Central miss a step

By Ian Prescott ian.prescott@trinidadexpress.com

A VERY LATE penalty from Shaquille Bertrand earned San Juan Jabloteh a 1-1 draw with Central FC in the Digicel Pro League on Sunday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

 Central looked well on course to secure all three points that would have catapulted them into second spot. Instead, Jabloteh were awarded a penalty after Bertrand’s cross was prevented from reaching its destination by the arm of left-back Elton John. Bertrand converted past Trinidad and Tobago national goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams to rescue a point for Jabloteh.

Earlier, Central FC took a lead five minutes into the second half with midfielder Johan Peltier scoring, after racing onto a pass from striker Dwight Quintero and putting the ball past former T&T youth team keeper Kevin Dodds in the Jabloteh goal. 

Central sported a new signing, T&T national midfielder Atuallah Guerra, who spent last season in Finland, but they lacked a cutting edge at times. 

Jabloteh relied on pace on the counter-attack.  Mainly, both teams struggled to create chances, and Jabloteh finished the more satisfied, having snatched a result from impending defeat. Central ended the first round with 12 points and in sixth spot, while Jabloteh lie eighth with seven points.
