Defending blink/bmobile National Super League champion, WASA FC, claimed its first win on the pitch for the season with only six fixtures remaining, when an own goal moments from full-time awarded the Waterboys a 3-2 win over Real Maracas, on Sunday.
WASA’s win was its first of the campaign, apart from a default victory earlier this season. The fixture was played simultaneously with league leader Club Sando’s 4-1 win over Tobago’s 1976 FC Phoenix, and runner-up Malabar FC’s 5-1 triumph over Westside Superstarz.
In WASA’s FC’s must needed win, following two early goals from Dwight Crichlow (10th) and Fabian Garcia (23rd), the reigning league champion enjoyed a positive 2-0 lead in the first half, before Dillon Bartholomew counted a comeback for Maracas, which was completed by a goal from teammate Jahhan Hernandez, a former WASA FC forward who scored the equalizing goal in the 77th minute. The match seemed to be heading for a draw, but for an own goal in the 88th minute, which saw WASA lift itself off the foot of the table into 12th in the 13-team standings.
FC Santa Rosa, which returned to the bottom of the table, suffered a 1-0 loss to Bethel United concurrently.
