WASA poured out the goals in the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association’s National Super League second match-day action yesterday, soaking defending champions Guaya United with six unanswered strikes on the rain-beaten WASA St Joseph Recreation Ground.
And following their 3-2 win over newcomers La Horquetta SA in Wednesday’s season-opening round, WASA have taken the early standings lead in the competition featuring 16 teams, four of them from Tobago.
All 16 were again scheduled for play yesterday but four of them have still not kicked off their campaign because travel arrangements to and from Tobago have not been satisfactorily sorted out.
For Wednesday’s opening round, the four matches involving the four Tobago teams were postponed because the Trinidad-based teams could not be accommodated on timely flights to Tobago and the no-play scenario unfurled again yesterday for two Tobago teams who had fixtures in Trinidad.
The all-Tobago match-up at Montgomery Recreation Ground yesterday ended with Stokely Vale beating Bethel United two goals to nil.
But Tobago’s Goal City match against Las Lomas United carded for Cunipia, central Trinidad was postponed as was the Larry Gomes Stadium fixture featuring 1976 FC Phoenix from Tobago and Malabar FC.
As a result these four teams are yet to get their campaign going since on Wednesday Goal City were to engage Defence Force, Las Lomas were drawn against Phoenix and Malabar were pitted against Bethel.
Defence Force yesterday opened with a 1-1 draw with FC Santa Rosa at the Youth Camp Ground in Macqueripe and there was another draw, 3-all, between Club Sando and Petrotrin Palo Seco at the Ato Boldon Satdium.
Joining WASA on winning street yesterday were Siparia Spurs, 3-1 over second-time losers Joe Public at the Palo Seco Velodrome and La Horquetta SA, 2-1 against Real Maracas on the Maracas Recreation Ground.
WASA’s yesterday capitalized on the goal-keeping weakness of Guaya United whose first-choice custodian was red-carded as early as the second minute for dangerous play.
Guaya also lost their opening match on Wednesday 1-2 to Club Sando.
For santa Rosa FC, it was a second draw in as many matches.
