John back on target as WASA goes top

Published: 
Friday, August 8, 2014

Former national striker Stern John was back on the scoresheet for 2014 champion WASA FC, when he scored the third goal in a 4-0 win over Joe Public to send his club to the top of the TTFA National Super League standings on Wednesday.

John, who helped the club to a positive finish last season after a generally poor campaign, scored in the 57th minute. Damien Pompey and Kirth Hutchins gave WASA a 2-0 half time lead, before John and Ethan Robinson scored second half goals to put Joe Public, the 2011 treble winner and former Pro League champion to an unfamiliar place—at the foot of the standings.

WASA now leads the standings with 12 points from four wins after five matches. The club leapfrogged unbeaten Petrotrin Palo Seco in the process. Palo Seco was stunned by Bethel United in a 2-2 draw, after leading 2-0 up to the 73rd minute. Corey Cyrus scored moments before the close of the first half, before an in-form Darren Alexis doubled up for the reigning SFA champions in the 67th minute. 

The Tobago club, playing away from home, surged forward and earned a key point after goals from Vernon Wilson and Akeilon Murphy in the 73rd and 87th minutes, respectively.

Reigning champion Guaya United’s trip to Tobago’s 1976 FC Phoenix was postponed.

On Sunday, when match day six kicks off, four games will face postponement due to flight issues, while another, NLCB La Horquetta’s trip to YTC Ground, Arouca, against FC Santa Rosa, will be postponed due to the unavailability of the ground. 

The three matches to be played are: Joe Public versus Coosal’s Las Lomas United at the Marvin Lee Stadium, from 4 pm; WASA FC versus Real Maracas FC at WASA Ground, St Joseph, from 5 pm and Defence Force versus Malabar FC at Macqueripe Youth Camp, from 4 pm.
