Pro League results: W Connection whip Morvant Caledonia; Club Sando edge Police FC

DIRECTV W Connection maintained their impressive Pro League form this evening with a 3-1 win over Morvant Caledonia United, as the top flight competition made its first appearance at the Naparima College school ground on Lewis Street, San Fernando.

Connection got all three goals in the first half courtesy of playmaker Andre Toussaint and midfielders Hughtun Hector and Briel Thomas to move—at least temporarily—to the top of the league on goal difference.

Defending champions, Central FC, will be favoured to reclaim their pole position tomorrow when they face Point Fortin Civic from 6.30pm at the Mahaica Oval in the second match of a Point Fortin double header. Ma Pau Stars tackle Defence Force from 4pm at the same venue.

For Morvant Caledonia, who got a late consolation goal from defender Seon Thomas, their San Fernando result meant a sixth successive league outing without a win. The “Eastern Stallions” are seventh on the ten-team standings tonight and could slip further if Defence Force win tomorrow.

In today’s other Pro League result, Club Sando enjoyed a happy San Fernando debut in the top flight as they edged Police FC, thanks to a second half winner by former Trinidad and Tobago National Under-20 midfielder Akeem Humphrey.

Sando had struck first in the contest through midfielder Kevon Piper, only for Police defender Dexter Alleyne to level scores just before the interval.

The win saw Sando climb two places to sixth while Police slid one spot to eighth.

    If they sacrificing field quality for crowd support, at least find good fields to play on, not uneven surfaces that holds pools of water

  3. Kirwin Weston it is because nobody is going to the stadiums to watch no football eh, a matter of fact before the stadiums were built eh, where did the games played eh, not in the communities to always get the real crowd supporters eh Them really good yes.
