Both two-time winners San Juan
Jabloteh and Defence Force will renew
their tournament rivalry in a First
Citizens Cup qualifying play-off at
the Marvin Lee Stadium, Macoya,
from 6 pm tonight.
Fourteen years after meeting in the
final of the inaugural First Citizens Cup
in 2000, known then as the League
Cup, both will now go after a spot in
Friday s quarter-final against record
six-time winner DirecTV W Connection
at a venue to be determined.
Back in 2000---one year before the
acquisition of title sponsors First Cit-
izens---Jabloteh lifted the inaugural
crown after beating the "Teteron Boys"
1-0 and followed up in 2003 with a
win over W Connection for its second
title, while its last appearance in the
decider came in 2005, in a loss to W
Connection as well, record winners in
(2001, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and
Defence Force, meanwhile, are seven-
time finalists winning the title in 2002
and again in 2009---the debuting season
of present head coach Ross Russell.
"This (First Citizens Cup competi-
tion) is one we hold dear to us," said
Defence Force assistant coach Marvin
Gordon was a playing member of
the Defence Force team that won the
title in 2002 and debuted as assistant
coach of the professional team alongside
Russell when they won the title in 2009.
"It s a title we will go all out to win,"
Gordon said. "We are on the hard side
of the draw having to play in the play-
off for a quarter-final spot but we wel-
come it anyway."
Gordon said the Army/Coast Guard
combination also has "a number of
scores to settle against Jabloteh.
"We have a number of scores to set-
tle with Jabloteh, especially from last
season when they denied us a qualifying
spot towards the Concacaf Champions
"We also have scores to settle from
past seasons, when they were at the
top of their game and embarrassed the
Defence Force. So the 2000 title isn t
the only score to settle on our minds."
Expected to lead the attack for
Defence Force is striker Devorn Jorsling,
who is coming off a hat-trick scored
against Police FC in a 4-2 league win,
following a 1-0 win over North East
Stars to sit at the top of the league with
maximum six points.
Two points off the pace is Jabloteh
which played to a goalless draw against
Police in their first match and edged
St Ann s Ranges 1-0 in the second.
On Friday, when the tournament
continues, Central FC will kick off
defence of its title, one of two trophies
captured in the 2013/2014 season
against Pt Fortin Civic.
Last year, the "Sharks," as Central
FC are called, edged out Defence Force
2-1 in the tournament decider at the
Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.
It was the second straight finals loss
for the "Teteron Boys" who went under
by the same score to Caledonia in the
2012 final, as well as a penalty-kicks
defeat at the hand of the now defunct
Joe Public in 2010.

St Anthony s kept its chances of winning the
premier division of the BGTT/First Citizens Sec-
ondary Schools League alive, as Andrew Rullow
banged a hat-trick to lead the "Tigers" to an emphat-
ic 6-1 win over Chaguanas North, at the St Antho-
ny s College ground, Westmoorings, yesterday.
With the win, St Anthony s moved into second
place on 27 points, one point behind Naparima with
one round remaining. The match between St Antho-
ny s and Chaguanas North was carded to be played
on Saturday at St Anthony s but due to the inclement
weather the match was postponed to yesterday.
Rullow needed only two minutes to find the back
of the net giving the home team the early lead. Jules
Lee then put St Anthony s in a commanding position
with two goals (38th, 42nd) in four minutes to give
the "Tigers" a 3-0 lead at the half. Rullow added
two more in the second half and Kwesi Allen was
also on target for St Anthony s. Kazim Kellar found
the target for Chaguanas but it was the "Tigers" day,
as they romped to victory.
The final round of matches will be played tomorrow.
A win for Naparima will seal the title for the south-
erners, while St Anthony s will have to win and hope
Naparima loses for the "Tigers" to lift the crown.
St Anthony s will face bottom placed East Mucu-
rapo, while Naparima has a tougher test against sixth
placed Shiva Boys.
At Westmoorings: St Anthony's 6 (Andrew Rullow
