Point Fortin ends Connection's unbeaten run.

Point Fortin ends Connection's unbeaten run.
ttproleague.com.


Point Fortin Civic gave home fans something to cheer on Saturday when the Reynold Carrington coached side bounced back from a goal down to defeat rivals and Digicel Pro League leaders 2-1 at the Mahaica Oval.

Journeyed attacker and Point Fortin debutant Sean Cooper popped up off the bench in the second period to net the winner, to become an instant hero, surely not only to his new supporters, but to all clubs that failed to stop Connection this season.

Connection, undefeated in the league before kickoff after 12 matches this season, grabbed an early 1-0 lead following a smooth build-up when striker Hashim Arcia slammed a low strike past goalkeeper Aquelius Sylvester in just the eight minute.

But after Sylvester was adjudged to have fouled Marcus Joseph inside the area, Point Fortin levelled the score, 1-1, by the 16th minute from the penalty mark with a strike converted by Andre Toussaint.

The home side then took the 2-1 lead and eventual winner in the 72nd minute substitute Cooper headed a cross past Sylvester. The 31-year-old journeyed Cooper announcing his return to Trinidad in style.

Cooper, a former Trinidad and Tobago youth player, is a former Portugal based player and had stints in Trinidad with Joe Public, North East Stars and Tobago United, before representing Surinamese clubs Transvaal and Walking Boys Company (WBC).

Kariym Balthazar, the 25-year-old stepson of Carrington, also made his debut on Saturday in a win that pushed Point Fortin (20 points) two points ahead of Police.

However Connection (32 points), despite experiencing an end to their magnificent run, are 12 points ahead and still favoured to win the league title.

To be fair Frederick is the only St. Lucian who played - there were two Kittsians if you want to be pedantic :p

That kinda makes you look bad man - they play 9 Trinis, and have a core team of Trinis, and you're wishing them ill-will. Literally half the Trini national team played for W Connection at some point in their career - they're clearly adding more to Trini football than a number of other teams in the country.
