Guyana’s ‘Lily’ Pollard, scores in T&T Pro League

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – The St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) international Shandel Samuel netted one of four goals for Ma Pau as they ran past Caledonia AIA 4-2 in Trinidad and Tobago’s Digicel Pro League on Friday night.

Anthony Wolfe struck a blistering hat-trick to propel Ma Pau to the upset victory against second-placed Caledonia, who got one of their goals from the veteran Charles `Lily’ Pollard.

The result moved Ma Pau up from fourth to third in the standings.
Samuel gave Ma Pau a second minute lead and Wolfe made it 3-0 in a flash with goals in the eighth and 10th minutes, both times from the penalty spot.

Pollard pulled a goal back in the 14th minute in a frenetic start to the Marvin Lee Stadium match.
Wolfe scored again five minutes before the halftime break and Kareem Joseph notched a consolation strike for Caledonia in the 65th minute.

In the evening’s other match, Shahdon Winchester scored two first-half goals and Andre Toussaint’s (12th) was also on target as W Connection dismissed St Ann’s Rangers 3-0.
