FS, ok, I did confirm he could not have been replaced as all subs had already been made. I am watching WI Sports & they are showing the WC vs NES game, second half so I will monitor.
I suspect they probably showed your game before but they usually repeat so I will look out.

FA-Cup Final: W Connection vs Central FC (18-Dec-2013).
« Reply #272 on: December 13, 2013, 08:33:09 AM »
FYI

W Connection now has a squad of 22 (without Jones, Cyrus, Britto and Clarence).

They have been using two completely different starting squads in the league and FA and doing quite well, with the quality of the play as well as the results  not  being compromised.

Connection have a number of players to get by and their rotation policy has been working for they. Credit to the head coach and staff for that.

What has also gone unnoticed is the age of the squad and the experience they have. Jomal Williams, Neil Benjamin are both 19 and in their 3rd pro league senior season.

Joevin 22 in his fifth, Alvin Jones 19 in his second. Just to name a few. The average age of the squad is 22 years and 9 months and when you consider Gerard Williams is 25 and in his 7th full season and Christian Viveros 25 also and  in his 8th you as a football man will understand that the results they are getting is not by guess.

Add Mikeil Williams 23 and Daneil Cyrus 22 and it gets even better. Spice it up with Stefano Rijssell at 21 and playing as a seasoned veteran the taste gets even better.

Not to mention Jerrol Britto and company, the experience of Silvio Spann others.

Another missing piece of information is that almost 50% of this young squad had won a league Championship for them two seasons ago, and by the way there is Shahdon Winchester 21 who will join Connection for two months before heading back to Finland for his second season there.

It is about careful planning and investing in young talent and putting them in at the deep end at a early age.

For the records Joevin made his first senior start for Connection at 18, Jomal at 17, Benjamin at 17, Winchester at 16, Gerard Williams at 17 and Christian Viveros at 17.

Good points, but they had roughly the same team last year minus Joao, and whilst 1 years experience might matter in the first couple years, would you say that 5 over 4, or 8 over 7 years experience are to have such an impact?

Speaking/asking from ignorance, have they focused on teamwork and movement? Has teh demise of Defence Force this season helped?

W Connection are the 2013 FA Cup Champions after a penalty shoot out.
At half time, scores were level at 1-1 with Jomal Williams scoring for W Connection & Quintero replying almost immediately for Central. Half time score 1-1.
2nd half Oliver put Central ahead via the penalty spot, W Connection replied almost immediately via Neil Benjamin, score 2-2.
Match went into extra time and ended 2-2.
W Connection won via sudden death 6-5.

FA champs W Connection to start defence at preliminary stage.
ttproleague.com.


Civic gets free second round passage after Harlem Strikers pullout

Four-time FA Trophy winners and defending champions DIRECTV W Connection are among three top flight clubs that were drawn to contest the preliminary round of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA)-run FA Trophy, 2015 edition.

Determined at a random draw, of 38 teams, conducted last Wednesday at the TTFA office at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain, three (3) TT Pro League clubs: W Connection, Defence Force and Point Fortin Civic, and four (4) National Super League (NSL) clubs: Guaya United, Defence Force, Siparia Spurs and Real Maracas, were drawn in the twelve-team preliminary round to be contested on Wednesday 28 January 2015.

However, Point Fortin Civic, drawn to host Central FA outfit Harlem Strikers at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin in the preliminary round, have received free passage to the next round which will be drawn on Monday 2 February.

According to the TTFA, Harlem Strikers withdrew from the tournament, indicating that due to various reasons they are unable to field a team.

Meanwhile Connection – the reigning Digicel Pro League winners and five-title winners of last season – must face National Super League outfit Real Maracas from 8 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium in the preliminary round to begin their title defence.

FA Cups abroad, in particular England, usually include top tier clubs at the latter stage although the tournament is known for the possibility for the "minnows" from the lower divisions to become "giant killers" by eliminating top clubs.

But for a second consecutive tournament, W Connection, arguably the most successful club in the last 15 years, must start from below.

FA winners in 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014 and seven-time finalists, Connection, coached by St Lucian Stuart Charles-Fevrier, have met Maracas just once competitively, defeating the NSL outfit 2-0 in the preliminary round of the 2013 Toyota Classic, the only tournament that pools Pro League clubs with NSL clubs.

Last season Connection defeated rivals Central FC 6-5 on kicks from the penalty spot following a 2-2 draw in the final of the FA Trophy.

The other FA preliminary round clashes to be contested on Wednesday, includes: Siparia Spurs against Maple FC from 3:30 pm at the Fyzabad Recreation Ground; House of Dread to host Guaya United from 6:30 pm at Constantine Ground in Macoya;

Queens Park Cricket Club (QPCC) to host Defence Force (Pro League) from 6:30 pm at Dibe Recreation Ground in Long Circular; and Cedar Hill United against Defence Force (Super League) from 7 pm at Edingburgh 500 in Chaguanas.

Of the thirty-six (38) teams drawn: Nine (9) TT Pro League clubs, eleven (11) National Super League clubs, and three (3) from each of the six (6) national zones, with the exception of Harlem Strikers will compete in the 2015 FA Trophy.

TT Pro League (Central FC, W Connection, Defence Force, North East Stars, Caledonia AIA, Point Fortin Civic, Police FC, San Juan Jabloteh, St. Ann's Rangers)

National Super League (Real Maracas, Guaya United, Petrotrin Palo Seco, Club Sando, D’ Lime Bar Goal City, Bethel United, WASA, FC Santa Rosa, Siparia Spurs, Stokelyvale FC, Defence Force)

Eastern FA (Prison F. C., House of Dread, SKHY F.C.)

Eastern Counties FU (Biche FC, Rio Claro United, Tamana United)

Central FA (Cunupia FC, Enterprise Life Sports)

Northern FA (Maple FC, QPCC FC, St. Francois Nationals)

Southern FA (Moruga FC, Penal All Stars, Cedar Hill United)

Tobago FA (Youth Stars FC, Black Rock F.C., Roxborough Lakers)

Since the debut of professional teams into the competition in 1999, clubs from the former Professional Football League (PFL) and the current TT Pro League have won the cup in all but one of those years. WASA of the Super League were surprise winners in 2006, defeating two professional clubs, including North East Stars 4-2 on penalties after the final ended in a 3–3 draw.

FA Trophy 2015 Preliminary Round

Wednesday 28 January 2015

Siparia Spurs vs Maple FC—3:30 pm, Fyzabad Recreation Ground

House of Dread vs Guaya United—6:30 pm, Constantine Ground, Macoya

Roy bangs hat-trick as Army crush QPCC 7-1 in FA Trophy prelims.
ttproleague.com.


Colombian Rodriquez snatches late Connection winner over Real Maracas

Richard Roy scored three times in the second half and Josimar Belgrave twice, when Defence Force (Pro League) crushed Northern Football Association (NFA) outfit Queens Park Cricket Club (QPCC) FC 7-1 in the preliminary round of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA)-run FA Trophy on Wednesday.

QPCC, hosting the soldiers at Dibe Recreation Ground in Long Circular, scored first but it was an own goal credited to former Trinidad and Tobago youth player Chad De Freitas in the 25th minute – a 1-0 lead that Defence Force took into the break.

Jerome Charles equalised for QPCC in the 58th minute but Defence Force stormed back with six goals.

Forward Richard Roy netted in the 68th, 72nd and 84th minutes while midfielder Josimar Belgrave grabbed a double with items in the 80th and 87th minute. Winger Akeem Roach was also on the score sheet for the soldiers with a goal in the 63rd minute.

As for defending FA Trophy champions and four-time winners DIRECTV W Connection, the “Savonetta Boys” needed an 89th minute winner from Colombian defender Christian Rodriguez at the Ato Boldon Stadium to get by Super League outfit Real Maracas 1-0.

Connection, coming off a hard fought 1-0 Digicel Pro League win over North East Stars less than 24 hours before, utilised a number of non-starters and although creating a number of openings failed to put a shot on target before January signing, 25-year-old Rodriquez, scored his first and very valuable "Savonetta Boys" goal.

It was a deflected strike from distance by the Colombian that left Maracas goalie Kellon Rampersad beaten with a minute of regulation time left at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Connection, FA Trophy winners in 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014 and seven-time finalists, and Real Maracas had met once before, with the coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier's men defeating the Super League outfit 2-0 in the preliminary round of the 2013 Toyota Classic.

Connection and Defence Force advances into the second round, which will be drawn on Monday 2 February, along with fellow Pro League campaigners Point Fortin Civic, who earned free passage following the pullout of Central FC outfit Harlem Strikers.

Defence Force’s Super League players were also in preliminary round action on Wednesday defeating Cedar Hill United 3-1 at the Edingburgh 500 Recreating Ground in Chaguanas, while Guaya United defeated House of Dread 3-1 at Constantine Ground in Macoya, and Maple FC defeated Siparia Spurs 3-2 on kicks from the penalty mark following a 2-2 draw at Fyzabad Recreation Ground.

For the next round, the advancing teams will join Central FC, North East Stars, Caledonia AIA, Police FC, San Juan Jabloteh and St. Ann's Rangers (TT Pro League); Guaya United, Petrotrin Palo Seco, Club Sando, D’ Lime Bar Goal City, Bethel United, WASA, FC Santa Rosa, Stokelyvale FC and Defence Force (National Super League); Prison FC and SKHY FC (Eastern FA); Biche FC, Rio Claro United and Tamana United (Eastern Counties FU); Cunupia FC and Enterprise Life Sports (Central FA); Maple FC and St. Francois Nationals (Northern FA); Moruga FC and Penal All Stars (Southern FA); and Youth Stars FC, Black Rock FC and Roxborough Lakers (Tobago FA).

Central crush Rio Claro 7-0 in FA Trophy; Connection avenge Classic loss by booting WASA out.
ttproleague,com.


Eight Pro League clubs march into FA Trophy round of 16

Two-time consecutive finalists Central FC illustrated their intentions to go a step further in winning the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) FA Trophy this season by hammering Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU) outfit Rio Claro United 7-0 on Sunday in the Round of 32.

Central, the current Digicel Pro League leaders and defeated FA Trophy finalists in 2012-2013 (2-0 against Caledonia AIA) and 2013-2014 (6-5 on penalties following a 2-2 draw against DIRECTV W Connection), dominated both halves against Rio Claro.

Midfielders Jean-Luc Rochford (28th and 80th minutes) and Nathaniel Garcia (30th and 46th minutes) scored on either side of the break to earn a double each at the Ato Boldon Stadium after Trinidad and Tobago international Ataulla Guerra (21st minute) opened the scoring. Brandon Simpson (66th minute) and Densil Daniel (90th minute) were the other scorers, snatching a goal each in the second half for the Zoran Vranes-coached “Couva Sharks”.

Jean-Luc’s eldest brother, Jovan Rochford, also scored a double on Sunday, but his Super League side, FC Santa Rosa, fell to a 4-2 defeat against Pro League-bound Super League champions Club Sando at the Marvin Lee Stadium.

While defending FA Trophy champions and four-time winners (1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014) W Connection, boasting a second-string outfit on Sunday, handed 2006 winners WASA FC a 3-0 defeat at the WASA Ground in St. Joseph to also advance into the Round of 16, which is expected to be drawn on Monday and contested on Sunday 01 March.

T&T Under-20 midfielder Aikim Andrews, with a stroke of brilliance in the 18th minute, gave the seven-time finalists a 1-0 lead when his slightly deflected blast from 30 yards out flew into the top far corner of WASA and former T&T Youth World Cup goalie Glenroy Samuel’s net.

WASA, who defeated Connection 4-3 on penalties after a late 1-1 draw in the preliminary round of the Toyota Classic last November, failed to measure up to a relatively young “Savonnetta Boys”’ bunch.

Regulars Hashim Arcia, Gerard Williams, Jerrel Britto, Mikeil Williams, Kurt Frederick, Tremain Shayn Paul, Alvin Jones, Akeem Garcia and goalkeeper Julani Archibald were all left out of coach Stuart Charles Fevrier’s FA Round of 32 squad, with Tuesday’s DPL match against Caledonia from 6 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium very important to Connection.

But that didn’t deny the reigning DPL champions, currently positioned second on the 2014-2015 DPL table, in avenging the loss suffered three months ago against WASA.

Connection, 1-0 winners over Super League outfit Real Maracas in the FA Trophy qualifying round last month, grabbed two more goals in the last 15 minutes to complete the comfortable 3-0 win over WASA—coached by former T&T international Marvin Faustin.

Substitute Neil Benjamin Jr, just two minutes onto the pitch, made it 2-0 in the 76th minute. The speedy winger latched onto a perfect Anslem Jackson pass to hit past Samuel from close up.

Then on the 84th minute forward Shirvone St. Prix made it 3-0 to put the match completely out of WASA's reach.

St. Prix, who had a number of failed opportunities throughout the encounter, was at the end of a flowing play involving Triston Hodge, Benjamin and Jabari Mitchell at the edge of the box, and the St. Lucian executed a cool finish, rolling the ball past a hapless Samuel.

Former winners Police, San Juan Jabloteh, North East Stars, Defence Force and Caledonia AIA, as well as Pro League compatriot Point Fortin Civic advanced to the Round of 16, with the exception of St. Ann’s Rangers.

Police, FA Trophy winners in 1975, 1999 and 1994, whipped Tobago Football Association (TFA) outfit, Youth Stars 4-0 with Kenaz Williams (31st and 53rd minutes) leading with a double and January signings Makesi Lewis (44th minute) and Shaquille Nesbit (59th minute) netting a goal each at the Police Training Ground in Long Circular.

Jabloteh, winners in 1998, 2005 and 2010-2011, advanced with a 4-1 win over Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU) outfit Biche United at the Biche Recreation Ground with Shaquille Bertrand (20th minute), Newton Sterling 31st minute), Brendon Figuera (66th minute) and Kendes Garcia (90’+ minute) for the “San Juan Kings” while Deron Lewis (54th minute) scored the home side’s lone item.

While the Stars, winners in 2003, Defence Force, champions in 1974, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1991 and 1996, and Caledonia, winners in 2008, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, all progressed out of the Round of 32 with 2-0 wins over Enterprise Life Sport (Central Football Association), Defence Force (Super League) and Prison FC (Eastern Football Association) respectively.

As for Civic, coming off a three match winning streak in the DPL, the Point Fortin club needed kicks from the penalty mark to defeat troublesome Super League outfit, Petrotrin Palo Seco, 4-3 on kicks from the penalty mark following a goalless draw at the Mahaica Oval.

While Rangers – at an all-time low with just one point after 14 league games in the DPL – were 2-0 losers against Super League’s Guaya United at the Guaya High School Ground in Guayaguayare.

The fixture between zone teams Tamana United and St. Francois Nationals had to be postponed due to the D’Marie Hill Recreation Ground in Sangre Grande not being sufficiently marked, while zone teams Penal All Stars and Moruga United failed to show for their matches in Tobago against Super League outfit Stokelyvale FC and Black Rock FC respectively. The TTFA FA Trophy organising committee are expected to give a verdict on Monday after reviewing the reasons of Penal All Stars and Moruga United over their no-show.

Meanwhile Pro League clubs must switch their focus to the DPL on Tuesday 24 and Friday 27 February ahead of the FA Trophy Round of 16 on Sunday 01 March.

In Round Two Match Day Eight of the DPL on Tuesday, Civic will welcome Central from 4 pm at the Mahaica Oval; Rangers will meet North East Stars from 6 pm at the Marvin Lee Stadium; and at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Caledonia and Connection will contest each other from 6 pm before Jabloteh and Defence Force lock horns at 8 pm.

DPL action will continue on Friday with Round Two Match Day Nine – the final match-day of the Akeem Adams round – with a double header at the Ato Boldon Stadium featuring Caledonia against North East Stars from 6 pm and Connection against Jabloteh from 8 pm; while at the Marvin Lee Stadium, Rangers will face Defence Force from 6 pm and Police against Civic from 8 pm.

Central to tackle SKHY in FA Trophy.
ttproleague.com.


Tobago teams win home advantage in FA Trophy third round draw

Current Digicel Pro League leaders Central FC will host Eastern Football Association (EFA) side SKHY FC from 6:15 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Sunday in the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) FA Trophy Third Round (Round of 16).

Clashes were determined on Wednesday at the TTFA’s office at the Hasely Crawford Stadium during a random draw, which earned all four Tobago clubs home advantage in the third round.

Super League outfits Bethel United and Stokely Vale FC will host three-time winners (1998, 2005 & 2010-2011) Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh on Sunday from 5 pm in Montgomery and defending champions DIRECTV W Connection, winners in 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014, on Monday from 6 pm at the Plymouth Recreation Ground respectively.

Bethel defeated fellow Tobagonian Super League outfit D Lime Bar Goal City 2-1 at the Plymouth Recreation Ground in the second round (Round of 32) contested last Sunday, while Stokely Vale advanced without play after a no-show by Southern Football Association (SFA) outfit Penal All Stars.

Tobago Football Association (TFA) side Black Rock FC also advanced into the third round without play after a no-show by SFA side Moruga FC, and will host Pro League’s Defence Force from 3:30 pm at the Black Rock Recreation Ground on Sunday.

Defence Force, winners in 1974, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1991 & 1996, crushed QPCC FC 7-1 in the preliminary round before shrugging off their Super League Defence Force counterparts 2-0 in round two.

While TFA side Roxborough Lakers, 5-4 penalty winners following a 1-1 draw against Central Football Association (CFA) side Cunupia FC at the Cyd Gray Recreation Ground in the second round, will host Northern Football Association (NFA) side St. Francois Nationals from 6 pm at the same Tobago venue on Monday.

St. Francois advanced to the third round without play after Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU) side Tamana United failed to have their D’Marie Hill Recreation Ground venue prepared for play.

Also in the third round on Sunday in Trinidad, 2003 winners North East Stars will take on three-time winners (2008, 2011-2012 & 2012-2013) Caledonia AIA from 3:30 pm at the Larry Gomes Stadium in the only all-Pro League tie, while three-time winners (1975, 1990 & 1994) Police FC will host Super League outfit Guaya United from 6 pm at the Police Training Ground in St. James, and Super League champions Club Sando are against former foes Point Fortin Civic from 4 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

North East Stars reached the third round by defeating CFA side Enterprise Life Sport 2-0 — the same score-line Caledonia got past EFA side Prison FC.

Police defeated TFA side Youth Stars 4-0 and Guaya defeated Rangers 2-0, while seven-time finalists W Connection spanked Super League outfit WASA FC 3-0 at the WASA home ground in St. Joseph.

Central, defeated FA Trophy finalists in the last two tournaments, were the biggest winners of this season's second round, trashing ECFU side Rio Claro United 7-0, which should be a big worry for SKHY, who edged NFA side Maple FC 2-1.

What should be even more worrying for the EFA second placed side is that Central, winners of this season’s First Citizens Cup and Rawle Fletcher and Akeem Adams Trophies, had only utilised a second string outfit against Rio Claro, just as seven-time finalists W Connection did against 2006 winners WASA.

FA Trophy Round of 16

Sunday 1 March 2015

Police FC vs Guaya United—6 pm, Police Training Ground, St. James

Bethel United vs San Juan Jabloteh—5 pm, Montgomery, Tobago

Black Rock FC vs Defence Force—3:30 pm, Black Rock Recreation Ground, Tobago

Club Sando vs Point Fortin Civic—4 pm, Ato Boldon Stadium

Central FC vs SKHY FC—6:15 pm, Ato Boldon Stadium

North East Stars vs Caledonia AIA—3:30 pm, Larry Gomes Stadium

Army humiliate Black Rock 17-1 for possible FA Trophy scoring record.
ttproleague.com.


Five Pro League clubs advance into FA Trophy QF round; Central school SKHY 7-0; Jabloteh, Police and Pro League-bound Sando progress on kicks from the penalty spot; Stars edge Pro League compatriot Caledonia

Defence Force crushed rock into dust on Sunday when the TT Pro League club humiliated home side Black Rock FC 17-1 at the Black Rock Recreation Ground in Tobago in the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) FA Trophy 2015 Third Round (Round of 16) for the biggest win in years, if not in the history of the tournament – the oldest football competition in Trinidad and Tobago dating back to 1927.

While in Trinidad at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Eastern Football Association (EFA) side SKHY FC where schooled 7-0 by current Digicel Pro League leaders Central FC in the first match of a double header at the Couva venue.

Central head coach Zoran Vranes opted to rest his star players such as Willis Plaza, Marvin Oliver, Jamal Jack, Uriah Bentick, Elton John and goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams among others, just as he did in a 7-0 win over Eastern Counties Football Union (ECFU) side Rio Claro in the FA Trophy Round of 32, but the "Couva Sharks" still managed a comprehensive win to cruise into the quarterfinal round, which will be drawn in the upcoming week and contested on Sunday 8 March.

Midfielder Jean-Luc Rochford netted a hat-trick against SKHY, scoring in the 8th, 58th and 61st minutes, with his third a 25-yard free kick that SKHY goalie Tarik Hopkins failed to stop as it entered the roof of the net.

Hopkins was beaten by midfielder Leston Paul in as early as the second minute on an afternoon that included goals by Dwight Quintero in the 49th minute, a converted penalty by Michael Yaw Darko in the 54th minute, and a sizzling Nathaniel Garcia strike in the 85th minute to complete the 7-0 score for the two-time defeated (2012-2013 & 2013-2014) finalists.

But it was less embarrassing than what Tobago Football Association (TFA) side Black Rock had to endure in front of home fans against six-time FA Trophy champions ( 1974, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1991 & 1996) Defence Force, who whipped QPCC FC 7-1 in this season’s preliminary round before ousting their Super League side Defence Force 2-0 in the Round of 32.

Defence Force forward Richard Roy, who scored a hat-trick against QPCC, bagged five goals against Black Rock, netting in the 11th, 22th, 34th, 61st and 88th minutes, while midfielders Josimar Belgrave, netting in the 42th, 43rd and 80th minutes, and Akeem Roach, finding the back of the net in the 57th, 63rd and 80th minutes, grabbed hat-tricks against the Tobagonians.

And not allowing Black Rock time to lick their wounds, Devorn Jorsling (30th minute), Ross Russell Jr. (37th minute), Kellon Serette (60th minute), Marvin Jones (70th minute), Dexter Pacheco (71st minute) and Jelani Felix (86th minute) each picked up a goal for the Marvin Gordon-coached Defence Force before Michael Carrington netted Black Rock’s lone item on the 90th minute.

In other FA Trophy third round results North East Stars, winners in 2003, edged Pro League compatriots and three-time winners (2008, 2011-2012 & 2012-2013) Caledonia AIA 1-0 at the Larry Gomes Stadium with an own goal credited to Nicholas Mercano in the 59th minute, exacting revenge over the Morvant-Laventille club that defeated them by the same score-line last Friday in the Round Two Match Day Nine of the 2014-2015 Digicel Pro League.

While Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh, winners in 1998, 2005 and 2010-2011, Police FC, winners in 1975, 1999 & 1994, and Pro League-bound Club Sando all advanced into the quarterfinal round with kicks from the penalty mark.

Jabloteh defeated Tobago’s Super League outfit Bethel United 5-3 on kicks following a 1-1 draw in Montgomery, Tobago. Vernon Waison had Bethel in front by the 17th minute but Jabloteh’s Shaquille Bertrand tied the scores 1-1 on the 47th minute.

At the Police Training Ground in St. James, Trinidad, home side Police FC, thanks to three saves on kicks from the penalty mark by goalkeeper Adrian Foncette, defeated Super League outfit Guaya United 3-1 following a hard-fought 2-2 draw.

And in the second match of the double header at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Super League champions Club Sando, equipped with former St. Ann’s Rangers coach Anthony Streete and a number of former Pro League players, overcame Point Fortin Civic 5-4 following a keenly contested 4-4 draw.

Civic opened the scoring in the 5th minute with forward Jamille Boatswain finding the back of the net with a neat flick before Sando’s Ryan Frederick equalised in the 24th minute. Weslie John had Civic back in front on the 24th minute but on the 35th minute the defender unfortunately directed a dangerous cross into his own net as the see-saw effect continue towards the break.

And even with a Marcus Joseph double, netting in the 60th and 79th minutes, in the second half, Civic were held to a 4-4 draw at the end of regulation time after goals by Sando’s Teba Mc Knight, in the 75th minute, and Jesse Downing, in the 83rd minute.

The FA Trophy Third Round will culminate on Monday 2 March in Tobago when Super League outfit Stokely Vale hosts defending champions and four-time winners (1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014) DIRECTV W Connection from 6 pm at the Plymouth Recreation Ground and simultaneously at the Cyd Gray Recreation Ground, home side Roxborough Lakers of the TFA will welcome Northern Football Association (NFA) side St. Francois Nationals.

Four-time winners and reigning FA Trophy champions DIRECTV W Connection became the sixth Pro League club to reach the quarter-finals of the 2015 edition by whipping Super League outfit Stokely Vale FC 4-0 at the Plymouth Recreation Ground, in one of the two final Third Round (Round of 16) matches contested in Tobago on Monday.

W Connection, Jabloteh, Central and N/E Stars capture FA Trophy semis spots.
ttproleague.com.


Match-ups for the all-Pro League semi-final showdown to be drawn on Wednesday

Reigning FA Trophy champions and four-time winners DIRECTV W Connection needed kicks from the penalty mark at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium on Sunday to get past lower league side St. Francois Nationals 5-3, following a goalless draw, to reach the semi-final round of the 2015 FA Trophy.

While rivals Central FC, defeated finalists in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014, defeated fellow Pro League club Police FC 2-0 at the Police Training Ground in St. James in their quarterfinal round clash to join W Connection, Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh and Defence Force for an all-Pro League FA Trophy semi-final round, carded for Sunday 15 March.

Central FC, the current Digicel Pro League leaders standing five points ahead of second placed Connection, defeated fellow league campaigners and three-time (1975, 1990 & 1994) FA Trophy winners Police FC with second half strikes by Jason Marcano (61st minute) and Willis Plaza (75th minute).

Also on Sunday, Jabloteh and North East Stars were 3-2 winners over Super League champions Club Sando and Defence Force respectively.

Jabloteh, three-time winners (1998, 2005 & 2010-2011), had a goal each from Coneal Thomas (28th minute), Newton Sterling (63rd minute) and Brent Sam (67th minute), while Club Sando – in the waiting for next season’s Pro League calendar – got goals from Kevon Woodley (39th minute) and former Trinidad and Tobago international Nigel Daniel (94th minute) at the Larry Gomes Stadium.

At the Marvin Lee Stadium, first half goals by Neveal Hackshaw (14th minute), Kaashif Thomas (28th minute) and Jomoul Francois (39th minute) earned 2003 winners North East Stars, what turned out to be an unassailable target against six-time winners (1974, 1981, 1985, 1989, 1991 & 1996) Defence Force. Defender Rodell Elcock pulled a goal back in the 45th minute for Defence Force and Ross Russell Jr. further reduced the deficit in the 52nd minute but 3-2 stood the score-line at the end.

In south Trinidad, head coach Stuart Charles Fevrier, winning coach in 1999, 2000, 2002 and 2013-2014 with W Connection, fielded a second string team against the Northern Football Association (NFA) side St. Francois Nationals.

But despite taking up residency in the St. Francois half and dominating the possession, Connection failed execute the type of flowing cohesiveness that the full strength team is known for.

Fevrier had even introduced defensive midfielder Gerard Williams and attacking midfielder Jomol Williams following the break to pull the strings but, even against the tired legs of St. Francois, an unconnected W’ failed to find the back of the net before the final regulation time blow of referee Cecile Hinds' whistle.

However, Colombian Yefer Steven Lozano led the scoring on the kicks from the penalty spot with teammates Devaughn Elliot, Jomal Williams, Christopher Rodriguez and Gerard Williams all beating St. Francois goalie Jason Bowen.

St. Francois were matching the reigning Digicel Pro League champions early but by the third kick Shawn Hinds blasted high over bar after Jabari Andall and Marlon Francois had defeated goalkeeper Aquelius Sylvester. And despite Keron Edwards well-executed on the fourth kick, Gerard Williams ended the NFA side’s ride.

“Our players’ attitude wasn’t what it should have been today,” said Fevrier following the match. “It could be because of the opponents but I don’t know for sure. We have been joggling around a lot of the players with all the football that we have but I think today the motivation wasn’t what it should have been. We are now just happy to progress to the semi-final [round] and hopefully we will more motivated then.”

The draw for the semi-final round match-ups will happen on Wednesday and Fevrier admits that whoever his side is drawn to face, the “Savonetta Boys” must improve.

“Whoever we meet we will definitely have to step up to get a better result because today our level wasn’t what I expected. We didn’t have much problems defensively but offensively we were below what we normally play.”

W Connection, Central and North East Stars will return to Digicel Pro League action on Tuesday 10 March in Round Three Match Day Three at the Marvin Lee Stadium. Central are against Caledonia AIA from 6 pm, followed by W Connection versus North East Stars from 8 pm.

On Wednesday St. Ann’s Rangers will meet Police FC from 6 pm at the Marvin Lee Stadium followed by San Juan Jabloteh against Point Fortin Civic from 8 pm to wrap up Round Three Match Day Three of the DPL.

One of the big surprise from Belmont. They still around after all these years. Luton Town, Colts, Rovers, Falcons, Ex-Pro all gone thru. This club still there. If I remembered correctly, some of the older members used to beat pan for Pandemonium or Pan Vibes.
