Kern Smart doubled his goal tally of last season with an uninterrupted first-half beaver-trick to steer Point Fortin Civic Under-14s to a 7-0 win over hosts MIC-IT St. Ann’s Rangers on Sunday, Match Day Two of the 2018 Flow Youth Pro League #flowypl #wherestarsareborn.

Smart, of La Brea, scored in the 6th, 11th, 20th and 28th minutes to galvanize Civic U14s at St. Augustine Secondary before teammates Luke Phillip (36), Jaeden Henry (60) and Taye Simon (64) completed the romp and their first win of the season after two attempts to occupy fourth on the division’s standings behind, in descending order, leaders W Connection, Morvant Caledonia United and Police FC who all registered wins on Sunday.

Smart, last season, ended with just two goals to his name after a double scored in a 4-1 win over Club Sando in June, but could be on his way towards a brighter season in 2018 and should look to add to his tally when Civic host San Juan Jabloteh next Sunday at Mahaica Oval.

Civic, however, had to settle for a point against Rangers in both the Under-16 and Under-18 divisions but had done enough to return to Point Fortin unbeaten on Sunday.

Rangers, in an effort to rebound firstly through their U16s, saw Darius Douglas level them twelve minutes into the second half, after Thaj Neptune had put Civic ahead on 41 minutes at the St. Augustine venue. But seven minutes later Rangers had Tyrek Forbes sent with his second yellow card in a space of a dozen minutes — a blow that Civic failed to capitalize on — and both teams, at the final whistle, had to settle for a 1-1 result.

Rangers and Civic also played to a 1-1 draw in the U18 division. Stephon Joseph equalised late for Civic with two minutes left to complete the visitors’ unbeaten away trip after Matthias Kendo had put Rangers in front on 56 minutes.


In the surprise result of Sunday, Morvant Caledonia United U14s, the whipping boys of last season, edged San Juan Jabloteh 1-0 at San Juan North Secondary through a late Romario Nelson strike for a second win in as many matches under new coaches Sheldon De Freitas and Martin Romany.

Morvant Caledonia, though, surrendered full points in the U14 and U16 divisions by default for a second consecutive time and will look for their first points in both divisions when the host Police FC next Sunday at Barataria Oval.

Elsewhere, talented W Connection youth forward Molik Khan scored a double, first opening the Savonetta Boys’ U14’s scoring in the third minute then completing a 4-2 win against Club Sando four minutes from the end at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

Joshua Mason (8) had levelled Sando after Khan (M)’s opening strike and Jaylon Brereton (14) scored to send the visitors in at the break with a 2-1 lead. But Dantaye Gilbert (44) equalised for Connection from the penalty spot before teammate Ethan Trotman (52) restored the lead and Khan (M) (66) completing his double and the win.

Khan (M)’s elder brother Shoaib Khan also starred Sunday, scoring the only goal of the game to give Connection maximum points for a second time in as many matches, like their U14s, with a 1-0 win over Sando in the U18 division.

But earlier, Connection had to settle for a 2-2 draw against Sando in the U16 division despite a Denilson Dogan double. Dogan scored early on either side of the half against the visitors, first opening the scoring in the second minute then levelling Connection five minutes into the second half after Marc Warfe (13) and Menes Jahra (25) had sent Sando in at the break with the lead.

Also on Sunday, Police FC registered their first victories of the season in the U14 and U16 divisions with 3-2 wins over Defence Force FC at Frederick Settlement Ground in Caroni to maintain their unbeaten status this term. Police U18s, however, were held to a 1-1 draw by Defence Force FC.
