Spurs, WASA claim vital Super League points

Published: 
Tuesday, January 28, 2014

A strike on the hour-mark from prolific teenaged forward Shackiel Henry doubled with a first-half effort from Andre Quashie handed Siparia Spurs a comfortable 2-0 win over Westside Superstarz to further distance the South-based club from a heated blink/bmobile National Super League relegation battle.

 

The fixture was one of three played on Sunday, together with a win for second-from-bottom and reigning champion WASA FC’s and a 2-2 draw between third-from-bottom Bethel and 1976 FC Phoenix. Bethel salvaged a late point thanks to an added-time goal from former T&T defender Makan Hislop.

 

Spurs’ win kept it four points ahead of the three-team relegation zone. WASA, meanwhile, claimed a 2-0 win over rock-bottom FC Santa Rosa, via late goals from Jabari Raphael (79th) and veteran striker and former T&T standout Gary Glasgow (89th). The victory was WASA’s second in succession, in what appears to be a last grasp at survival with few matches remaining in this season’s competition.

 

On Friday, Guaya United completed the double over former long-standing league leader Club Sando, with a 2-1 win. Guaya, with two matches in hand, will have the opportunity to win the league outright if it can take maximum points from the next seven matches.

 

Malabar FC, which leads the standings on goal-difference over Club Sando, was on a bye for the weekend.

 

At the conclusion of the league, three teams will be relegated while two will be promoted from the Champions of Champions Super League qualification tournament.
