Skakiyl Phillip scored two sec­ond-half penal­ty to cap off San Juan Jabloteh's 4-1 spank­ing of Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed in the 2019/2020 T&T Pro League at the Ato Boldon Sta­di­um Sta­di­um, Cou­va on Tues­day night.

The shock vic­to­ry lift­ed the Kei­th Jef­frey-coached Jabloteh three places up the ta­ble to fifth with 16 points from 13 match­es, ten adrift of lead­ers De­fence Force who have played 11 match­es while Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers are sec­ond with 20 points fol­lowed by Po­lice FC and Mor­vant Cale­do­nia with 19 and 18 re­spec­tive­ly.

Go­ing in­to the match on Tues­day night, the Den­sil 'Bleed­er" Theobald-coached Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed had their eyes set on go­ing sec­ond on the ta­ble with full points.

How­ev­er, in­side of three min­utes of the kick-off, the "Stal­lions" dreams were dealt a blow when Ma­lik Mieres fired Jabloteh ahead.

Jay­don Tay­lor man­aged to pull Mor­vant Cale­do­nia in the 32nd minute, but that joy was short-lived as De­lon Jag­gasar re­gained the edge for Jabloteh in the 38th minute for a 2-1 ad­van­tage at the half-time whis­tle.

Phillip then took charge for his team in the sec­ond-half cap­i­tal­is­ing on two er­rors of judge­ment from the Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed de­fend­ers to con­vert two penal­ty-at­tempts, first in the 64th minute, and then in the 89th minute.

Last night, two match­es were sched­uled with Cen­tral FC host­ing W Con­nec­tion at Cou­va from 6 pm, while Pt Fortin Civic en­ter­tains AC Port-of-Spain at Ma­haica Oval, Pt Fortin.

On Fri­day, there are three match­es sched­uled with De­fence Force fac­ing AC Port-of-Spain at Cou­va from 6 pm fol­lowed by Club San­do and Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed two hours lat­er at the same venue, while Point Fortin Civic en­ter­tains Jabloteh at Ma­haica Oval, Point Fortin from 7 pm.
