Point Fortin go second

 Point Fortin Civic jumped two spots up the ladder and now occupies second position on the 2013-2014 Digicel Pro League standings after playing to a goalless draw against Central FC on Saturday. 

Point Fortin joined North East Stars and Police on 17 points, but are second on goal difference. All three are 15 points away from runaway leaders DIRECTV W Connection (32 points). Central remained in sixth positioned with 14 points.

Central visited the Mahaica Oval equipped with four debuting starters and had definitely hoped for maximum three points against a side that convincingly won their last two outings.

But the Terry Fenwick-coached Central, featuring new signings, Trinidad and Tobago international striker Willis Plaza, ex-World Youth Cup captain Leston Paul, former Defence Force utility player Samuel Delice and ex-national senior team defender Yohance Marshall alongside recent acquisition and “Soca Warriors” playmaker, Ataullah Guerra only managed a point.

Meanwhile, Point Fortin, coming off Tuesday’s 3-0 win over bottom-of-the-table St. Ann’s Rangers at the Marvin Lee Stadium, and last weekend’s 5-0 win over Police FC at the Mahaica Oval, failed to pick up a third win in a row.

Point Fortin’s 22 year-old attacker Marcus Joseph, scorer of back to back hat-tricks in his team’s last two outings, dragged a second half penalty wide. Central too had cause for regret late in the match when substitute Rundell Winchester struck the crossbar.
