UPDATE: TEN MAN ROSA WINS FOR CLARKIE

FC Santa Rosa made he short journey to the other side of Arima last night to face UTT. The Big cannons were without the services of league leading scorer Keron Clarke, who suffered a broken ankle in training on Thursday night. Dedicating the remainder of the season to Clarke, Santa Rosa won the match 2:1 with an epic performance.

UTT scored first, against the run of play, from a corner the Big Cannons failed to clear (32″). Santa Rosa responded immediately when Rashad Griffith was fouled from behind in the UTT penalty area and duly scored the penalty kick (35″). The Big Cannons continued in control of the match until half time, when the referee controversially ejected Santa Rosa centre back Jesse Reyes, supposedly for an off the ball incident with a UTT player.

Santa Rosa changed its approach on the resumption, adopting a more defensive stance and seeking the counter-attack. This tactic proved effective as UTT failed to break down the well organized and doughty Big Cannons. The match was won when midfielder Jesse Rampersad won the ball and quickly forward Nathan Julien who dribbled his defender and scored a bullet from fifteen yards (70″).

The win eases Santa Rosa into second place in the Super League table, on twenty-two points, four behind leaders Guaya United FC, but with a match in hand. On Sunday 27 August the Big Cannons come home tho the Velodrome to face Cunupia FC from 4.00PM.
