Freitas lifts Police past South End
Forward Sayid Freitas scored a pair of first-half goals as Police FC blanked FC South End 3–0 to avoid the cellar spot in the 2010/2011 Digicel Pro League final on Tuesday night at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella. Going into the encounter, both teams were level on six points each, however, South End had a superior goal-difference. But within 20 minutes of the contest, Police went ahead when Freitas got his first and two minutes later team captain Noel Williams made it 2–0 before Freitas added his second, and the team’s third.
The win was only the second of the season from 18 matches for the lawmen to end with nine points, three ahead of cellar-placed South End. Police will now hope to build on that win when they compete in the Toyota Classic which involved the ten clubs in the T&T Pro League and the top six in the bmobile National Super League. The Toyota Classic is set to kick off on Friday February 11 with round of 16 matches, followed by the quarterfinals on the February 15, semifinals three days later and the final on February 25. Defence Force were crowned new league champions and will be joined in the Caribbean Football Union Club Championship, by runners-up Caledonia AIA.
