TTSL round-up: Woodley steers Cunupia to PVDMU rout; Yohance winner takes QPCC past RSSR

Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) leading scorer Kevon “Showtime” Woodley grabbed two more items today, as second placed Cunupia FC routed second from bottom, Petit Valley Diego Martin United, 4-0 at the St Anthony’s College school ground in Westmoorings.

And, in today’s other outing, Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC) reclaimed third place after a late item from ex-Soca Warriors defender Yohance Marshall helped them to a 1-0 win over ninth placed RSSR FC at the St Mary’s College ground in St Clair.

Only goal difference separates the TTSL’s top three teams, who all have 24 points. And Cunupia narrowed the goal differential ever so slightly with a comprehensive win.

In the process, Woodley stretched his own lead in the scoring charts, as he now has 12 goals this season—three more than Police FC forward Jason Boodram and five more than joint third placed poachers Kheelon Mitchell (FC Santa Rosa) and Akeilon Murphy (Bethel United).

Santa Rosa are ahead in the TTSL standings, though, with a plus-19 goal difference to go with their 24 points, while Cunupia and QPCC have plus-17 and plus-11 differentials respectively.

Next Saturday, Santa Rosa play away to table proppers, San Fernando Giants, while QPCC travel to meet Metal X Erin FC. Cunupia host mid-table Prisons FC at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar on Sunday.
