Versatile Bankers Insurance Central FC attacker Jason Marcano scored his second hattrick of the season yesterday evening, as the “Couva Sharks” whipped Club Sando 4-1 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium to move seven points clear at the top of the standings.
With just three games left in the 2015/16 season, Central rookie coach Dale Saunders is just three points away from his first Pro League title. And it carries a million dollar purse.
It will be Central’s second successive league trophy too.
The Sharks had a few hiccups recently and their cup form has been erratic. Bank on Central in the league though.
The dreadlocked Marcano led the way with a 35th item and two more after the interval for a natural hattrick while attacker Kadeem Corbin got Central’s fourth, three minutes into stoppage time.
Club Sando got a consolation item from tigerish midfielder Akeem Humphrey in the 70th minute.
All eyes will be on DIRECTV W Connection and Morvant Caledonia United on Sunday, as they contest the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield final from 6 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
Central have one hand on the big trophy though.
