TTSL: Double delight for Julien, as Prisons spank Erin FC to go fourth

EPL Properties Ltd

Prison Services FC surged to fourth place in the Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) standings yesterday, after a 4-0 win over table proppers Metal X Erin FC at the YTC grounds in Arouca.

Attacker Nathan Julien scored twice within eight minutes in the first half while Brandon Calliste had a goal apiece in either half, as Prisons brushed aside their lowly southern guests.

The three point haul took Prisons to 23 points from 13 matches—and, in the process, saw them leapfrog Guaya United and Matura ReUnited.

QPCC FC lead the pack with 30 points at present while FC Santa Rosa and Cunupia FC are second and third with 28 and 26 points respectively.

Julien’s nine league goals this season place him joint second in the TTSL’s scoring chart alongside Santa Rosa’s Kheelon Mitchell and Police FC’s Jason Boodram.
