Play Ascension Rd 3 (Video): Wired868 looks at upcoming fixtures and reviews Round Three

Can anyone stop Defence Force? The Army/Coast Guard combination roll into Serpentine Road from 4pm on Sunday to face QPCC FC and the ‘Parkites’ have a real fight on their hands if they are to get anything out of the Ascension Invitational fixture.

Pro League heavyweights, Defence Force, are yet to drop a point or concede a goal after three matches while QPCC drew their opening two matches against fellow TTSL clubs.

Veteran striker Devorn Jorsling has a goal in each round so far although the Parkites would be buoyed by a double from former National Under-20 forward Ricardo John in their last outing.

There’s plenty at stake at the San Juan Secondary ground too where TTSL club Cunupia FC, fresh from their win over top tier team Club Sando last weekend, look for a second straight triumph against Pro League opposition in the form of San Juan Jabloteh. Kick off is also 4pm.

Police FC open Round Four against Matura ReUnited at the Police Academy in St James from 4pm on Saturday. The ‘Lawmen’ lost both of their opening two fixtures while Matura have one point from three matches.


And in Division Two, freescoring Deportivo PF travel to the Guapo Recreation Ground to tackle Club Sando Uprising Youths from 6.30pm in a southern debt that sees Deportivo’s Garcia brothers—Nathaniel and Judah—pitted against Uprising talent like Jabari Mitchell and Seon Shippley.

See below for last weekend’s results and upcoming fixtures as well as highlights and analysis from Terry Fenwick and Vidia Ramphal.
