Paragon men and women teams were both in winners row in their respective Open Division matches when the T&T Hockey Board Indoor Championship continued at the Woodbrook Youth Facility, Woodbrook on the weekend.
On Sunday in the men's Open competition, Paragon got a goal each from Tarell Singh (13th), Kelon Skerritt (14th), Joel Daniel (21st), and Tariq Singh (33rd) to cancel out Shawn Phillip's 32nd-minute item for Malvern in their 4-1 triumph.
A night earlier, Defence Force got a goal in each half from Marcus James to hold off Queen's Park Cricket Club, 4-3 for their second win in four matches.
Isaiah Scott netted in the first minute and James, two minutes later to put Defence Force 2-0 up before Dominic Young pulled one back for the Parkites in the seventh minute.
Dylan Francis regained a two-goal cushion for Defence Force in the 24th minute while James got his second in the 37th minute for a 4-1 lead.
Staring defeat in the face, the Parkites mounted a late rally with Darren Cowie scoring a penalty in the 38th and Youn getting his second to bring their team within one goal with seconds remaining in the clash.
However, it was too little too late for the Parkites as Defence Force held on for the win.
<Thompson sisters on target>
The Thompson sisters, Kristin and Gabrielle were both on target as Paragon defeated Ventures 5-2 for a third win from as many matches in the Women's Open Division.
Paragon got off to a positive start with Zene Henry scoring inside the first minute, only for Lindsay Williams to reply for Ventures in the fifth minute, before Henry netted again in the eighth minute to restore Paragon's advantage at 2-1.
Kristin Thompson then made it 3-1 in the 16th followed by items from Keima Gardiner in the 34th and the younger of the Thompson sisters, Gabrielle in the 37th, before Emerald Piper got a second consolation item for Ventures in the 39th.
