Club Sando celebrate after scoring against Central FC at Larry Gomes Stadium, Arima on Sunday, February 25th 2024.

SHACKIEL Henry’s brace solidified Club Sando’s fifth-place position after they defeated the cellar-placed Central FC 3-1 as match day 13 of the TT Premier Football League (TTPFL) Tier 1 concluded over the weekend.

Central FC struck first through a Jadel Carter penalty strike. Henry responded with his first goal in the 23rd minute and netted the game’s final item in the 58th minute. Meanwhile, Shervohnez Hamilton had helped Club Sando edge ahead 2-1 in the 26th minute.

Club Sando are currently five points ahead of the sixth-placed Prison Service, who was shut out 3-0 by Eagles FC on Saturday. Eagles’ prolific goalscorer, Haitian Angelo Exilus was on target again, opening the scoring in the game as early as the fourth minute.

Exilus’ national teammate Michel Huguens scored Eagles’ second in the 70th before Keron Cornwall sealed the deal with an insurance item in the 77th minute. The win sent Eagles over Caledonia FC in tenth spot, after the latter drew their fourth consecutive match.

Army put Police under ‘close arrest’hug

Miscellaneous Police failed to grasp the opportunity to go to the top of the standings when they lost 2-1 to the Defence Force.

National team fullback Alvin Jones scored for the lawmen, in between strikes from Isaiah Leacock and Dylon King, who netted the match winner.

The victory saw the Army/Coast Guard unit move into third, one point adrift of Police and three shy of league leaders AC Port of Spain, whose fixture against 1976 FC Phoenix last Friday was postponed. Despite taking the lead twice, Caledonia were held 2-2 by Terminix La Horquetta Rangers in the second match of Saturday’s double-header at the Arima Velodrome.

Gabriel Nanton picked up his first two goals for Caledonia, scoring in the seventh minute and first-half stoppage time.

Rangers got their first equalising goal when Caledonia veteran Carlyle Mitchell put the ball in his own net in the 15th minute, while their second came courtesy Tyrone Charles in the 68th minute.
