De­fence Force stayed a point clear of Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA at the top of Di­vi­sion One of the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Football Tour­na­ment with a come-from-be­hind 3-1 vic­to­ry over Po­lice FC in the sec­ond match of a dou­ble-head­er at the Lar­ry Gomes Sta­di­um, Mal­abar, yes­ter­day.

The win lift­ed the “Teteron Men” to 19 points from sev­en match­es, one ahead of Cale­do­nia AIA, who clob­bered Matu­ra Re­Unit­ed 5-1 and have a match in hand.

The law­men broke the dead­lock a minute in­to the sec­ond-half via Jameel Per­ry but Dar­ius Ol­livier­ra got De­fence Force lev­el with a de­flect­ed ef­fort 11 min­utes lat­er.

Jameel Coop­er then fired De­fence Force ahead in the 76th and two min­utes lat­er Re­on Moore sealed the vic­to­ry.

Up at Matu­ra Recre­ation Ground, Josi­ah Sylvester, Shem Clauzel, Radan­fah Abu Bakr, Lukas Ris­to and Sedale Mc Lean were all on the score­sheet for Cale­do­nia AIA be­fore Bren­don Figuera net­ted a late con­so­la­tion for the hosts.

On Fri­day night at the Ari­ma Mu­nic­i­pal Sta­di­um, FC San­ta Rosa de­feat­ed Guaya Unit­ed 3-1 with Os­ei Sandy (44th), John-Paul Rochford (49th) and Kevon Corn­wall (89th pen) find­ing the net. For Guaya Unit­ed, Akeil Paul scored in the 85th.

Last night, Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers en­ter­tained Cunu­pia FC at the La Hor­quet­ta Recre­ation Ground, while to­day, Prison FC faces Queen’s Park Crick­et Club at YTC Ground, Arou­ca and Club San­do en­ter­tain San Juan Jabloteh, both from 4 pm.

In Di­vi­sion Two mean­while, Po­lice FC end­ed the un­beat­en run of joint-lead­ers De­porti­vo P.F with a 3-2 tri­umph in the open­ing match of the dou­ble-head­er at the Lar­ry Gomes Sta­di­um.

Nicholas Roach and Don­avon Der­rick net­ted in the 13th and 29th minute re­spec­tive­ly for Po­lice to lead 2-0 at the half-time in­ter­val.

Sev­en min­utes in­to the sec­ond-half An­drei Pacheco cut the lead in half for De­porti­vo, on­ly for Mekhi Brooks to re­store Po­lice’s two-goal cush­ion in the 78th at 3-1.

With the sec­onds tick­ing away, De­porti­vo man­aged to get a sec­ond item but it was too lit­tle too late as Po­lice held on for the win to climb to 15 points from sev­en match­es, one be­hind De­porti­vo P.F and San Fer­nan­do Gi­ants, with the lat­ter set to host Bethel Unit­ed at Man­nie Ramjohn Sta­di­um from 4 pm to­day, with a chance to grab sole pos­ses­sion of top spot.

In to­day’s oth­er match, Pe­tit Val­ley/Diego Mar­tin Unit­ed en­ter­tains Erin FC at St An­tho­ny’s Col­lege Ground, West­moor­ings, from 4 pm.
