A goal each from Joshua Alexan­der and Ryan Jor­dan helped Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA con­tin­ue its flaw­less run in Di­vi­sion One of the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Foot­ball Tour­na­ment on Sat­ur­day.

Play­ing at Phase Two La Hor­quet­ta Recre­ation ground, the leader met Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers FC, com­ing away with a 2-0 vic­to­ry. It was the unit's eighth straight win for full 24 points to sit just ahead of clos­est chal­lenger sec­ond-placed De­fence Force with 22 points from eight match­es.

Play in the first half was bal­anced be­tween the teams as nei­ther was for­tu­nate enough to find the back of the net as the match re­mained score­less at half­time.

On the re­sump­tion, it took Mor­vant Cale­do­nia 12 min­utes to go ahead thanks to Alexan­der in the 57th minute. His team ral­lied on with that lead for much of the sec­ond ses­sion un­til Jor­dan gave his team a com­fort­able lead, scor­ing in the 78th minute to go up 2-0 which Mor­vant Cale­do­nia held on to when time ex­pired.

At Guaya Recre­ation ground, De­von Mod­este was no way in­tim­i­dat­ed by the host team scor­ing a hat-trick to lift Queen's Park Crick­et Club (QPCC) to a 3-0 vic­to­ry over Guaya Unit­ed FC.

Mod­este put his team out front with a pair of goals in the 26th and 30th minute to lead 2-1 at the half-way mark. Mid­way through the sec­ond half, he com­plet­ed his and his team's third goal to earn QPCC, its sec­ond win of the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter eight rounds of match­es.

QPCC is in the eighth spot while Guaya, who sank to its sev­enth loss, sits in 10th place in the 12-team com­pe­ti­tion.

In the lone match on Fri­day night, San Juan Jabloteh was held by FC San­ta Rosa to a 1-1 draw at the Ari­ma Velo­drome. Os­ei Sandy scored the open­er in the 63rd but thanks to Jodel Brown, Jabloteh got the equalis­er in the 75th.

In Di­vi­sion Two, the Uni­ver­si­ty of T&T (UTT) re­mains at the head of the ta­ble af­ter seal­ing its sixth win from nine match­es. Led by goals from Stevon Stoute in the eighth and Cyra­no Glen in the 31st, UTT de­feat­ed Harlem Strik­ers, 2-0 at Fred­er­ick Set­tle­ment ground in Ca­roni.
