Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder Jomal Williams marked his return to the Pro League with a stoppage time goal yesterday evening, as W Connection downed St Ann’s Rangers 3-0 in a double header at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.
The result ensured that Connection started the league season on the front foot after the “Savonetta Boys” failed to advance to the final of the First Citizens Cup, which Central FC won last month. Still, Rangers might consider themselves unlucky to lose by three goals, as Connection added gloss to the score line with two second half stoppage time items.
In yesterday’s other fixture at Couva, another Soca Warriors attacker, Tyrone Charles, also got among the goals as he helped Club Sando to a 2-1 win over Police FC.
Defending champions, North East Stars, began their title defence on Saturday but their new-look squad fell 2-0 to Central FC at the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar. Versatile attacker Akim Armstrong got both goals for the “Couva Sharks.”
