While De­fence Force were left idle on Match Day Five, Ter­minix La Horquat­ta Rangers used the op­por­tu­ni­ty to cut in­to the ti­tle chal­lengers’ lead with a 2-0 vic­to­ry over San Juan Jabloteh.

Rangers’ ef­fort came in the the first match of a dou­ble-head­er in the T&T Pro League as com­pe­ti­tion re­sumed af­ter the Car­ni­val break at the Ato Boldon Sta­di­um in Bal­main, Cou­va, on Fri­day night.

Af­ter a goal­less first half, Rangers Ty­rone Charles scored in the 59th and 66th min­utes to guide his team to vic­to­ry and 26 points, six be­hind the Army/Coast Guard com­bi­na­tion unit.

In the fea­ture match-up of the night, Mor­vant Cale­do­nia Unit­ed main­tained their fifth-place po­si­tion on the 11-team stand­ings af­ter a 3-1 tri­umph over Cunu­pia FC thanks to goals from Tev Lawrence, Per­nell Schultz and Shel­don Hold­er in the 12th, 20th and 68th min­utes of the con­test.

Cunu­pia FC’s on­ly item came from the in­form Kevon “Show­time” Wood­ley, who re­duced his team’s half­time deficit by one with his strike in the 32nd minute.

How­ev­er, the match of the round was the con­test be­tween hosts Point Fortin and Po­lice at Ma­haica Oval, in which the vis­i­tors ex­pe­ri­enced their fourth loss of the sea­son when Tyrel Em­manuel se­cured all three points in the 53rd minute to the de­light of cheer­ing home fans. De­spite the un­favourable re­sult for Po­lice, both teams main­tained their third and sixth po­si­tions on the stand­ings, re­spec­tive­ly.
