Kevon Corn­wall scored with two min­utes left in reg­u­la­tion time to earn FC San­ta Rosa a come-from-be­hind 2-1 win over de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Guaya Unit­ed in the T&T Su­per League on Sat­ur­day.

Joseph Brown had the home crowd at Guaya Recre­ation Ground in a fren­zy when he fired in the go-ahead item in the 25th minute.

How­ev­er, that joy was short-lived as Kishun Seecha­ran drew San­ta Rosa lev­el three min­utes lat­er to send both teams in at the half-time in­ter­val lev­elled at 1-1.

The sec­ond-half was just as in­tense as the first 45 min­utes and with the match seem­ing­ly head­ing for a draw, Corn­wall con­jured up the win­ner for the vis­i­tors to si­lence the home crowd.

The win lift­ed San­ta Rosa to 37 points from 16 match­es, three ahead of Queen's Park Crick­et Club which played yes­ter­day while Guaya re­mained fifth with 26 points.

Al­so on Sat­ur­day, Club San­do Cul­tur­al Roots Unit­ed moved clos­er to safe­ty with a 3-0 de­feat of the Uni­ver­si­ty of T&T at Dibe Recre­ation Ground, Long Cir­cu­lar, St James.

The trio of Du­ran Fe­li­cian, Ja­mal Burke and Ka­iron Joseph (penal­ty) were all on tar­get for the win­ners, now ninth with 15 points, one more than UTT.
