence Force.”

Also on Tuesday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Morvant Caledonia United (MCU) and W Connection will meet from 8 pm in a preview of Friday’s semi-final clash.

MCU defeated Defence Force 2-1 on Sunday in the FCC quarter-finals while Connection got past Point Fortin Civic 3-1 on Saturday.

“We are finished with Army, now we are going to prepare for W Connection in the (FCC) semi-finals with Tuesday’s league match against them,” said MCU coach Jerry Moe. He also said that while Connection and MCU enjoy a good relationship, its business on the field of play.

Tuesday’s DPL action kicks off from 4 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium with North East Stars against Police FC, who were defeated 4-3 on penalty kicks by Central FC following a 2-2 draw in Sunday’s FCC quarter-finals.

Then from 6 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Central, also the defending league champions, will tackle Defence Force, and simultaneously at the Mahaica Oval, home side Civic will welcome San Juan Jabloteh.

Plaza goal earns Central draw on Russell’s first match against Army.
ttproleague.com.


Central unbeaten in seven; North East Stars and Police grab a point each in 8-goal feast

Willis Plaza scored from the penalty spot Tuesday to level Central FC to a thrilling 2-2 draw with Defence Force in Round One Match Day Two of the Digicel Pro League (DPL) championship 2015-16.

It was one of four drawn encounters while Point Fortin Civic stood the only winners of the day as the DPL took centre stage.

Civic defeated San Juan Jabloteh 2-0 with forwards Shackiel Henry and Jamille Boatswain getting on the scoresheet in the 50th and 84th minutes, respectively, at the Mahaica Oval.

But the day’s first match under the sunny afternoon at the Larry Gomes Stadium saw North East Stars and Police FC take a point each in an 8-goal feast.

North East Stars led 4-2 with 6 minutes of regular time after goals from Keron Cummings, Brendon Figuera, Duane Muckett and Dillon Jaggesar. But stoppage time goals from Kareem Freitas—his second on the day—and Anton Hutchinson earned the Lawmen a spectacular 4-4 comeback draw.

Jameel Perry had opened the scoring for Police’s first item.

Also settling for shared points were W Connection and Morvant Caledonia United (MCU), in a preview of Friday’s First Citizens Cup (FCC) semi-final, which saw them finish 1-1 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium following St. Ann’s Rangers 2-2 draw with Club Sando, the side that booted them out of the FCC last weekend.

Anthony Paris, who equalised for Sando in the 80th minute, scored again in stoppage time to salvage a point for the Pro League newcomers after Rangers defender Jelani Peters had a double of his own with goals in the 62th and 89th minutes.

It was a huge improvement from coach Angus Eve's Rangers which suffered a 3-1 loss to the same side three days ago.

In the second match at the Port of Spain venue, midfielder Jameel Neptune equalised in the 84th minute for MCU after Connection had taken the lead through midfielder Jomal Williams on the hour mark.

Down at the Ato Boldon Stadium, defending DPL champions Central, led this season by former two-time league winning coach of Defence Force, Ross Russell, had the go ahead goal in the 20th minute through forward Marcus Joseph—the pre-season signing completing a move which started from a free-kick for his first goal for the Couva Sharks.

But two minutes later, Defence Force tied the scores 1-1 when forward Kellon Serrette scored from close range after a failed attempt from a teammate in the six-yard area.

Firstly, it was a curious tactic by Defence Force coach Marvin Gordon, a former understudy to Russell, to start Serrette ahead of scoring ace Devorn Jorsling and Richard Roy, especially in their first match against each other.

Despite sharing a close friendship, tonight’s league clash was all business and Gordon’s choice of Serrette up front paid off with the equalising goal.

Defence Force later took to the half with a 2-1 lead, thanks to a goal in the 25th minute by veteran midfielder and team captain Jerwyn Balthazar, who found the far side of goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams netting following a defensive slack by the Couva Sharks.

Gordon’s side had the chance to add a further blow to Central on the hour mark but midfielder Kerry Joseph smashed his strike low and wide of goal from the penalty spot.

The soldiers won the penalty after a handball in the area by Central defender Jamal Jack, whose outstretched arm intercepted a right side corner. Referee Rashby Mc Phie had allowed play to continue temporarily but wisely consulted his assistant referee Dennis Changiah who waved for the infringement.

That missed effort haunted Defence Force in the 64th minute when Plaza converted from the spot to level Central 2-2, a score which stood at the end.

There was little chance for Defence Force goalie Sheldon Clarke against the in-form forward. However Clarke was brilliant on free-kicks, denying Central on free-kicks in the 50th and 68th minutes by Sean De Silva and Joseph (M), respectively.

As for Plaza, it was the Trinidad and Tobago international’s sixth goal in five matches but more importantly, it extended the Couva Sharks unbeaten run to seven matches in all competitions ahead of Friday’s semi-final round of the 2015 First Citizens Cup, where the two-time defending champions must face Club Sando from 8 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. W Connection and Morvant Caledonia United will do battle in semi-final one from 6 pm.

Referee Mc Phie had awarded the penalty kick after Defence Force defender Curtis Gonzales was ruled guilty of tripping goalward Kevon Villaroel to ground inside the box.

Gordon responded with the introduction of Roy, trading Serrette for the fresh legs of the former Toyota/Pro League Player of the Year. However Roy was only able to manage one strike on target in the 74th minute which Williams got to, then smashed wide from the resulting corner kick play.

Williams also made a crucial stop in stoppage time to blank Defence Force substitute Dave Long as coaches Russell and Gordon had to settle for a point a piece.

Good video.
I must say, I have been watching these shows "Field of Dreams" hosted by Steve David and also "Scoreboard" hosted by George Matheson.
All good and desperately needed on T&T TV. Steve David's show focusing only on football is excellent.
Very informative to hear the analysis by Skeene and Narada and Steve David's feeling of urgency to see results now rather than soon or later. All the episodes were informative. Next persons to be on the show should be:
Flex, Tallman, Hart, Angus Eve, Russell, possibly McComie again, experienced interviewees like Jan, then a few choice less experienced local players like Ball-pest, Plaza etc within a supporting panel to keep the conversation flowing.

Stars face former coach in Pro League action.
T&T Newsday Reports.


NORTH EAST Stars coach Roland Clarke said his players are fired up to meet the club’s former coach Angus Eve when they host St Ann’s Rangers from 4 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium today in Round One Match Day Three of the Digicel Pro League .

Clarke, now in his first stint as a coach of a Pro League team, said, “For me personally, it isn’t a grudge match.

But it is like a personal vendetta for some of the players. Their mind-set is that the game is an avenue for them to express their feelings for how they felt in the past three (seasons).” Clarke, who replaced Eve, at the end of the latter’s three-year contract, said he only learnt of the “grouse” after he took over the team for pre-season.

In 2012, Eve, a former assistant coach to Terry Fenwick at San Juan Jabloteh and to Michael Mc Comie at the now defunct Ma Pau SC, entered his first stint as Pro League coach and led the Sangre Grande-based club to the 2012 Toyota Classic and 2015 TT FA FA Trophy.

Clarke, although relatively unknown, believes he’s “no Johnny- come-lately.” The 50-year-old is a former assistant coach at North East Stars, and also had a spell as technical director of the club’s youth programme, as well as coach of the Reserve and Under-17 teams.

He was also a coach at Joe Public’s Super League and East Zone teams. At present, both North East Stars and Rangers are unbeaten after two League games, occupying second and seventh positions respectively.

North East Stars defeated Club Sando 2-0 and were held to a 4-4 draw with Police, while Rangers tied both their matches 1-1 and 2-2 against Defence Force and Club Sando, respectively.

“It’s about taking it one game at a time,” explained Clarke. “I have some work to do still. As I got deeper into it I realised there are certain weaknesses in the team. Already I am hearing the critics saying that North East Stars bring an exciting brand (of football). But it’s a long season and the players all know we need to continue working and improving.” Also today, defending champions and current leaders Central FC will tackle newcomers Club Sando, for a second time in five days, from 6 pm at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin.

This after the “Couva Sharks” defeated the former Super League champions 4-0 to reach the final of the First Citizens Cup on October 30 against Couva-rivals W Connection.

W Connection will also make the trip south and will face home side Point Fortin Civic from 8 pm at Mahaica Oval.

And in a simultaneous double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, Morvant Caledonia United and Police FC will face each other from 6 pm and Defence Force are against San Juan Jabloteh from 8 pm.

Central unbeaten in nine after eking out 1-0 league win over Sando.
ttproleague.com.


Teenaged forward Nicholas Dillon grabbed his first goal of the season with a second half strike last night (Tuesday) at the Mahaica Oval to earn defending champions Central FC a marginal 1-0 win over Club Sando in Round One Match Day Three Digicel Pro League (DPL) 2015-16.

The 18-year-old Dillon, who recently returned to Trinidad following a three-week trial at U.S. club Portland Timbers, scored in the 65th minute to give Central the match-winning item over the side they defeated five days ago, 4-0 in the semi-final round of the First Citizens Cup (FCC) 2015.

Despite the slim margin, it also meant a nine-game undefeated streak – in all competitions – for coach Ross Russell’s players ahead of Friday’s FCC final clash against Couva-rivals W Connection from 8 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Connection, last season’s DPL runners-up, were also in action at the Mahaica Oval last night but had to settle for a goalless draw against home side Point Fortin Civic in the second match of the venue’s double header.

Connection (3 points) are unbeaten in their last five games, in all competitions, but occupy sixth position on the league table after three draws in as many matches, while Civic (4 points) are fifth.

Central leads the table but only ahead of North East Stars (7 points) on a slim goal-difference, while Police FC and Defence Force, both with 5 points, are third and fourth respectively, following wins last night.

In the lone match contested at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Jomoul Francois scored a late winner to give North East Stars a 2-1 win over visiting St. Ann’s Rangers to take temporary lead.

Rangers, coached this season by former Stars’ coach Angus Eve, had equalised in the 75th minute through Kadeem Hutchinson after Neveal Hackshaw put the home side ahead in the 39th minute.

But Francois’ strike in the 86th minute snatched victory for North East Stars and their new coach this season, Roland Clarke.

In the day’s other games, hosted at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Police FC defeated Morvant Caledonia United 2-1 before Defence Force edged San Juan Jabloteh 1-0.

Police took the lead through Kareem Freitas, the forward netting his third league goal this season in the 16th minute.

However seconds before the stroke of half-time, MCU’s Guyanese international Sheldon Holder rifled the ball into the roof of goalkeeper Adrian Foncette’s net to tie the scores 1-1.

Police, who were denied numerous times by MCU goalkeeper Marvin Phillip, finally had the ball in the back of the Trinidad and Tobago shot-stopper’s net again in the 76th minute for the 2-1 win.

Forward Keon Wilson, who five minutes earlier replaced Jameel Perry, had picked MCU captain and wingback Kareem Joseph on the left before sending a perfect strike into Phillip’s far netting.

The Lawmen were unlucky not to score again five minutes from time when an effort from Christon Thomas rattled the crossbar.

And in keenly contested clash between Defence Force and Jabloteh, a 31st minute goal by Ross Russell Jr. gave Army their first league win this season after two opening draws.

Russell Jr. was at the right place at the right time to direct an Aklie Edwards effort into goalkeeper Raheem Belgrave’s net following a low corner into the area by Kerry Joseph.

Jabloteh had themselves to blame after wasting on two excellent scoring opportunities before the interval.

Nathan Lewis had goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke at his mercy in the 36th minute but the talented midfielder opted to square a pass in search of an oncoming Kennedy Hinkson, who failed to connect.

Lewis later won his side a penalty in the 45th minute after he was brought down by Clarke, however the Defence Force goalie redeemed himself with a superb diving save on his left to deny midfielder Keyon Edwards from the penalty spot.

Defence Force thought they too had won a penalty in the 64th minute when substitute Richard Roy was brought down at the edge of the six yard area in a one-on-one with goalkeeper Belgrave, however referee Crystal Sobers wasn’t convinced.

Instead, Defence Force had to settle for the three points by way of the slim 1-0 win in the end.

D/Force gets confidence booster but Central and Connection play to 1-1 draw ahead of crucial Toyota Clasico

North East Stars are the new leaders of the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 championship following events in south and central Trinidad on Tuesday.

In the first instance, North East Stars, previously tied on seven points with defending champions Central FC but second on goal-difference, defeated home-side Point Fortin Civic 2-1 in the lone fixture at the Mahaica Oval.

T&T international Keron Cummings put North East Stars in front in the 35th minute but that advantage was lost when Civic’s Kenwin Stafford levelled the scores in the 62nd minute.

However the visitors snatched all 3 points when wide attacking midfielder Jomoul Francois grabbed the winner in the 75th minute, an item that kept the Sangre Grande club, coached this season by first—time head coach Roland Clarke, unbeaten this term after four league games.

Then, in the second match of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Central were held to a late 1-1 draw by Couva-rivals W Connection, who they must also face on Sunday 29 November in Semi-Final Two of the Toyota Classic.

The result in Couva left North East Stars (3-1-0; 10 points) seated at the summit with a two-point lead, while Central (2-2-0; 8 points) dropped into third although tied on points with Defence Force (2-2-0; 8 points), who moved two spots up into second with a higher scoring rate, after a comprehensive 4-1 win over cellar-placed Club Sando (0-1-3; 1 point) in the earlier game.

“The aim was to win and move higher up the table,” said Defence Force defender Curtis Gonzales following the match. “We had the right attitude and got the result.”

Twenty-one-year-old Dominican defensive midfielder Briel Thomas was the hero for W Connection, snatching the equaliser in the 88th minute to salvage a point for W Connection, who remained unbeaten in the league but still winless after four games.

Briel’s glancing header off a left side Alvin Jones , which also beat a last ditched clearance effort on the line by Central’s Leston Paul, proved vital for the Stuart Charles-Fevrier-coached Connection, which only a month ago, edged the Couva Sharks 2-1 in the final of the First Citizens Cup.

Central had dominated the first half but only had a superb Willis Plaza goal to show for it.

Plaza superbly dinked goalkeeper Julani Archibald in the 22nd minute for a 1-0 Central lead after latching onto a perfectly timed Guerra pass inside the area.

It was a return of favour from Guerra who had struck the base of the upright in the 13th minute before Mitchell placed the rebound inches wide, all following brilliant move by Plaza, leaving a handful of Connection players in his path before finding Guerra at the edge of the box.

Plaza, who forced Archibald into a low save in the 15th minute and missed the target by inches in the 24th minute, had the ball in the back of the Connection net again in the 33rd minute from 20 yards out, but referee Rodphin Harris’ whistle was already sounded for a foul against the Couva Sharks.

There were loud shouts for penalty in the 38th minute when Plaza went down in the box after turning between two defenders as Connection escaped again.

Following the break Charles-Fevrier summoned the experience of Gerard Williams at the expense of Triston Hodge at centre-back and later replaced right-back Shannon Gomez with recent T&T national team call-up, teenager, Aikim Andrews and former Central FC forward Dwight Quintero for veteran attacker Andre Toussaint.

While Central FC head coach Ross Russell's main toss was Akeem “Battery” Benjamin into the mix, replacing Marcelle Francoius at the start of the second period, and lanky defender was impressive, adding fresh life to the Sharks back-line.

But from a deflected Quintero effort, Connection won the corner that provided the equalising goal.

Central protested the goal, some calling for a handball and others arguing that the ball didn’t cross the line. But referee Harris stuck to the decision of his first assistant Caleb Wales while Central players Paul and goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams were shown the yellow card during their protests.

After the game, W Connection assistant coach Earl Jean admitted, “Central came out and played a very good first half, they nullified us. They know our game is possession and they came out and did a very good job. You must give credit to them on the day for coming out and playing the way they did.

“After coach (Charles-Fevrier) had a chat with the guys (at half time) and made a few substitutions, our guys went back out and tried to play. I think we were just a bit timid today.

“But we must give credit to our boys, they came back and got us a (positive) result. Sometimes you have a poor game and 1-1 is a good result for us.”

Four minutes were allowed for stoppage-time, but even that failed to separate both sides who must face each other again Sunday on the knockout stage.

“It hurts to give up a goal in the 88th minute,” continued the Central FC coach. “It’s difficult for any coach after your players worked really hard for the victory. Kudos to my (Central FC) players because my team deserved to win today.

“We did a good job tonight. We did our homework on the last game we lost to them (Connection). Tonight the guys really stuck to the task. We could have scored more in the first half but muffed a lot of chances and it came back to haunt us in the end.

“Connection are a good team as well and at some time in the game they will get into it. They did for about 20 minutes trying to get a goal, then we took back control. Always when you are playing against a team like Connection, there will always be a spell where you will have to work in keeping them off your back.”

In the earlier match at the Couva venue, Russell’s son, Ross Russell Jr., celebrated a double in Defence Force’s 4-1 win over Sando as they look towards Sunday’s Toyota Classic Semi-Final One showdown with defending champions San Juan Jabloteh from 4 pm in Port of Spain.

Russell Jr., a former Trinidad and Tobago youth player latched onto a perfectly placed Sean Narcis pass over the top before hitting beyond Sando goalie Alexei Julien in the 53rd minute—the ball hitting the far upright before the ball entered the net.

Julien wasn’t as fortunate when a 29th minute strike from 26 yards out by Jelani Felix crashed off his upright and back into play before the rebound was eventually cleared out of danger.

But Sando’s trouble doubled in the 64th minute when Devorn Jorsling made it 2-0, capitalising on an errant clearance into his path at the middle of the area and striking a right-footer into the back of Julien’s net.

Substitute Kerry Joseph, just four minutes onto the field in the 72nd minute, made it 3-0 from close up when he completed an attack pointed by Jorsling.

Three minutes later Sando pulled a goal back when Teba Mc Knight’s header off a Devon Modeste cross defeated the outstretched glove of goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke for a 3-1 score.

But Russell Jr. restored his side’s three-goal advantage and completed his double for the 4-1 Defence Force win by the 88th minute.

It was a contrasting performance to last weekend’s slim 2-1 win over Super League side FC Santa Rosa in the quarter-final round of the Toyota Classic.

“It’s a great boost for us (ahead of the Toyota semi-finals) because our (previous) performance (against Santa Rosa) wasn’t a good one,” said Defence Force head coach Marvin Gordon after Tuesday’s league win. “To come and play like this tonight and scoring this amount of goals is great for the confidence of the team for the game on (semi-final against) Jabloteh.”

Gordon said his players didn’t show their professionalism against Santa Rosa, taking the Super League side for granted “because they are a lesser team.”

“I had a go at my players about it and tonight you would have seen a difference in performance,” added the Defence Force coach. “It was brilliant from me as coach to do what I did after the Santa Rosa game. I needed the players to understand what I expect from them every time they go out onto the field.”

Round One Match Day Four of the Digicel Pro League continues on Thursday with a double-header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. Morvant Caledonia United will tackle St. Ann’s Rangers from 6 pm followed by Police FC against San Juan Jabloteh from 8 pm.

Rangers win and Police rally to hold Jabloteh in 6-goal thriller.
ttproleague.com.


Last season it took St. Ann’s Rangers all of the 24 Digicel Pro League games before registering a win in the final match-day. But this this season, under the guidance of new coach Angus Eve, Rangers are celebrating a win and last term’s 5-point tally by their fourth league outing.

Experienced forward Sayid Freitas scored a first half brace to steer Rangers to a 2-1 victory over Morvant Caledonia United (MCU) in the first game of a double-header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium last night.

Then in the second game, a late double within a space of three minute from Police FC attacking midfielder Makesi Lewis saw the Lawmen battle back to a 3-3 draw with San Juan Jabloteh.

Jabloteh, who must tackle Defence Force in Sunday’s Toyota Classic semi-final round, had a 2-0 advantage into the break after netting early on within a space of seven minutes.

Even a double on the night from former Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 forward Jamal Gay, Jabloteh allowed maximum points to slip away.

Gay opened the scoring for Jabloteh in the 7th minute when he smashed a heeled Nathan Lewis pass into the roof of goalkeeper Adrian Foncette’s net.

The Keith Jeffrey-coached Jabloteh then doubled the advantage on the 13th minute when Lewis went from provider to scorer with a neat chip over an advancing Foncette from inside the box.

But a 25-yard rocket of a free-kick by Police captain Todd Ryan which cannoned off the far upright on the 45th minute signalled what was to follow in the second period.

Jabloteh were lucky not to concede an own goal in the 63rd minute when an attempted headed clearance by Aquil Selby sent the ball skidding off the top of goalkeeper Shemel Louison’s crossbar.

Police finally pulled a goal back five minutes later through Kareem Freitas, the younger brother of Rangers' double scorer Sayid Freitas.

Freitas (K) sent a low strike into Louison’s far bottom corner to reduce the deficit 1-2 following a free-kick into the area and short feed.

But Gay, showing good composure after latching onto a long ball forward by Caleb Sturge before attacking the area, executed a simple finish past Foncette on the 79th minute to restore Jabloteh’s two-goal lead with a 3-1 score.

Gay, who failed score on a golden opportunity in the 24th minute after Foncette got his glove to a Kaashif Thomas strike, failed to complete a hat-trick in the 83rd minute when he rolled an effort inches wide of the far post.

Jabloteh’s rued chances, including a stoppage-time effort from Jevon Morris which flew inches over, would stand to haunt the San Juan club in the end.

Makesi Lewis on the other end had stolen the show with a brilliant double, netting in the 85th and 87th minutes, to level Police 3-3, a result that kept coach Richard Hood’s side in fourth position with 6 points while Jabloteh on 4 points remained seventh.

Rangers meanwhile jumped three spots up the standings into fifth, an unfamiliar position for the side that finished bottom of the standings in recent years.

Freitas gave Rangers a 1-0 lead in the 16th minute when he converted from the spot, beating Caledonia goalkeeper Marvin Phillip after referee Keon Yorke awarded the penalty for a tackle by Shaquille Edwards which sent Sedale Mc Lean to ground inside the right of the area.

The 33-year-old former Police FC forward then completed his double on the 20th minute to give Rangers a 2-0 cushion.

Kevon Piper whipped in a perfect delivery from the right, and Freitas blasted in a left-footer on the second bite after Phillip’s outstretched arm got in the way of the forward’s initial attempt.

Freitas missed to later chances before the break, heading overbar from a right side Richard Williams’ free-kick in the 37th minute and seconds later hitting a right-footer wide.

But in the end, like a second half strike in Rangers’ only win last season achieved against Defence Force 2-1, his two goals on Thursday night proved vital for the St. Ann’s club after Caledonia pulled back a goal five minutes into the second period.

Caledonia, who had two failed attempts from Densill Theobald in the first half, got their item on the 50th minute when Sheldon Holder executed a cool finish past goalkeeper Christopher Biggette after Kennedy Isles’ cross from the right slipped through the defence.

In the end Caledonia remained winless after four league games and occupies ninth place with one point, the same as cellar-positioned Club Sando.

Seecharan shines as D/Force take marginal Pro League lead.
ttproleague.com.


Former Trinidad and Tobago Under-20 player Kishun Seecharan scored on either side of the break on Wednesday night as Defence Force bounced back from last Sunday's disappointing First Citizens Cup final defeat to whip Point Fortin Civic 5-1 in the Digicel Pro League (DPL).

The win pushed Defence Force up a spot to lead the DPL standings with 11 points but only ahead of Central FC (11 points) on goal-difference (+6 to +5), while previous leaders North East Stars (10 points) slipped two spots into third after a 3-0 defeat at W Connection.

Connection, who also defeated North East Stars 3-0 in the quarter-finals of the First Citizens Cup en route to lifting the title with a 4-0 over Defence Force in the final, hosted the Roland Clarke coached-Sangre Grande outfit in the first match of a Round One Match Day Five DPL double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Wednesday night.

Neil Benjamin Jr. opened the scoring in the 25th minute for the Stuart Charles-Fevrier coached-Connection before second half goals from Shahdon Winchester and Andre Toussaint in the 47th and 67th minutes, respectively, sealed the Savonetta Boys first win of the 2015-16 DPL while extending their undefeated streak to 12 games in all competitions.

In the second match at the Couva venue, defending DPL champions Central FC held off a resolute second-half performance by Police to win a 4-3 thriller.

The Couva Sharks scored three times in the first half with a goal each from Ataulla Guerra, Marcus Joseph and Elijah Manners in the 18th, 35th and 43rd minutes, respectively.

However Jason Marcano’s 65th minute goal proved crucial for the Ross Russell coached-Central after Police found the back of the net three times in the second half with a goal from Kareem Freitas in the 64th minute and a double from Makesi Lewis, who scored in the 78th and 90th minutes.

Up north, in the second clash of a double-header hosted at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Seecharan too was celebrating a double—and his came in Defence Force’s 5-1 victory over Civic after San Juan Jabloteh defeated St. Ann’s Rangers 2-0 in the earlier contest with second half goals from Tyrone Charles and Nathan Lewis in the 60th and 67th minutes, respectively.

Seecharan scored in the 18th and 55th minutes for the Marvin Gordon coached-Defence Force while teammates Jerwyn Balthazar, Kerry Joseph and Kellon Serrette grabbed a goal each in the 21st, 58th and 90th minutes, respectively.

Civic, with 4 points from five DPL games, got their lone item in the 76th minute through forward Shackiel Henry. The Point Fortin club will return to action on Saturday against cellar-placed Club Sando from 4 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium followed by a 6 pm kick-off between fourth place W Connection and seventh place St. Ann’s Rangers.

Also on Saturday, North East Stars will face ninth place Morvant Caledonia United from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

But the action kicks off on Friday with Police FC against Defence Force from 6 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, followed by an 8 pm kick-off between Jabloteh and Central FC.

Police and Jabloteh puts the hurt on 10-man D/Force and Central respectively.
ttproleague.com.


Digicel Pro League leaders Defence Force and second place Central FC both failed to strengthen their positions at the top—which could slip away today—after suffering 1-0 defeats last night.

Makesi Lewis netted his sixth league goal of the season in as many games to earn Police FC the 1-0 win over 10-man Defence Force in the first match of a double-header contested at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The win moved coach Richard Hood’s Lawmen up a spot to now occupy fifth with 9 points—just two points away from Defence Force and Central, both on 11 points but separated by goal-difference (+6 to +5).

Defending league champions, Central, failed to capitalise on Defence Force’s loss by suffering a 1-0 loss themselves in the second game on the night and both teams can slip off the top after previous leaders North East Stars (10 points) tackle Morvant Caledonia United from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium today (Saturday).

Former Central FC winger Tyrone Charles, who rattled the upright from a 30-yard free-kick seven minutes into the match, scored the winner in the 66th minute to earn Jabloteh full points over the Couva Sharks.

Charles, unleashed by a long ball forward from Fabien Reid, showed good speed, strength and determination when he outmuscled defender Kaydion Gabriel to slip the ball beyond goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams and into the net from just inside the area for his seventh goal in all competitions this season.

Surely, the win was a boost in ego for Jabloteh coach Keith Jeffrey, who, last month, referred to Central the “old Jabloteh” due to the fact that their roster boasts quite a number of former Jabloteh players.

Central, without veteran creative midfielder Marvin Oliver, failed to create much tempo, while Jabloteh seemed well-drilled when it came to swamping their area defensively with green shirts whenever the Couva Sharks attacked.

Central, coached by Ross Russell, conjured a few late attempts—twice from Plaza and once from substitute Darren Mitchell—but other than Plaza’s half-volley strike in the 82nd minute, none troubled Jabloteh goalie Shemel Louison, who also did well to put behind a left-footed strike from Marcus Joseph four minutes from the break.

Jabloteh, now on 10 points as third place North East Stars, moved up a spot on the ladder into fourth, previously held W Connection (7 points), who must welcome seventh place St. Ann’s Rangers (5 points) from 6 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium today (Saturday) following a 4 pm kick-off between Club Sando and Point Fortin Civic at the Couva venue.

Defence Force, coming off Wednesday’s impressive 5-1 win over Civic, were left ruing a basket of missed chances last night while Police were celebrating full points.

Police’s liveliest player on the night, Christon Thomas, had circled Defence Force defender Marvin Jones before playing in striker Makesi Lewis inside the box. Lewis controlled the ball off his right boot before firing beyond goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke and into the back of the net off his left boot with 24 minutes left.

Jones was later ejected by referee Keon Yorke, who initially awarded the defender a yellow card for diving. But followed up with the red card for dissent, reducing Defence Force to 10 men with six minutes of regular time left.

However that wasn’t the real disappointment for Defence Force, who had ample opportunity for maximum points.

The Marvin Gordon coached-Defence Force were denied by the frame three times within the first 8 minutes of play.

Devorn Jorsling missed out on a gift of an opportunity seconds into the match when his right-footed attempt cannoned off the upright running onto a neat Kerry Joseph defence-splitting pass and skipping away from Police goalkeeper Adrian Foncette.

Jorsling, who, in the 64th minute directed a free-kick onto the upright, also had a 7th minute deflected strike skid off the upright.

Then from the resulting corner swung in by Joseph, a cheeky flick off the outside of Jerwyn Balthazar’s boot at the near post, struck the frame.

But it wasn’t only the frame that stood in Defence Force’s way. Foncette made three saves in the second half, denying Dave Long, Jorsling and Joseph to keep a clean sheet before teammate Makesi Lewis’ winner.

Jomal Williams lessons Rangers with a hat-trick as Connection climb third.
ttproleague.com.


Jomal Williams added a hat-trick to his scoring form this season, and W Connection dumped St. Ann's Rangers 5-0 on Saturday night at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

The win moved Connection three spots up the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 ladder into third with 10 points, but only ahead of San Juan Jabloteh and North East Stars – also with 10 points – on goal-difference, while Rangers occupy eight place with 5 points.

Also making upward movement on Saturday were Point Fortin Civic, who jumped one spot into seventh place with 7 points after a 3-1 come-from-behind win over table-propping Club Sando in the first match of the Couva double-header.

Forward Jamille Boatswain scored on either side of the break before Andrei Pacheco converted from the penalty spot, and Civic, who ended the match with 10 men, were celebrating three points away from home.

Sando took a 1-0 lead on the 23rd minute when Kevon “Showtime” Woodley scored past goalkeeper Miles Goodman from a cross.

Just two minutes later and Boatswain levelled the scores 1-1 when he struck past goalkeeper Kelvin Henry.

Boatswain later completed his double in the 53rd minute after running onto a long pass forward by midfielder Kelvin Modeste, evading Henry and hitting past a last gasp effort from a defender for a 2-1 Civic lead.

Pacheco then made it 3-1 for the Leroy DeLeon coached-Civic on the 60th minute when he sent a low penalty strike beyond the Sando custodian and into the net. Referee Kevin Smart had awarded the kick after forward Shackeil Henry was brought down in the area by defender Corneal Thomas.

Sando too, had an attempt from the penalty spot but goalkeeper Goodman was excellent to deny a not-so-good strike from Woodley on the 69th minute.

Referee Smart had ruled a handball against Ronell Paul after a cross by Kemuel Rivers struck the defender’s arm in the area.

There was another brief shout for penalty in the 77th minute when Ryan Frederick went to ground in a challenge with Civic defender Kern Peters, but Smart awarded a free-kick against Sando.

Sando, quite lethargically, also failed to take advantage with a player more, after Civic’s Glenn Sutton was ejected in the 67th minute—receiving his second yellow card in a space of two minutes while his team led 3-1.

Sando had a couple tries in the final eight minutes but Goodman, who was generally brilliant on the evening including a point-blank save in the 57th minute to deny Woodley, did well to steer attempts by Akeem Humphrey and Devon Modeste wide.

In the second match at the Couva venue, Jomal Williams stole the night with three goals, putting his tally to 9 goals in all competitions this season.

The 21-year-old attacker opened the scoring against Rangers just 62 seconds into the match with a clinical strike into goalkeeper Stefan Berkeley’s net after combining with Shahdon Winchester inside the left of the area.

Jomal made it 2-0 on the 19th minute, sending a strike off the upright and into the net after he was picked out by a Kurt Frederick pass.

Rangers, led this season by coach Angus Eve who has tasked himself to turn the St. Ann’s club into a formidable outfit, conceded a third in the 28th minute when the 23-year-old Winchester headed a Frederick cross over a hapless Berkeley.

The score read 3-0 to Connection at the break, and Rangers were lucky not to conceded more after close misses by Andre Toussaint and Briel Thomas, including a desperate clearance at the line by Rangers defender Shakiyl Phillip after directing a Neil Benjamin cross towards his own net.

But just three minutes inside the second period and Jomal completed his hat-trick for a 4-0 Connection lead with strike from 23 yards that flew into Berkeley’s far netting.

Connection chasing a bigger score-line, saw Benjamin miss the far post by inches after a flicked return pass into the area by Jomal and substitute Dmitrie Apai forcing a save out of Berkeley later on.

But Berkeley, who avoided embarrassment in the 33rd minute by plucking a lobbed Jomal attempt out of the air, was beaten again in the 84th minute—this time from the penalty spot as Connection completed a 5-0 rout, extending their unbeaten run in all competitions to 13 games.

Winchester, from the penalty spot, completed his double on the night and seventh goal in all competitions this season, after referee Gyasi Mc Donald ruled a handball against Rangers defender Jelani Peters in the area.

Connection, like Jabloteh and North East Stars, are now one point adrift of Defence Force and defending champions Central FC, who have held first and second place, respectively, in the last five days on 11 points.

Stars, with a chance to return to the top on Saturday, failed to do so after surrendering to a 2-1 loss against visiting Morvant Caledonia United at the Larry Gomes Stadium earlier in the day.

Caledonia, for their first league win of the season, got their goals from unlikely sources in Jamaal Harvey and Kyle Bartholomew, netting their first goals of the season in the 2nd and 25th minutes respectively, before the hosts pulled back a goal through Trinidad and Tobago international Keron Cummings five minutes before the break.

Despite the win, Caledonia remained in ninth place with 4 points, one less than Rangers and three more than cellar place Sando.

North East Stars 1 (Keron Cummings 40’) vs Morvant Caledonia United 2 (Jamaal Harvey 2’, Kyle Bartholomew 25’)

Subventions likely to be reduced.
By Joel Bailey (Newsday).


CLUBS IN the TT Pro League are likely to be in immediate financial trouble as there is the possibility that the monthly subventions from the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SPORTT) will be reduced.

Recently-appointed SPORTT chairman Michael Phillips, in a telephone interview yesterday, revealed, “right now there has been no agreement in place, for that payment to be facilitated. That is the problem.” Asked if, in the case of no agreement, that things has stopped for now, Phillips replied, “it is something that was being addressed.” He admitted, “in the past it (was) the Sports Company that dealt with those payments of the subventions.” But it seems likely that the subventions will now fall under the purview on the Ministry of Sport.

Questioned whether the subventions are likely to be slashed from the $83,000 per month, the former national cyclist stated, “the information with regards to the quantum of support — all of those things are to be made public, all of those things were being sorted out.” Newsday understands that reducing the $830,000 monthly payment for the 10 Pro league clubs is being mulled.

Brent Sancho, managing director of Bankers Insurance Central FC, in an interview last evening, said, “it’s something that will have to take place, discussions will have to take place first of all before we go down that road. To reduce something like that now I think it’s absolutely ludicrous.

I agree in having some sort of discussion as to the way forward, whether it is reducing or whether it is finding other ways of assisting the clubs earning a revenue stream. It’s not just as simple as reducing a subvention, you have to look at the holistic picture, as it relates to football in this country.

The survival of Pro League clubs, the clubs are the ones that drives and has pushed the national programme.

Many of our young players have come from the Pro League clubs. It shows that this industry is a very valuable conveyor belt for our national programme.” How soon may the club get subventions? Sancho replied, “for us personally, it is a challenge, it will be a challenge. I know another month without it will definitely mean big trouble for (some) clubs. I’ll be very surprised if clubs survive the Christmas period.

I’m very aware that, in some clubs, players have left in exodus to look for employment. So it’s already starting to have an effect.

No club in the Pro League is having a go at the Government.

We are very grateful for the assistance of the Government. But the challenge we have as clubs is when you have budgeted monies over the course of a year and it doesn’t come, it leaves you in a perilous state.” Jerry Hospedales owner of Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh, earlier revealed that subventions which had not been paid for the last two months were expected to be forthcoming this month.

“I understand that matter is solved, I think it’s solved, so I understand.

The players understood the rationale of the non-payments of wages. But that matter is now settled, as I understand it.

In other words, the Sports Company is making arrangements to have the payments made, but consistent with their own statutory requirements. It’s not a matter I would have concern about right now,” he answered.

Clubs have to see that hard times are coming and they MUST as a matter of URGENCY, find alternative revenue streams, most likely associated with gate receipts, most likely from community grounds that are urgently to be constructed.

Jamal Gay nets hat-trick as Jabloteh demolish Sando 6-0; D/Force gets revenge on Connection and Civic edge Calè.
ttproleague.com.


Jamal Gay scored a hat-trick as San Juan Jabloteh romped to a 6-0 victory over Club Sando in their Digicel Pro League (DPL) clash on Tuesday at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.

Jamaican defender Ricardo Harriott put Jabloteh in front on the 16th minute before Gay made it 2-0 in the 27th minute—a cushion which the visitors took to in at the break.

Club Sando, with regular defenders Corneal Thomas and Devon Drayton unused on the bench, were defensively poor and Jabloteh took full advantage.

Jamaican midfielder Fabian Reid scored Jabloteh’s third goal in the 63rd minute before Gay completed his hat-trick within nine minutes, netting in the 65th and 73rd minutes, to increase his scoring tally to 7 goals in all competitions this season.

Substitute Brent Sam, in his first game for the San Juan Kings this season, marked his return to top flight football with a goal in the 78th minute to complete the 6-0 win.

Sam, a San Juan North Secondary standout in the Secondary Schools Football League, executed a cool finish beyond a hapless goalkeeper Kelvin Henry following a giveaway in the area by Sando.

While the result stands as the biggest win for any team in the DPL this season, it isn’t the highest scoring outing in all competitions this term for the San Juan Kings, who demolished Super League side Marabella Family Crisis Centre 7-0 in the preliminary round of this season’s Toyota Classic before whipping Super League’s Guaya United 5-0 in the quarter-final round.

North East Stars remains with the biggest win in all competitions this season courtesy an 8-0 result over Super League side Siparia Spurs in the preliminary round of the Toyota Classic.

Tuesday’s win, however, pushed the Keith Jeffrey coached-Jabloteh up two spots into second with 13 points, one point behind leaders Defence Force (14 points).

Defence Force kept their position at the top of the 2015-16 standings by halting W Connection's 13-game undefeated streak in all competitions with a 2-0 win over the Savonetta Boys in a feisty battle in the second game of the double-header contested in Couva.

Earlier at the Mahaica Oval, home-side Point Fortin Civic edged Morvant Caledonia United 1-0, courtesy a 10th minute item from forward Shackeil Henry – his third goal of the season – as his side picked up a second consecutive league win.

The win puts Civic up a spot into sixth place on 10 points with North East Stars and W Connection also on 10 points, in ascending order.

Connection had defeated 10-men Defence Force 4-0 in the final of the Toyota Classic on Dec. 6, and while Tuesday’s win for the army/coastguard combination isn’t as valuable as Connection’s title win, there was some level of retribution for Defence Force.

“Tonight (Tuesday) was like a virtual final for us again,” said Defence Force head coach Marvin Gordon after the win. “…because losing tonight would have dropped us down the league table and without a chance to win the first round. The plan is to win the league round by round.”

Defence Force took a 1-0 lead through a powerfully struck Ross Russell Jr. strike, which took a deflection to beat W Connection custodian Julani Archibald four minutes before the break.

Forward Devorn Jorsling, who was red carded in the final of the Toyota Classic, redeemed himself on Tuesday with a brilliant performance which included a penalty goal in the 58th minute.

Referee Gyasi Mc Donald awarded Defence Force the penalty, ruling a foul was committed on Jorsling, who went to ground in the area following a collision of players.

The all-time leading Pro League top scorer then converted from the spot for his fourth goal of the season in all competitions after wrong-siding Archibald for a 2-0 lead.

“We understand how W Connection play in their marking and tracking. We also made a change in our system starting with only one defensive midfielder because I thought tactically I needed that, but we needed to work hard defensively because W Connection have a lot of good (young players) going forward.

I thought we played to plan, we solved them out, and as the game progressed, we got into a rhythm and started to possess the ball and created chances. Tonight my players were brilliant especially in their attitude and how we worked on defence, not giving up anything and making W Connection work for everything. In the final (of the Toyota Classic) the red card hurt us but tonight with all 11 players on the park and the right attitude, it gave us a brilliant result."

Archibald had made a low save to keep out a strike by Defence Force team captain Jerwyn Balthazar before winger Kishun Seecharan whipped in the dangerous return cross, which created problems for the home side and the eventual penalty decision.

Archibald later pulled off a one-handed save in the 65th minute to deny a Jorsling free kick from the edge of the area.

Connection, also this season's First Citizens Cup champions, had an excellent opportunity to reduce the deficit with 16 minutes of regular remaining. But forward Shahdon Winchester's sliding attempt to meet a Kurt Frederick cross at the goalmouth was in vain.

Both sides mounted late openings but no attempts were able to trouble the opposing goalkeepers in the DPL Round One Match Day Seven clash.

“The decision to give the penalty really affected us,” said W Connection head coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier. “It wasn’t a penalty… the two army (Defence Force) attackers clashed.

“But having said that, I felt that our players allowed the decision to frustrate them and our game went to pieces after that. It’s because a lot of them are still immature.

“We always knew this game would be tougher (than the final we played against Defence Force). But our players must understand that sometimes you will get decisions that are not correct. I have to address it with my players because it’s all about growing and learning as professional players. It’s a group of young players and you could have seen the frustration in the body language after the penalty, and we lost the game because we got disorganised and mentally we were in pieces. Our players virtually gave Defence Force the game after the penalty.”

Round One Match Day Seven continues today (Wednesday) at the Hasely Crawford Stadium when eight place St. Ann’s Rangers (5 points) welcomes seventh place Police FC (9 points) from 6 pm, before North East Stars tackle third place defending champions Central FC (11 points) from 8 pm.

Makesi Lewis tricks as Police maul Rangers; Central falls to own-goal against N/E Stars.
ttproleague.com.


Makesi Lewis scored the third hat-trick of the season on Wednesday night as Police FC rebounded from an early deficit to whip St. Ann’s Rangers 6-1 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The win improved the Richard Hood coached-Police up three spots into fourth on the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 standings with 12 points, one point ahead of defending champions Central FC (11 points), who slipped two spots into fifth at the end of Wednesday’s double-header at the Port of Spain venue.

Central were edged 1-0 by North East Stars, who moved up two spots to occupy third on 13 points with San Juan Jabloteh – both one point away from leaders Defence Force – through an own-goal credited to Couva Sharks defender Kevon Villaroel in the 43rd minute.

Stars, with a creditable performance on the night, held on for the win, while Central had themselves to blame after wasted chances, resulting in their second consecutive league defeat.

In the earlier match however, Police recorded their second consecutive win in the league in a lopsided affair although Rangers had a 1-0 lead in just the 4th minute of play when defender Jelani Peters headed a Miguel Romeo free-kick past goalkeeper Adrian Foncette.

Forward Kareem Freitas, younger brother of Rangers midfielder Sayid Freitas, levelled Police 1-1 in the 25th minute with his fifth goal of the season in all competitions.

Freitas slid in at the back post to put the ball over the line after a Jibri Mc David right side cross was flicked beyond goalkeeper Christopher Biggette.

It was downhill from there on for Rangers, especially Biggette and his defence.

Police utility player Christon Thomas made it 2-1 in the 27th minute with a cracker from 24 yards out to beat Biggette.

Two minutes later and Biggette was beaten again from distance when Makesi Lewis executed a blast of his own, for his first item on the night and a 3-1 Police cushion.

Lewis got to his second for a 4-1 score four minutes before the break by smashing the ball past Biggette at the far post after Kurdell Brathwaite headed on a Dylon King corner.

Brathwaite had started in midfield in place of captain and veteran Todd Ryan, who picked up an injury during the pre-game warm-up.

It clearly didn’t affect the night for Police although losing substitute and scorer Anton Hutchinson to a successive yellow cards.

Makesi Lewis, from an Elijah Belgrave cross in the 69 minute, completed his hat-trick with his 11th goal in all competitions this season before Hutchinson made it 6-1 in the 73rd minute.

W Connection’s Jomal Williams and San Juan Jabloteh’s Jamal Gay are the only other two players to have scored hat-tricks this season in all competitions, while North East Stars’ Jomoul Francois and Club Sando’s Kevon Woodley are with a beaver-trick each.

Hutchinson, however, who replaced Jasimar Ashers in the 46th minute, will miss Friday’s clash with Club Sando from 6 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium in their final match before the Christmas break.

Hutchinson was issued a second yellow card two minutes after scoring for a foul, reducing coach Richard Hood’s Lawmen to 10 men.

Also on Friday at the Couva venue, W Connection will tackle San Juan Jabloteh from 8 pm.

The action continues on Saturday before heading into the break. At the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Defence Force will face North East Stars from 4 pm prior to a 6 pm kick-off between St. Ann’s Rangers and Point Fortin Civic. Also on Saturday, Morvant Caledonia United will take on Central FC from 3:30 pm.

Christon Thomas lifts Police into lead.
ttproleague.com.


Connection return to winning ways as Rawle Fletcher Trophy intensifies.

Police FC heads into the Christmas break on a three-game winning streak after defeating cellar-positioned Club Sando 2-0 in the first game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva on Friday night.

Utility player Christon Thomas grabbed both goals for Police, scoring on either side of the break, putting his individual tally to 3 goals in the last two games while demonstrating his worth in the role of wide attacking midfielder.

Thomas, often used as a wingback or fullback, scored the second goal in Police’s 6-1 league win over St. Ann’s Rangers on Wednesday night while forward Makesi Lewis grabbed a hat-trick.

But on Friday night, Thomas stole the show with well-executed strike in the 24th minute and completed his double in the 89th minute when his deflected strike left goalie Kelvin Henry beaten a second time as Sando recorded a fifth consecutive loss in all competitions and winless at the bottom of the Digicel Pro League (DPL) standings with just one point.

While the win for Police, propelled coach Richard Hood’s Lawmen up three spots into the DPL 2015-16 lead with 15 points—just one point ahead of Defence Force (14 points), who must face North East Stars (13 points) from 4 pm on today (Saturday) at the Hasely Crawford Stadium before heading into the two-week break.

The race to win the Rawle Fletcher Trophy – awarded to the top team after Round One in the DPL – intensified further by the end of last night’s Couva double-header.

W Connection, who had their 13-game undefeated run in all competitions snapped by a 2-0 loss against Defence Force on Tuesday, returned to winning ways by defeating San Juan Jabloteh 2-0 at the Couva venue.

Jomal Williams put the Stuart Charles-Fevrier coached-Connection ahead four minutes before the break, before Shahdon Winchester redeemed himself with a goal on the hour mark after earlier missing a penalty and follow-up strike.

The result thrusted Connection three spots up the ladder into third with 13 points as Jabloteh and North East Stars, in descending order.

Last season's Rawle Fletcher Trophy winners' Central FC are sixth with 11 points, one point ahead of Point Fortin Civic, and will take on ninth-positioned Morvant Caledonia United from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium today (Saturday).

Jomal failed to put Connection ahead from the 28th minute when, unchallenged in the Jabloteh area, he directed a header just wide of goal after Aikim Andrews supplied the perfect cross.

However Jomal redeemed himself in the 41st minute by scoring his 10th goal in all competitions this season.

Gerard Williams had evaded two Jabloteh shirts before threading a telling pass from midfield and Jomal latched onto the pass inside the box before finishing low past goalkeeper Shemel Louison for a 1-0 lead.

Jabloteh found themselves in trouble in the 55th minute when referee Gordon Maloney awarded Connection a penalty after attacker Dimitrie Apai was brought down in the box by defender Aquil Selby.

However Louison, Grenada national team goalkeeper, pulled off back-to-back saves denying Winchester’s kick from the spot then the rebound effort from the Connection forward.

But on the 60th minute Winchester, who also curled an effort inches wide in the 30th minute, redeemed himself when he hooked an Apai cross beyond Louison and into the net for a 2-0 Connection cushion and his 8th goal in all competitions this season.

Jabloteh mounted continuous attacks with coach Keith Jeffrey even trading midfielders Fabian Reid and Keyon Edwards and fullback Caleb Sturge for forwards Nathan Lewis, Brent Sam and Jordan Devonish, respectively, in the second period, but Connection second choice goalkeeper Terrence Lewis was at the top of his game in preserving a clean sheet.

Lewis, who tipped behind a Reid (F) attempt in the 24th minute, made a superb one-handed save ten minutes from time to deny Jabloteh forward Jamal Gay, who should have done better off Sam’s cross.

Sam was earlier denied by Lewis and also struck wide in separate plays just a minute after entering the pitch in the 57th minute.

Lewis had the last say thwarting Gay on two bites of the cherry in the 87 minute from close up after initially blocking out a Tyrone Charles effort.

Jorsling tricks as D/Force puts one hand on Rawle Fletcher Trophy.
ttproleague.com.


All-time Pro League top-scorer Devorn Jorsling turned back the clock on Saturday afternoon, netting an uninterrupted hat-trick, off his usually avoided right boot, to pace Defence Force to a comprehensive 6-1 win over North East Stars at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The win returned Defence Force (5-2-1; 17 points) to the summit of the 10-team Digicel Pro League (DPL) 2015-16 standings with one hand on the Rawle Fletcher Trophy, which is awarded to the winners of Round One in the DPL.

The winners of the Rawle Fletcher Trophy, however, will not be decided until the league resumes with the final Round One slate of games on January 8-9 after the two-week Christmas break.

Police FC (4-3-1; 15 points), who had a temporary stint atop the standings following Friday night’s 2-0 win over Club Sando, are now two points behind in second.

While Central FC, last season’s DPL champions and winners of the Rawle Fletcher, Akeem Adams and Kevon Carter trophies for each round of the league, are virtually unable to defend the Rawle Fletcher Trophy although defeating Morvant Caledonia United 4-0 at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Saturday.

Defender Jamal Jack opened the scoring in the 4th minute for the Couva Sharks before midfielders Jason Marcano, five minutes later, and Leston Paul, in the 45th minute, added a goal each for a 3-0 lead at the break. Then on the 90 minute, forward Marcus Joseph wrapped up the 4-0 scoring.

The result snapped a two-game losing run for Central (4-2-2; 14 points) now three places up into third and three points away from leaders Defence Force. But are well behind the army/coastguard combination on goal-difference (+14 to +7).

Defence Force, needing just a point in their final game of Round One against Morvant Caledonia United, stands with the best chance of capturing the Rawle Fletcher Trophy, which is named in honour of their late teammate.

Jorsling scored twice in the first half against North East Stars, sending the Marvin Gordon coached-Defence Force into the break with a 2-0 cushion on Saturday.

The 31-year-old ex-Trinidad and Tobago international fired past the fingers of goalkeeper Shane Mattis from the centre of the area for his first goal. It was from a sweeping move down the left by Ross Russell Jr., who exchanged a return pass with Jerwyn Balthazar, before providing the assist to Jorsling in the 30th minute.

Jorsling got to his second on the 39th minute after a right-side Curtis Gonzales’ cross was glanced off the head of Balthazar and into his path.

Jorsling missed out on another three minutes inside the second period, hitting just overbar off his thigh from a perfect Gonzales cross behind the defence.

But the veteran Defence Force forward completed his first hat-trick of the season and seventh goal in all competitions by the 52nd minute, showing excellent composure sharpness inside the box, following a Balthazar feed, to find the far bottom corner of Mattis’ net for a 3-0 score.

North East Stars later reduced the deficit 1-3 in the 64th minute after Keron Cummings converted from the spot, beating Defence Force goalkeeper Sheldon Clark down the centre, after he was fouled just above the six-yard area.

Clarke, who made a point blank diving save to keep out substitute Neveal Hackshaw’s strike in the 47th minute, had pulled off another excellent shutout to deny Hackshaw again after Alanzo Adlam’s rocket cannoned off the crossbar and back into play.

But in the follow-up off Clarke’s save, Cummings was bundled to ground, forcing referee Rashby Mc Phie to point to the spot.

North East Stars managed a few wide attempts in their quest to further reduce the deficit. But Defence Force’s dominance paid off with three more goals.

Gordon’s men made it 4-1 on the 68th minute through Kishun Seecharan.

Seecharan, who was excellent in the wide attacking role and was involved in the plays leading up to two of Jorsling’s goal, capped off his performance with an exceptional goal.

After collecting a Ross Russell Jr. cross with a deft tough on his favoured left boot, the former T&T youth player, with the same boot, calmly lifted the ball beyond an advancing Mattis and into the back of the net.

Defensive midfielder Sean Narcis joined in on the fun in the 75th minute by smashing Gonzales’s deflected cross into Mattis’ net for a 5-1 score.

Mattis was hung out to dry again in the second minute of stoppage-time by his defence after making a save to keep out substitute Kellon Serrette’s attempt, but another substitute Stephan Campbell was alive in the box to smash the ball beyond the goalie to complete the 6-1 rout.

In the second game of the Port of Spain double-header on Saturday, St. Ann’s Rangers edged visiting Point Fortin Civic 1-0 through a 40th minute item from Keron Cornwall.

Rangers (2-2-4; 8 points), under new coach Angus Eve, remains in eight place but have already outdone last season in which they tallied just 5 points from 24 league games.

Civic (3-1-4; 10 points) are seventh and were on a two-game winning run prior to kick-off against Rangers.

Caledonia meanwhile, are winless in their last three outings and occupies ninth place with 4 points, while debuting Club Sando are anchored at the bottom with just one point.

Club Sando trounce Caledonia 3-0 for first DPL win.
ttproleague.com.


Jesse Downing, Amrit Gildharry and substitute Kerron Mitchell each scored their first goal of the season on Tuesday night as Club Sando defeated Morvant Caledonia United 3-0 for their first Digicel Pro League win of the season after eight attempts.

The victory snapped a four-game losing streak in the league and five overall in all competitions for Sando, since defeating Caledonia 4-2 in the third place play-off of the First Citizens Cup on October 30.

However Sando, the former Super League champions and debutants in the Pro League this season, remained bottom of the 10-team 2015-16 standings due to a much lesser goal-difference although moving level on 4 points with ninth place Caledonia.

Downing unleased a 25-yard laser on the 37th minute to give Sando a much deserved 1-0 lead, following earlier near misses by forwards Kevon Woodley and Devon Modeste and a save by Caledonia reserve goalkeeper Deandre Villaroel to deny Woodley.

The 19-year-old Villaroel, starting in absence of Marvin Phillip who is with the Trinidad and Tobago national team preparing for Friday’s Copa America Centenario play-in with Haiti in Panama, had little chance at the Downing effort.

Downing, occupying a wide attacking role, unleashed the strike with precision and sting to fit the ball into the bottom corner following a desperate clearance by the Caledonia defence.

Having ended the first half on top, Sando remained on the front foot and doubled the advantage by the 53rd minute.

Defender Gildharry blasted into the roof of Villaroel’s net from inside the box for the 2-0 cushion after the Caledonia ‘keeper had charged down a Woodley attempt from a left side corner swung in by Modeste.

Caledonia, on a rare opening past the Sando defence, had a chance to slice the home side’s lead just over the hour mark. But Caledonia captain Kareem Joseph’s crack from the right side cannoned off the far upright and stayed in play before it was carried out to safety by Sando.

Earlier Caledonia coach Jerry Moe threw in creative midfielders Pernell Schultz and Akim Armstrong in support of midfielder Densill Theobald and talented forward Sheldon Holder.

But, other than Joseph’s attempt off the upright and Holder troubling the side netting a minute before the break, the visitors failed make it a miserable night for goalkeeper Kelvin Henry.

Henry’s clean sheet in the end wasn’t possible without the solid defensive work by midfielder Jared London and defenders Corneal Thomas, Kemuel Rivers and captain Kern Cupid before he was stretchered off with 12 minutes left in regular time due to a suspected leg strain.

However Cupid’s replacement, Kerron Mitchell, sealed the 3-0 win in the third and final minute of stoppage-time for the Anthony Streete coached- Club Sando.

Mitchell slid in near the goalmouth to put a right side Akeem Humphrey cross beyond a hapless Villaroel.

Eleven minutes earlier Villaroel was lucky not to concede after Sando substitute Shaquille Holder was brought down at the edge of the box by defender Otev Lawrence. Sando’s Corneal Thomas, from a set-piece, curling the free-kick inches wide of the far top corner.

Earlier this week, Sando’s technical director Muhammad Isa said he wants his players show more appetite and Tuesday’s 3-0 win should surely suffice in their first game since this Christmas break.

The bigger test, though, will come on Saturday against W Connection from 7 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium in the final game of Round One.

Meanwhile Caledonia, now on a three-game losing streak since edging North East Stars 2-1 on December 12 in a league contest, will return to action on Friday against DPL leaders Defence Force from 6 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Defence Force, with 17 points, are two points and a healthier goal-difference ahead of second position Police (15 points), with the race to the Rawle Fletcher Round One Trophy to be decided this weekend.

Defending DPL and Rawle Fletcher Trophy winners, Central FC, are third with 14 points.

Congratulations to Club Sando. It was always going to be tough for them, so happy they got that first league victory out the way.

Plenty of characters on this team, with very interesting backgrounds...hopefully they stay hungry from here on.

I am impressed every time I see Jared London play...Tallman, how old is he?

Jesse Downing is capable of doing dem kinda ting; he is Aaron Downing's big brother. Anybody else remember his promise?

Jared London is 20. He plays defensive midfield.

Another player to watch is Tobago-born Jarieb Louis (spelling?) who plays for Mason Hall. Only 14, he currently plays in the TFA League and according to his coach, he is capable of playing in the Super League. He was also part of the Whim Primary School was won and challenged for National Primary School Titles a few years ago.

Defence Force crush Caledonia 8-0 to take home Rawle Fletcher trophy.
ttproleague.com.


Jerwyn Balthazar scored an early hattrick to inspire an invincible Defence Force performance as they crushed Morvant Caledonia United 8-0 on Friday night to secure the Army/Coast Guard combination’s maiden Rawle Fletcher trophy.

The Rawle Fletcher (Round One) trophy, along with the Akeem Adams (Round Two) and Kevon Carter (Round Three) trophies were introduced last season in honour of the late players, while increasing the level of competition throughout the Digicel Pro League championship.

Central FC made a clean sweep last season, winning every round en route to lifting the league championship.

But on Friday night, with full points at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in their third consecutive league win, the Marvin Gordon coached-Defence Force maintained their position at the summit of the current 2015-16 standings with an unassailable 20 points from Round One to secure the Rawle Fletcher trophy this time around.

The result dashed the hopes of second position Police FC (15 points) and third positioned Central FC (14 points), who must tackle Point Fortin Civic and St. Ann’s Rangers, respectively, today (Saturday) in their final Round One fixture.

Earlier this week, Gordon said his side will use every available cannon in the artillery to secure the Round One trophy in honour of their former teammate and soldier Rawle Fletcher.

Fletcher, who played as a defender and had attained the rank of lance corporal, was one of three people, including his best friend businessman Mitra Maharaj and 19-year-old Anil Diram, killed in a drive-by shooting in Couva in December 2013. Fletcher was age 34.

Despite being without scoring ace Devorn Jorsling, due to injury, while forward Richard Roy was used off the bench in the final 30 minutes, Defence Force were blazing all guns against the ninth positioned Caledonia from early on and had an excellent chance to take the lead inside the second minute of play.

But Balthazar headed wide from the edge of the six-yard area after meeting a well-placed Curtis Gonzales cross.

However Balthazar would redeemed himself by bagging his hattrick within a space of 11 minutes and Defence Force were well in control for full points and the title in honour of Fletcher.

Balthazar, wearing the armband, led brilliantly from attacking midfield, but generally, it was a passionate team effort from Gordon’s side.

Balthazar gave Defence Force a deserving 1-0 lead on 10 minutes with a glancing header at the near post to put a Kishun Seecharan corner past rookie Caledonia goalie Deandre Villaroel.

Villaroel, who also stood between the sticks in Tuesday’s 3-0 league loss at Club Sando, had no idea he was in for a nightmare, while Caledonia’s first choice goalie Marvin Phillip was an unused substitute in Trinidad and Tobago’s 1-0 loss against Haiti in the Copa America Centenario play-in in Panama on Friday night.

Villaroel was beaten again after in the 14th minute when a 25-yard Balthazar free-kick to a deflection in the box before entering the back of the net for a 2-0 Defence Force cushion.

Balthazar then completed his hattrick from the penalty spot for a 3-0 advantage on 21 minutes after Ross Russell Jr. was upended in the Caledonia box by defender Antonio Joseph, forcing referee Crystal Sobers to point to the spot.

The lopsided affair continued and Defence Force grabbed three more, through defender Rodell Elcock, midfielder Sean Narcis and winger Seecharan, for a 6-0 score into the break.

Elcock’s header off a Gonzales corner clipped the underside of the crossbar before entering the Caledonia net on 25 minutes.

Then a quick exchange between Balthazar and Seecharan and a feed from the latter resulted in Narcis scoring from close range just over the half hour mark.

Seecharan, who created havoc for Caledonia, added a goal to his two assists on the night, when a ball over the top by Balthazar on the stroke of halftime was met by the teenager who controlled in the area before firing low past Villaroel.

The misery didn’t stop there for Caledonia, who even stood without 2006 World Cup midfielder Densill Theobald, who will depart on Monday for his third spell in the India I-League but first with Sporting Clube de Goa.

Despite some early second half resistance by Caledonia, Defence Force got to their seventh goal 10 minutes after the restart when Ross Russell Jr. rounded Villaroel before strolling the ball into the net.

Forward Kellon Serrette, who was denied by the offside flag in the first half, completed the 8-0 Defence Force win with a minute left in regular time as Caledonia slumped to their sixth straight loss in all competitions.

In the second game of the Port-of-Spain double-header on Friday night, substitute Brent Sam rescued San Juan Jabloteh to a 2-2 draw while denying visiting North East Stars and their debuting coach, Ross Russell a victory.

Jabloteh grabbed the lead inside 2 minutes of play through winger Kennedy Hinkson.

Fullback Caleb Sturge whipped in a telling cross which was knocked into the path of Hinkson by Jamal Gay, and Hinkson, who evaded his challenger, struck past goalkeeper Cleon John from the edge of the six-yard area.

But a spectacular left-footed volley from Gorean ‘Ratty’ Highley, off a deep Rickel Dickson cross, beat goalkeeper Shemel Louison to level the score 1-1 on 24 minutes.

Coach Russell, who was sacked a month ago by defending league champions Central, saw his new side take the lead through a Neil Mitchell deflected strike on 64 minutes.

Finally an instinctive flick off the boot of substitute Sam when he met a diagonal Keyon Edwards feed with 2 minutes left in regular-time, saw Jabloteh level the score 2-2.

Defence Force 8 (Jerwyn Balthazar 10’, 14’, 21’, Rodell Elcock 26’, Sean Narcis 34’, Kishun Seecharan 45’, Ross Russell Jr. 55’, Kellon Serrette 89’) vs Morvant Caledonia United 0

Sando upset Connection and Central spank Rangers, while Police keep chase on leaders D/Force.
ttproleague.com.


Club Sando moved off the bottom of the Digicel Pro League (DPL) standings on Saturday with a 1-0 upset win over W Connection.

It was the second consecutive win for the Anthony Streete-coached Sando in less than a week, after registering their first DPL league win of the season on Tuesday with a 3-0 score over Morvant Caledonia United.

But Saturday’s win wasn’t possible without some luck at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.

Devon Modeste capitalised with headed goal on 36 minutes after Connection goalkeeper Terrence Lewis palmed a cross into the Sando forward’s path.

Connection had carved Sando open on numerous occasions despite the opponents occupying their own half for most of the game. But the Savonetta Boys, without the services of forward Shahdon Winchester and attacking midfielder Jomal Williams due to international duty with the Soca Warriors, failed to find the back of the Sando net.

Twenty-year-old forward Jamal Charles came closest to pulling Connection level, but his strike, five minutes from time, clipped the base of the upright. Charles was one of three second-half substitutes, including 19-year-old recent T&T national team call-up Aikim Andrews and 15-year-old Isaiah Hudson, called upon by coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier.

The 1-0 result saw Sando (7 points) trade places with Morvant Caledonia United (4 points), to now occupy ninth and tenth, respectively. While Connection (13 points) slipped two spots into sixth at the end of Round One.

The 2015-16 standings is led by Defence Force, who humiliated Caledonia 8-0 on Friday night to secure the Rawle Fletcher (Round One) trophy with 20 points to their name.

But on Saturday, Police FC and defending league champions Central FC, now with 18 and 17 points, respectively, kept chase on the leaders with two rounds of the DPL still to go.

Police edged visiting Point Fortin Civic 3-2 earlier with a double from the DPL leading scorer this season, Makesi Lewis, and an equalising item from Elijah Belgrave.

Lewis opened the scoring in the first minute of play and scored the winner on 90 minutes, taking his league tally to 11 goals in nine games this season.

Civic had rebounded in the second half with a goal each from Kerwin Stafford and Akeem Redhead at the Larry Gomes Stadium in the 57th and 64th minutes, respectively. But the second positioned Police stormed back late to register their fourth straight win, with Belgrave’s equaliser on 81 minutes then Lewis’ winner.

Central, occupying third on the ladder, later whipped St. Ann’s Rangers 3-1 in the second game of the Couva double-header.

The Couva Sharks took 1-0 lead on 10 minutes when midfielder Sean De Silva smashed a right-footer past goalkeeper Stefan Berkeley from 22 yards after an errant long-range pass from Rangers defender Shakiyl Phillip.

De Silva missed out on another after 25 minutes of play when his strike, following a neat move involving Jason Marcano and Marvin Oliver, crashed off the upright.

Oliver, enjoying another of his hundreds of classy performances, even at age 40, should have put his name on the scoresheet ten minutes later, but struck high.

However it was Oliver’s feed on the 62 minutes, in another play involving Marcano, that allowed Darren Mitchell to put Central 2-0 up from close range.

Marcano then made it 3-0 on 70 minutes with a powerful strike through the legs of a hapless onrushing Berkeley, who, at the end of the game, tallied four second half saves, denying substitute Marcus Joseph twice and once each Marcano and substitute Nicholas Dillon.

Central FC defender Jamal Jack, on a counterattack, had made a surging run from the back to midway into the opposition’s half and played a pass to Marcano, who slipped beyond two defenders before firing past Berkeley.

But Rangers pulled a goal back on 78 minutes when substitute Trevin Latapy had the simple task of rolling the ball into the Couva Sharks net, with a huge smile, following an error in communication between goalkeeper Akel Clarke and defender Andre Ettienne near the goal line.

Rangers, eight on the standings with 8 points, will next meet Club Sando from 6 pm on Tuesday at the Ato Boldon Stadium, followed by an 8 pm kick-off between W Connection and Morvant Caledonia United in Round Two Match Day One.

Also on Tuesday in a late double-header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, San Juan Jabloteh will host Point Fortin Civic from 7 pm, before leaders Defence Force meet defending champions Central FC from 9 pm.

While Police FC and North East Stars will kick off Tuesday’s slate of games from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

Police FC 3 (Makesi Lewis 1’, 90’, Elijah Belgrave 81’) vs Point Fortin Civic 2 (Kerwin Stafford 57’, Akeem Redhead 64’)

Sando strikes again while DPL front runners drop points.
ttproleague.com.


Club Sando registered a third straight win on Tuesday night to move up a spot into eight on the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 standings courtesy a second half Jeromie Williams goal.

The Tobago-born former Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 midfielder, Williams, netted on 66 minutes to lift Sando to a 1-0 win over St. Ann’s Rangers in the first game of a Round Two Match Day One double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Sando, now with 10 points as seventh positioned Point Fortin Civic, had occupied bottom spot with just one point after eight league outings. But since returning to action following the Christmas break, the Anthony Streete coached-outfit are now riding a three-game winning streak, including wins over Morvant Caledonia United (3-0) and W Connection (1-0).

The only other side making upward movement on Tuesday were Central FC, after the defending DPL champions held current leaders, Defence Force (now 21 points), to a 0-0 draw in the second game of a double-header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The contest had the expected intensity, but no final third bite as Defence Force stood without regular forwards Devorn Jorsling and Richard Roy in their line-up. While Central FC lacked the energy of striker Willis Plaza, who recently joined Salvadoran club Alianza.

Defence Force defender Glynn Franklyn came closest to scoring when his header on 25 minutes, off a Kishun Seecharan corner, clipped the crossbar.

While Central, who added some late life with the debut of 20-year-old forward Ricardo John, saw the former T&T Under-20 player putting goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke into a late save and moments earlier Marcus Joseph had a wide attempt but nothing to avoid the stalemate.

With the point earned, Central hurdled Police for second position only by goal-difference as both teams are now tied on 18 points after the Lawmen, earlier in the day, were defeated 2-0 at North East Stars.

Forward Gorean Highley netted on 24 and 42 minutes, tallying three goals in his last two games, to earn new North East Stars head coach Ross Russell his first win after two attempts.

The result kept North East Stars in fifth, but tied on 17 points with fourth positioned San Juan Jabloteh.

Jabloteh, in the first match at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, maintained their position on the standings after rebounding from a two-goal first half deficit to beat visiting Civic 3-2.

Forward Shackiel Henry scored a first half brace, netting powerful strikes on 22 and 45 minutes for Civic.

Jabloteh were forced to call on the services of first choice goalie Shemel Louison after just 12 minutes of play but that didn’t help against Henry.

The Grenada national team goalie was summoned after second choice ‘keeper Raheem Belgrave injured his leg while making a clearance in the area.

Jabloteh, however, stormed back in the second period with three goals to snatch full points.

Winger Kennedy Hinkson reduced the deficit 1-2 two minutes after the restart with a stroke of brilliance when he curled a right-footer around a full stretch Louison and into the far netting.

Civic had themselves to blame when poor defending on corners saw Jabloteh level the scores then produce the winner.

Forward Jamal Gay, who missed a golden opportunity from close up in the first half, punished the visitors on 53 minutes with a header off a Tyrone Charles corner.

Another Charles corner on 72 minute and midfielder Keyon Edwards, too, was able to head free to secure the come-from-behind win.

Edwards’ former club Morvant Caledonia United, were unable to manage such a feat earlier in Couva after going under 4-2 against last season’s DPL runners-up W Connection.

Shahdon Winchester scored twice (3rd & 36th minutes) in the first half while teammates Jabari Mitchell (14th minute) and Jomal Williams (62nd minutes) each had a goal to put Connection comfortably ahead 4-0.

Pernell Schultz (63rd minute) and Kareem Joseph (68th minute) reduced the deficit for Caledonia, but on the wrong side of a 4-2 score, the Eastern Stallions are anchored at the bottom of the standings with just 4 points from 10 games.

Caledonia will return to action on Friday 15 January in Round Two Match Day Two against crosstown rivals San Juan Jabloteh from 6 p.m. at the Hasely Crawford Stadium followed by Defence Force against St. Ann’s Rangers from 8 p.m.

Also on Friday, Club Sando will host North East Stars from 6 p.m. at the Ato Boldon Stadium followed by Central FC against Point Fortin Civic from 8 p.m.

Police FC and W Connection will clash from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium in the lone game on Saturday 16 January.

Central chew on Civic but Balthazar beavertrick keeps Army ahead.
ttproleague.com.


Jason Marcano grabbed a first half hattrick last night to steer defending Digicel Pro League champions Central FC to an impressive 7-0 win over Point Fortin Civic at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

It was the highest scoring league win for the Couva Sharks this season, but second overall to current DPL leaders Defence Force, who demolished Morvant Caledonia United 8-0 on Jan. 8.

Defence Force (24 points) also enjoyed a win last night, crushing St. Ann’s Rangers 4-0 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium to maintain their three-point gap on second placed Central FC (21 points).

Defence Force veteran midfielder and current team captain, Jerwyn Balthazar, scored all goals to add a beavertrick to his, already exciting, season.

The 33-year-old Balthazar netted three times in the first half for the Army/Coast Guard combination before eclipsing his personal best this season –a hattrick in the win against Caledonia this month – by adding his fourth on the night, just over the hour mark.

While in Couva, Central were sparing no mercy against the visiting Civic.

Marcano scored in the 11th, 23rd and 43rd minutes, all off the assists of midfielder Sean De Silva, who ended the night with four assists and a goal.

De Silva intercepted a pass in midfield to set Marcano free and the veteran midfielder raced 25 yards towards goal before slipping his shot beyond Civic goalkeeper Miles Goodman and into the back of the net for a 1-0 Central lead.

Civic’s trouble doubled when Ataulla Guerra made it 2-0 on 17 minutes, finding the gap from inside the area by curling a right-footer into the far bottom corner following a De Silva pass.

The match was well out of Civic’s reach by the half, trailing 4-0, after Marcano added his second and third items in similar fashion by bundling in De Silva corners.

Former Civic star, Marcus Joseph added another Central goal on 64 minutes, beating a hapless Goodman from close up following a Guerra feed to put the score at 5-0.

And if that didn’t add insult to injury, Central’s interim head coach Dale Saunders threw in young forwards in the onslaught, replacing Joseph with Ricardo John; winger Darren Mitchell with Nicholas Dillion and Marcano with Kadeem Corbin.

John, just eleven minutes onto the pitch, snatched his debut goal for Central by netting on 77 minutes.

The 20-year-old John showed good speed and strength to hold off a challenge from defender Kern Peters, after running onto deep pass from defensive midfielder Elton John, before comfortably hitting past Goodman for a 6-0 score.

De Silva, who scored a double in a 3-0 league win over Civic on Sep. 26, wrapped up last night’s 7-0 win with a deserving item to top off a brilliant match performance. The former Trinidad and Tobago Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup player let off a powerful strike to beat Goodman at the near post after surprising defender Andrei Pacheco with speed and composure inside the box.

Earlier at the Couva venue, North East Stars edged Club Sando 1-0 for their second consecutive league win and third unbeaten since acquiring new coach Ross Russell earlier this month.

Gorean “Ratty” Highley gave the Sangre Grande outfit the valuable item on 71 minutes when he smashed a rebound into the roof of the net after Sando goalkeeper Kelvin Henry had made a superb save to deny the striker from the penalty spot.

Highley, now with four goals from the last three outings, was pulled down in the area by defender Coneal Thomas, forcing referee Dennis Changiah to point to the spot.

Sando, riding a three-game winning streak before kick-off, had an excellent equalising opportunity seven minutes later. But forward Kevon Woodley headed overbar off a well-placed Akeem Humphrey cross.

North East Stars had two late efforts through Chike Sullivan and Neveal Hackshaw, while Woodley had a solo attempt for Sando, however 1-0 it remained in favour of the visitors.

North East Stars climbed two spots up the ladder into third with 20 points, two points ahead of Police FC, who must tackle W Connection from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium today (Saturday).

Also at the Hasely Crawford Stadium last night, Morvant Caledonia United snapped a five-game slide by edging cross-town rivals San Juan Jabloteh 1-0 through a late Sheldon Holder goal.

The result, however, didn’t lift Caledonia off the bottom of the standings, but improved their points tally to 7 points, one less than Rangers and three away from Sando and Civic.

W Connection hold off Police in 6-goal thriller.
ttproleague.com.


W Connection had full points in hand with a 4-2 over Police FC when the dust cleared on Saturday afternoon in Malabar.

The result moved the Savonetta Boys up two spots into fourth on the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 standings with 19 points.

Defence Force are atop the ladder with 24 points followed by defending champions Central FC (21 points) and North East Stars (20 points).

Police had themselves to blame, despite a gutsy comeback attempt at the Larry Gomes Stadium, and walked away sore losers, dropping one spot into fifth with 18 points.

Defender Karlon Murray stuck an own-goal after 2 minutes, and two minutes later it was his giveaway in the area that allowed Connection forward Shahdon Winchester to make it 2-0 with his 7th league goal and 11th in all competitions this season.

Winchester was also involved in the opening goal, when his throw-in played Aikim Andrews in to deliver a dangerous cross, which Murray, in an attempt to win the ball, headed down into his own net.

Makesi Lewis pulled a goal back on 27 minutes for Police, netting his 11th league after pounding in a rebound from close up.

Goalkeeper Julani Archibald, who later stood out as a hero for Connection with three huge stops in the late stages, was only able to parry a powerful effort from Police fullback Kevin Lewis and Makesi made full use of the chance.

Archibald redeemed himself on the stroke of half-time by putting a powerful Makesi strike behind for a corner.

By then Connection had already restored their two-goal lead with a 3-1 score.

Neil Benjamin Jr. produced Connection’s third item on 35 minutes when he blasted a right-footer into the roof of second choice Police goalkeeper Keinol Paul’s net. Benjamin, who was later replaced injured, was unleashed down the right by Winchester and the winger’s speed was too much for a Police chase.

It was not until 58 minutes that Police sliced Connection’s lead again for a 2-3 score when fullback Dexter Alleyne bundled the ball over the line after Archibald had kept out a Murray header on the goal-line.

The Lawmen were inches shy of levelling the scores but an ambitious 35-yard blast from defender Elijah Belgrave clipped the outer side of the upright to the relief of Connection.

Police mounted a few more late raids but Archibald made three late shutouts to keep Connection in front.

Then with nine minutes of regular time left, Connection midfielder Jomal Williams completed the 4-3 win with his 12th goal in all competitions this season.

Paul, who made an excellent save to deny Connection substitute Jamal Charles on 77 minutes, was unable to get glove on Jomal’s curling strike after the midfielder was fed free on the left by Gerard Williams to seal the win.

Results

Police FC 2 (Makesi Lewis 27’, Dexter Alleyne 58’) vs W Connection 4 (Own Goal 2’, Shahdon Winchester 4’, Neil Benjamin Jr. 35’, Jomal Williams 81’)

Teams

Police FC: 22.Keinol Paul; 4.Karlon Murray, 6.Jibri Mc David (7.Clevon Mc Fee 55th minute), 9.Makesi Lewis, 10.Kareem Freitas, 12.Kevin Lewis (16.Keon Wilson 73rd minute), 14.Kaaron Foster, 17.Dexter Alleyne, 19.Christon Thomas, 20.Elijah Belgrave, 21.Todd Ryan (Capt.)

Kareem Freitas grabs three as Police run riot.
ttproleague.com.


Connection hits seven against Civic and Rangers hold N/E Stars; but D/Force and Central stay ahead

Kareem Freitas scored a hat-trick on Tuesday night as Police FC mauled Morvant Caledonia United 5-0 in the first game of a Digicel Pro League (DPL) double-header at the Marvin Lee Stadium.

The victory snapped a two-game losing slide by coach Richard Hood’s Lawmen, thanks to a first half brace by forward Freitas, who completed the rout and his hat-trick in stoppage-time with his 9th DPL goal this season.

But down at the Ato Boldon Stadium, in the second game of the Couva venue’s double-header, W Connection romped to a 7-1 win over Point Fortin Civic to occupy third position on the 2015-16 standings while Police, a point behind and also moving up one spot, took fourth position at the end of the Round Two Match Day Three slate of games.

It was the second straight outing that Civic have conceded seven goals after last Friday’s 7-0 loss against defending champions Central FC at the same venue.

Civic, now defeated in their last five games, got their lone item through forward Jamille Boatswain on 34 minutes. But the Point Fortin side were trailing in a 3-1 score at the half after being credited with an own goal just 3 minutes on and Connection adding a goal from Dwight Quintero on 9 minutes and Alvin Jones converting from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute.

In the second half Andre Toussaint made it 4-1 in the 53rd minute against his former employers before a double from Suriname forward Dimitrie Apai, netting in the 74th and 80th minutes, and an item from teenager Aikim Andrews in the 81st minute, completed the comfortable Connection win.

Connection may well be making clear their intent ahead of Sunday’s Couva Clasico against Central FC at the same venue.

Central were also in winners’ row on Tuesday night after holding off Club Sando 2-1 in the first game in Couva.

Forward Marcus Joseph and midfielder Ataulla Guerra scored in the 29th and 43rd minutes, respectively, for the Couva Sharks before Shaquille Holder pulled a goal back ten minutes from time for Sando.

The result saw Central join leaders Defence Force on 24 points for a temporary stint at the summit.

However Defence Force, in their bid to lift the 2015-16 DPL crown, restored their three-point lead with a 2-0 win over San Juan Jabloteh in the second game at the Marvin Lee Stadium.

Jabloteh goalie Shemel Louison made a penalty save with his legs on the half hour mark to keep out a poorly taken kick from Devorn Jorsling following a handball in the area.

However the Grenada national team custodian was unable to avoid defeat for the sixth placed Jabloteh after Defence Force found the back of the net twice in the second period.

Forward Brent Sam, recently honoured as last season’s Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL)’s Player of the Year, had Jabloteh’s best chances of the first half. But his audacious heeled attempt saw the ball roll wide in the 20th minute and he headed overbar off a deflected Nathan Lewis attempt four minutes from the break.

But Defence Force’s Jerwyn Balthazar, who will represent Trinidad and Tobago’s Futsal team over the next weekend, broke the deadlock on 56 minutes with his 10th DPL goal of the season.

Balthazar, coming off his beaver-trick performance last Friday, when he handed the leaders a 4-0 win over Rangers, towered the Jabloteh area to head in a Kishun Seecharan corner, after the latter forced Louison into a save and winning the corner.

Defence Force were denied a second item in the 65th minute when Jabloteh’s Jamaican playmaker Fabien Reid cleared substitute Jamali Garcia’s attempt off the line after a corner.

But in stoppage-time, Ross Russell Jr., who hammered high of the target on 66 minutes, sent a low strike into Louison’s far bottom corner after he was played into the area by substitute Hashim Arcia.

Earlier at the Macoya venue, Kareem Freitas put Police ahead 1-0 on 10 minutes with a well-executed strike into goalkeeper Marvin Phillip’s net following a feed into the area by midfielder Kaaron Foster.

That goal came one minute after Caledonia’s Kareem Joseph strike and a rebound effort from Sheldon Holder were both blocked out by Police defenders.

Similarly, Freitas made it 2-0 after Caledonia, again, failed to find the back of the net.

Police goalie Keinol Paul produced a one-handed save in the 35th minute to blank Caledonia winger Jameel Neptune in a one-on-one that should have levelled the scoring.

Paul did well again two minutes later with a low save to tip behind an Akim Armstrong attempt from the right.

Then on 39 minute Freitas handed Police the two-goal cushion when he lifted a strike into the roof of Phillip’s net from above the box after Todd Ryan had won the ball in a scrimmage.

Defender Anton Hutchinson made it 3-0 in the 61st minute when he knocked in a Christon Thomas free-kick swung in from the right after Phillip had made back-to-back saves on 54 minutes to deny Kevin Lewis and a rebound attempt from Mekesi Lewis.

Phillip was beaten again, this time left out to dry by his defence, when Thomas controlled off his chest before letting off a cheeky feed substitute Keon Wilson, who completed the task with a cool finish into the bottom corner for a 4-0 score.

Three minutes from the end of regular time substitute Kyle Bartholomew had an excellent opportunity to salvage a consolation item for Caledonia, however, the attacking midfielder volleyed a perfectly placed Sheldon Holder cross overbar.

Then in stoppage-time Freitas completed his hat-trick with a right-footed blast past Phillip after skipping away from a defender upon collecting a Wilson feed.

Police will return to action on Friday when they visit San Juan Jabloteh from 8 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium following a 6 pm kick-off between Defence Force and Club Sando.

North East Stars, who slipped two spots down into fifth on Tuesday after being held 0-0 by ninth placed St. Ann’s Rangers at the Larry Gomes Stadium, will next host Point Fortin Civic from 3:30 pm on Saturday at the same venue.

The Malabar venue will come alive again on Sunday, also from 3:30 pm, when St. Ann’s Rangers and Morvant Caledonia United meet in a bottom-of-the-table clash. Also on Sunday, the feature clash between rivals Central and W Connection kick-off from 4 pm in Couva.

Late Sando penalty goal denies D/Force full points.
ttproleague.com.


Defence Force’s attempt to extend a six-point lead at the top of the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 standings was flattened by Club Sando on Friday night.

Devon Modeste converted a 90th minute penalty kick to level the seventh positioned Club Sando to a 1-1 draw with Defence Force in the first game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

In the second game of the Couva double-header, which also ended with a converted penalty, San Juan Jabloteh, after letting a Sean Bonval-inspired two-goal cushion slip, bounced back to defeat Police FC 4-2.

Nathan Lewis, who ended the night with two goals and winning his side a 90th minute penalty kick, gave the sixth positioned Jabloteh a 1-0 lead after just 6 minutes, when he smashed in a rebound from close up.

Winger Sean Bonval, in his first start for the San Juan Kings, was brilliant in the opening stages, which included putting his team 2-0 up in the 9th minute with a headed goal from a throw in and rattling the crossbar on 20 minutes.

The 19-year-old Bonval was also instrumental in the opening item after his unstoppable run down the left and into the box created the scoring chance for striker Jamal Gay, who was denied by goalkeeper Paul before Lewis fired in the rebound.

However Police rebounded through a goal each from scoring aces Makesi Lewis and Kareem Freitas, separated by the break, to level the scores 2-2.

Lewis, who was denied a second two minutes from the half, was picked out at the centre of the area in the 37th minute by Jibri Mc David following a powerful run down the left, and fired in a left-footed strike past Jabloteh goalie Shemel Louison to reduce the deficit.

Freitas equalised on 49 minutes when his glancing header off a Christon Thomas free kick sunk into Louison’s goal.

Police were awarded the free-kick after Jabloteh left-back Jerome Mc Intyre had sent Kevin Lewis tumbling to ground. Lewis was replaced injured.

The excitement didn’t stop there.

Jabloteh were back in front 3-2 on the hour mark when Lewis, who had earlier been denied along with Gay by ‘keeper Paul, sent a strike beyond the Police goalie.

Paul was later ejected by a direct red card out of referee Nicholas Gloudon’s pocket after hacking down Lewis in the area on 90 minutes.

Jamaican defensive midfielder Adrian Reid stepped up to the spot and converted past defender Anton Hutchinson for a 4-2 score, putting a second comeback attempt out of Police’s reach.

Hutchinson had taken the responsibility of ‘keeper as Police, with first choice goalie Adrian Foncette currently on trials in Turkey, stood without a back-up goalkeeper on the substitutes’ bench.

Police substitute Keon Wilson had two bites of the cherry five minutes from time at the edge of the six-yard area but couldn’t find the back of the net.

And a minute earlier an attempted clearance by Jabloteh penalty scorer Fabian Reid sliced a dangerous Freitas cross onto his own crossbar, causing a scare for the eventual winners.

In the earlier game, referee Dennis Changiah pointed to the penalty spot, ruling a foul against Defence Force, who were two minutes away from stretching a six-point lead at the top of the DPL standings.

Goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke, who had made a superb 23rd minute save to deny Kevon Woodley, picked the correct side. But Modeste clinical penalty strike flew beyond the Clarke’s reach to earn the seventh positioned Sando their 11th point of the season.

While Defence Force (28 points), with their one point earned, are now four points clear of defending DPL champions Central FC (24 points), who must tackle last season’s runners-up W Connection (22 points) from 4 pm on Sunday at the same Ato Boldon Stadium.

Defence Force, without instrumental midfielder and the team’s top scorer this season, Jerwyn Balthazar, had broken the deadlock through a headed goal in the 57th minute from midfielder Sean Narcis, who failed to continue beyond the 83rd minute with suspected muscle spasm.

The veteran defensive midfielder put the ball past goalkeeper Kelvin Henry at the back post, but had right-back Curtis Gonzales to credit.

Gonzales provided the perfect delivery from a cross that left the Sando defence, including Henry beaten.

Twenty-seven-year-old pre-season acquisition, Hashim Arcia, got his first Defence Force start of the season in the absence of Balthazar, but definitely needs more time in shaking off the rust and becoming his old self.

Arcia created a 12th minute scoring chance for Ross Russell Jr., who fired wide, before sending a half-volleyed attempt just high on 24 minutes.

Defence Force substitute Kellon Serrette had the best chance to snatch victory after he was played towards goal in stoppage-time, but Sando goalkeeper who had much earlier blanked substitute Richard Roy, produced another shutout.

Balthazar along with midfielder Kerry Joseph are on international duty this weekend with the Trinidad and Tobago Futsal team in Cuba for Caribbean qualifying stage of the FIFA Futsal World Cup 2016.

Meanwhile action in the DPL will continue over the weekend.

On Saturday (today), fifth positioned North East Stars, tied on 21 points with fourth positioned Police, will welcome eight placed Point Fortin Civic (10 points) from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

The Larry Gomes Stadium will come alive again on Sunday from 3:30 pm with a bottom-of-the-table clash between ninth positioned St. Ann’s Rangers and bottom positioned Morvant Caledonia United.

While at the Ato Boldon Stadium, rivals Central and W Connection will battle in the latest Couva Clasico to complete the weekend fixtures.

Miles Goodman saves a penalty and wins Civic a point at N/E Stars.
ttproleague.com.


Goalkeeper Miles Goodman produced a second half penalty kick save on Saturday afternoon to rescue a point for Point Fortin Civic in a 0-0 draw with North East Stars.

The stalemate, however, didn’t come as a surprise after a lacklustre display by both teams, who might easily blame the early afternoon heat due to the 3:30 p.m. kick-off at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

But the home side, North East Stars, did have an excellent opportunity to take the lead on 59 minutes after referee Kevin Smart pointed to the spot for a handball in the area against Civic captain Kelvin Modeste.

However goalkeeper Goodman rescued the visitors with a low save on his left to keep out a poorly struck kick from Trinidad and Tobago international Neveal Hackshaw.

Ten minutes later Goodman produced another save, on the only other on-target attempt of the game, when he charged down a left-footed strike from 15-year-old North East Stars debutant Keshon Hackshaw.

Keshon, the cousin of Neveal Hackshaw, was one of two substitutes, including Gorean Highley, used in attack by coach Ross Russell in the final 30 minutes.

Both substitutes added late life to the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 Round Two Match Day Four fixture but weren’t enough to avoid a stalemate.

The result snapped a five-game losing streak for the eight positioned Civic (11 points), which included back-to-back defeats at Central FC (7-0) and W Connection (7-1), respectively.

Meanwhile North East Stars, now undefeated in their last five outings since the arrival of Russell, with two wins and three draws, moved up a spot into fourth on the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 standings with 22 points as third positioned W Connection.

Connection will meet second positioned defending champions Central FC (24 points) from 4 p.m. at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Sunday, with both teams attempting to close the gap on leaders Defence Force (28 points).

Also on Sunday, the Larry Gomes Stadium will come alive again from 3:30 pm with a bottom-of-the-table clash between ninth positioned St. Ann’s Rangers (9 points) and bottom positioned Morvant Caledonia United (7 points).

Guerra penalty goal ties Couva Clasico as 10-man Central and Connection share points.
ttproleague.com.


Ataulla Guerra converted a second half penalty, before teammate Jamal Jack was sent off, as Central FC rallied from a goal down to hold W Connection to a 1-1 draw in the latest Couva Clasico.

The result applied little pressure on Digicel Pro League 2015/16 leaders Defence Force, who were held to a surprising 1-1 draw by Club Sando on Friday night.

Defence Force are at the summit with 28 points, while defending champions Central FC and last season’s runners-up W Connection, occupying second and third, are 25 and 23 points, respectively.

Former Central FC forward Dwight Quintero fired Connection ahead eight minutes before the break on Sunday at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

The 22-year-old Quintero side-footed a Kurt Frederick cross into goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams’ far netting for only his 4th goal of the season in all competitions.

But on 64 minutes, Guerra, who flashed an effort inches overbar in the 15th minute, equalised from the spot with a clinical strike past W Connection second choice goalkeeper Terrence Lewis for his 7th goal in all domestic competitions this season.

Lewis started between the uprights in absence of regular goalie Julani Archibald. Archibald, St. Kitts/Nevis national team goalkeeper, due to a calve injury, joined forward Shahdon Winchester (hip) and winger Neil Benjamin Jr. (hamstring) on the injury list earlier this week.

Referee Callum Marshall awarded Central the kick from the spot after striker Marcus Joseph was brought down in the box by defender Gerard Williams.

“I’m not sure if the penalty was a good one, but I will review it on video,” said W Connection technical director/head coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier after the game.

Charles-Fevrier, though, conceded that his side made too many mistakes in possession, which Central dominated. But believes his side should have won the game.

“I thought we could have played better,” added the Connection coach, who led the Savonetta Boys to the First Citizens Cup (defeating Central in the final) and Toyota Classic (defeating Central in the semi-final round) this season.

“Although Central had more possession, they never really created any [scoring] chance.

“It was a game I felt we could have done better in our overall performance. We didn’t balance the game enough and made too many simple mistakes in possession. And because of that our attacks were infrequent. But all in all it’s a point we will have to accept and move on.”

Central’s Jack, who was booked six minutes before the break for a foul, received his second yellow card, followed by the subsequent red card, for a sliding tackle on Gerard Williams in an attempt to win the ball some 30 yards from the Connection goal on 73 minutes.

Connection with the numerical advantage got closest to a late winner when attacking midfielder Jomal Williams curled an attempt a whisker wide of the far upper corner after slipping past defender Akeem Benjamin in the area.

Goalkeeper Williams, who made a stop four minutes before the break to deny Frederick, could have done little had Jomal calibrated his strike a few inches left.

In the end, 1-1 it stood, the same as it ended when both teams met in Round One of the DPL last November.

“Although we wanted the win… we will take the draw,” said Central FC interim coach Dale Saunders at the end of his first Couva Clasico in charge.

Saunders, who now stands unbeaten after six games since taking occupying the position in December, continued, “We dominated possession but didn’t take advantage of it. Connection got a well-taken goal but we changed things in the second half and got the [equalising] goal and I thought we could have gotten another goal. But we had a player sent off.

“Considering having a player sent off and Connection not being easy opponents, we accept the result.”

On the opposite end of the league table, Morvant Caledonia United moved off the bottom with a 2-1 win over St. Ann’s Rangers on Sunday at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

A first half brace by Sheldon Holder, netting in the 14th and 33rd minutes, did the trick for Caledonia although Rangers pulled a goal back through Kadeem Hutchinson on 35 minutes.

Rangers, now at the bottom with 9 points, will next face W Connection from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday, Caledonia, with 10 points in ninth, will meet fourth positioned North East Stars (22 points) from 6 p.m. at the Ato Boldon Stadium, followed by Central FC versus sixth positioned San Juan Jabloteh from 8 p.m. at the Couva venue.

Results

St. Ann’s Rangers 1 (Kadeem Hutchinson 35’) vs Morvant Caledonia United 2 (Sheldon Holder 14’, 33’)

Central FC 1 (Ataulla Guerra 64’ penalty) vs W Connection 1 (Dwight Quintero 38’)

Defence Force go six points clear in Pro League.
ttproleague.com.


Jemel Sebro and Ross Russell Jr. shine as Defence Force punish Police goalkeeping troubles
Modeste nets double as Sando whip Civic in Mahaica


Defence Force extended their lead at the top of the Digicel Pro League standings by six points on Tuesday with a comfortable 4-0 win over Police FC at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

Wingers Jemel Sebro and Ross Russell Jr. each grabbed a first half double for the Army/Coast Guard combination, while fifth positioned Police (21 points), facing continued goalkeeping problems, finished empty handed.

The win puts the Marvin Gordon coached-Defence Force’s tally at 31 points at the top of the standings – six points clear of defending champions and second positioned Central FC (25 points) – and undefeated in their last nine league games.

Central, however, will attempt to slice Defence Force’s lead when they tackle sixth positioned San Juan Jabloteh (20 points) from 8 p.m. on Wednesday 27 Jan. at the Ato Boldon Stadium, following a 6 p.m. kick-off between ninth positioned Morvant Caledonia United (10 points) and fourth positioned North East Stars (22 points) at the Couva venue.

Also on Wednesday, W Connection (23 points), occupying third position, must travel to the Larry Gomes Stadium against bottom-of-the-table St. Ann’s Rangers from 3:30 p.m. with a chance at closing in on Defence Force.

Defence Force were last defeated by Police FC on Dec. 11 in Round One. That match ended 1-0 with a 70th minute Makesi Lewis goal.

But on Tuesday, revenge was the motivation as Defence Force completed the 4-0 rout before the break.

Sebro, making the best of a rare start this season, scored in the 14th and 18th minutes for the soldiers before supplying the perfect cross for Russell Jr., who scored on 27 minutes, to head past Police debuting goalkeeper Perry O’Connor to complete his double five minutes before the break.

Sebro, however, was unable to continue beyond the 66th minute after he was brought down on the right by Police defender Dexter Alleyne.

Five minutes earlier, following a play started on the left involving Sebro, Hashim Arcia was denied by the legs of O’Connor from close up after an return pass from striker Jorsling.

But that didn’t avoid a nightmare professional debut for the 20-year-old O’Connor, a former Diego Martin North Secondary and Petit Valley United goalkeeper, who got the nod due to problems in the Police goalkeeping department.

First choice goalie Adrian Foncette is away on trials in Turkey for the past couple weeks, while second choice Reinol Paul was suspended for the encounter due to a red card he picked up in Friday’s 4-2 loss against San Juan Jabloteh.

“It would be easy to blame the goalkeeper (O’Connor) for today’s result,” said Police head coach Richard Hood. “But that wasn’t the full problem. I can admit that O’Connor didn’t look as good as he did in training yesterday that gave him the pick ahead of Akeemo Williams. But we can’t blame him.

“We lacked discipline as a team. We had to change the dynamics of the team because [defender] Jibri Mc David is suspended on cards accumulation and winger Kevin Lewis is out with a fractured scapula he picked up in a foul on him last Friday. We were forced to play a few players out of their regular positions and they clearly had the incorrect attitude about it.

“We did improve in the second half but weren’t great,” ended Hood, who believes his side should have shown more professionalism on the day.

Police forward and this season’s leading DPL scorer with 14 goals, Makesi Lewis, had the best scoring opportunity for the Lawmen in the 73rd minute but Defence Force goalie Sheldon Clarke did well to put the effort behind for a corner.

Defence Force also had late scoring opportunities but Arcia lifted a half volley overbar in the 75th minute and in the final minute of play double-scorer Russell, now with 7 league goals this season, failed to increase his tally when he struck high following a solo move down the right.

Down at the Mahica Oval on Tuesday night, Devon Modeste scored on either side of the break as Club Sando defeated home side Point Fortin Civic 3-1 in a bottom-half clash and improved their position at seventh with 14 points.

Modeste converted his second penalty in the last five days when he put the visitors ahead on 19 minutes before Shaquille Holder made it 2-0 in the 22th minute.

Jamille Boatswain reduced the deficit for the home side in the 51st minute, but couldn’t avoid the eight positioned Civic’s seventh straight game without a win.

Civic (11 points) last won a game on Dec. 15 when they edged Morvant Caledonia United 1-0.

Results

Defence Force 4 (Jemel Sebro 14’, 18’, Ross Russell Jr. 27’, 40’) vs Police FC 0; at the Larry Gomes Stadium

Central trounce Jabloteh 5-0 to slice D/Force lead.
ttproleague.com.


W Connection keeps pace after edging Rangers and Caledonia stun 10-man N/E Stars

Central FC cruised to a 5-0 win over San Juan Jabloteh on Wednesday night to slice the six-point lead of Digicel Pro League 2015/16 leaders Defence Force in half.

Defence Force (31 points) moved six clear of defending champions and second positioned Central on Tuesday afternoon with a 4-0 win over Police.

But a first minute goal from winger Darren Mitchell sent the Couva Sharks on their way to maximum points in the second game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Wednesday.

Granting the sixth-positioned Jabloteh (20 points) only tipped over when flood gates opened beyond the hour mark as Central FC forward Marcus Joseph (65th minute) and midfielders Nathaniel Garcia (66th minute), Ataulla Guerra (73rd minute) and Sean De Silva (75th minute) each got on the scoresheet.

The win improved Central, now on a seven-game unbeaten run and led by interim coach Dale Saunders, on 28 points—three points ahead of third positioned W Connection (26 points), who edged cellar-positioned St. Ann's Rangers 2-1 earlier at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Wednesday.

Jomal Williams scored one and set up another for the Savonetta Boys before an improved Rangers side, since both sides last met on Dec. 12, pulled a goal back through Trevin Latapy.

Jomal, who scored a hattrick in a 5-0 win over Rangers in their last meeting, notched his 8th league of the season and 13th goal in all competitions on 27 minutes after he was fed in the area by Andre Toussaint.

The 21-year-old star Connection midfielder later picked out Triston Hodge with a cross from the left on 52 minutes and Hodge was clinical in heading past Rangers goalie Christopher Biggette.

Two minutes later Connection goalkeeper Terrence Lewis was forced into an excellent save when he pushed behind a powerfully-struck Sayid Freitas free-kick to preserve the Savonetta Boys’ two-goal cushion.

That was until Trevin Latapy sliced Connection’s lead 2-1 with a powerful blast in the 65th minute off a rebound to find the back of Lewis’ net from inside the area.

Lewis was unable to recover after pulling off a superb save to deny Kadeem Hutchinson following an initial effort from Argentine midfielder Miguel Romeo was blocked out by a Connection defender.

The item, though, came as redemption for Rangers after a handball shout in the Connection area went ignored on 57 minutes.

Connection had a late attempt after Jomal made little work of right-back Jameel Antoine before unleashing substitute Jamal Charles into the area on 90 minutes, but Biggette provided a low save to deny the Savonetta Boys a third.

In Wednesday’s other result, Morvant Caledonia United continued their rise off the bottom with a 3-1 win over 10-man North East Stars.

Midfielder Akim Andrews put Caledonia ahead in the first minute of play before Jomoul Francois equalised on 19 minutes for North East Stars.

Longstanding Caledonia captain Kareem Joseph made it 2-1 on 25 minutes which took the stallions into the break on top and on their way to a fourth league win this season.

North East Stars chances of a second comeback-goal was dampened in the 73rd minute when forward Gorean "Ratty" Highley was issued a direct red card by referee Crystal Sobers for violent conduct.

And eight minutes from time Pernell Schultz completed the 3-1 Caledonia win from the penalty spot after a handball in the area by Stars.

The win, Caledonia’s second in a row, moved Stallions up a spot into eight-position on the 10-team table with 13 points, while North East Stars remain fourth with 22 points.

Caledonia will next face Club Sando from 6 p.m. at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Friday, followed by an 8 p.m. kick-off between Central FC and Police FC.

Also on Friday, Point Fortin Civic will welcome leaders Defence Force from 6 p.m. at the Mahaica Oval.

The action continues over the weekend with Rangers against Jabloteh from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Saturday, and on Sunday, with the same kick-off time and venue, North East Stars will welcome W Connection, currently on a five-game unbeaten stretch.

Results

St. Ann’s Rangers 1 (Trevin Latapy 65’) vs W Connection 2 (Jomal Williams 27’, Triston Hodge 52’); at the Larry Gomes Stadium

Morvant Caledonia United 3 (Akim Armstrong 1’, Kareem Joseph 25’, Pernell Schultz 82’ penalty) vs North East Stars 1 (Jomoul Francois 19’); at the Ato Boldon Stadium

Joseph double puts Central within one point of Army; Sando edge Caledonia.
ttproleague.com.


Defending Digicel Pro League champions Central FC moved within one point of current leaders Defence Force after a 3-0 win over Police FC on Friday night.

Striker Marcus Joseph scored twice in the Couva Sharks’ second half scoring spree in the second game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium after Defence Force were held to a 0-0 stalemate at home to ninth-positioned Point Fortin Civic at the Mahaica Oval.

The result in Point Fortin put Defence Force at 32 points, while, with maximum points earned in Couva, Central, who ended with 10 men after a second yellow card sending off of captain Jamal Jack, took their tally to 31 points.

W Connection are third with 26 points and will travel to the Larry Gomes Stadium on Sunday against fourth-positioned North East Stars from 3:30 p.m.

Joseph, with the help of some luck, fired in a laser on 52 minutes to beat Police goalkeeper Keinol Paul for a 1-0 Central lead from 25 yards out.

Joseph, who was denied by Paul in the 38th minute and lifted another attempt overbar three minutes later, attempted to find Ataulla Guerra on the left, but the intercepted pass was back into the path of the Central forward who capitalised from distance.

A minute later Paul denied Joseph a second, putting a rebound effort behind for a corner after defender Dexter Alleyne had cleared off the line to keep out an overhead attempt by Jason Marcano.

But on 55 minutes Central grabbed a 2-0 cushion when Tobago-born winger Darren Mitchell fired past Paul from inside the area following a Guerra feed.

Police had matched Central in a keenly contested first half, but crumbled in the second and the third goal came in bizarre fashion.

Central goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams launched a free-kick from midway in his own half in the 67th minute and the ball, to some extent, skidded off the head of Joseph before entering the Police net for a 3-0 score and Joseph’s eight league goal this season.

It was the final blow for Police, slumping to their third consecutive loss, although maintaining fifth position with 21 points.

Central, though, lost defensive midfielder Jack to his second yellow card with ten minutes left following a dangerous tackle on Police forward Makesi Lewis.

In the earlier contest at the Couva venue, utility player Devon Modeste earned Club Sando a hard-fought 1-0 win over Morvant Caledonia United, quelling the visitors attempt of a third straight win.

Modeste netted on 65 minutes against his past employers for his fourth league goal this season, but it was the heroics of goalkeeper Kelvin Henry that really stood in Caledonia’s way.

Henry produced excellent saves to deny Kareem Joseph on either side of the half and Akim Armstrong on the hour mark, all after Caledonia’s Gregory President had clipped the crossbar with a headed attempt off a Joseph corner in the 26th minute, and four minutes later Joseph had sent a free-kick just wide of the bottom corner.

Caledonia, too, had their goalkeeper Marvin Phillip to praise for the least embarrassing score-line.

The Trinidad and Tobago goalie made a point blank save just four minutes into the game to put a Kevon “Showtime” Woodley attempt out for a corner, and in the 36th minute Phillip made back-to-back saves to deny Akeem Humphrey and Bradley Nestor, respectively.

In the end, Sando maintained seventh position with an improved 17 points, four points ahead of eight positioned Caledonia, and three points behind sixth positioned San Juan Jabloteh, who must tackle cellar-placed St. Ann’s Rangers from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium today (Saturday).

Jabloteh survives courageous Rangers claw back attempt.

San Juan Jabloteh walked away with maximum three points on Saturday afternoon with a 3-2 win, but not as Kings after nervously avoiding a courageous claw back attempt by cellar-placed St. Ann’s Rangers.

With the result, the Keith Jeffrey-coached Jabloteh (23 points) hurdled North East Stars (22 points) for fourth position on the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 standings.

However Sangre Grande-based Stars will attempt a return to the top-four when they welcome third-place W Connection from 3:30 p.m. at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Sunday.

Nineteen-year-old Jabloteh attacker Sean Bonval scored one and set up another, scored by Jamal Gay, for an early two-goal cushion before Jamaican defender Adrian Reid made it 3-0 from the penalty spot before the break.

But Rangers, possibly triggered by the half-time advice from coach Angus Eve, stormed back in the second half with goals from Keron Cornwall and Kadeem Hutchinson, and were denied an equalising goal two minutes from time by Jabloteh goalie Shemel Louison.

Bonval, a former Rangers youth player, handed the San Juan Kings a 1-0 lead just six minutes into the clash at the Larry Gomes Stadium with a curling strike from the edge of the box to beat Rangers goalkeeper Christopher Biggette.

And striker Jamal Gay made it 2-0 on 15 minutes with a simple finish into Biggette’s far bottom corner following a feed from Bonval.

It seemed the end for Rangers six minutes from the half when Adrian Reid converted from the penalty spot for a 3-0 score after Jordan Devonish was tripped inside the area by defender Shaquille Moses.

But just three minutes inside the second period Cornwall reduced the Rangers’ deficit 1-3 with a delightful free-kick goal from 25 yards out.

Then on 63 minutes Hutchinson added a second Rangers’ item for a 3-2 score when his strike from close range had too much sting for the glove of Louison.

However it was Louison that had the last say, denying midfielder Kevon Piper from close range in the 88th minute as Jabloteh held on for the win.

It was Piper’s third on-target attempt on the afternoon after his 21st minute strike was cleared off the line by defender Adrian Reid and four minutes later saw his header tipped overbar by Louison.

Despite their spirited effort, Rangers remain at the bottom with 9 points.

W Connection humiliate N/E Stars 7-0 to close gap on D/Force.
ttproleague.com.


W Connection were in top form on Sunday, annihilating North East Stars 7-0 in a lopsided affair at the Larry Gomes Stadium, and in the process eclipsing a 7-1 performance they achieved against Point Fortin Civic on January 19.

A double each from 19-year-old Shannon Gomez and 21-year-old Jomal Williams, and one each from 21-year-old Dimitrie Apai, veteran Andre Toussaint and 19-year-old Aikim Andrews ensured coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s side stacked up on confidence ahead of the two-week Carnival break with their biggest win margin of the season.

The win improved Connection's hold on third place on the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 standings with 29 points, three points off leaders Defence Force (32 points) and one point behind second-place and defending champions Central FC (31 points). While North East Stars, now winless in their last four outings, remain fifth with 22 points—one less than fourth-place San Juan Jabloteh (23 points).

Conversely, Sunday's result was the Sangre Grande based North East Stars biggest league defeat of the season since a 6-1 loss to Defence Force on December 19 under previous coach Roland Clarke.

Defence Force holds the biggest league win of the season with an 8-0 victory over Morvant Caledonia United on January 8, equalling North East Stars result over Super League side Siparia Spurs in the preliminary round of this season’s Toyota Classic on November 4, 2015.

Although now led by two-time Defence Force Pro League-winning coach Ross Russell and former Dundee United and 2006 Trinidad and Tobago attacker Collin Samuel as assistant coach, North East Stars failed to put up resistance against the side that defeated them 3-0 in both Round One of the league and in the quarter-final round of the Toyota Classic this season.

Jomal Williams fired the Savonetta Boys ahead on 14 minutes by beating Stars’ second choice goalie Shane Mattis from inside the area, while regular number one Cleon John looked on from the bench.

There was no let-up from the visitors and Surinamese international forward Apai made it 2-0 four minutes later when he fired in a Kurt Frederick cross at the back post.

Connection’s quickness in the attacking third – even without the services of Shahdon Winchester and Neil Benjamin, who are sidelined due to injury along with first choice goalie Julani Archibald – produced three more goals before the break after proving too much for the North East Stars defence.

Shannon Gomez snatched a double – his first Connection goals of the season – before the half, first firing in a Dwight Quintero feed following a flowing move by Connection on 31 minutes, then rounded defender Glenton Wolfe before slotting the ball past the Stars’ goalie in stoppage-time of the first half for a 5-0 score.

Gomez also had an assist when his cross in the 37th minute was met by Toussaint ahead of Mattis with a volley into the North East Stars net.

The veteran playmaker Toussaint taking goal tally to six goals in all competitions this season, inclusive of a goal in each of the three games against North East Stars. 

Mattis was hung out to dry again by his defence after producing two saves to deny Jomal, who wrapped up his double in the 65th minute.

St. Lucia international fullback Frederick dispatched another brilliant cross beyond Mattis and Jomal, for his 10th league goal and 15th in all competitions this season, did well to get into position to head into the net for a 6-0 score.

Two minutes later Jomal and Gomez later linked up in the box before the latter provided a pass that allowed 19-year-old substitute Aikim Andrews to blast the ball into Mattis’ top corner to wrap up the 7-0 dominance.

Another Connection substitute, Jamal Charles, who replaced forward Dwight Quintero just over the hour mark, was denied by Mattis on his first touch after a defence-splitting pass from Toussaint on 77 minutes.

However Mattis and his North East Stars teammates will have the next two weeks, with the help of their coaching staff and maybe the mid-season transfer window (January 29 – February 26) to try prepare for their next game against leaders Defence Force when action resumes on the weekend of February 12-14, while W Connection will face San Juan Jabloteh.

Results

North East Stars 0 vs W Connection 7 (Jomal Williams 14’, 65’, Dimitrie Apai 18’, Shannon Gomez 31’, 45’+2, Andre Toussaint 37’, Aikim Andrews 67’); at Larry Gomes Stadium

Ryan snatches late double in Police five-star win over Sando.
ttproleague.com.


Toussaint goal lifts Connection level with D/Force after edging Jabloteh

Police FC snapped a three-game losing streak with a comprehensive 5-0 hammering of Club Sando on the resumption of the Digicel Pro League, following the Carnival break, on Friday night.

Police team captain and veteran midfielder Todd Ryan scored a late double at the Ato Boldon Stadium to put the icing on the cake after first-half goals from Kadeem Riley, Kareem Freitas and Makesi Lewis had the seventh-placed Sando spinning out before the break.

The result pushed the Lawmen up two spots into fourth on the standings with 24 points, one point ahead of San Juan Jabloteh, who slipped a spot into fifth before being edged 2-1 against W Connection in the second game of the Couva double-header.

Connection veteran midfielder Andre Toussaint snatched the winner on 66 minutes to lift the Savonetta Boys up a spot into second with 32 points, but only behind DPL leaders Defence Force on a lesser goal-difference (26 to 32).

Defence Force, however, will attempt to pull away by the end of this weekend when they visit fifth-placed North East Stars from 3:30 pm on Sunday at the Larry Gomes Stadium, while defending champions Central FC, dropping in third with 31 points, will take on eight-placed Morvant Caledonia United from 4 pm on the same day at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Connection, though, lead the Akeem Adams Round Two with 19 points from six wins and one draw, while Central and Defence Force are second and third with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

Jomal Williams fired Connection ahead in the 16th minute for his 11th league goal this season from the edge the area to find goalkeeper Shemel Louison’s bottom corner.

But eight minutes later Jabloteh’s diminutive midfield talent, Jamaican Fabian Reid, equalised with a chipped goal over goalkeeper Julani Archibald to put the score at 1-1.

Striker Jamal Gay had an excellent opportunity to put Jabloteh in front on 54 minutes, but his effort was charged down by defender Kevon Goddard.

Winger Nathan Lewis had produced a brilliant run from the half, showing off his lightning speed and skill to evade Triston Hodge and Gerard Williams along the way, before entering the area and squaring a pass to Gay.

It would haunt Jabloteh later when Toussaint turned in a deflected Shannon Gomez cross seconds after Louison had pushed behind a Shahdon Winchester header for a corner.

Winchester, goalkeeper Archibald and second half substitutes Alvin Jones and Neil Benjamin, who was denied by the legs of Louison two minutes after the restart, marked their return from injury in coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s seventh straight unbeaten game.

In the earlier game, Police, led by assistant coach Andy Roberts in the absence of head coach Richard Hood who is on international duty as coach of the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Team currently in the US for Rio 2016 Olympic qualifiers, made clear their intent from early on.

Winger Riley put Police in front 1-0 on 15 minutes when his in-swinging corner proved too much for the gloves of goalkeeper Kelvin Henry before entering the Sando net.

Kareem Freitas then doubled the advantage in the 26th minute on a quick counterattack involving Kaaron Foster and Makesi Lewis, with the latter slipping the final pass to strike partner Freitas to make it 2-0 with his 11th league goal of the season.

Lewis, this season’s leading league scorer, got to his 14th goal by converting from the spot for a 3-0 lead four minutes before the break, by which time already outperforming a 2-0 win achieved over Sando on Dec. 18 in round one.

Referee Rodphin Harris awarded the penalty, ruling that Lewis was fouled in the area by defender Corneal Thomas. Sando disputed Harris’ decision after both players went to ground with knocks to their heads but the protest only resulted in Kemuel Rivers joining Thomas on the caution list.

Rivers’ frustration spilled over in the 88th minute as his side struggled to find a way back and Harris awarded the full-back his second yellow card, quickly followed by the red, following a dangerous tackle on Police substitute midfielder Devon Jamerson.

Goalkeeper Jason Belfon, one of four Grenada national team signings in the transfer window (January 29-Februay 26) made by Sando, was forced into his debut immediately after the break, while Spice Boys teammate Rickson Phillip was introduced late up front.

Regular goalie Kelvin Henry was injured after colliding with Grenada national team captain and another Sando debutant, Shannon Phillip, in a desperate attempt to avert danger just before the half. But Belfon, despite getting glove to two Todd Ryan attempts, failed to prevent the goals.

Ryan made it 4-0 with a 23-yard free-kick, beating the glove of Belfon. And to add salt to the wounds of Sando, the Police team captain got to his double for the 5-0 finish in open play with another strike off the fingers of Belfon.

The weekend fixtures continue today (Saturday) with Point Fortin Civic welcoming St. Ann’s Rangers from 5 pm at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin.

Central take Pro League lead after D/Force’s Valentine’s Day slip.
ttproleague.com.


Jean-Luc Rochford announced his return to North East Stars with a Valentine’s Day corner-kick goal against Defence Force before both sides walked away with a point in Sunday’s 1-1 draw.

The failure to bag full points saw Defence Force (33 points) slip off the top and into second, just one point ahead of W Connection, after defending champions and the former side of Rochford, Central FC (34 points), leapfrogged both teams to move to the summit.

Central, also in action on Sunday, edged Morvant Caledonia United 2-1 at the Ato Boldon Stadium as interim head coach Dale Saunders stretched his unbeaten run to eight games since taking over from sacked coach Ross Russell in mid-December.

Marcus Joseph fired the Couva Sharks ahead on 18 minutes before defender Ranaldo Bailey put Caledonia level in the 45th minute.

But a late winner –with two minutes of regular-time left – by midfielder Jason Marcano ensured Central continued their upward thrust with a third straight win while benefitting from Defence Force’s earlier draw at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

Rochford, a former Trinidad and Tobago FIFA Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup player, with the knack for special goals, which includes T&T’s first ever U-20 World Cup goal in 2009, found the back of the Defence Force net with his direct kick from the corner to put North East Stars ahead on 33 minutes.

Rochford’s corner kick entered the top near corner following a bit of indecisiveness between goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke and his defensive guard at the goal-line.

Rochford, who also had previous stints at San Juan Jabloteh, Caledonia and North East Stars, re-joined the Sangre Grande club as part of coach Ross Russell’s January/February transfer window signings that includes 34-year-old former Scotland-based attacker and T&T 2006 World Cup player, Collin Samuel, returning Stars midfielder Kion Joseph, Kerry Daniel and Anthony Guppy.

Rochford, who had memorable goals at previous clubs including Caledonia’s first-ever Caribbean Club Championship goal, was denied a second item on Sunday when his free-kick from 24-yards out cannoned off the base of the upright.

However Rochford, who was later replaced in the 75th minute by Taryk Sampson, turned hero-to-villain when his foul on the Defence Force substitute Kerry Joseph led to the Army/Coast Guard combination’s equalising-goal in the 66th minute.

Joseph, known for his pin-point crossing, whipped his free-kick towards the back post to find a waving Jamali Garcia, who headed the ball back across goalkeeper Cleon John’s six-yard area allowing Aklie Edwards to head home at the goalmouth.

North East Stars, winless in their last five games, continues to occupy sixth-place and tied on 23 points with fifth-placed San Juan Jabloteh.

Police FC, 5-0 winners over Club Sando on Friday, are fourth with 24 points, while, in descending order, Sando (17 points), Point Fortin Civic, Caledonia (13 points) and St. Ann’s Rangers (10 points) occupy the bottom end of the standings.

Rangers, already achieving twice the tally they achieved in last season’s bottom-of-the-table finish, held 10-man home side Point Fortin Civic to a late 1-1 draw on Saturday at Mahaica Oval.

Glenn Sutton put Civic ahead on 88 minutes after teammate Shaquille Stewart was sent off in the 74th minute to a second yellow card.

However winger Kevon Piper made certain Rangers didn’t leave Point Fortin empty handed after tying the game in the fourth minute of stoppage-time, denying Civic a win in their last nine games.

Civic will return to action on Tuesday 16 February against Caledonia from 8 pm at the Marvin Lee Stadium following a 6 pm kick-off between Defence Force and W Connection in a top-of-the-table clash.

Simultaneously at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Tuesday, Police will welcome Rangers from 6 pm, before Central and North East Stars lock horns in coach Russell’s first match against his former employers.

And on Wednesday in a lone fixture at the Larry Gomes Stadium, Jabloteh and Sando will meet from 3:30 pm.

Results

Point Fortin Civic 1 (Glenn Sutton 88’) vs St. Ann’s Rangers 1 (Kevon Piper 90’+4)

North East Stars 1 (Jean-Luc Rochford 33’) vs Defence Force 1 (Aklie Edwards 66’); at Larry Gomes Stadium

Penalty goal gives Jabloteh edge over new-look Sando.
ttproleague.com.


San Juan Jabloteh bounced back after letting in own-goal to defeat Club Sando 2-1 at the Larry Gomes Stadium this afternoon (Wednesday) in their Round Two Match Day Eight clash of the 2015/16 Digicel Pro League.

Sando went ahead on 65 minutes through an own-goal credited to Jabloteh midfielder Keyon Edwards after an attempt by defender Jerome Mc Intyre to clear a dangerous Ryan Frederick cross, cannoned the ball off his teammate and back into goalkeeper Shemel Louison’s net.

But Jabloteh, who hammered Sando 6-0 when both sides met on Dec. 15 in Round One, levelled the scores 1-1 through Garth Thomas before Jamaican Adrian converted from the penalty spot to secure full points for the Keith Jeffrey coached-side.

Jabloteh remains fifth but with an improved tally of 26 points, one point behind fourth-placed Police FC but 11 points away from leaders and defending champions, Central FC.

Jeffrey’s decision to push defender Garth Thomas in the middle while introducing January/February transfer window signing Akeem Benjamin from Central FC in right-back at the expense of forward Sean Bonval, paid off.

Thomas, set free into the area by a through-ball, fired Jabloteh level in the 70th minute on the second bite at goal after Sando goalkeeper Jason Belfon had parried the initial attempt.

Belfon along with Grenada national teammates, cousins Shannon and Moron Phillip, and Rickson Phillip were part of five key transfer window signings started by a new-look Sando today.

Sando regular starting goalie Kelvin Henry was an unused substitute along with defenders Corneal Thomas and Amrit Gildharry and midfielder Shaquille Holder, while attackers Kevon Woodley, Akeem Humphrey and Devon Modeste were used within the final 30 minutes.

However it was Sando’s Grenada quartet’s fellow countryman and national teammate, Shemel Louison in goal for Jabloteh who enjoyed victory under the sunshine.

Sando’s recent signing, 20-year-old United States-born attacker Bradley Nestor had the best attempt on Louison’s goal when his free-kick flashed overbar midway into the first half, moments after Jabloteh’s Nathan Lewis struck the Sando upright on the opposite end with a cheeky attempt to beat Belfon at the near upright.

Belfon was later unable to meet Fabian Reid’s well-struck penalty strike in the 75th minute and Jabloteh were in front 2-1.

Referee Keilon Bacchus awarded the penalty after Kennedy Hinkson, who was tripped just outside the edge of the box by defender Kevon Neaves, went skidding into the area.

Sando contested the penalty decision but Bacchus’ judgement was final, while Jabloteh felt compensated after only winning a free-kick at the edge of the area three minutes into the second period after arguing that Bonval was tripped inside the box by the same Neaves.

Jabloteh will return to the Larry Gomes Stadium on Sunday against North East Stars, while Sando must face W Connection on the same day. Both games kick off from 3:30 pm.

Results

Defence Force 0 vs W Connection 1 (Jabari Mitchell 90’), at Marvin Lee Stadium;

Morvant Caledonia United 2 (Sheldon Holder 10’, Kareem Joseph 90’+1) vs Point Fortin Civic 0, at Marvin Lee Stadium;

Central move five points clear with Akeem Adams Trophy in hand.
ttproleague.com


Central FC’s excellent run of form has reached a new high—five points clear at the top of the Digicel Pro League standings with an 11-game undefeated streak and the Round Two Akeem Adams Trophy in hand—after defeating cellar-placed St. Ann’s Rangers 3-1 on Saturday.

Marcus Joseph and Kadeem Corbin both scored in the second half to seal Central’s fifth consecutive win after new Rangers’ signing Johan Peltier had made it 1-1 on 28 minutes following Leston Paul’s opening item in the 15th minute at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

Joseph, now with 10 league goals this season, netted in his fifth consecutive game to return Central’s lead on 56 minutes before Corbin snatched his first ever Couva Sharks goal in the 90th minute.

The victory improved Central’s place at the top of the league standings to 40 points, while hurdling rivals W Connection, who were defeated 2-0 by Club Sando simultaneously at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, by one point to retain the Akeem Adams Trophy which is awarded to the team with the highest points tally from Round Two in the league.

“In open play it’s really hard to beat us,” said Central FC director of operations Kevin Harrison prior to Saturday’s win over Rangers. “…unless there is a lack in concentration. While people may think it’s not the best squad we have, it’s the best system that we have played since the club was formed.

“The concept of our performances are based on high intensity play, and closing down the opponents quickly. We aspire towards the system of Bayern Munich.”

Central are unbeaten since sacking Ross Russell as coach in mid-December and installing assistant coach Dale Saunders as interim head coach, while managing director Brent Sancho and his Trinidad and Tobago 2006 World Cup teammate Stern John serves as assistant coaches.

Harrison added, “Brent, and Stern, coming in voluntarily, are assisting Dale with the wealth of knowledge and experience they have. But there are underlying factors under the new regime. They had a look into the squad and the moral of the players to get a better understanding. There is now a great level of respect on the training ground with every player working hard and the team is now gelling better.”

Connection’s prior two-point lead in the race for the Akeem Adams Trophy was reduced to nothing in their final Round Two game after Sando scored twice in a four-minute spell to inflict a second league upset over the Savonetta Boys on Saturday.

Devon Modeste, scorer in a 1-0 win over Connection in Round One on Jan. 9, converted from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute to put Sando ahead 1-0.

Referee Keilon Bacchus pointed to the spot after Sando midfielder Ryan Frederick, in an attack towards goal, was tripped in the area by Briel Thomas. A minute later Thomas tried to redeem himself with a header off a Shahdon Winchester cross but Sando goalkeeper Jason Belfon—one of four Grenada national team signings made by Sando in the mid-season transfer window—did well to clear the ball away from goal.

However Sando doubled the advantage 2-0 in the 56th minute through Kevon “Showtime” Woodley.

Woodley smashed a low Jesse Downing right-side cross beyond goalkeeper Julani Archibald and into the net after the cross had beaten the legs of defender Daneil Cyrus in his first game back for Connection after a loan stint with MLS outfit Chicago Fire last year.

Ten minutes later Archibald made a brilliant save to equal a lob-attempt from distance by Modeste.

But Connection were left reeling in frustration after being denied three times by the frame in the second half.

Not long after the break, a Kurt Frederick cross skidded off Belfon’s crossbar and in the 78th minute substitute Akeem Garcia rattled the bar from inside the area.

Garcia tried his luck again with a curling attempt from above the area but was just wide of the top corner eight minutes from time.

Connection finally conceded snapping their eight-game undefeated streak after Winchester headed onto the crossbar in stoppage-time before gifting Belfon an easy take off the rebound.

Connection, second on the league standings with 35 points, will shift their focus to the quest of a fifth Concacaf Champions League qualification this week, when they host CS Moulien (Guadeloupe), Inter Moengotapoe (Suriname), and Atletico San Cristobal (Dominican Republic) in Group One of the opening round of the 2016 Caribbean Club Championship.

Defence Force (33 points) are third on the DPL standings and will face eight-placed Morvant Caledonia United (16 points) from 3:30 today (Sunday) at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, while simultaneously at the Larry Gomes Stadium North East Stars, sixth with 23 points, will welcome fifth-placed San Juan Jabloteh (26 points) in a mid-table clash.

Police FC sits in fourth, one point ahead of Jabloteh, after a late Glenn Sutton goal gave ninth-placed Point Fortin Civic a 2-1 win over the Lawmen at the Mahaica Oval on Saturday.

Sylvester Teesdale fired Civic ahead in the 31st minute and Jameel Perry equalised for Police on 79 minutes, before Sutton grabbed the winner for the home side with five minutes left.

W Connection 0 vs Club Sando 2 (Devon Modeste 53’ penalty, Kevon Woodley 56’), at Manny Ramjohn Stadium;

I heard it have 20 people in attendance for the Morvant Caledonia United v Defence Force game today and half of them is the Defence Force players who didn't make the squad.

Would really like to know what Skeene have in store seeing that government help could be a thing of the past soon.

What is also interesting is, a few days ago they brought out the fixtures for this week, and then a day before the actual games, they changed it and I am assuming they changed it because of W Connection and Central participation in the CFU cup, but what is strange they knew about the CFU months now.

So, these guys really making a mess of the T&T league.

Nathan Lewis brace secures Jabloteh win over troubled N/E Stars.
ttproleague.com.


San Juan Jabloteh beat North East Stars 3-1 on Sunday as the Sangre Grande outfit recorded their seventh straight league game without a win.

Trinidad and Tobago 2006 World Cup member Anthony Wolfe marked his return to North East Stars with a goal-assist, but ex-employers Jabloteh frolicked courtesy a second half Nathan Lewis brace.

The result moved Jabloteh up a spot on the Digicel Pro League 2015-16 standings into fourth with 29 points, six points behind W Connection and 11 points away from leaders Central FC, while the troubled North East Stars, once leaders this season, continue to occupy sixth spot with 23 points.

Defence Force (36 points) also moved up a spot on Sunday, hurdling W Connection for second by a point to keep the pressure on Central FC by trimming the Couva Sharks lead to four points after a late 2-1 win over eight-placed Morvant Caledonia United.

Forwards Richard Roy and Devorn Jorsling scored in the 82nd minute and third minute of stoppage-time, respectively, for Marvin Gordon’s men, before Kareem Joseph pulled back a consolation item for Caledonia in the fourth minute of stoppage-time at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella.

At the Larry Gomes Stadium on Malabar, Keith Jeffrey’s Jabloteh went ahead 1-0 on 24 minutes through Jamaican midfielder Fabien Reid.

North East Stars goalkeeper Shane Mattis slowed the pace on his countryman’s initial attempt, but Reid, who was picked out inside the area, was quick to find his way around the ‘keeper to regain possession before hitting into an open net.

Jabloteh took the one-goal advantage into the break, however seconds after the restart, striker Gorean “Ratty” Highley pulled Ross Russell’s men level 1-1 with a left-footed volley that bounced beyond goalkeeper Shemel Louison and into the net.

That goal arrived when the 32-year-old Wolfe, who recently re-joined to the Sangre Grande club after stints in India with Churchill Brothers and Sporting Goa, headed Jesus Perez’s long pass from the back into the path of Highley.

But Jabloteh fired back almost immediately, putting the score at 2-1, when Lewis struck past Mattis from close-up off a right side cross in the 47th minute.

Jabloteh in an attempt to extend the lead saw defender Aquil Selby head a Keyon Edwards free-kick onto the crossbar in the 57th minute and moments later Mattis had to tip behind another free-kick.

Mattis was also lucky midway in the first half when Stars’ captain Keryn Navarro cleared off the line after the Jamaican misjudged an Edwards’ free-kick which was headed to goal by Garth Thomas.

There was little though that Mattis could do on 75 minutes when Lewis completed his double for the 3-1 score with a superb volley to beat the former Jabloteh ‘keeper off a Sean Bonval cross.

Louison prevented another North East Stars with late saves to deny a Jean-Luc Rochford free-kick five minutes from time and a stoppage-time attempt from Anthony Guppy, who had struck the upright on the hour mark.

Results

North East Stars 1 (Gorean Highley 46’) vs San Juan Jabloteh 3 (Fabien Reid 24’, Nathan Lewis 47’, 75’), at Larry Gomes Stadium;

Morvant Caledonia United 1 (Kareem Joseph 90’+4) vs Defence Force 2 (Richard Roy 82’, Devorn Jorsling 90’+3), at Mannie Ramjohn Stadium.

The constant changing of schedule drives me crazy. Why can't they stick to the damn schedule. The league becomes a long drawn out affair with no one being interested.

A break was scheduled for the CFU. However, Central's group was moved to 9th - 13th March due to the Jamaican General Elections.
The schedule has had to be changed yet again because the Minister of Sport has decided that while he will allow free use of stadiums to Pro League teams, he is not prepared to fund the lights at weekends. Therefore many games have to be played at 3.30 or 4pm now.
On Valentines Sunday Central played at 3.30 at Ato and took $120 at the door. It cost us $1,910 to put on the game (ambulance $660, security $440, dj/announcer $500, ball boys $210, gate person $100)
Last Saturday, Rangers hosted us at Larry Gomes at 3.30 and didn't charge at the gate because it simply wasn't worth making the effort.
Clubs have also been told that they have to pay if they want to train at the stadium fields.
It is very frustrating for all clubs. I know it's a struggle for the league to find grounds, but it certainly doesn't help clubs to generate income.

This is horrible....

What's interesting is Defence Force and Police FC automatically has the advantage being government employees and the regular clubs should remind the MoS about this.

So FS, you CFU games are now on the 9th and 13th?

Army and Police don't receive any subventions and have to depend on their relative donors to supply funds for football. The Police Sports Club funds their football, but they too have had cuts. They recently released all civilian players who received stipends.
But yes they have advantages. When we shared a double header with Police, they had a police vehicle and police staff as ambulance cover and uniformed police as security. However, those policemen just watched the game while people snuck into the ground for free which they were supposed to prevent. So Central paid their costs, while Police lost us money!
We all know that many people don't value the Pro League, but if it's not supported by the people or the government then we won't have performances like last night from Connection. Trinidad teams are the most successful at CFU and teams want to avoid them in the champions league. Our national team will suffer.

Here's a thing -  Jan-Michael Williams received $33,000 last year from the 83,000 subvention (if you divide the annual subvention between the number of players on the squad) He is the most successful Trinidadian goalkeeper currently playing - in fact, you could call him an elite athlete.

Narine just received $35,000 from Minister of Sport to help his bowling action. He's a multi millionaire!

But elite athletes receive up to $250,000 per year from SPORTT. Some of those people will never win a medal or finish in the top 5 at olympics and some of them will and are already earning huge appearance fees.

I don't begrudge olympians their funding, but I do think that our number one sport should be better supported.

If marketed correctly, the "El Classico" games between Central & Connection - if backed up by a game featuring Point or Sando- can bring in $5,000 plus. Still not a lot, but it at least covers the cost of hosting the game. I budgeted for taking $4,500 per double header - $2,250 per team. Thats around 150 adults (some of whom would have pro league season tickets)
We started to place advertising boards at our games. We built the boards and offered free placement once banners were supplied. The idea is to create interest and then charge say $300 per game. Ato let us store the boards there as transport costs made it impractical. It was working until somebody stole 5 banners and smashed up 3 boards. However, the person was identified and has reimbursed the club. We now have a car company looking to spend $5,000 to advertise next season, a travel agent, a hotel and several others interested. This would, at least, generate some income.

By the way, AS, I visit the site often, but stay clear of posting unless I can provide some info!

I appreciate the insights.

The match you referenced originally was the Valentine's Day encounter (who was the opponent? ... not sure which team was the opponent), but if the clasico presents the optimal financial opportunity it is hard to see how financial viability is maintained across the board.

Marcus Joseph brace keeps Central winning.
ttproleague.com.


Marcus Joseph has evidently found his scoring boots since the January departure of Trinidad and Tobago forward Willis Plaza from Central FC to El Salvador Premier Division outfit Alianza FC. The 24-year-old Joseph scored on either side of the break on Tuesday against his former side Point Fortin Civic to help Central FC walk away with full points from their trip to Mahaica Oval with a 3-1 win.

Joseph, who scored in a 7-0 win over Civic on Jan. 15 in Couva, has now scored in six consecutive games for the “Couva Sharks” who are unbeaten in 12 straight games and sit at the Digicel Pro League summit with 43 points and their most recent feat of six consecutive wins.

Joseph put the Dale Saunders coached-Central ahead on 14 minutes from the penalty spot before cushioning the visitors by the 54th minute with his ninth goal for the year—six goals more than his 2015/16 season tally before the Christmas break. Joseph has scored 12 league goals this season.

Central completed their scoring, and fourth win against Civic in all competitions this season, in the third minute of stoppage-time through full-back Kevon Villaroel before Glenn Sutton grabbed the consolation item for the home side two minutes later.

Civic continue to occupy ninth-position, tied on 16 points with seventh-positioned Morvant Caledonia United who are against San Juan Jabloteh from 4pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Wednesday.

Defence Force, four points behind in second on the standings and four points clear of W Connection who are against Police FC from 6pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Wednesday, kept pace with Central after narrowly defeating cellar-positioned St. Ann’s Rangers 2-1 in the first game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Tuesday.

Devorn Jorsling, last season’s league top scorer and the Pro League’s all-time leading scorer, snatched the Defence Force winner in the 75th minute after latching onto perfectly placed feed from midfielder Hashim Arcia before slipping the ball past an advancing St. Ann’s Rangers goalkeeper Stefan Berkeley.

Coach Marvin Gordon’s side had taken the lead on 38 minutes when Ross Russell Jr.’s cross was met by an unmarked Kellon Serrette who directed the ball past Berkeley from close range.

But Rangers, an improved side with the additions of such players as former San Juan Jabloteh, Central FC and North East stars midfielder Johan Peltier and former North East Stars winger Jomoul Francois in the recent transfer window, had nullified the score ten minutes into the second half through utility player Jameel Antoine who found the top far corner of goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke’s with a textbook strike from just inside the area.

Rangers, in search of the go-ahead goal, had a shout for penalty after Kadeem Hutchinson went down to a Curtis Gonzales challenge in the 64th minute but, to the surprise of many, referee Dennis Changiah awarded the winger a yellow card for simulation.

Defence Force too, would later consider themselves unlucky after having two penalty shouts waved away by Changiah.

In the first instance Defence Force substitute forward Richard Roy, who early curled an Arcia cross wide of goal, was upended by goalkeeper Berkeley in the 86th minute. Two minutes later another substitute, Kerry Joseph, took a tumble in the area during a run towards goal when he was tackled by Rangers substitute defender Kareem Baptiste.

In the second game at the Couva venue, Trinidad and Tobago 2006 FIFA World Cup member Anthony Wolfe and overlooked T&T forward Kerry Baptiste both scored their first goals since returning to North East Stars in the January/February transfer window to earn Ross Russell’s side a hard-fought 2-1 win over Club Sando, while snapping a seven-game winless slide by the Sangre Grande club.

The 32-year-old Wolfe, who had stints in India with Churchill Brothers and Sporting Goa in the last two seasons, rounded Sando’s Grenada national team goalkeeper Jason Belfon to fire North East Stars ahead in the 10th-minute after being picked out by midfielder Kerry Daniel.

It was not until ten minutes from time that Sando forward and captain Jesse Downing equalised for the home side. Downing, who failed to make contact to an effort by Kevon Woodley in front of goal moments earlier, redeemed himself from close up after goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel was only able to tame an effort from substitute Rickson Phillip.

But in the 89th-minute the 34-year-old Kerry Baptiste rolled back the clock with the game-winner to the delight of coach Russell and, especially, his latest signings in goalkeeper Samuel, Daniel, Wolfe (A), Baptiste and Ryan Stewart among others.

Goalkeeper Belfon, who had denied Baptiste on three earlier occasions, was unable to keep grip on the former Toyota/TT Pro League Player of the Year’s strike at the bottom corner and the ball entered his net.

Baptiste had a great opportunity to complete a double in stoppage-time but directed his attempt wide off a rebound after substitute Chike Sullivan low strike struck the Sando far upright.

North East Stars remain sixth on the standings, now with 26 points, six clear of seventh-positioned Sando and one point behind fifth-positioned Police FC.

Central edge D/Force to go seven points clear in DPL ahead of CCL qualifiers.
ttproleague.com.


Central FC couldn’t ask for more after Friday’s1-0 win over Defence Force in their Digicel Pro League top-of-the-table clash ahead of next week’s Concacaf Champions League qualifiers in Jamaica.

Marcus Joseph delivered the game’s only goal on 13 minutes in front of a few hundreds of spectators that turned up at the Ato Boldon Stadium to earn the defending DPL champions full points.

Joseph fired past a wall of Defence Force shirts from the edge of the area. His left-footed strike had too much sting for goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke who got his arms to the ball but couldn’t stop it from entering the back of his far netting.

It was the Trinidad and Tobago international forward’s seventh consecutive scoring outing for the “Couva Sharks”, taking his league tally to 13 goals, while his side boasts an 7-game winning streak and undefeated in their last 13 games.

Central, however, took precautionary measure in replacing Joseph – who picked up a knock in the 24th minute – at the break. Central lost their strength in attack but Defence Force, despite a gritty effort to find a way back, failed to find the equalising goal.

The win ensured Central (46 points) stretch their DPL lead seven points clear of second-positioned Defence Force and ten points ahead of third-positioned W Connection, who had to come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with eight-positioned Morvant Caledonia United in the first game of Friday’s double-header at the Couva venue.

It is the sort of “breathing space” Central interim coach Dale Saunders desired before his team jets off for Jamaica on Tuesday to begin defence of the Caribbean Club Championship against Cayman Islands team Scholars International SC on March 11 and hosts Montego Bay United on March 13 in Group 3 at the Montego Bay Sporting Complex.

Only the group winners advances into the semi-final round on April 29 in which W Connection already occupies a spot having topped Group 1 in Trinidad a week ago. The two semi-final winners and the third place winners will occupy the three Caribbean berths at the 2016/17 Concacaf Champions League. The final of the Caribbean Club Championship will be contested on May 1.

Connection, without a number of players including attacking midfielders Jomal Williams and Andre Toussaint and defensive midfielder Briel Thomas who impressed during the Caribbean Club Championship group stage, struggled to get into stride early against Caledonia on Friday.

Guyana duo Kareem Knights and Pernell Schultz handed Caledonia on a 2-0 cushion before the break.

Teenager Knights volleyed past goalkeeper Julani Archibald off an Antonio Joseph cross on 13 minutes for his first ever Caledonia goal.

Schultz later converted from the penalty spot in the 44th minute after his earlier strike crashed off the arm of Connection defensive midfielder Gerard Williams at the edge of the area. Referee Keilon Bacchus pointed to the spot after consulting his assistant and Connection were behind by two goals heading into the break.

However Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s men stormed back in the second half to level the scores 2-2 and could have produced a win, had it not been for the heroics of former Connection goalie Marvin Phillip between the Caledonia uprights.

Phillip had produced two excellent saves, denying Shahdon Winchester and Kurt Frederick early in the second half, but there was little the Trinidad and Tobago international could do when Winchester found the far bottom corner getting beyond defender Leslie Russell.

Winchester turned provider in the 62nd-minute slipping a pass behind Russell inside the area to pick out an oncoming Dimitrie Apai and the Suriname international was clinical to beat a hapless Phillip.

Phillip had the last say, denying the Apai and Winchester further goals in the 68th-minute and stoppage-time, respectively.

Results

Morvant Caledonia United 2 (Kareem Knights 13’, Pernell Schultz 44’ penalty) vs W Connection 2 (Shahdon Winchester 55’, Dimitrie Apai 62'), at Ato Boldon Stadium;

Baptiste nets three as N/E Stars whip Police.
ttproleague.com.


Kerry Baptiste has entered his new lease on life at North East Stars with four goals in two games, with his latest a hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Police FC at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Sunday.

Baptiste, who scored the winning goal in a 2-1 result over Club Sando on Tuesday, led the Sangre Grande outfit to their second consecutive win, after snapping Ross Russell’s men seven-game winless streak.

North East Stars, now with 29 points, moved into fifth position on the Digicel Pro League standings by leapfrogging Police (27 points), who must face third-positioned W Connection in a rescheduled fixture from 8pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Wednesday March 9.

Baptiste, the second highest scorer in the history of the Pro League behind Defence Force’s Devorn Jorsling, was a rarely used forward at defending league champions Central FC—the club he joined at the start of the season—but is already making an impact with his former side North East Stars since joining in the January/February transfer window.

Baptiste had one goal to his name for Central this season, netting the final item of a 4-0 win in stoppage-time against Club Sando in the semi-final round of the Toyota Classic last October. But on Sunday, he brought back memories of 2009—the year he helped Joe Public capture five major titles including the Pro League crown and and FA Trophy while becoming the highest scorer of a season in the Pro League.

Baptiste netted the Stars opening and closing items in the 5-2 win against the "Lawmen".

The 34-year-old overlooked Trinidad and Tobago international put North East Stars ahead on 12 minutes with a trademark finish, placing the ball beyond goalkeeper Adrian Foncette from just inside the area after latching onto a defence-splitting pass from Anthony Wolfe.

Gorean Highley made it 2-0 three minutes before the break after a blunder by Foncette. Foncette, in an attempted clearance after some indecisiveness by his defence, crashed the ball into the body of Highley inside the area and the Stars forward spared no mercy in hitting past the Police goalie after some adjustments.

If that wasn’t enough to spill over the frustrations of coach Richard Hood as Police were guilty of wasting chances, another giveaway by Police midfielder and captain Todd Ryan eight minutes inside the second period offered Highley a look on goal from 24 yards out with Foncette off his line. However Highley struck high in his attempt to lob the Police goalie.

Baptiste was clinical again with his second goal of the game to put North East Stars 3-0 up by hitting past Foncette off substitute Reon Moore’s right side cross in the 70th-minute.

Six minutes later Moore, a former member of the North East Stars youth teams, made it 4-0 when he grabbed his first senior team goal for the Stars by placing the ball into Foncette’s far bottom corner after dribbling off two defenders.   

Stars’ transfer window goalkeeping signing, former T&T youth player Glenroy Samuel, was brilliant with a number of shutouts until the 79th-minute when Police substitute Dylon King pulled a goal back from just in the area.

But Baptiste, following some neat exchanges inside the area, completed his hat-trick with another class finish to make it 5-1.

Police would find another goal though, to end the game 5-2, when Makesi Lewis for his 15th league goal at the top of the scorer’s list this season, hit off the underside of the crossbar to beat Samuel from substitute Jameel Perry’s cross.

Police, however, must improve quickly if they are to get a positive result against W Connection on Wednesday and snap their two-game losing form.

Results

North East Stars 5 (Kerry Baptiste 12’, 70’, 89’, Gorean Highley 43’, Reon Moore 76’) vs Police FC 2 (Dylon King 79’, Makesi Lewis 90’+2)

Jabloteh brush aside Cale’ in lead up to Saturday’s clash with D/Force in Barataria.
ttproleague.com.


San Juan Jabloteh have warmed up for Saturday’s highly anticipated home game against Defence Force with their fourth consecutive win in the Digicel Pro League, by brushing aside Morvant Caledonia United 3-0 in a rescheduled game at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Wednesday.

Fabian Reid, Jamal Gay and Nathan Lewis each scored in the second half to give coach Keith Jeffrey his best result of the season against his team’s cross-town rivals after a 2-1 win on September 27 and 1-0 loss on January 15.

Jabloteh, with 35 points in fourth, will attempt to extend their winning ways when they host second-positioned Defence Force (39 points) on Saturday from 6:30pm at the Barataria Recreation Ground, while eight-positioned Caledonia returns to action on Friday against six-positioned Police FC from 6pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Police were also in action on Wednesday, holding third-positioned W Connection (37 points) to a 0-0 draw in the first game of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Connection will aim for full points on Friday when they host Point Fortin Civic from 8pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium following back-to-back draws.

In the earlier Couva game on Wednesday, forward Kerry Baptiste took his goal tally to six goals, netting in three consecutive games, since returning to North East Stars in the transfer window.

However it was a late Anthony Guppy item that separated North East Stars from the cellar-positioned St. Ann’s Rangers for a 4-3 win.

Rangers had kept themselves in the game with three equalising goals through Kevon Piper (39th minute), Jeromie Williams (63rd minute) and Kadeem Hutchinson (80th minute) until nine minutes from time Guppy, another transfer window signing, grabbed the North East Stars’ winner.

Baptiste netted on either side of the break, twice putting the Sangre Grande club in front with goals in the 33rd and 57th minutes, before midfielder Ryan Stewart also scored a go-ahead goal in the 71st-minute.

In Malabar, Fabian Reid fired Jabloteh ahead thirteen minutes into the second period with a composed finish into the left corner of goalkeeper Marvin Phillip’s netting.

Jabloteh could have gone ahead before the break but Tyrone Charles missed the target with Phillip at his mercy after holding off two challenges when he was played into the area by former Caledonia forward Jamal Gay on 20 minutes.

Ten minutes earlier Phillip matched a 30-yard free-kick by Charles, pushing the midfielder’s powerful attempt overbar.

But Charles redeemed himself by making light work of Caledonia right-back Antonio Joseph before finding Gay, who from the edge of the six-yard area, teed up Jamaican midfielder Reid (F) for opening item.

Moments later Reid (F) missed an excellent opportunity to put Jabloteh two in front when he struck overbar after another former Caledonia player Nathan Lewis had shredded left-back Ordell Flemming before proving a dangerous cross.

Jabloteh finally got the 2-0 cushion on 71 minutes when Gay headed a left side corner-kick by Charles into the far bottom corner of Phillip’s netting for his eight league goal this season.

Phillip was hung out to dry again by his defence in the 81st-minute and Lewis fired in Jabloteh’s final goal for the 3-0 score.

It was from a defence-splitting pass by another former Caledonia player Noel Williams, who entered the game after the break, that Lewis was able to attack the box before blasting past Phillip.

Results

Morvant Caledonia United 0 vs San Juan Jabloteh 3 (Fabian Reid 58’, Jamal Gay 71’, Nathan Lewis 81), at Larry Gomes Stadium;

W Connection 0 vs Police FC 0, at Ato Boldon Stadium;

St. Ann’s Rangers 3 (Kevon Piper 39’, Jeromie Williams 63’, Kadeem Hutchinson 80’) vs North East Stars 4 (Kerry Baptiste 33’, 57’, Ryan Stewart 71’, Anthony Guppy 82’), at Ato Boldon Stadium.

Perry leads Police to victory over Caledonia; wasteful Connection narrowly escapes draw with Civic.
ttproleague.com.


Forward Jameel Perry scored one and set up another within a space of three minutes early into the second half to lead Police FC to a 2-1 win over his former employers Morvant Caledonia United in the first game of Friday night’s Digicel Pro League double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

In the second game, however, Dimitrie Apai’s second strike proved decisive after a number of clear-cut chances were wasted by W Connection who edged Point Fortin Civic 1-0 to avoid slipping to a third consecutive league draw.

The 21-year-old Suriname international forward, unmarked at the back post, volleyed into an exposed Civic net five minutes into the second half off a cross from left full-back Kurt Frederick to earn Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s men the win.

That goal lifted Connection (40 points) into second, edging a point ahead of Defence Force, who face San Juan Jabloteh from 6:30pm at the Barataria Recreation Ground on Saturday.

Defending champions Central FC are at the summit with 40 points and Jabloteh are fourth with 35 points, while Police are one point below fifth-positioned North East Stars (32 points).

Perry, after adjusting his scope just inside the area, fired Police ahead 1-0 in the 48th-minute when he struck low and powerfully to beat Caledonia goalkeeper Marvin Phillip following a lifted pass by Kareem Freitas.

Police then took a 2-0 cushion in the 51st-minute after Perry squared a pass across the area and Makesi Lewis clinically found the far bottom corner for his season 17th league goal beyond Phillip, who he joins on the Trinidad and Tobago national team for a friendly international away to Grenada on March 19.

Caledonia had an excellent opportunity to reduce the deficit on the hour mark but defender Robert Primus, who was used as an experimental forward, spilled high overbar from the edge of the six-yard area after lunging to meet a Pernell Schultz cross.

The 25-year-old T&T international Primus, who was previously based in Kazakhstan and is coming off a lengthy layoff due to a knee injury, was involved in two excellent go-ahead opportunities which were wasted in the first half.

Caledonia finally pulled back a goal through midfielder Jameel Neptune in the first of three minutes stoppage-time, with a blast from the centre of the area.

Police goalkeeper Adrian Foncette, who made excellent saves to deny Caledonia substitute Marcus Ambrose and Otev Lawrence in the 64th and 88th minutes, respectively, was unable to preserve his clean sheet due to the pace of Neptune’s strike.

Police, however, maintained their one hundred percent win record this season against the eight-placed Caledonia, the side they defeated 2-1 on Oct. 27 and 5-0 on Jan. 19.

Connection, who defeated Civic 3-1 on Oct. 17 en route to lifting this season’s First Citizens Cup and 7-1 in the league on Jan. 19, avoided another 0-0 result they had against the Point Fortin side on Oct. 27 in the league, thanks to Apai’s goal.

But coach Charles-Fevrier was left with more concerns than comfort after his side’s display against the ninth-placed Civic. His side failed to make light work of Civic by squandering a handful of point-blank scoring chances.

Apai struck wide in the 24th minute with the goalkeeper Goodman at his mercy after St. Lucia international Frederick swung a perfect cross behind the Civic defence.

Then a minute from the half 20-year-old Grenada forward Jamal Charles directed an effort wide of the target, with an open net at his disposal after a hard worked Alvin Jones cross had left ‘keeper Goodman beaten out of his goal.

Four minutes after redeeming himself with the eventual game-winning strike, Apai was denied a second by Goodman.

But from the resulting corner kick play, Apai casually lifted the ball off his thigh at the Civic goal mouth, making for a comfortable gather by the goalkeeper.

Goodman, who denied Connection teenaged midfielder Isaiah Hudson his first top flight goal in the 22nd-minute, was excellent again just before the hour mark when he dived low to his right to push wide a powerful 25-yard free-kick from Alvin Jones.

Connection attacks continued but so did their poor finishing, even with the arrival of second half substitutes Jomal Williams and Shahdon Winchester, who are both part of the T&T squad to face Grenada.

Williams (J) fired wide of an empty goal in the 76th-minute after being picked out by an Apai cross, and in stoppage-time Winchester struck inches wide of the upright with Goodman at his mercy.

Police snap Central's remarkable run; Gorean 'Ratty' Highley scores winning brace as N/E Stars stun Connection.
ttproleague.com.


Police FC on Friday night became only the third team this season, after San Juan Jabloteh and North East Stars, to defeat defending Digicel League champions Central FC in league.

The “Lawmen” celebrated a 1-0 result for their first victory against Central in four attempts this season in all competitions and it came without scoring the goal.

Dreadfully it was an own goal eight minutes before the break that snapped the “Couva Sharks”’ 15-game undefeated streak in all competitions achieved under the promotion of assistant coach Dale Saunders to head coach after sacking Ross Russell in mid-December.

An errant clearance in desperation by Central right-back Kaydion Gabriel and out-of-sorts second choice goalkeeper Akel Clarke misjudging the high ball, allowed it to fall into his goal despite his last ditch effort to pull off a save.

Central, who entered the game on a 9-game winning run in all competitions, did have their chances but Police goalkeeper Adrian Foncette – denying Darren Mitchell, Sean De Silva and substitute Kadeem Corbin – did everything possible, even keeping out what would have turned out a second half own goal against his side off the boot of defender Jibri Mc David at his bottom corner following a dangerous cross by Jason Marcano.

But credit to Police, coach Richard Hood’s players were resolute even after Central had thrown in fresh firepower up front in the second half with Marcus Joseph replacing speedy winger Rundell Winchester, who made his first appearance for the “Couva Sharks” since returning following his 2015 loan stint with United States club Portland Timbers 2, and Corbin and Nicholas Dillon replacing De Silva and Leston Paul, respectively.

Police were excellent on the counterattacks but failed to capitalise beyond the final pass. The “Lawmen” did manage an excellent effort through Makesi Lewis, who turned neatly at the end of the area, but his strike with five minutes regular-time left was matched by Clarke, who stood in Central goal in place of injury-listed Jan-Michael Williams (shoulder). The T&T international ‘keeper suffered the injury on March 13 while representing Central against hosts Montego Bay United in Jamaica in their final Group 3 game of the 2016 Caribbean Club Championship, in which the “Couva Sharks” are the defending champions.

Central (46 points) however, didn't lose their six-point lead at the top of the DPL 2015/16 standings after second placed W Connection (40 points) were stunned 3-1 by North East Stars in a come-from-behind victory in the second game of the Couva double-header.

Shahdon Winchester headed Connection in front 1-0, beating Stars’ goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel on 13 minutes off a Neil Bemjamin Jr cross.

But the visitors equalised midway through the half from a Ryan Stewart free-kick before a second half brace from substitute Gorean "Ratty" Highley gave the Ross Russell coached-North East Stars their fifth consecutive league win.

Stewart levelled the score 1-1 in the 26th minute when he brilliantly swung a free-kick around the wall and the ball bounced beyond goalkeeper Terrence Lewis and into the far netting after Anthony Guppy was brought down just outside the box by 17-year-old W Connection senior team debutant Isaiah Garcia who is the cousin of 18-year-old Trinidad and Tobago latest sensation Levi Garcia.

Lewis was excellent though, later in the game, when he got glove to a superb Kerry Baptiste volley to direct it off the upright, denying the Stars’ forward his ninth goal in five games since returning to North East Stars from Central in the January/February transfer window.

Connection too were denied by the frame after Jomal Williams had slipped beyond the Stars defence and rounded goalkeeper Samuel, only to see his attempt cannon off the upright.

North East Stars though, grabbed a 2-1 lead in the 70th minute when former player Highley – just six minutes onto the pitch – slapped the right-footed strike beyond a fully stretched Lewis after picking up a pass from Guppy.

Highley then celebrated his double in the 81st minute off Guppy’s second assist by hitting past Lewis off the outside of his favoured left boot to snap Connection’s six-game undefeated run in all competitions.

North East Stars maintains fifth position with 35 points—one point ahead of sixth positioned Police FC and three points behind fourth positioned San Juan Jabloteh who will attempt their sixth straight league win when they welcome cellar-placed St. Ann’s Rangers from 6:30pm at the Barataria Recreation Ground today (Saturday April 2).

Also on today, Club Sando and Morvant Caledonia United will journey to the Guayaguayare Recreation Ground in Guayaguayare to face each other from 4pm, and from 6pm Point Fortin Civic will host third positioned Defence Force at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin.

D/Force edge Civic to move within four points of Central.
ttproleague.com.


Akeem Roach scored with a minute of regulation-time left to give Defence Force a 2-1 win over home side Point Fortin Civic on Saturday at the Mahaica Oval.

The win, combined with Friday night's slips by Digicel Pro League frontrunners Central and W Connection who fell 1-0 and 3-1 against Police FC and North East Stars, respectively, in Couva, puts Defence Force (42 points) up a spot into second.

Defending champions Central, with a game in hand, are atop the standings with 46 points while Connection (40 points) slipped a spot into third.

Forward Kellon Serrette had given Defence Force a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute but Civic winger Akeem Redhead put the home side level 1-1 on 56 minutes.

It was not until the 89th minute that Roach, with his first Defence Force goal this season since returning in the January/February transfer window following a stint with Morvant Caledonia United, handed coach Marvin Gordon’s side the winner as Civic, occupying ninth with 16 points, conceded a fourth straight loss.


Cellar positioned St. Ann’s Rangers meanwhile picked up their 11th point of the 2015/16 campaign on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against home side San Juan Jabloteh.

Nathan Lewis scored in the 88th minute to pull Jabloteh level and avoid defeat at the Barataria Recreation Ground, but not enough to give the “San Juan Kings” a sixth straight win.

Rangers had led from the 38th minute thanks to a Trevin Latapy strike, but the visitors failed to stop the in-form Lewis with two minutes left and the attacker snatched his 11th goal of the season while remaining the only Jabloteh player to score on the Barataria this season. Lewis has four goals in the three games in Barataria.

Jabloteh (39 points) remain fourth, one point behind Connection while North East Stars (35 points and Police (34 points) occupy fifth and sixth positions, respectively.

Ten points away and occupying seventh position are Club Sando, who were held to a 2-2 draw with Morvant Caledonia United at the Guayaguayare Recreation Ground.

Sando had led 2-0 at the break following a quick double by Devon Modeste netting in the 24th and 27th minutes against his ex-employers. But Caledonia rallied to a 2-2 draw through a goal each from Pernell Schultz and Kareem Joseph in the 47th and 83rd minutes, respectively.

Results

Club Sando 2 (Devon Modeste 24', 27') vs Morvant Caledonia United 2 (Pernell Schultz 47', Kareem Joseph 83'), at Guayaguayare Recreation Ground;

Point Fortin Civic 1 (Akeem Redhead 56') vs Defence Force 2 (Kellon Serrette 28', Akeem Roach 89'), at Mahaica Oval;

Central and W Connection in back-to-back upcoming Couva Clásicos
ttproleague.com


Central FC coach Dale Saunders says Tuesday's Digicel Pro League Clásico against rivals W Connection can determine whether or not the “Couva Sharks” go on to retain the league crown.

The defending league champions, Central (46 points), with a game in hand, are four points ahead of second positioned Defence Force (42 points) on the 2015/16 DPL standings while in third position are Connection (40 points) with five regular league games left this season.

Connection, last season’s DPL runners up, will attempt to slice the “Couva Sharks”’ lead while improving their chance at the league crown this season when both sides meet from 8pm on Tuesday April 12 at the Ato Boldon Stadium, in what will also serve a preview of Friday’s Lucozade Sport Goal Shield (LSGS) semi-final round clash between the Couva rivals.

Central are defending LSGS champions having won the title the last time it was contested in 2014, while Connection are two-time (2009 & 2013) former champions.

“[Tuesday’s game is a] top-of-the-table league clash and we have to try and motivate our players,” said Saunders whose side needed a penalty shootout to dispatch St. Ann’s Rangers in the quarter-final round of the LSGS following a 1-1 draw last Friday.

Saunders said his players, who were, along with Connection, competing since the 2015/16 Concacaf Champions League group stage in August are now showing “some tired legs”. However he is confident in his methods and that of his coaching staff to keep the “Sharks” motivated for the two upcoming Couva Clásicos as well as the rest of the season.

“I think the game (against W Connection) will decide if we go on to win the title. It will be a very good game. Tactically, we will go back to the drawing board and try for full points against Connection,” explained Saunders who served as assistant coach to Zoran Vranes then Terry Fenwick last season, and in the same role under Ross Russell for five months this season before being promoted at the helm in mid-December after the club parted ways with Russell, a two-time league winning coach with Defence Force.

Tuesday’s Clásico is Saunders’ second in charge since holding Connection to a 1-1 draw in the DPL on January 24.

W Connection head coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier, also looking ahead to final round of the 2016 Caribbean Club Championship in which Central are defending champions, said he is happy to face the “Couva Sharks” twice in four days.

“It’s the sort of competition we need to prepare for the Caribbean Club Championship final round which Central are also a part of. So [playing against each other twice is] useful preparations for both teams,” said Fevrier who led the “Savonetta Boys” to this season’s First Citizens Cup and Toyota Classic titles and are into the LSGS semi-final round with a 4-1 win over former champions North East Stars last Friday.

“We want to win both games,” added the Connection coach. “The first game (on Tuesday) is very important because it’s a situation where we are playing catch up in the league six points away from Central. We are confident in our ability and on any day we can defeat any team in the league. It’s just a matter of maintaining consistency and focus now. We don’t have a choice and I believe our players will do what is necessary, not just for the two upcoming games against Central, but for the rest of the season.”

Central and W Connection will later shift their attention the final round of the 2016 Caribbean Club Championship in Haiti, seeking consecutive berths at the Concacaf Champions League.

Central, who defeated W Connection in the Caribbean final last season, will, for a second consecutive time, meet Haiti’s Don Bosco FC in the semi-final round on April 29, while multiple-time Caribbean champions W Connection must tackle Jamaica’s Arnett Gardens after all four semi-finalist teams topped their respective groups.

The 2016 final and third place play-off will be contested on May 01. The two semi-final round winners and third place winners will secure the three Caribbean berths at the 2016/17 Concacaf Champions League.

Last season Central, coached then by former England and Tottenham defender Terry Fenwick, needed penalties to defeat Don Bosco 3-1 following a goalless semi-final draw before edging 9-man W Connection in the final to lift the Caribbean crown.

Hector scores late rocket goal on Couva Clásico debut as Connection edge Central
ttproleague.com


W Connection win but Central, Police and Caledonia all lose ahead of Friday's Lucozade Sport Goal Shield semi-finals

Just when the hundreds that turned out at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Tuesday night thought the latest Couva Clásico would end in a goalless stalemate, Hughtun Hector delivered an 89th-minute rocket to snatch a 1-0 W Connection win over rivals Central FC.

The W Connection captain’s goal could also provide the confidence booster for the “Savonetta Boys” who must again meet Central on Friday from 8pm at the same Couva venue in the second semi-final round of the 2016 Lucozade Sport Goal Shield.

Hector, on his Couva Clásico debut, since only returning to the W Connection in the January/February transfer window following a five-year stint in Vietnam top flight V-League, unleashed a right-footed blast from 25 yards out to find the back of the Central net, leaving goalkeeper Akel Clarke and his defence beaten after the “Couva Sharks” failed to properly rid the ball from a corner play.

The win saw Connection (43 points) hurdle Defence Force (42 points) – who were beaten 3-1 by Club Sando in the earlier game of the Couva double-header – to move into second position on the Digicel Pro League 2015/16 standings and close to gap to three points behind defending champions and leaders Central FC (46 points) who have a game in hand with four regular games left.

“Scoring the Clásico winner is a great feeling for me,” said Hector after the final whistle and his first league goal back in Connection strip. “I’m happy to get the goal but this was all about the team. We worked hard in preparation for this game. They (Central) were ahead of us by 6 points with a game in hand and we knew we had to come out and work hard for it. I’m just happy to get the goal. Tonight (Tuesday) was very important to us and we kept our heads in the game and got the result.”

The 31-year-old Trinidad and Tobago international, Hector, who represented Song Lam Nghe An and Hanoi T&T during his stint in the V-League, added, “I’ve witnessed some of the Clásicos [between W Connection and Central] in the past whenever I was home on break from the Vietnam league and the games were big derbies and experiencing it for the first time on the field, I have to say it lived up to expectations.”

The contest was tight with end to end action but offered little clear cut chances between the Couva rivals in the top-of-the-table clash.

Connection left-back Jelani Peters got closest to scoring long before Hector’s item when he rattled the upright in the 22nd minute and much earlier midfielder Andre Toussaint fired just overbar in the second minute of play.

But it was Central who wasted a glorious opportunity in the 4th minute when former US-based forward Rundell Winchester drilled his attempt inches wide of goalkeeper Julani Archibald’s far bottom corner after a giveaway in the middle by Connection.

Archibald who made a couple later stops and a brilliant tip overbar to deny a headed Winchester (R) attempt two minutes inside the second period, was later stretchered off with 20 minutes left. The St. Kitts and Nevis national team goalkeeper suffered a concussion after his head struck the ground in contest for a ball and was rushed to hospital.

There was little work though for his replacement Terrence Lewis, although Central, who managed a 22-yard strike from Central forward Jason Marcano inches wide of the far top corner, threw everything at Connection.

“It was a tight game but in the end we had the edge and deserved to win it,” said W Connection coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier. “It was a cagey contest with both teams very cautious. We really wanted to win this game to try and set them back [in the league] and see what will happen in the future.

“Central are a good team and games between us and them are always never easy. They are games that could go either way but tonight I felt we did that little extra to come out on top. We are hoping that on Friday we can improve our performance because although we won tonight (Tuesday), I still think we could have played better.”

W Connection stood the only side of the four Lucozade Sport Goal Shield semi-final teams to win ahead of Friday's knockout games.

Police FC and Morvant Caledonia United, who are to contest each other in the first LSGS semi-final from 6pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Friday, both suffered league defeats on Tuesday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Caledonia were edged 1-0 by cellar positioned St. Ann's Rangers through a 2nd minute penalty strike from Trevin Latapy which gave Angus Eve-coached side their third league win of the season but remains at the bottom with 14 points.

However, credit to Eve, who took charge of the St. Ann’s club this season, and his charges, it’s an improvement from last season bottom-of-the-table finish with just one win and five points from 24 games.

And in the second game of the Port-of-Spain double-header, San Juan Jabloteh struck a late double to overcome a one-goal deficit to beat Police 3-2 and join Defence Force on 42 points.

Jabloteh held the lead after just 6 minutes thanks to an Akeem Benjamin strike but Police struck twice in the first half with this season’s leading scorer Makesi Lewis notching his 18th league goal in the 19th minute and Dylon King netting in the 33rd minute to give the “Lawmen” a 2-1 lead at the break.

However Brent Sam found the back of the net in the 85th minute to level Jabloteh before Nathan Lewis grabbed the game-winner on 90 minutes—another vital goal from the attacker for his 12th league for the “San Juan Kings” this season.

Down at the Larry Gomes Stadium, North East Stars rebounded from their 4-1 loss to Connection in the LSGS quarter-finals last Friday by whipping Point Fortin Civic 3-0.

Forward Kerry Baptiste scored a first half brace, netting in the 6th and 25th minutes, to take his incredible tally to 9 goals from six games in all competitions since returning to the Stars in the transfer window.

Midfielder Jean-Luc Rochford sealed the comfortable 3-0 win in the 85th minute as coach Ross Russell celebrated his fifth straight league win.

Defence Force however were unable to rebound from Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Morvant Caledonia United in the quarter-final round of the LSGS despite taking the lead against Sando on Tuesday.

Forward Kellon Serrette, one of only four unchanged players from Saturday’s starting line-up for coach Marvin Gordon, gave Defence Force the lead on 24 minutes.

But Sando responded with a goal each from Devon Modeste, Jesse Downing and Akeem Humphrey to secure a 3-1 comeback win.

Modeste equalised on the half hour mark and Downing gave coach Anthony Streete’s men the lead two minutes into the second half before Humphrey completed the scoring in the 72nd minute.

Leston Paul confident Central FC can rebound; ‘Couva Sharks’ hunt win at Caledonia
ttproleague.com


Central FC are confident of snapping a two-game losing slide in the Digicel Pro League while improving their chances at retaining the league crown when the “Couva Sharks” visit Morvant Caledonia United from 7pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Tuesday.

The “Couva Sharks”, whose coaching staff includes coach Dale Saunders and former England-based professionals Brent Sancho and Stern John as assistant coaches, had boasted a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions, but have stumbled in recent times with losses against Police FC (1-0) and W Connection (1-0) in the league and last Friday’s 4-2 loss against the “Savonetta Boys” in the semi-final round of the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield, which Central are holders.

Central, however, continues to lead the 2015/16 league standings by three points with one more game than, in descending order, title contenders W Connection, Defence Force and San Juan Jabloteh, who have four league games left.

“We haven’t won anything yet [this season], but we are still focused on the bigger prizes, which are to win the league and qualify for next season’s Concacaf Champions League,” said Central midfielder and captain Leston Paul whose side will join W Connection in Haiti at the end of April in the final round of the Caribbean Club Championship, which serves as the Caribbean qualifying tournament to the Concacaf Champions League.

“We (Central) haven’t lost any confidence because of the recent losses,” added the former Trinidad and Tobago Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup captain. “It’s minor mistakes that cost us. It’s not like teams outplayed us. We now have to focus more and not make those same mistakes.

“The plan is to win the next game [against Caledonia] and take it one game at a time. It’s a long season and of course there would be a dip. I doubt anyone expected us to stay unbeaten for the rest of the season. The aim now is to bounce back.”

Caledonia were on the wrong end of 2-1, 4-0 and 2-1 results against Central, in all competitions this season, but “Eastern Stallions” have shown they are a different side by recently climbing out of the qualifying round and all the way to next Sunday’s Lucozade Sport Goal final against W Connection.

Connection, three points behind Central on the league table and one point ahead of Defence Force and San Juan Jabloteh, will host the “San Juan Kings” from 8pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Tuesday following a 6pm kick-off between Club Sando and Police.

Defence Force will tackle North East Stars from 9pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium following the Caledonia versus Central clash.

And on Wednesday St. Ann’s Rangers and Point Fortin Civic will meet in a bottom-of-the-table clash from 4pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

Central go four points clear in league; Jabloteh climb second
ttproleague.com


Central FC renewed their bid to retain the Digicel Pro League crown with a 3-0 win over 10-man Morvant Caledonia United on Tuesday night to go four points clear at the top after challengers W Connection were edged 1-0 by San Juan Jabloteh.

Jabloteh, chasing a top-two finish this season to secure a Concacaf Champions League qualifying spot, can now eye the league crown from the view in second position with 45 points thanks to an 86th-minute Tyrone Charles goal against the “Savonetta Boys” at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

But it will be a hard climb for coach Keith Jeffrey's “San Juan Kings” with three games left in the title race and Central on 49 points with a game in hand, not forgetting Connection and Defence Force are still within striking distance for a top-two finish with 43 and 42 points in third and fourth, respectively.

Defence Force, like Connection, also suffered a 1-0 loss to slip a spot as fifth-positioned North East Stars (41 points) celebrated their sixth straight league win under coach Ross Russell thanks to a first half strike from in-form forward Kerry Baptiste in the first game of a double-header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Baptiste beat goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke from close up with a half volley, after the Army defence failed to clear on a free-kick sent into the area, for his eight league goal from six games since returning to the Stars in the January/February transfer window.

Defence Force dominated the second half but former target, goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel, stood unbeatable between the sticks for the Stars.

Samuel, another transfer window signing by North East Stars, was magnificent; the former Trinidad and Tobago Youth World Cup goalie's performance included twice denying Russell's son Russell Russell Jr. and Jerwyn Balthazar to preserve his side slim lead all the way to the end.


In the second game of the Port-of-Spain double-header, Central entered on a two-game league losing spell – which ended a 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions – as well as last Friday's disappointing semi-final round loss to Connection in the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield, and were determined to ditch their recent form.

But it wasn't until Caledonia, Sunday's finalist against Connection in the title game of the 2016 Lucozade Sport Goal Shield, were reduced to 10 men early in the second half, that the “Couva Sharks” proved superior to their opponents.

Marcus Joseph, Darren Mitchell and substitute Nicholas Dillon were all on target in the second half to return Central to winning ways.


Caledonia defender Ranaldo Bailey saw red two minutes into the second half following his second yellow card of the game for a foul on Central forward Marcus Joseph near the side line.

Joseph later put Central in front 1-0 with his 14th league goal this season when he beat goalkeeper Phillip on 66 minutes after a couple exchanges with Jason Marcano to shred the Caledonia defence apart.

Phillip, who earlier produced three excellent saves to deny Central forward Ricardo John, was beaten a second time when Darren Mitchell blasted into his far netting for the 2-0 "Couva Sharks" lead in the 80th minute.


Eight minutes earlier John, who headed wide on the “Sharks”’ best first half chance in the 20th minute off a Kevon Villaroel cross, spilled overbar off his thigh at the goalmouth before being replaced by Kadeem Corbin.

However it was an earlier substitute Nicholas Dillon who grabbed Central's third item to complete the 3-0 win.

Dillon headed powerfully past Phillip after Corbin headed on a Villaroel cross.

Also on Tuesday, sixth-positioned Police FC defeated Club Sando 5-3 in the first game at the Couva double-header.

Police forward Makesi Lewis took his tally at the top of the league scorers list this season to 20 goals, completing a double with a go-head goal on 58 minutes before Dylon King completed the “Lawmen” victory in the 90th minute.

Sando had equalised on three occasions, prior, with forward Devon Modeste netting twice and Shaquille Holder once in a see-saw contest that also had Police forwards Kareem Freitas and Keon Wilson on the scoresheet.

Action continues today (Wednesday) with St. Ann's Rangers against Point Fortin Civic in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Larry Gomes Stadium from 4pm.

Civic snaps losing streak; Central can go seven points clear with win against Sando.
ttproleague.com.


Jamille Boatswain came off the bench to score twice in the second half to help Civic hold off St. Ann’s Rangers 4-2 in a bottom-of-the-table Digicel Pro League clash at the Larry Gomes Stadium on Wednesday as the Point Fortin club snapped a six-game losing streak in all competitions.

The result put Civic up a spot with 19 points, hurdling Morvant Caledonia United – Sunday’s opponents against W Connection in the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield 2016 final – for eight position, while Rangers remain at the bottom of the 10-team DPL standings with 14 points.

On the opposite end of the ladder, defending champions Central FC are four points clear at the summit with a chance to open a seven-point gap when the “Couva Sharks” tackle seventh-positioned Club Sando from 7pm on Friday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in a rescheduled Round Three game, after which there are three games left in the in the title race.

Civic took the lead three minutes before the break through mid-season forward signing Juma Clarence and following second half goals by midfielder Akeem Redhead and forward Boatswain, the southerners were three goals up 15 minutes to the end.

Rangers, who were previously unbeaten against Civic this season – 2-1 and 1-1, stormed back with a goal each from substitutes Johan Peltier and Anselm “Worm” Jackson to reduce the deficit to one goal.

But Boatswain ended Rangers fight on the 90th minute, completing his double and the Civic win with his seventh league goal this season.

Clarence, the 27-year-old former Trinidad and Tobago Youth World Cup player, fired past Rangers goalkeeper Christopher Biggette from just inside the area in the 42nd minute, giving Civic the physiological advantage into the break.

Rangers’ coach Angus Eve responded at the restart with the introduction of Peltier and Jackson, and within the first minute on, the talented pair forced Civic goalkeeper Miles Goodman into two saves.

Goodman was forced into action again in the 66th minute when he put behind an attempt from Jackson, and from the resulting corner Peltier headed overbar.

Civic coach Leroy De Leon, aware of the danger, counterattacked by introducing Boatswain, who less than a minute onto the pitch forced Biggette into a save.

Then from the resulting corner swung in by Shackiel Henry, winger Redhead doubled the visitors lead 2-0 on 72 minutes.

Boatswain then fired in his first of the afternoon for a 3-0 Civic cushion in the 75th minute by capitalising on a rebound after Biggette was tested from distance by Henry.

But Rangers fired back twice in a space of twelve minutes to reduce the deficit 2-3 after Peltier bundled a Keron Cornwall cross into the back of the net in the 77th minute and Jackson pounced on a rebound to score after Goodman had dived to his left to keep out a Cornwall attempt in the 88th minute.

And had Jameel Antoine not missed the far upper corner in the 82nd minute following a feed from Jackson in the area, Rangers could have been level.

However it was all over for the St. Ann’s club in the final minute of regulation time when Boatswain, picked out by substitute Tigana Sparks, hammered his second beyond Biggette to end the game 4-2.

Marcano hits hat-trick against Sando as 'Couva Sharks' sink teeth into Digicel Pro League crown.
ttproleague.com.


Marcano! Marcano! Marcano! Central FC can dance to their fundraising boat party, “Bitten”, on Saturday night aboard the Habour Master after stretching a seven-point lead at the top of the Digicel Pro League to move within one win from retaining the crown.

Jason Marcano scored three times for the defending champions before substitute Kadeem Corbin completed a 4-1 rout over 10-man Club Sando in their rescheduled Round Three fixture on Friday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium to take their 2015/16 points tally to 52 points with three games left in the title race.

San Juan Jabloteh, who must face Central when the league resumes in May, are second with 45 points and currently stands with the best mathematical chance at hurdling the “Couva Sharks” for top spot. Central will complete their games against North East Stars and St. Ann’s Rangers.

W Connection are third with 43 points, followed by Defence Force (42 points) and North East Stars (41 points).

Central coach Dale Saunders made no changes to his starting line-up that defeated Morvant Caledonia United 3-0 on Tuesday, to return to winning ways after a two-game losing spell in the league, and it paid off.

Marcano scored his first in the 35th minute to hand Central a 1-0 lead which the “Sharks” held to the break.

Marcano, who had gotten close twice earlier and had an effort kept out by Kelvin Henry, beat the Sando goalie on the rebound after Henry had blocked out an attempt from Ricardo John.

Henry was well-positioned a minute before the break to keep out a Sean De Silva attempt following a feed from John. And well into the second half the Sando shot-stopper was brilliant again, putting behind a strike from above the box by Corbin.

But from the resulting corner kick, Marcano headed past Henry at the back post to give Central a 2-0 cushion in the 64th minute after De Silva's cross had beaten a handful of players.

Sando were halfway back four minutes later when midfielder Akeem Humphrey thumped a low strike to beat goalkeeper Akel Clarke from the top of the area – slicing the deficit 1-2.

However Marcano completed his hat-trick in the 79th minute with his 12th league goal this season to put his side 3-1 ahead.

Marcano pounced on a back pass by Sando defender Kevon Neaves and showed excellent fortitude, after being hacked down outside the box by Henry, to spring to life again and enter the area with the ball before firing into an open net.

Sando’s troubles worsened a minute later when Grenada national team defender Shannon Phillip saw red for a dangerous tackle on Central substitute forward Nicholas Dillon.

The night, however, was not over for Sando and their goalkeeper Henry who made a stoppage-time save to deny De Silva after Dillion had knocked down a Marcano cross to the onrushing midfielder.

Central finally found their fourth goal in the second minute of stoppage-time for the 4-1 finish when Corbin slid in to put a Dillon strike over the line after the latter had rounded goalkeeper Henry.

Central will next focus on their Caribbean crown defence, when they travel to Haiti next week for the final round of the Caribbean Club Championship 2016 along with last season's runners-up W Connection.

Connection will take on Jamaica's Arnett Gardens and Central are against host club Don Bosco FC in the semi-final round on Friday April 29 at the Stade Sylvio Cato, with both winners securing Concacaf Champions League spots for the 2016/17 season.

The Caribbean final, and third place play-off which will determine the third and final Caribbean spot at the Concacaf Champions League, will be contested on Sunday May 1.

Central are hosting Saturday's (tonight) "Bitten" boat party as part of their fundraising efforts to travel to Haiti next week. Boarding for the Harbour Master begins at 11pm and returns at 3am. Persons interested in tickets – which cost $200 – are asked to contact the club’s Facebook page Central FC Fan Club.

W Connection, meanwhile, are after their third major domestic title this season – after the First Citizens Cup and Toyota Classic – when they take on Caledonia in the final of the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield 2016 from 6pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Sunday April 24.

^^ Smh! This game was at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in POS, so is it a home game for which team? Again Pro League teams need to get engaged in their local communities so they can develop a hardcore fanbase instead of this wishful thinking that playing games at the National Stadium or popular venues will bring support. This has been a failed strategy for years! 

Once you reach out into your local communities and develop your hardcore fan base then fans will come out at your local community football park or football stadium (if its located in the town you representing) and then this home vs away fixtures will start making sense.

The Pro League is the one that decides where games are played based on availability of fields. Rightly or wrongly (mostly wrongly) for years that home and away aspect is just a system used to control who organizes the expenses of hosting a match. Nothing else really.

Teams would love community fields but little to none are up to standard or are simply unavailable. They are controlled by the regional corps and I imagine in some cases its a bureaucratic merry go round. Praise be at least Jabloteh got permission and access to Barataria.

Title: Kerry Baptiste double lifts North East Stars to seventh straight league win
Post by: Tallman on May 04, 2016, 11:08:42 AM
Kerry Baptiste double lifts North East Stars to seventh straight league win; Defence Force move into second
ttproleague.com


Overlooked Trinidad and Tobago forward Kerry Baptiste continued his brilliant scoring form with a double to lead North East Stars to a seventh consecutive Digicel Pro League win by defeating Morvant Caledonia United 3-1 on Tuesday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

The 34-year-old Baptiste scored on either side of the break – his second coming from the penalty spot – to put his league scoring this season to 11 goals from seven games in Stars colours and near a return to the top of the Pro League all-time scoring chart.

Perhaps alerted by the danger, 32-year-old Devorn Jorsling who currently leads the all-time scoring chart after jumping Baptiste a year ago, scored the decisive goal – his first league goal in two months – in Defence Force's 3-2 win over Police FC in the second game of the Port-of-Spain double-header to put his all-time tally at 144 goals.

But with Baptiste (142) just two goals behind and on an incredible run with two league games left, the rivalry between two of the league’s all-time top scorers has been renewed.

Defence Force (45 points) jumped two spots up the DPL standings into second behind leaders Central FC (52 points), but only ahead of San Juan Jabloteh (45 points), who have a game in hand, by goal-difference and one point ahead of North East Stars (44 points), who jumped a spot into fourth.

North East Stars, however, leads the DPL third round with maximum 21 points from 7 games and could be on their way to securing their maiden Kevon Carter (Round Three) trophy under coach Ross Russell.

Baptiste fired North East Stars in front, 1-0, after 26 minutes, hitting past Caledonia goalkeeper Marvin Phillip from a rebound after the T&T national senior team shot-stopper had blocked out a blast from Anthony Guppy.

Baptiste, who went close early in both halves, made it 2-0 in the 58th-minute by beating Phillip from the penalty spot after Guppy was brought down in the area by defender Leslie Russell.

The former Pro League/Toyota Player of the Year was later denied his hat-trick by the crossbar in the 63rd minute after lifting an effort over Phillip, but boasts scoring in six of his seven league appearances for the Sangre Grande club since his return in the January/February transfer window from Central.

Caledonia, finding it difficult against the movement of North East Stars, turned to the introduction of new signing and former Stars’ forward Jomoul Francois – now at his third club this season after a brief stint with St. Ann’s Rangers – at the start of the second period and regulars Akim Armstrong and Robert Primus later on.

But it was Stars’ substitute Chike Sullivan who replaced Baptiste with ten minutes left that celebrated scoring after just three minutes on the pitch. The former T&T youth World Cup midfielder made it 3-0 in favour of Russell’s men with a tap in after scramble and failure to clear by the Caledonia defence.

The ninth-positioned Caledonia did eventually find a consolation item when substitute Akim Armstrong’s header in the 90th minute clipped the underside of the crossbar before bouncing inside goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel’s goal for a 3-1 finish.

In the second game at the Port-of-Spain venue, Police failed to make the best of a first half one-goal lead in a feisty battle-of-the-forces which could have ended in a red card sending off of the Police defender Jibri Mc David.

David had elbowed Hashim Arcia near assistant referee Caleb Wales but, infuriating the Defence Force bench, referee Marlon Perouse only flashed the yellow card to the defender.

Clevon Mc Fee had given Police a 1-0 first half lead with a 13th-minute left-footed strike into goalkeeper Sheldon Clarke’s far netting after latching onto a pass in the area from Makesi Lewis.

The goalscorer was denied a second three minutes later when Clarke matched his curling strike, directed at the far upper corner, with a one-handed save.

Police however allowed their marginal lead to slip a minute-and-a-half inside the second half when a deflected left-footed crack Hashim Arcia gave goalkeeper Kern Caesar little chance, putting the score at 1-1.

It was the start of a miserable night for Caesar, who started in absence of first choice ‘keeper Adrian Foncette who is currently in Spain to witness Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League semi-final clash between Real Madrid and Manchester City via a Heineken (an official sponsor of the UCL) promotion.

Caesar was beaten again in the 57th-minute when Defence Force winger Jemel Sebro poked a shot over the line for a 2-1 lead after the Police defence and ‘keeper failed to clear a low Ross Russell Jr. cross.

The “Lawmen” did manage to level the score 2-2 in the 67th minute when forward Jameel Perry hit low to beat Clarke after a Makesi Lewis caused some trouble for the Army defence.

But two minutes later Jorsling snatched the game winner when he headed past Caesar from close up for a 3-2 Defence Force win after Glynn Franklyn had headed a Marvin Jones corner back across the area.

Elsewhere, Club Sando defeated Point Fortin Civic 2-0 in a bottom-of-the-table clash at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Devon Modeste opened the scoring in the 37th-minute and Jesse Downing completed the win in the 78th-minute to put Sando on 30 points in seventh where they will finish at the end of their debut DPL season, with Police on 37 points in sixth and Civic on 19 points in eight with two games left.

Hashim Arcia sinks Connection; Defence Force and Jabloteh maintain push for 2017 CONCACAF Champions League qualifying spot
ttproleague.com


Hashim Arcia struck eleven minutes from time at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Friday night to celebrate his first goal against former employers W Connection to give Defence Force FC a crucial 1-0 win in the final push for a 2017/18 CONCACAF Champions League qualifying spot.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder executed a low right-footer beyond goalkeeper Julani Archibald and off the far upright to break the deadlock against the ‘Savonetta Boys” he had served for five years before switching to Defence Force this season.

With Digicel Pro League holders Central FC (52 points) four points clear at the summit with three games in hand and only a win away from repeating as league champions, four teams – Defence Force, San Juan Jabloteh, North East Stars and W Connection – were left in a squeeze for a top-two finish which qualifies teams into the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship, which also serves as the Caribbean qualifier tournament towards the CONCACAF Champions League.

Central, who recently repeated as Caribbean champions and will be joined by W Connection and Haiti’s Don Bosco FC at the 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League, will attempt to secure the DPL repeat by Sunday with a win against North East Stars at the Mannie Ramjoh Stadium (kick-off time 4pm).

But North East Stars (44 points), led by former Central coach Ross Russell, are on a seven-game winning streak in the league and, like the teams above them, the “Sangre Grande Stars” are hoping to keep alive their chances at the highly sought-after CONCACAF Champions League qualifying spot.

Inspired by the recent goal-scoring feat of Kerry Baptiste, North East Stars are chasing maximum points against Central and Jabloteh in their remaining league fixtures, while Connection (43 points) have remaining games against Club Sando and cellar-positioned St. Ann’s Rangers.

Defence Force (48 points), with full points earned against Connection, returned to second position on the league standings but only ahead of third-positioned San Juan Jabloteh on a superior goal-difference, after the “San Juan Kings” had temporarily leapfrogged the Army/Coast Guard combination with a 4-1 hammering of Club Sando in the earlier game at the Couva venue.

Marvin Gordon’s Defence Force have just one remaining game against Morvant Caledonia United, while Jabloteh with remaining games against North East Stars and Central face a tough road to the end but have six points to play for and the best mathematical chance of securing a top-two finish after the “Couva Sharks”.

Jabloteh midfielder Keyon Edwards made the best of a rare start in recent months by scoring a double – netting on either side of the break from distance – while forward Jamal Gay and winger Nathan Lewis finished with a goal each in the Keith Jeffrey coached-side’s eighth league win from a 9-game unbeaten streak in the DPL.

Edwards, who last scored on January 12 in a 3-2 win over Point Fortin Civic and only had two goals to his name this season prior to kick-off, fired off the post from distance to put Jabloteh 1-0 ahead after 15 minutes and a missed penalty strike by Jamaican Adrian Reid five minutes earlier.

Reid (A), usually clinical from the spot, rolled his effort wide of goalkeeper Jason Belfon’s upright after Nathan Lewis was brought down in the area by defender Kemuel Rivers.

Jabloteh then grabbed a 2-0 cushion in the 36th-minute when forward Jamal Gay snapped a two-month dry spell by executing a cool finish past a hapless Belfon for his ninth league goal after shrugging off a challenge from defender Corneal Thomas to win a deep pass and enter the area.

Sando, who have already consolidated their seventh position finish in their DPL debut season, pulled a goal back in stoppage-time of the first half through forward Devon Modeste who controlled a Shaquille Holder cross off his chest before slipping beyond two challengers and slapping home past goalkeeper Andrew Durant for a 1-2 deficit.

But Edwards, with a cool finish from distance off a short corner by winger Tyrone Charles, sailed the ball beyond goalkeeper Belfon for a 3-1 Jabloteh lead to complete his double.

Charles, completely unmarked, missed his opportunity to join the scoresheet on 68 minutes when he headed wide of the upright off substitute forward Brent Sam’s perfectly placed cross.

Then in stoppage-time Nathan Lewis, who was denied by the upright in the 72th-minute, made it 4-1 by curling the ball beyond Belfon for his 13th league goal this season after a move down the flank and weaving past defenders Kevon Neaves and Moron Phillip to enter the area.

But the night still young to celebrate, and in the 79th-minute of the second game Arcia broke the deadlock against Connection for only his second league goal this season to put Defence Force ahead.

Arcia, who had sliced an effort high seven minutes inside the second half off a deflected Devorn Jorsling pass, redeemed himself following a move involving Jorsling and feed from Akeem Roach.

Roach had best chance of the earlier half with two bites of the cherry in the 8th-minute from just outside the six-yard area but Connection defender Alvin Jones got his body across the goal to deflect the midfielder’s second attempt over for a corner.

Connection, minus head coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier who is believed to be away on personal matters, also stood without midfielder Hughtun Hector and forward Shahdon Winchester while attacking midfielder Jomal Williams was scratched from the starting eleven but entered off the bench in the second half.

Connection’s front line of Grenada international Jamal Charles, Suriname international Dimitrie Apai and St. Lucian Malik St. Prix failed to pack the much needed punch, until late.

However Defence Force goalie Sheldon Clarke was invincible, shutting out a close range blast from St. Prix in the 75th-minute and another point blank save against the St. Lucian in the 83rd-minute before making a crucial stop two minutes later when he won the ball at midfielder Briel Thomas’ feet following a Connection free kick into the area.

Defence Force substitute Richard Roy had the last best chance of the contest in stoppage-time but Archibald brilliantly matched the forward’s effort towards the near post.

Elsewhere Morvant Caledonia United (21 points) whipped home side Point Fortin Civic (19 points) 3-0 to leapfrog the southerners for eight position on the league standings.

Jamaal Harvey opened the scoring in the 24th-minute for the recent Lucozade Sport Goal Shield champions at the Mahaica Oval before Akim Armstrong converted from the penalty spot in the 45th-minute. Kyle Bartholomew wrapped up the win with an 88th minute item.

Central FC retains Digicel Pro League crown.
ttproleague.com.


Jason Marcano leads ‘Couva Sharks’ to $1 million Pro League title repeat with two games to spare

Central FC were crowned the 2015/16 Digicel Pro League champions on Sunday with two games to spare after a comprehensive 4-0 win over North East Stars at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium put the “Couva Sharks” at an unassailable 55 points.

Veteran forward Jason Marcano netted a brace – his second item scored from the penalty spot – and after a goal each from defensive midfielder Jamal Jack and full-back Kevon Villaroel, the die was cast; the league title – which carries with it TT$1 million – remained in the hands of Central.

Stars, meanwhile, on 44 points and having their seven-game winning streak in the league snapped, saw an end to their efforts for the highly sort after CONCACAF Champions League qualifying spot which is awarded to the top-two finishing teams who will contest next season’s Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship, which qualifies three Caribbean clubs to the CCL.

Central, who recently repeated as Caribbean Club champions, entered the annals of the professional era of Trinidad and Tobago football by becoming only the third club after W Connection (2000 & 2001) and San Juan Jabloteh (2002 & 2003 / 2007 & 2008) to successfully defend the domestic league crown.

“We really wanted to defend our Caribbean and Pro League titles and the players are deserving champions,” Central FC’s Dale Saunders told ttproleague.com. “Credit to the players for working really hard throughout the season. Credit to the management and staff who have a great chemistry in putting our heads together with the players and we have been able to get the job done.”

Saunders said the “Couva Sharks” have the quality above other teams with a good mixture of youth and experience.

“We (Central) had no doubt in retaining our league title,” added the 42-year-old former Trinidad and Tobago international now with his first league championship as head coach. “We always believed in the players and the quality we have in the camp, and we knew that once we kept our heads together we would (get) the job done.”

Central midfielder and captain Leston Paul told ttproleague.com, “We truly deserve [winning both the Caribbean Club Championship and Pro League titles]. It's a long season with lots of ups and downs but [our] players were willing to work hard every day in sticking with the team’s goals [to repeat as Caribbean and Pro League champions].”

Last season Central became the sixth club in the history of the professional era (1999 to present) to win the league. Now under the charge of former assistant coach Saunders, the “Couva Sharks” are celebrating again as league champions while second-positioned Defence Force and third-placed Jabloteh, both on 48 points, are left to challenge for the final CCL qualifiers spot.

Defence Force have just one remaining game against Morvant Caledonia while Jabloteh have six points to play with fixtures against North East Stars and Central.

Marcano handed Central a 1-0 lead on 37 minutes, which lasted into the break, after he lifted a deflected Kaydion Gabriel cross over Stars goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel who hesitated twice before being stranded off the line.

But it was Stars, coached by former Central coach Ross Russell, who started the brighter of the two sides on the sunny afternoon on the pristine Marabella venue surface with forward Kerry Baptiste hitting the back of the net twice – but both goals were overturned due to infringements (offside and foul on goalkeeper Javon Sample respectively) – before his luck ran sour again when he struck the upright; all within the first 22 minutes.

Samuel kept the Stars’ deficit at a minimum towards the half with saves against Sean De Silva, Jack and Darren Mitchell and the “Sangre Grande Stars”.

But Marcano doubled his scoring to give Central a 2-0 cushion after 56 minutes, hitting into the top corner of Samuel’s netting from the penalty spot.

Referee Rashby Mc Phie awarded the kick after Sean De Silva was brought down from behind by defender Glenton Wolfe inside the area after running almost 30 yards towards goal after a neat one-two with Marcano to break free.

“It was today or no other day,” said Marcano after the game. “And we are happy to seal the title today.”

The former Jabloteh league winner credited “team chemistry” for the league success which will now allow younger players more playing time in the two remaining league fixtures against St. Ann’s Rangers and Jabloteh.

Commenting on the comfortable 4-0 win against the Stars, Marcano said, “It was only a matter of time before we got into our momentum to get the result. Every team come out to put their best but we were the better team today – all season (chuckles).”

Central put the game further out of Stars’ reach on the hour mark with a 3-0 score when Jack curled a sweet strike out of Samuel's reach and into the top corner after a feed from Mitchell.

Then came goal number 4 (-0) on 69 minutes when Villaroel smashed a left-footed strike past Samuel after De Silva knocked down Marcano’s cross inside the area after a trip by Keryn Navarro had allowed the latter win the ball and run free towards the left of the area.

Marcano missed out on his hat trick three minutes later, hitting over-bar after he was played through by Jack, and seven minutes from time, substitute Ricardo John saw his attempt cleared away at the goal mouth by Stars defender Kion Joseph.

Both sides will meet again on Tuesday in the quarter-finals of the Digicel Pro Bowl which Central are holders.

“I expect it to be a tough game again,” predicts Central FC midfielder and captain Leston Paul. “Today they came out well but I think we suffocate them with the goal near the end of the first half and then in the second half took advantage of some more chances and took over the game from there.”

Also on Sunday, Police FC edged cellar-placed St. Ann’s Rangers 1-0 at the Ato Boldon Stadium through a late Kareem Freitas strike – the forward’s 13th league goal this season – to put the sixth-positioned “Lawmen” on 40 points.

Both sides will return to play on Tuesday in the Pro Bowl quarterfinal round with Police to tackle W Connection and Rangers against Jabloteh.

Jamal Gay brace puts Jabloteh in command of final CONCACAF qualifiers spot.
ttproleague.com.


San Juan Jabloteh survived a late clawback attempt by Central FC, edging the 2015/16 Digicel Pro League champions 3-2, to command the final of two spots to next season’s Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship, which also serves as the qualifier tournament to the prestigious CONCACAF Champions League.

The win hurdled Jabloteh (51 points) over Defence Force (48 points) for second spot on the DPL standings. Now a draw for coach Keith Jeffrey’s side against North East Stars in their final game on Saturday from 4pm at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium will seal the top-two finish and a return to the CFU Club Championship.

The win also put Jabloteh one point ahead of North East Stars for the Kevon Carter trophy which is awarded to the team with the highest points tally from Round Three in the DPL.

However, a win for Defence Force against Morvant Caledonia United in their final game on Saturday from 4pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium, coupled by a loss for the “San Juan Kings” against the Stars, can lift the Army/Coast Guard combination – boasting a superior goal-difference – to a second place finish in the league behind Central (55 points), who have qualified for a third consecutive CFU Club Championship.

Jabloteh entered Tuesday’s rescheduled DPL fixture at the Hasely Crawford Stadium aware a slip-up would favour Defence Force’s ambitions for the highly sort after top-two finish.

But a first half brace from forward Jamal Gay after teammate Fabian Reid opened Jabloteh’s scoring for a 3-0 lead before the half hour mark, made sure the slip-up didn’t happen, although Central had rebounded from the sluggish first half performance and a dismissed penalty shout just before the break to score twice from the penalty spot within the last 10 minutes.

Reid (F) single-handedly gave Jabloteh a 1-0 lead just seven minutes into the contest, slipping the ball through the legs of Central third choice goalkeeper Javon Sample after wrong-siding defender Keion Goodridge for his first goal since March 9 in a 3-0 win over Caledonia. It was the Jamaican midfielder’s 5th league goal and eighth in all competitions this season.

Then it was from Reid’s strike in the 16th minute off a Tyrone Charles cross, that Gay slapped in from close range to cushion Jabloteh 2-0 against a depleted Central side.

Gay then completed his double by the 27th-minute thanks to a poor goal-kick from Sample who played the ball at the forward feet less than 30 yards out. Gay raced towards goal before hitting past Sample for his 10th league goal this season and twelfth in all competitions.

Central without six regulars including first choice goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams and captain Leston Paul, featured a starting line-up that included Kadeen Corbin, Nicholas Dillon and Ricardo John up front while veteran attacker Jason Marcano was overwhelmed in midfield before being replaced by Darren Mitchell almost immediately after Jabloteh’s third item.

The “Couva Sharks” finally pegged their first goal back in the 80th-minute when Corbin scored off the upright to beat goalkeeper Shemel Louison from the spot to reduce the deficit 1-3 after he was upended in the area by Keyon Edwards.

Referee Rashby Mc Phie, who dismissed a penalty appeal by Central after John was brought down by Louison moments before the break, pointed to the spot again in the 84th-minute, ruling a handball against former “Couva Sharks” defender Akeem Benjamin.

Substitute Darren Mitchell stepped up and comfortably converted from the spot to further reduce the deficit 2-3, but that stood the final score-line after a last ditched overhead attempt by Jamal Jack which surprised everyone, including Louison who was lucky to see the ball fly wide.

Simultaneously at the Ato Boldon Stadium, W Connection were celebrating a 3-0 win over cellar-positioned St. Ann’s Rangers in another rescheduled fixture.

Suriname forward Dimitrie Apai scored twice, netting in the 17th and 52nd minutes, before St. Lucia international Kurt Frederick wrapped up the scoring in the 62nd minute. The win lifted coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s side one spot up into fourth position with 46 points ahead of their final league game against Club Sando from 8pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium after Central take on Rangers from 6pm to complete their fixtures.

Results

San Juan Jabloteh 3 (Fabian Reid 7’, Jamal Gay 16’, 27’) vs Central FC 2 (Kadeem Corbin 80’ penalty, Darren Mitchell 85’ penalty), at the Hasely Crawford Stadium;

Jabloteh clinch CFU return; ‘San Juan Kings’ snatch Kevon Carter trophy along with second place Pro League finish.
ttproleague.com.


San Juan Jabloteh will mark their return to the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship – the qualifier tournament to the CONCACAF Champions League – for the first time seven years when they contest the 2017 edition.

This after the former Caribbean champions cemented a top-two finish behind champions Central FC in the 2015-16 Digicel Pro League (DPL) by plucking a 1-0 win over fifth-positioned North East Stars at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium on the final day (Saturday) courtesy a second half Tyrone Charles strike.

Jabloteh, undefeated in their last nine league games with 8 wins and one draw, finished with 54 points – four points behind Central (58 points), who were recently crowned, for a second consecutive time, CFU and DPL champions.

Jabloteh, 2003 CFU champions, last competed at the Caribbean tournament in 2010 when they finished third behind champions Puerto Rico Islanders and runners-up Joe Public.

“This shows the club (Jabloteh) and the management made a good decision in putting me here to get Jabloteh back into CFU,” said Keith Jeffrey, who was installed as technical director/head coach when Jabloteh resumed operations for the 2013-14 season following a one-year hiatus due to financial strains after main sponsor CL Financial went into receivership.

Jabloteh, the four-time (2002, 2003, 2007 & 2008) Pro League champions, finished second from bottom on their Pro League return but Jeffrey led the “San Juan Kings” to an improved sixth-position finish in 2014-15. Now after his third season in charge the San Juan club, Jabloteh for the first time since 2009 are celebrating a top-two finish — Jeffrey becoming the club’s first local coach to do so in Trinidad and Tobago professional era.

Defence Force (49 points), the only team on the final day with a virtual chance of hurdling Jabloteh for the high sought-after CONCACAF Champions League qualifiers spot, finished third, only ahead of W Connection (49 points), who they face in the Digicel Pro Bowl 2016 final on May 27, by a single goal-difference (+31/+30), after rallying from behind to a 1-1 draw with Morvant Caledonia United on Saturday.

The win in Marabella also saw the Jeffrey coached-Jabloteh hold off North East Stars, 25-21 points, to claim the Kevon Carter trophy which is awarded to the team with the highest points tally from Round Three in the DPL.

“As a former Jabloteh player, they (the Jabloteh directors) knew I had the Jabloteh blood in me,” explained the 54-year-old Jeffrey. “Now the board is happy. I am happy from my achievement because the club’s plan was always, within three years, to return to CFU.”

The Jabloteh coach thanked club boss Jerry Hospidales and CEO Azaad Khan for their confidence in appointing him as coach. He also thanked the club’s board for their unwavering support in allowing him freedom “so that success can happen.”

Jeffrey said his success in the past with San Juan North Secondary in secondary schools league, “winning two national titles (InterCol and Big Five) and five zonal titles demonstrated my ability as a coach, and because of the close relationship between Jabloteh and the school, it helped in my appointment as Jabloteh coach. I am also the only coach since 1974 to achieve two national titles with San Juan (North Secondary).”

Jeffrey added that working alongside former Jabloteh coaches, Brazilian Ronaldo Borba and England’s Ricky Hill and Terry Fenwick, helped in his development as a coach.

On Saturday, Tyrone Charles’ deflected goal on the hour mark stood the only goal of the game but Jeffrey believes Jabloteh should have ended with a handful against the Sangre Grande outfit.

“While we needed just a draw [to fulfil our ambitions] we didn’t play that way …we played for the win,” said Jeffrey. “What surprised me though, was that North East Stars didn’t give it a better fight being a team that have done so well in the league in the last couple months. I was happy with our result but we should have scored nothing less than four or five goals.”

Jamaican midfielder Fabian Reid was denied twice in the fifth minute by former Jabloteh goalkeeper Shane Mattis, denying his fellow countryman with a double-save.

But Mattis was unfortunate in the 60th-minute when he was left wrong-sided by Charles’ strike which took a wicked deflection off the boot of defender Kern Navarro.

Grenadian Shemel Louison, one of a handful of foreigners including Jamaica’s Damian Williams and Adrian Reid and Grenada’s Garth Thomas in Jabloteh’s squad, made an excellent save two minutes from time to preserve his side’s marginal lead when he keep out a header from Stars’ substitute Jean-Luc Rochford.

“I am proud of my players all season,” continued Jeffrey. “But while I have a very good group of players, the team aren’t balanced. So now that we are back in CFU and want to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League, it’s my intention to add about five quality players next season so that we can have balance in the team to compete at CFU while operating at the Pro League because the ambition is to go one step further next season by winning the league title.”

Jeffrey hinted that his 2016-17 season signing targets are former Jabloteh players who presently represent top clubs in the Pro League.

Also on Saturday, Point Fortin Civic saved their best for last when they defeated visiting Police FC 5-0 at the Mahaica Oval for their biggest win of the season. The win, only Civic’s third in the last 12 games in all competitions, hurdled the Point Fortin club over Caledonia, both on 22 points, for an eighth-position finish by a single goal difference (-28/-29).
