Lindell Sween scored a hat-trick to inspire San Juan Jabloteh to a 6-1 hammering of Defence Force en route to a fourth straight lien on the T&T Youth Pro League Under-13 Division League trophy at San Juan North Secondary School, Bourg Mulatresse, San Juan on Saturday.
Having dropped its first points of the season in a drawn result with North East Stars the previous round, Jabloteh was in no mood to have its title celebrations stalled for yet another week and went ahead as early as the third minute through an own goal from Malik Harraman.
Sween made it 2-0 in the ninth while Roshuan Doobay converted a penalty in the 12th too cut the lead.
Raheem Mohan and versatile Thane Devenish, who also serves as goalkeeper, made it 4-1 with items in the 13th and 17th minutes respectively before Sween completed his treble in the 20th and 30th to carry his club to an unattainable 22 points from eight matches and one left to play while W Connection with 17 points, was held to a 2-2 draw by Club Sando.
In the U-15 Division, Terminix La Horquetta Rangers hold onto the lead with 18 points from eight matches, one ahead of Jabloteh, while Police FC and Pt Fortin Civic, who faced off yesterday are next with 15 points each.
This after Rangers blanked North East Stars 2-0 on strikes from Akiem St Phillip in the third minute, and Yannis Oliver in the 66th at D’Abadie Recreation Ground, while Jabloteh also won 2-0 over Defence Force thanks to Israel Joseph (46th) and Kyle Dwarika (55th), second-half goals.
In the U-17 competition, Club Sando (19 points) hangs onto a slim lead over Pt Fortin Civic (18), while W Connection and Central FC, both on 16 are also still in the title discussion.
