Fomer T&T striker Teba McKnight continued his good form when  he netted a double for Caroni Samba in a 4-1 whipping of Harlem Strikers in their penultimate match of the Central Football Association Premier Division Big-Six competition on Saturday.

McKnight, scorer of a beaver-trick in his team’s 11-0 blowout of Couva Sports last Thursday got his goals in the seventh and 90th minute at Frederick Settlement Ground, Caroni. Devon Drayton (45th) and Nigel Daniel (56th) added one each a to cancel out Guyanese Carey Harris’ 43 minute item for Strikers. The win was the fourth straight from as many matches for Caroni which only need a point from its remaining fixture to claim the title.

Despite the loss, Strikers stayed second with seven points but cannot catch Caroni. Third place KC Perseverance United with six poinst from three matches is the only team which has a chance of catching Caroni, but must win its remaining two matches and hope for a Caroni loss.

In the other match carded for Saturday at Caroni, St Mary’s United won by default from Couva Sports for its first win. The Big-Six continued with a double header at Frederick Settlement Ground, Caroni last night (Monday) with KC Perseverance Utd meeting Couva Sports and Perseverance Ball Runners against St Mary’s Utd.
