Edwards leads Malvern to top
Peter Edwards scored on either side of the half as Malvern trounced Petrotrin 4-0 for its sixth straight win from as many matches in the T&T Hockey Board’s Veterans Division at the National Hockey Centre, Tacarigua, on Monday night.
Former national player Anthony Marcano opened the scoring for Malvern in the 17th and four minutes later David Francois, a former national player and coach, made it 2-0 before Edwards extended the lead to 3-0 in the 27th. He added another in the 50th.
The win pushed Malvern to 18 points from six matches, three more than Queen’s Park which has played a match more while Carib stayed third with 13 points after a 2-1 loss to Police on Tuesday night.
Nigel Carthy fired Police ahead in the 33rd and James Beckles made it 2-0 in the 52nd before Nigel Simon pulled a goal back for Carib, but it was not enough to earn a share of the points, in their rescheduled contest.
Last night, Malvern had a chance to extend its lead on the table when it faced Corona Fatima while today, Queen’s Park will also aim to widen its lead at the top of the Trinity Men’s standings when it faces third placed Paragon from 8 pm.
The Parkites currently lead with 24 points from nine matches on the 11-team table two more than Malvern which has played a match more, while Paragon is next with 21 points from nine matches.
