A hat-trick from David Mal­oney for Cen­tral Soc­cer World en­sured his team a 4-3 vic­to­ry over cen­tral neigh­bours Cen­tral FC, as well as his team close off the sea­son at sixth po­si­tion on 22 points in the As­cen­sion Foot­ball League on Sun­day at the St James Bar­racks.

The match was the last to be played in the first ma­jor foot­ball tour­na­ment af­ter two years due to the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, but Mal­oney’s hero­ics may have come just a tad bit too late. Mal­oney opened the scor­ing in the 14th minute, giv­ing his team a 1-0 ad­van­tage, but their cel­e­bra­tions last­ed just two min­utes be­fore Shem Clauzel found the equal­iz­er in the 17th.

Both teams en­dured a pe­ri­od of back and fro as they tried to break each oth­er’s de­fences. How­ev­er, the Cen­tral FC re­sis­tance was bro­ken when Mal­oney again found the net in the 32nd. And Keilon Bur­nett made it 3-1 be­fore the teams went to the half-time in­ter­val.

Af­ter the break Cen­tral FC Lev­elled knot­ted up the scores with two goals in quick suc­ces­sion, com­ing from Miguel Williams in the 60th and the 65th min­utes.

It gave the Ross Rus­sell-coached team some hopes of fin­ish­ing off the sea­son on a win­ning note but Mal­oney spoiled their plans. The pro­lif­ic Cen­tral Soc­cer World strik­er then de­liv­ered a dag­ger in­to the hearts of the Cen­tral FC play­ers and staff with the win­ning goal in the 73rd minute.

Both teams will now at­tempt to reg­is­ter for the com­ing New Elite Foot­ball League (NE­FL) be­ing of­fered by the T&T Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion/Nor­mal­i­sa­tion Com­mit­tee which is sched­uled to be­gin next month.

The As­cen­sion was com­fort­ably won by an out­stand­ing Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers which played un­beat­en all sea­son and fin­ished with 48 points. De­throned champs De­fence Force (41 points) lat­er de­feat­ed Po­lice 2-1 for the sec­ond, while the Law­men se­cured third on 37 points.
