Army keeps perfect Morvant Caledonia at bay.

Vet­er­an strik­er De­vorn Jorsling was among the goals once more as De­fence Force over­came FC San­ta Rosa when match­es in the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Foot­ball Tour­na­ment Di­vi­sion One ta­ble con­tin­ued on Sun­day.

Be­fore a crowd of close to 500 spec­ta­tors, Jorsling, the T&T Pro League all-time lead­ing scor­er with 160-plus goals, capped off a dom­i­nant first-half by con­vert­ing a penal­ty kick at the Hase­ly Craw­ford Sta­di­um, Train­ing Field, Mu­cu­rapo, af­ter Jameel Coop­er was fouled in the 18-yard box.

Three min­utes in­to the sec­ond half, Jerome Mc In­tyre dou­bled the lead for the "Teteron Men" from close range while Dar­ius Ol­livier­ra ham­mered home the third item in the 75th minute be­fore Os­ei Sandy got a con­so­la­tion item for San­ta Rosa, with the 'Goal of the Match' side foot vol­ley­ing in a well-flight­ed free-kick in mid-air.

The win kept De­fence Force ahead on the 12-team ta­ble with 22 points, one ahead of Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA, who edged host Guaya Unit­ed 2-1 at Guaya Recre­ation Ground, Guaya.

Shel­don Hold­er got the open­er for Mor­vant Cale­do­nia in the 11th, but Ronald Mc In­tosh drew Guaya lev­el in the 25th, on­ly for Ker­ry Daniel to net the de­ci­sive item in the 50th minute from the penal­ty spot to hand Mor­vant Cale­do­nia a sev­enth straight win ahead of their meet­ing with Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers on Wednes­day at La Hor­quet­ta from 6 pm.

Third-placed Jabloteh stayed in the hunt cour­tesy a 3-1 de­feat of Matu­ra Re­Unit­ed at Matu­ra Recre­ation Ground to im­prove to 15 points from sev­en match­es, while Cunu­pia FC trounced Pris­ons Ser­vice 4-0 at Mal­abar to keep hold of the fourth spot, thanks to a tre­ble from Kevon "Show­time" Wood­ley to up his league-best tal­ly to nine, three more than Jorsling, and Po­lice and Queen's Park Crick­et Club drew 1-1 in the open­ing match at Mu­cu­rapo.

De­porti­vo blast Bethel be­hind Ke­sae beaver

Je­re­mi­ah Ke­sar end­ed De­porti­vo P.F two-match win­less streak in style by scor­ing a beaver trick in their come-from-be­hind 7-2 trash­ing of Bethel Unit­ed at Ma­haica Oval, Pt Fortin.

The vis­i­tors went ahead as ear­ly as the sixth minute through An­del No­ray, but Aden Noel (23rd and 42nd), and Ke­sar (37th) got replies for De­porti­vo to take a 3-1 lead at the break in front their home sup­port­ers.

No­ray again got the goal to start the sec­ond half, and cut the deficit to 2-3, but like the first half, the hosts re­spond­ed grand­ly with Akeem Red­head (69th), mak­ing it 4-2 fol­lowed by three more strikes from Ke­sar in the 70th, 75th, and 87th to up his sea­son tal­ly to nine goals, lev­el with team-mate An­drei Pacheco.

De­porti­vo is al­so lev­el at the top of the ta­ble with San Fer­nan­do Gi­ants with 19 points, but while the Pt Fortin-based club has played eight match­es, Gi­ants have played sev­en af­ter their sched­uled meet­ing with RSSR at Curepe Recre­ation Ground, did not come off.

The Uni­ver­si­ty of T&T are on­ly a point off the lead af­ter a 1-0 tri­umph against Erin FC at Erin via Che Ben­ny's 40th-minute ef­fort
