Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh rebounded from their crushing 5-0 midweek loss to defending champions, Central FC, to climb to fourth in the 10-team Pro League standings with a 3-2 win over bottom placed St Ann’s Rangers at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar.
Jabloteh got all three goals in the first half as winger Sean Bonval and lanky striker Jamal Gay struck within the opening 15 minutes while central defender Adrian Reid made it 3-0 with a 35th minute penalty.
Rangers did make things interesting in the second half, though, as goals from Terrence Cornwall and Kadeem Hutchinson provided a tense finish. But the “San Juan Kings” held on for the result.
DIRECTV W Connection and Japs North East Stars square off from 3.30 pm tomorrow in the final game of this weekend’s Pro League fixtures.
Stars will leapfrog Jabloteh to fourth spot with a win while Connection are desperate to stay close to leaders, Defence Force, who are six points clear at present.
