Pro League results: Nathan scores on return but Rangers hold Jabloteh to go fourth

St Ann’s Rangers climbed one spot to fourth place this afternoon after a 1-1 draw with San Juan Jabloteh at the Barataria Recreation Ground.

Jabloteh, on the other hand, dropped one place to third behind W Connection on goal differential.

Winger Nathan Lewis—who was arguably the Pro League’s outstanding player in the 2015/16 season—made an encouraging return from injury this afternoon, as he opened the scoring for Jabloteh after just one minute. But Jabloteh failed to add to their advantage and were forced to share the spoils when forward Dylon King equalised for Rangers in the 68th minute.

Connection and Jabloteh now have 16 points each while Rangers have 11 and Ma Pau Stars are fifth with 10. Defending champions Central FC continue to set the pace, though, as a Kenwyne Jones double helped them to a 4-1 win over Point Fortin Civic yesterday at the Mahaica Oval in Point Fortin.

Central lead the league with 19 points.

  1. Spanish teams? Yuh drunk so early these days? Lol

  2. hahahahahaha Of course Mr. Bound not to score suppose to always score in our domestic league eh, how many goals did Central . F. C. got from the MLS teams and Spanish teams in the Concacaf Championship eh, and look at the team that he scored the goals against eh, Civic Center that is getting plenty licks in the league this season eh, look Alyuh don’t start me this early morning eh. Them really good yes.

  3. LOL. You ain’t wrong Travis!

  4. Lass is the only professional sports journalist in our country, all the rest don’t care to cover local football ,just the manner they write tells you ,its like a child hurrying to finish his chores to go play Xbox

  5. I agree Lasana. I guess my point is that domestic form is an indicator to the coach of what can be achieved. We all know that many players can’t make the step up but I don’t think we can argue that case with KJ. I think service is the key to his game. And if we can’t supply him with service then play him in a different role or just drop him. You can’t deny a man the tools for the job and then complain!

  6. I won’t say it is debatable whether the Pro League is below international standard, Kevin. I’d say that’s a given.
    But still good that he can score wherever.

  7. Such a shame that no journalist covered the Central game on Saturday. Everyone criticizing Kenwyne jones yet he’s scoring in every game for Central. Actually scored a hat trick, but the linesman was way behind play and decided ball hadn’t crossed the line. Smh. It just shows that with good service, he will score. Of course, it could be argued that it’s easier in the pro league than in an international. But then I see men calling names of pro league players all the time so the same standards must apply, right?

  8. oh gosh have ah little faith nah man my Coach Hart will be turning things around the same way when he started eh, just watch and see, we are heading to Russia in 2018 eh. but he have to start with yuh boy Levi Garcia and Plaza eh.

  9. Hoping that Keron Ballpest Cummings can really ketch back his length the same eh, and along with my prolific/playmaker/ goal scorer Mollino our Soca Worries will finally qualified for another World Cup in 2018 eh. Them really good yes.

  10. Nathan catch back his length already…well done

  11. I don’t know why my prolific goal scorer Willis Plaza was’t given the penalty nah, and the kicker a defender missed it yes, but the fella from St Ann’s Rangers scored a beauty of a free kick over the wall in the left corner and the keeper thought that he was going to kick it to his right eh, did he get fooled Them really good yes, hahahaha

  12. Disappointed with this result. Victory here was expected.
