Guaya back to 2nd in Super League
Two days after dropping to third in the blink/bmobile National Super League, Guaya United made its match in hand count yesterday, when it eased past Defence Force 3-1, with striker Carlon Hughes bagging a hat-trick for the winning team. Guaya made the trip to the Frederick Settlement Recreation Ground, Caroni, where it returned to the runner-up spot and within a point of league leader Club Sando. Hughes, who scored in the 12th and 82nd minute, as well as in added time, took his tally to nine goals for the season. Hughes was also on target for Guaya in its last two matches. For Defence Force, Ronald St Louis tried to mount a comeback in the late stages but his effort in the 89th minute proved futile, as the Teteron Boys slumped to their seventh loss for the season.
One other rescheduled match took place yesterday with 1976 FC Phoenix and Real Maracas playing to a 1-1 draw. Jahhan Hernandez opened for Real Maracas in the 41th, before his goal was cancelled out by Phoenix’s Dave Grimshaw in the 81st minute. The results cemented the placement in the league which determines the opening round fixtures in the knockout competition. The first round will be played on Sunday. Leader, runner-up and third-placed, Club Sando, Guaya and Malabar FC, respectively, are all on a bye and will open their account in the quarterfinals, which will be played on the following Sunday. Stokely Vale of Tobago is the defending champion and is set to defend its title, firstly against Defence Force at Plymouth Recreation Ground, from 4 pm.
This Sunday, five Round One matches will be played.
