Guaya United and Defence Force maintained their perfect 2017 Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) records on Sunday with wins over Police FC and UTT respectively.
Talismanic forward Carlon “Judgment” Hughes and ex-North East Stars captain and defender Glenton Wolffe both notched their third goals of the season as Guaya roared to life in the second half to win 3-1 despite Police opening the score summer through Kenwin Matthew.
And Defence Force also did the business in the second half as a goal plus a late strike from utility player Michael Edwards saw off UTT 2-0.
FC Santa Rosa will have to wait for their chance of a third successive win as their match against QPCC did not play due to “improper marking of the field” at the St Mary’s College ground on Serpentine Road.
The TTSL executive is expected to rule on that affair shortly.
Elsewhere, the TTSL League Two also kicked off on Saturday with an emphatic showing from Prisons FC as winger Ricardo Alleyne notched a natural hattrick in a 4-1 win over Marabella Family Crisis Centre.
Shiva Boys Hindu College schoolboy Junior Asson got the consolation item for Marabella.
