W Connection survives Petrotrin drilling.
By: Nigel Simon (Guardian).

Gefferson Goulart and Earl Jean scored within three minutes of each other for VIBE CT 105 W Connection to survive a serious drilling from United Petrotrin and share the points,in a 2-2 draw in a Round 17 match of the T&T Professional Football League Senior Division yesterday.
With the First Citizens Bank Cup final against CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh scheduled for Friday, Petrotrin was expected to make a few changes to its regular starting line-up for the match at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva.
However the ‘Oilmen’ kept the first line squad who made a lot of running and took a 1-0 lead into the half, on a 45th minute goal from Jamal Ayers.
Seven minutes into the second-half, former Jabloteh striker Jerol Forbes extended Petrotrin’s lead to 2-0. W Connection, who up to that point had created only a few chances, mounted a quick counter with strikes in the 61st and 64th minute. First, Brazilian Gefferson Goulart reduced the score with his 13th goal of the season and team captain Earl Jean drew his team level four minutes later.
Just before the final whistle by referee Julian Drayton, Petrotrin goalkeeper Perry Martin was involved in a serious collision with W Connection defender Atiba Charles, which delayed the end by five minutes. However, the score remained the same. W Connection took its point tally to 40 from 14 matches, 13 ahead of Jabloteh.

Draw at Hasely Crawford

Jabloteh needed a strike from Josh Johnson to earn a 1-1 draw with Defence Force at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo. Kevon Carter put the “Tetron Boys” ahead in the 23rd minute against a Jabloteh team not playing to its usual level, before Josh Johnson tied the scores in the 37th minute.

Late start

At the Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar, the match between Caledonia AIA Fire and Tobago United got off to a late start after both teams showed up with white uniforms. Tobago was ahead 2-1 at press-time.

Yesterday’s PFL Senior Division results:

DEFENCE FORCE 1 (Kevon Carter 23rd) vs SAN JUAN JABLOTEH 1 (Josh Johnson 37th).

UNITED PETROTRIN 2 (Jamal Ayers 45th, Jerol Forbes 52nd) vs W CONNECTION 2 (Gefferson Goulart 61st, Earl Jean 64th).
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
