Club Sando whipped hosts Terminix La Horquetta Rangers 4-0 in the Under-17 division and Central FC held San Juan Jabloteh to a 1-1 draw in the same division draw when the Youth Pro League 2019 season rolled out on Sunday.

Daniel Lake (3’), Nasean Duncan (18’), Nirvan Ramnarine (20’), from the penalty spot, and Darius Douglas (90’+2) netted a goal each for the Angus Eve-coached Sando U17s at the Larry Gomes Stadium, exacting revenge for their U15 side coached by another ex-Trinidad and Tobago standout Cornell Glenn.

Sando U15s were earlier edged 2-1 by La Horquetta Rangers after taking the lead through Davison Ramnath (42’). Rangers however overturned the deficit with an equaliser from Emmanuel Hunte (62’) then the game’s winner through Isaiah Raymond (80’) to snatch full points.

It was a positive turnaround for Rangers after their U13 outfit allowed a two-goal cushion — first-half goals by Tarique Abdulla (28’) and Ky-Mani Anthony (34’) — to slip and Sando snatching a point in the process with a 2-2 draw courtesy second-half strikes by Khaleem Warrick (48’), Cristian Weeks (51’).

Elsewhere, Jabloteh led by a double from Lindell Sween kicked off their campaign with a 3-0 win over hosts Central at Edinburgh 500 ground in the U13 division and won by default in the U15 division.

But youth powerhouse Jabloteh were stunned late by the “Couva Sharks”, represented by Crown Trace, and had to settle for a point after a hard-fought 1-1 draw in the U17 division.

Central U17s were lucky not to fall behind after just three minutes thanks to goalkeeper Michael Francis matching Jerry Morris’ kick from the spot. The Central ‘keeper redeemed himself after tripping the giant-sized Jabloteh front man Morris in the box.

It was not until 70 minutes of play later that Morris—who had the game’s bulk of chances—redeemed himself by picking out Terrell Wiley in the Central box and the diminutive attacking midfielder made no mistake in beating Francis from close up to give Jabloteh a 1-0 lead.

That lead was however cancelled out by Nkosi Rosales who celebrated the final touch in putting the ball over goalkeeper Dillon King’s line to level the score 1-1 seven minutes from time.

Jabloteh had self-destruct late when defenders Randy Antoine and Khalil Oliver failed to clear the ball and Central’s perseverance paid off to the satisfaction of the home supporters. King, who had produced a save in the melee, was given his marching with a direct red card for dissent in protest of the goal.

It was an untidy end for Jabloteh after kicking off the day with Sween, the recently named Atlantic YES male Champion Athlete of the Year, scoring on either side of the break to inspire Keith Jeffrey’s side over a determined and talented Central FC U13 bunch represented by Pro Series.

Sween put Jabloteh U13s ahead by completing a strong solo run into the Central box with a left footed strike into the roof of goalkeeper Shemuel Cassimy’s net on 35 minutes.

Sween later held off his marker four minutes into the second half to slap home another left footed strike to cushion Jabloteh 2-0.

Sween was inches wide of a third moments after he was involved in another Jabloteh attack which saw Myckiah Haywood trouble the side netting with the ‘keeper at his mercy after being put through by Jahmarley Caleb.

Haywood redeemed himself in the 63rd minute to seal the 3-0 Jabloteh U13 victory with a header past Cassimy off a cross by D’journe Jules.

Other results saw Police FC and Point Fortin Civic take full points in all three divisions by default over Defence Force FC and North East Stars respectively.

W Connection took three points by default over Morvant Caledonia United in the U13 division but were defeated 2-0 in the U15 division by the visitors at Union Ground in St. Margaret’s before a double from Jabari Lee and a goal from Cephas St. Rose earned the “Savonetta Boys”’ U17s a 3-0 win over the “Eastern Stallions”.

Next Sunday, Jabloteh will host rivals W Connection at San Juan North Secondary and Central will visit La Horquetta Rangers while Sando are away to Police FC.
