Andre Toussaint and Atiba Charles scored first-half goals to help W Connection maintain their 10-point lead at the top of the T&T Professional Football League’s Senior Division standings.
Toussaint and Charles’s goals were good enough to lead W Connection to a 2-1 victory over defending league champions National Quarries North-East Stars on the Sangre Grande Recreation Ground yesterday.
Toussaint scored his 10th goal of the season in the 14th minute and Charles doubled the score in the 24th minute.

Trent Noel got the opening goal for Jabloteh almost on the stroke of half-time and Kerry Baptiste sealed the win five minutes before full-time for the San Juan club, Baptiste converted an 82nd minute penalty, after Jason Marcano was brought down by defender Mark Small, Jabloteh now with 26 points.
