TWO late items from Jahmel John and Rayhan Phillip saw Cantaro United pull off a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Patna/River Estate to go clear in the Northern Football Association (NFA) Premiership Division standings recently.
Jessie Edwards opened the scoring in the 35th minute, which seemed to have been enough to secure Patna/River Estate their third win in five matches.
However, John cancelled his effort in the 82nd minute before Phillip stole all three points for Cantaro at the stroke of full time.
That result kept Cantaro unbeaten and propelled the team to a one-point advantage over Miscellaneous Laventille United, who played to a 3-3 draw with St Francois Nationals.
