Mor­vant Cale­do­nia AIA and Tiger Tanks Club San­do will share the lead at the top of the 2019/2020 T&T Pro League ta­ble for the two-week break for the Christ­mas hol­i­days, af­ter con­trast­ing re­sults in round one on Fri­day night.

Play­ing in the fea­ture match of a dou­ble-head­er at the Hase­ly Craw­ford Sta­di­um in Mu­cu­rapo, the “Stal­lions”, as Mor­vant Cale­do­nia are known by their ador­ing fans, edged out Po­lice FC 2-1.

Cale­do­nia took the lead as ear­ly as the sec­ond minute through Aaron Richard and on the stroke of half-time Je­vick Mac Far­lane made it 2-0 to the de­light of their team­mates.

How­ev­er, on the re­sump­tion, Po­lice clawed their way back in­to the con­test when Keon Wil­son net­ted in the 56th. But that was as close the Law­men would get to their ri­vals, as Mor­vant Cale­do­nia held on for their first win in two match­es to climb to four points and joint top of the 11-team ta­ble with Club San­do.

In the oth­er match on the night at Mu­cu­rapo, for­mer cham­pi­ons Jabloteh picked up their first points of the cam­paign in the 1-0 tri­umph over three-time Pro League cham­pi­ons Cen­tral FC, cour­tesy an 84th-minute item from for­mer na­tion­al Un­der-20 strik­er Mic­ah Lan­siquot.

Down at the Ato Boldon Sta­di­um in Cou­va, Club San­do missed out on a chance for the out­right lead at the top af­ter hav­ing their per­fect win­ning start to the sea­son halt­ed in a 1-1 draw against Cunu­pia FC.

Six min­utes in­to the sec­ond half of a close­ly fought match, Club San­do, who edged San Juan Jabloteh 1-0 in their sea­son open­er, went ahead via a strike from Shaq­keem Joseph. How­ev­er, Cunu­pia FC got the equalis­er in the 72nd minute thanks to na­tion­al beach soc­cer stand-out Kevon “Show­time” Wood­ley.

The match be­tween W Con­nec­tion FC and Point Fortin Civic FC at Cou­va was post­poned due to the un­time­ly pass­ing of Shah­don Win­ches­ter of W Con­nec­tion FC in a trag­ic ve­hic­u­lar ac­ci­dent on Thurs­day along with three of his friends. The league will re­sume on Jan­u­ary 3, 2020.
