Golden Jaguars and former Fruta Conquerors forward Pernell Schultz was on target last evening (April 15), when Morvant Caledonia United defeated Police FC 3 – 1 on penalty, to face rivals DIRECTV W. Connection in the final of the Trinidad and Tobago’s Pro-League’s Lucozade Sport Goal Shield.
Schultz, 22, scored for the club owned by Golden Jaguars Head Coach Jamaal Shabazz in the 41st minute, but the lawmen equalized in the 77th minute through Kareem Freitas.
The “Eastern Stallions” own progress was unnecessarily complicated as they squandered a first half lead and a flurry of goal scoring chances before seeing off Police FC via kicks from the penalty mark.
Trinidad and Tobago international goalkeeper Marvin Phillip was the hero for Morvant Caledonia, as he saved penalties from Police captain Todd Ryan and Makesi Lewis.
Phillip is likely to need another big performance if Morvant Caledonia are to lift their first trophy of the season next Friday.
Bankers Insurance Central FC struck first but, in the end, slumped to their third successive defeat after another decisive contribution from DIRECTV W Connection captain Hughtun Hector.
Hector, who scored the lone goal in Connection’s 1-0 midweek Pro League win over Central, managed a double tonight as the “Savonetta Boys” romped to a 4-2 win over their out-of-sorts Couva rivals in the Lucozade Sport Goal Shield semifinals at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
The result means Connection will face Morvant Caledonia United in next Friday’s final at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.
It will be Connection’s third cup final of the 2015/16 season, after they helped themselves to the First Citizens Cup and Toyota Classic Cup titles. And Morvant Caledonia would be hard pressed to deny coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier’s troops a hattrick.
