Soul City kept its unbeaten run
going, nabbing two victories last
week, to remain in charge of the
First Division in the Lystra Lewis
Port-of-Spain Netball League at
the Jean Pierre Complex in Mu-
On Thursday, led by professional
netballer Kalifa McCollin, the Soul
City completed an easy 55-24 win
over the Police X team on court one.
McCollin, who recently returned
from competing with the University
of T&T (UTT) at the Netball Super
Club Tournament in New Zealand
where the local team placed sixth,
netted 38 goals from 41 attempts.
The national goal-attack partnered
with Indra Anderson initially and her
goal-shooter added four of six be-
fore she was replaced by youngster
Kernisha Greenidge, who slotted in
13 in 17 tries.
Soul City dominated each quar-
ter leading 15-11 in the first, 26-13 at
the half and 41-19 in the third before
sealing the 31-goal victory.
Kaysha Duncan (14/27) and Jeselle
Navarro (10/13) were the shooters for
the Police team.
The day before, Defence Force put
up good opposition against the Soul
City unit but the latter managed to
pull off a nine-goal (49-40) win.
Again McCollin starred for her
team in the shooting circle, produc-
ing 36 from 38 attempts. Greenidge
netted 11 in 17 and Anderson con-
nected two of five in the win.
Karlene Sylvester and Anastascia
Wilson combined to score the bulk
of the army/coastguard combination
team, with both netting 19 each from
21 and 23 tries, respectively.
Also on Thursday, Cardinals edged
Laventille United, 38-35, Chips de-
feated Defence Force Y by five (37-
32) goals and Horizon won the other

MIC-IT St Ann’s Rangers moved
to the top of the food chain in the
Pro League last night in Couva af-
ter handing three-time reigning
champions Central Sharks their
first defeat of this season with a
1-0 score in the first game of the
double-header at the Ato Boldon
Josh Toussaint’s second-half strike
coincidently earned Rangers their first
ever win over Central, and first win
of the season, to move two spots off
the bottom but level on four points
with ninth-placed Defence Force, who
was to take on seventh-placed Mor-
vant Caledonia United yesterday at
the Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar.
W Connection (13 points), leaders
only by goal difference, in the feature
match of the night, allowed a two-goal
lead to slip late and had to settle for a
point in a 2-2 draw with second-po-
sitioned North East Stars, who have
a game in hand against Central FC.
Neil Benjamin Jr fired Connection
ahead after one minute and 23 seconds
before setting up another, scored by
Marcus Joseph six minutes from the
half to cushion Savonetta Boys before
However, Jameel Neptune and Kor-
dell Samuel, both pre-season signings
from Morvant Caledonia, fired back
late for North East Stars in the top-
of-the-table clash to secure a point.
Stars had fallen behind before
fans had settled back into their seats
following Rangers’ shock win over
Benjamin, with an untidy finish,
lifted the ball over North East Stars
goalkeeper Akel Clarke when he met
a low Kurt Frederick cross from the
left with less than two minutes played.
Benjamin then failed to double his
tally and that of his team on 24 min-
utes when he failed to make contact
at the back post to another low cross
from left—this time Suriname inter-
national Dimitri Apai, the provider.
But in a play started by Marcus
Joseph and ended by the forward’s
head, Connection were two goals in
front. Joseph initiated the attack with
a brilliant pass to Benjamin, who raced
past three yellow shirts with ease be-
fore feeding a cross towards the back
post for Joseph to head past Clarke on
Benjamin was, however, replaced
injured soon after the restart and Con-
nection were made to pay late despite
the late inclusion of forwards Isaiah
Hudson and Jamal Charles.
Neptune capitalised on a parry
by goalkeeper Julani Archibald nine
minutes from time by sending an early
strike into the Connection net, slicing
the Savonetta Boys’ advantage in half.
The visitors, however, should have
had the ball in the back of the Con-
nection net as early as 36 minutes but
veteran forward Kerry Baptiste spilled
wide on a perfect Akeem Garcia cross.
Then in the first of four added-on
minutes, Leston Paul launched a free
kick into the area and Samuel with
a glancing header put the ball past
Archibald and into the Connection
net for a 2-2 finish.
Elsewhere on Friday night Point
Fortin Civic held Police FC goalless
at the Mahaica Oval.
