John shoots Stars six points clear
North East Stars pulled six points clear at the top
of the Pro League standings on Friday night after
they edged second place W Connection 1 0 to set
the stage for new champions this season with
three-time holders Central FC seventh and just 13
points from 12 of the 18 games contested so far this
Elton John's ine chip from the edge of the box
to beat an advancing W Connection goalkeeper
Julani Archibald after just three minutes eventu-
ally snapped the visitors ten-game undefeated
run in all competitions and earned the hosts max-
imum points at the Arima Velodrome to maintain
Derek King side's one-hundred per cent unbeaten
record, with six wins and one draw at the home
North East Stars (33 points), chasing a second
league crown since winning the title in 2004 under
Guyana-born coach James Mc Lean, are against
Club Sando, Police FC and San Juan Jabloteh in
their last three league games but not before host-
ing MIC IT St. Ann's Rangers from 4 pm in Tues-
day's league ixture at the Arima Velodrome in
search of three more points.
Meanwhile, Connection (27 points), which
have rivals Central, Defence Force and Morvant
Caledonia United in its last three league ixtures,
must irst turn its focus to Tuesday's league visit
to Barataria Oval against San Juan Jabloteh from
5pm then on to the semi- inal round of the First
Citizens Cup on Nov. 3 against Club Sando.
Sando (22 points), third on the Pro League
standings, will host Jabloteh from 3.30 pm at Man-
nie Ramjohn Stadium on Sunday with the hopes of
improving their mathematical chance of earning
a CONCACAF Champions League qualifying spot
which goes to the top two League inishers.
Connection had themselves to blame against
North East, a side they allowed to claw back a late
2 2 draw on Jul. 14 in Round One, after team cap-
tain and veteran mid ielder Hughtun Hector, in
his irst game back from injury---spilled overbar in
Arima with the goal at his mercy just over the hour
mark following a defensive error by the hosts.
Moments later Hector tried to redeem himself
with a neat free-kick delivery but substitute Weslie
John headed wide of the target after meeting the
cross near the back post.
Then, three minutes from the end of regu-
lar time, a headed attempt from mid ield Briel
Thomas cannoned off the bar as Stuart Charles-Fe-
vrier's side failed to draw level before the inal
blow of referee Gordon Maloney's whistle.
Stars, who survived a couple scares near the
break, also had their moments of missed chances
with defender Julius James heading overbar ive
minutes from the half off a corner swung in by
Kerry Baptiste, who later failed to capitalise from
the edge of the six-yard when he was picked out in
the area by an improvised pass from second-half
substitute Kordell Samuel.
Archibald was forced into a save from Keston
George just before the hour mark and a couple
minutes later, Densill Theobald should have had,
at least, forced the Connection goalie into another
save, but ired inches wide of the top corner from
the top of the box.
The Stars, though, would hold on for a ifth con-
secutive league win thanks to their captain Elton
John's third league goal and fourth in all compe-
titions this season, but irst in open play with his
previous three scored from the penalty spot.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Point For-
tin Civic moved two spots off the bottom, leapfrog-
ging Rangers and Police to go eight after holding
off the latter for a 2 1 win at the Barataria Oval in
the only other ixture contested on Friday.
Shackiel Henry opened the scoring for his irst
league goal of the season since returning to Civic
from Connection in mid-season and Shaquille
Dublin, for his second goal in as many matches,
made it two-nil early in the second half before Ka-
reem Perry pulled a goal back for Police on the
TT Pro League CEO Dexter Skeene greets North East Stars defensive midfielder Elton John, left, following the final of the 2016 First Citizens
Cup which was won by Defence Force FC.
