Marcus Joseph strikes again for W Connection; no play at Arima Velodrome between N/E Stars and Central

W Connection are on a high--much credit to pre-season signing Marcus Joseph.

Joseph, who scored with a minute left to break the deadlock against a stubborn St. Ann's Rangers outfit on Monday, netted the Connection winner again for a 2-1 win over ex-club Point Fortin Civic last night at the Mahaica Oval.

Joseph's former employers and perennial Pro League champions Central FC were also scheduled to tackle hosts North East Stars at the iconic Arima Velodrome last night.

But protests by the visiting team and officials over ground conditions, including substandard lighting and poor field markings, resulted in no play to the disappointment of football fans who braved inclement weather to turn up at the Velodrome.

The Pro League will consider the particulars before deciding whether to award all three points to Central or sanction a replay.

Elsewhere at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, forward Julio Noel handed San Juan Jabloteh a 1-0 win over Defence Force after Police FC had come from behind to hold Morvant Caledonia to a 1-1 draw.
