Kadeem Corbin's dou­ble and goals from Isa­iah Lee and Ja­maal Crieghton earned Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers a 4-1 win against De­fence Force on Match­day four in the First Cit­i­zen's Cup Foot­ball tour­na­ment at the Diego Mar­tin Sport­ing Com­plex on Fri­day night.

Rangers, who con­ced­ed a late goal scored by De­vorn Jorsling, have 12 points from four match­es to lead the Aber­crom­bie Group six-team stand­ings with an un­blem­ished record. De­fence Force is in fifth place, on four points.

Play in the first half was bal­anced with nei­ther sides find­ing the back of the net with the match seemed head­ing for a first-half goal­less con­clu­sion be­fore Isa­iah Lee scored the open­er in the 45th, gift­ing the La Hor­quet­ta-based team with a 1-0 lead on the stroke of the in­ter­val.

Corbin dou­bled the tal­ly, a minute in­to the sec­ond half with an item in the 46th. He was at it again some 16 min­utes lat­er re­turn­ing in the 62nd to net his sec­ond item and put Rangers fur­ther ahead, 3-0.

Crieghton joined his team­mates on the score­sheet, scor­ing Rangers' fourth and fi­nal goal in the 80th.

The army/coast­guard team grabbed a con­so­la­tion goal in the 83rd thanks to Jorsling in the sec­ond match of a dou­ble-head­er.

Ear­li­er, San Juan Jabloteh fought back from two goals down against AC Port of Spain to draw 2-2 in the Im­mortelle Group of the Cup but re­mains ahead on their six-team ta­ble with five points tied with sec­ond-placed Tiger Tanks Club San­do and third-placed Cunu­pia FC but leads on goal dif­fer­ence.

AC Port-of-Spain, which was hop­ing to earn its first win of the sea­son, went ahead when Sedale McLean opened the scor­ing in the 14th. His team­mate Kerdell Samuel then scored in the 20th to put their team up 2-0.

Jabloteh's Kendall Hit­lal (39th) pulled one back some six mu­nites be­fore half­time to make it 2-1.

On the re­sump­tion, the San Juan unit and leader of the group re­gained some com­po­sure and put pres­sure on AC Port of Spain’s back­line in the sec­ond half. It was Shakeil John, who got the equal­iz­er in the 69th.

The re­sult leaves AC Port of Spain in fourth place in the Im­mortelle Group with four points, co­in­ci­den­tal­ly from four draws from as many match­es.
