DIRECTV W Connection attacker Jomal Williams stretched his scoring run to three successive matches tonight as the “Savonetta Boys” edged Play Whe San Juan Jabloteh 2-1 to climb to second place in the 2015/16 Pro League standings.
Connection are now level on points with leaders Defence Force and one point ahead of defending champions, Bankers Insurance Central FC, although the latter two clubs both have a game in hand.
Defence Force tackle North East Stars from 3.30 pm on Sunday at the Larry Gomes Stadium while Central host Morvant Caledonia United from 4 pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
Williams opened the scoring tonight with a 16th minute strike and, although Jamaican playmaker Fabian Reid mustered a first half equaliser for Jabloteh, veteran Andre Toussaint came up with a 66th minute winner as Connection continued their title chase.
There were loads of goalmouth action in the opening affair of tonight’s Couva double header as Police FC blew away Club Sando to rise to fifth in the standings.
The Pro League’s leading scorer, Makesi Lewis, notched his 14th goal of the league campaign from the penalty spot while Kadeem Riley and Kareem Freitas chipped in a goal apiece, as Police cruised to a three goal advantage by the break.
And captain Todd Ryan banged in a late double for the “Lawmen”, who had lost their last three outings to Jabloteh, Defence Force and Central respectively.
Pro League action continues tomorrow as bottom placed St Ann’s Rangers travel to face second from bottom Point Fortin Civic at the Mahaica Oval from 5 pm.
