Pro League scores: N/East Stars down ‘Army’ to stay perfect, Jabloteh edge M’vt Caledonia

North East Stars remained just one of two clubs with a 100 percent record in the 2017 Pro League season as they downed Defence Force 2-1 tonight in a double header at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.

Winger Jomoul Francois and forward Rundell Winchester scored on either side of the half as the Stars, coached by ex-Joe Public champion coach Derek King, took their first big scalp of the season.

Trinidad and Tobago international Hashim Arcia registered the lone goal for the Army/Coast Guard combination.

In the other Couva fixture, San Juan Jabloteh picked up their second successive win as they edged Morvant Caledonia United 1-0, after an own goal by Kareem Baptiste.

W Connection remain atop the standings with three wins from as many matches with Jabloteh second with seven points. Stars, who have a game in hand against defending champions Central FC, are third with six points from their two outings to date.
