Two minutes after the restart, Kheelon Mitchell made it 3-0 before Stewart completed his double in the 56th followed by a 92nd-minute strike from Giovanni Abraham to complete the one-sided contest to climb to the fourth spot with 12 points from seven matches, four adrift of leaders Queen’s Park Cricket Club who were in action yesterday.

Up at the University of T&T Ground, O’Meara Road, Arima, Andre Mohammed netted two quick second-half items to earn visitors, Prison Service a 3-2 triumph over UTT.

In-form Nathan Julien handed Prison Service a 1-0 lead at the half thanks to his 40th-minute strike. However, two minutes into the second-half, national futsal player Cyrano Glenn drew UTT level, only for Mohammed to hammer home goals in the 61st and 63rd minute to give his team a 3-1 cushion.

With five minutes left, Shaquille Nesbitt converted a penalty for UTT, but Prison managed to hold on for the valuable three points to move to fifth with ten.

Queen’s Park extend Super League lead.
By Andrew Gioannetti (Newsday).


QUEEN’S Park extended their lead at the top of the 2018 TT Super League standings by five points yesterday after a scrappy 2-1 win over fellow title contenders Cunupia FC, at St Mary’s College Grounds, St Clair.

The top-of-the-table clash saw the two teams maintain their positions, while FC Santa Rosa made up considerable ground in fourth place with a shock 5-0 win over Matura Reunited on Saturday.

Keston George scored QP’s winner in the 61st minute, just moments after Kevaughn John netted their equaliser against the run of play.

Queen’s Park looked lethargic and failed to test Cunupia’s shot-stopper in the first half.

Cunupia meanwhile were unlucky not to take a point from the match as attackers Kevon Woodley, Michael Darko and company had QPCC on the back foot for extended spells.

Queen’s Park struggled in midfield without Sean De Silva, their leading scorer, and Elton John.

The home team took several speculative shots in the first half, while Cunupia looked more cohesive and organised. The second half began with more energy and coach Shawn Cooper’s Queen’s Park finally came close to scoring an opener in the 47th minute when Kern Gardiner made a burst of speed on the right flank and put in an pinpoint cross to George, who patiently controlled the ball and took a clean shot only to be denied by Cunupia goalkeeper Keston Aberdeen.

The match sprung into life but with Cunupia taking first blood in the 56th though Keron Clarke, who only just came off the bench. The “super sub” as the fans called out to him, received a cross from the right which was dummied by two players before he rifled into the left corner with precision.

That lead lasted all of two minutes. Queen’s Park were awarded a free kick in their half, taken by substitute Trevon Mitchell, whose lofted ball connected with Yohance Marshall’s head and back into the path of John right in front of the goal.

After desperate attempts at crawling back into the game, Cunupia were unable to take anything away and Marshall’s defence stood firm.

Cunupia were left delayed while QPCC would celebrate a win, by any means, to take the club closer to the Championship crown.

Reigning champions Guaya, which started the season poorly, continued their upward momentum with a 3-1 win over Police Service.

In the other match, Densyl James scored a massive equaliser in time added on to complete his hat-trick for RSSR FC in a 3-3 draw against winless Bethel United of Tobago. League action will continue on match day eight on Saturday.
