W Connection and San Jan Jabloteh maintained their fine form last night as the Pro League’s top four clubs for the 2018 season clashed at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.
Connection are the only outfit with a 100 percent record this term and they preserved that mark with a 2-1 comeback result against Defence Force. Brent Sam put the Army/Coast Guard combination ahead in the 14th minute but Marcus “Lobo” Joseph equalised in first half stoppage time.
Joseph’s item was his seventh of the season—a league high mark—and meant he continued his impressive record of a goal in each round. His strike partner, Kadeem Corbin, got the game winner though for his third league item in 2018, as the “Savonetta Boys” remained two points clear at the top of the 10-team standings.
Jabloteh remain within touching distance of the summit and they were momentarily ahead yesterday after a 1-0 win over Club Sando. Lively journeyman winger Jomoul Francois, a Pro League champion last season with North East Stars, got Jabloteh’s lone item with his fourth goal this term.
Francois has scored at least once in each of his last three appearances for Jabloteh.
Defence Force and Club Sando are third and fourth respectively.
