The trio of Petrotrin (men), Paragon
(women) and Defence Force (veterans) won
in contrasting styles when the curtain came
down on the 11th annual Ventures Hockey
Club s Invitational Indoor Hockey Tour-
nament at the Woodbrook Youth Facility,
Hamilton-Holder Street, Woodbrook, on
In the Women s Open Division decider
Paragon beat hosts and defending champions
Ventures 3-1 to take the winner s trophy
and the US$1,000 cash prize.
Zene Henry scored a double and captain
Alanna Lewis, the "Most Valuable Player"
of the tournament contributed to their team s
victory, a repeat of last year s women s final.
When both teams met in the round-robin
stage on Saturday, the match ended 3-3
with Yesenia Luces, the tournament s leading
goalscorer netting all her team s goals while
Avion Ashton, Arielle Williams and Henry
netted for Paragon.
Notre Dame took third spot among the
women and US$250 via its 5-2 win over
visiting USA club, The Edge led by two goals
from Blair Wynne.
Wynne s aunt, Carol Wynne-Whiteman,
Dana-Lee de Gannes and Tamia Roach got
the others for the Dames to cancel out Laura
Mc Cormick s double for The Edge.
The Men s Open final which also carried
a first prize of US$1,000 went to a penalty
shoot-out where Petrotrin got goals from
Dwain Quan Chan, Evan Piers-Farrell, Atiba
Whittington and Brian Garcia to edge past
Queen s Park 4-2, after a pulsating 4-4
draw to register a third straight lien on the
Shawn Lee Quay and Dominic Young
converted for Queen s Park.
In regulation-time, Garcia, Whittington,
Wayne Legerton and Solomon Eccles were
the players on target for Petrotrin while Lee
Quay, Young, Jordan Reynos and Raphael
Govia had the Parkites replies.
The win was also sweet revenge for
Petrotrin, which was beaten, 5-4 by the
Parkites in the round-robin phase of the
competition on Friday night.
Notre Dame also snatched third spot in
the men s tournament after a narrow 8-7
triumph over Knott DF led by a hat-trick
from Ishmael Campbell and two apiece by
Shaquille Daniel, who carried his league
high tally to 11 and Aidan De Gannes, who
also netted twice.
And in the Veterans decider, it was one
way traffic as Defence Force inspired by an
Anton Reyes treble clobbered Queen s Park,
10-2, a stark contrast to its 9-7 round-robin
victory on Thursday.
Nicholas Wren and guest player Gordon
Snow chipped in with doubles for the win-
ners while the trio of Kirth Davis, Peter
Aadmar and Roger Daniel, the "MVP" also
found the target as the Knott DF kept
Raphael Govia, the tournament s top scorer
with 17, off the scoresheet.

...Paragon take women's title
Central FC was denied a chance to go second
on the nine-team Digicel T&T Pro League after
being held to a 1-1 draw by lowly San Juan Jabloteh
at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo on
Despite dominating the first 45 minutes, Terry
Fenwick and his Central FC players had nothing to
show for in on the scoreboard against a plucky
Jabloteh line-up which looked threatening on the
However, four minutes after the re-start, former
Jabloteh duo, Dwight Quintero and Johan Peltier
combined to put the Central "Sharks" ahead.
Quintero, who struck overbar in the first-half
played a clever one-touch through-pass to Peltier
at the top of the 18-yard box, before the latter kept
his cool between two defenders and fired past goal-
keeper Kevin Dodds.
Central, with new signing and former Finland-
based T&T international Ataulla Guerra getting
his first feel of things with the Couva-based club
continued to enjoy the better of the exchanges with
its vastly experience line-up including midfield vet-
eran Marvin Oliver, Jason Marcan, Elton John, Peltier,
Guerra and Jamal Jack, dictatings the pace.
With the minutes ticking away, it seemed all was
lost for Jabloteh as coach keith Jeffrey replaced this
season s leading league goalscorer Baptiste and mid-
fielder Rennie Britto.
However, Shaquille Bertrand secured a point for
Jabloteh, when he first won a penalty and then
converted easily past goalkeeper Jan-Michael
The penalty was awarded by referee Cecile Hinds
when Bertrand s weak right footed cross from the
deep inside the left corner of the 18-yard box struck
the arm of Central right-back Elton John in the
second minute of time added-on.
While the Jabloteh players and coaching staff
celebrated, former England international and World
Cup defender, Fenwick
reacted in fury, and rightfully so as his team
squandered a chance to move into second.
With the draw, Central remained in sixth posi-
tioned, tied with Caledonia AIA on 12 points while
Jabloteh stayed eight, with seven points.
At the top of the standings is DirecTV W Con-
nection with 20 points from eight matches after
a 1-1 draw with Defence Force on Friday at the
same venue while Police FC, North East Stars and
defending champions Defence Force, are all on 13
points in second, third and fourth spot respec-
