Caledonia pip Jabloteh in First Citizens Cup.
By Sherdon Pierre (Newsday).


SHELDON HOLDER'S 70th minute header sealed a narrow 1-0 victory for Morvant Caledonia United over neighbours San Juan Jabloteh on Saturday at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva as First Citizens Cup action continued.

The both teams had even exchanges in the early stages of the match with neither teams having any real clear-cut chances.

In the 40th minute, Jodel Brown squandered a perfect chance to send Jabloteh in front but his left-foot shot passed inches wide of the goal post and that was the last set of action during the goalless first half.

In the first minute after the restart, Jabloteh's Shaquille John attempted lob shot sailed over goalkeeper Alex Murray's post. John had several chances in a ten-minute period but failed to get on the scoresheet.

At the hour mark, Cale captain and Guyanese striker Holder was denied by goalkeeper Jesse Peters.

However, ten minutes later, Holder scored a glancing header from a superb assist from Joshua Alexander which proved to be the winning goal.

Despite several Jabloteh chances, Morvant Caledonia United held their composure for the 1-nil victory.

Could anyone get the people who running AC Port-of-Spain to give some kind of write up on what is the plan to get POS to support this team. I hope they not expecting POS to just come just so and support them. We have not seen anything other than they move to POS. Any initiative to engage the support of east and west POS ?

Joseph fires Club Sando past Cunupia.
By Nigel Simon (Guardian).


Shaq­keem Joseph net­ted a hat-trick as Tiger Tanks Club San­do out­gunned Cunu­pia FC 5-3 in their First Cit­i­zens Cup Im­mortelle Group de­cider in the fea­ture match of a dou­ble-head­er at the Hase­ly Craw­ford Sta­di­um, Mu­cu­rapo on Mon­day night.

With both clubs al­ready as­sured of a semi­fi­nal spot, the bat­tle was on to avoid tour­na­ment favourites and Aber­crom­bie Group win­ner, Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers in the semi­fi­nals.

Cunu­pia start­ed bright­ly with Kevon "Show­time" Wood­ley open­ing the scor­ing in the 31st minute, but that lead on­ly last­ed un­til the 38th minute when Joseph got his first of the night to get Club San­do lev­el go­ing in­to the half-time in­ter­val.

Nine min­utes in­to the sec­ond-half Tekay Hoyce put Club San­do ahead for the first time on the night from the penal­ty spot, while Joseph then fired in a quick dou­ble in the 60th, and 67th min­utes to com­plete his tre­ble and give his team a com­mand­ing 4-1 ad­van­tage.

With 15 min­utes left to play, Keron Corn­wall all but sealed the vic­to­ry for Club at 5-1, on­ly for Xavier Ra­j­paul (85th), and Wood­ley (87th), the lat­ter with his sec­ond on the night to get Cunu­pia FC with­in two goals.

But in the end it proved too lit­tle to late as Club San­do held on for the fi­nal whis­tle to end the six-team round-robin group stage with 11 points from five match­es, and will face Aber­crom­bie Group run­ner-up Po­lice FC in the semi­fi­nal, while Cunu­pia FC who end­ed sec­ond in the group will meet Rangers' in the oth­er semi­fi­nal.

All four clubs mak­ing it to this year's semi­fi­nals have nev­er lift­ed the ti­tle, much less even made the fi­nal-four be­fore this sea­son.

Club Sando rout Cunupia FC 5-3.
By Sherdon Pierre (Newsday).


TIGER Tanks Club Sando whipped Cunupia FC 5-3 in a showdown that yielded six second half goals and an impressive hat-trick from Shaqkeem Joseph, on Monday evening, at the First Citizens Cup match held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo. The semi-final matchups were also decided as Club Sando will now face Police FC in the semi-final on Friday while, Cunupia FC will do battle against Terminix La Horquetta Rangers on the same night.

The game started in blistering pace with both teams vying for the top spot in the Immortelle Group. However, the tempo of the match was dented when referee Nickolai Nyron red carded Cunupia’s Kadeem Graham and Club Sando’s Darnell Hospedales in the18th minute for an off the ball incident.

Nevertheless, it was the team based in Central that opened the scoring in the 32nd minute through Kevon “Showtime” Woodley’s superb right-footed strike from on top the box beating a helpless goalkeeper Alexel Julien.

Seven minutes later, Club Sando were level through the unquestionable man of the match and speedy striker Shaqkeem Joseph who skipped passed Cunupia’s Dwane James and squeezed it through goalie Keston Malchan from an acute angle. Moments later, Joseph should have given his team the lead but his shot was inches wide of the far-post.

Nine minutes after the resumption, Club Sando were awarded a penalty after a tricky run from Tigana Sparks while team-mate Tekay Hoyce stepped up and slotted it to the left of the keeper Malchan for a 2-1 lead. The go-ahead goal boosted Club Sando’s confidence as they began controlling possession and dominating the game. They were rewarded for their efforts on the hour mark when Joseph gathered the ball from 40 yards out and rounded two defenders before slipping it home for the 3-1 lead. The lanky striker completed his well-deserved hat-trick in the 67th minute when he switched gears on his defender to calmly finish for the 4-1 score-line.

Substitute Keron Cornwall’s initial shot came off the post but Anthony Charles was in a perfect position for the rebound as he gathered and chipped a pass to Cornwall, who scored an open header in the 75th minute – his team’s fifth and last goal of the evening. After that goal, Club Sando seemed to have shut down much to the disgust of their coach Angus Eve as Cunupia’s Kaleb Douglas scored in the 85th and “Showtime” bagged his double two minutes later from a freekick.

In the earlier match between Defence Force and Point Fortin Civic FC wast in essence a stalemate as both teams were out of contention to qualify for the semi-final round.

For the majority of the encounter it was Defence Force controlling the ball in the first half but had nothing to show. However, in the 37th minute Army’s Hashim Arcia slipped a ball into Devorn Jorsling and he flicked it first time to Jerwyn Balthazar who then fired in a powerful, low cross that Arcia connected with his left boot, beating goalkeeper Stephon Seepersad.

Three minutes later, veteran striker and TT Pro League leading goal-scorer, Jorsling doubled the lead after volleying home a smart and accurate cross from Darius Ollivierra on the left flank. The two-nil cushion stood until half-time. In the second period, Point Fortin improved their showing especially after former youth national player Tyrell Emmanuel came on in the 55th minute.

However, Army erased any doubt in the 66th minute when winger Jelani Felix dribbled passed his defender and served up a right-footed cross that Arcia slapped unto the crossbar and rolled in for the three-goal lead. The south team, Point Fortin squandered several opportunities in the dying minutes to get on the scoresheet but the “Teteron Boys” stood their grounds to seal the consolation victory.

Rangers, Police in First Citizens Cup final

Rangers, Police in First Citizens Cup final
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian)


Un­beat­en Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers could be on their way to a first First Cit­i­zens Cup ti­tle on Fri­day when they face Po­lice FC in the fi­nal at the Diego Mar­tin Sport­ing Com­plex in Bagatelle, Diego Mar­tin.

This af­ter the team booked their place in the fi­nal on Fri­day night with a 3-0 shutout of Cunu­pia FC at the same venue.

In the sec­ond of two semi­fi­nal match­es at the Diego Mar­tin venue, Isa­iah Lee fired the La Hor­quet­ta men in­to the lead in the 37th minute, af­ter which Ja­mal Creighton (41st) and Aikim An­drews (47th) added the oth­ers to en­sure a berth in the fi­nal as Cunu­pia of­fered very lit­tle re­sis­tance.

Yes­ter­day, how­ev­er, Rangers boss Richard Fer­gu­son said feels his team will have to sharp­en up on their goal-scor­ing if they are to take the ti­tle. In fact, Fer­gu­son said he be­lieved the Law­men may have a bet­ter chance of cop­ping the ti­tle due to their sol­id de­fen­sive struc­ture and po­tent of­fen­sive abil­i­ties.

“The Po­lice team is very good. They have a very good de­fen­sive record and have been play­ing great foot­ball gen­er­al­ly. In fact, I think they would have the up­per hand in the match,” Fer­gu­son told the Sun­day Guardian.

“I think Richard Hood is al­so an ex­cel­lent coach who has been do­ing a great job with his team and he would, there­fore, want to cash in on the big prize come Fri­day.”

He added “As for my team, we have to make full use of the op­por­tu­ni­ties when they come. We have not been scor­ing the op­por­tu­ni­ties and as far as I am con­cerned, we should be scor­ing at least five goals a game be­cause we have been cre­at­ing the chances but not con­vert­ing.

“Al­though we have been win­ning, I think we need to re­turn to the train­ing pitch and work on our goal-scor­ing for this fi­nal con­test be­cause it will not be an easy one. Po­lice will be com­ing to win the game. I be­lieve we are in the right place men­tal­ly but I feel we need to be scor­ing goals, come Fri­day.”

Ear­li­er, Po­lice got a sin­gle item from the boot of Jameel Per­ry in the 28th minute to earn their pas­sage through to the match for sil­ver­ware at the ex­pense of Tiger Tanks Club San­do.

Scores:

LA HOR­QUET­TA RANGERS 3 (Isa­iah Lee 37th, Ja­mal Creighton 41st, Aikim An­drews 47th) v CUNU­PIA FC 0

PO­LICE FC 1 (Jameel Per­ry 28th) v TIGER TANKS CLUB SAN­DO 0

Based on the above, a couple things strike me:

1. Johnny Noriega Britto has moved from Morvant to Rangers

2. Glenroy Samuel was the starting GK in the final.
