Caledonia clobbers T&TEC to top Pro League

EPL Properties Ltd

Neal & Massy Caledonia AIA underlined its fine current form with a 6-0 clobbering of T&TEC FC in Digicel Pro League action this evening at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva.

The self-declared “Eastern Stallions” have now scored 10 goals from its last two matches. Playmaker Ataullah Guerra has four of those items after his hattrick today. He is the third player to grab a hattrick in the 2012/13 season after T&TEC’s Bevon Bass and Defence Force’s Josimar Belgrave.

Caledonia and T&TEC met once already this season as the former outfit won 2-0 en route to success in last month’s First Citizens Cup. Caledonia fielded an under-strength team in that Cup outing.

Tonight, the Morvant/Laventille-based outfit showed just how devastating its first team can be.

The rejuvenated Conrod Smith opened the scoring after 25 minutes and Guerra doubled Caledonia’s advantage, three minutes before the interval. But the floodgates opened the second half as Guerra scored two more while Keyon Edwards and a Kareem Joseph penalty completed the rout.

Caledonia is now tied atop the Pro League standings with Defence Force but the Stallions enjoy a better goal difference.

Earlier this evening at the same venue, Central FC surrendered its 100 percent Pro League record after a 3-2 loss to St Ann’s Rangers.

The Rangers team led 3-0 at one point before a late Hayden Tinto double provided a scare. But coach Dean Pacheco’s men held off Central to leapfrog T&TEC at the foot of the table.

Central, which is coached by Englishman Graham Rix, trailed after just seven minutes following an early Devon Modeste strike. Modeste grabbed his second in the 72nd minute while Jason Marcano chipped in with an item in the 32nd minute.

Each goal was ultimately important as Tinto notched a late double in the 74th and 90th minutes.
