ANDRE TOUSSAINT fired in three second-half goals to inspire VIBE CT 105 W Connection to a 7-0 romp over Tobago United for win number six in as many matches in the T&T Professional Football League’s Senior Division at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva yesterday.
Toussaint scored in the 56th, 81st (penalty) and 86th minutes to join clubmate Gefferson Goulart as the league’s top scorer with seven goals each.
St Lucian Earl Jean, the team’s captain added a pair of his own, in the fourth and 59th minutes while midfielder Brenton De Leon (51st minute) and Goulart (85th) were the other scorers for the “Savonetta Boys” who now have maximum 18 points.
The win also equalled the club’s best league start of 1999 —its first year as a professional club.
Caledonia AIA/Fire stayed second on the table with 10 points—thanks to a goal each from Devon Modeste, his third of the season, and Kevin Baptiste to beat United Petrotrin 2-0.
Champion side National Quarries North-East Stars revived its ambitions for a second straight title with a 2-1 win over struggling CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh on the Sangre Grande Recreation Ground in the day’s other match.
Anton Wolffe got both goals for “Stars “in the first-half, after Jabloteh defender Ansil Elcock had given his team the lead.
