Rangers, Caledonia in Round Two gridlock

Rangers, Caledonia in Round Two gridlockSt. Ann’s Rangers and Caledonia AIA were unable to get ahead of each other in all three age groups of Sunday’s 2011 Oasis Youth Pro League Round Two Match Day Three clashes with drawn results.

It was a similar situation with gridlock throughout most parts of western Trinidad on Sunday, as huge cross sections of the population tried to make their way into Chaguarams to witness the first ever Red Bull Flug Tag in the Caribbean. But in the end, thousands were left stuck in traffic, failing to get ahead of each other, disappointed and wishing for wings.

For Rangers playing hosts to Caledonia in the nearby Mucurapo Secondary Ground, the results got off on a 2-2 draw in the U13s followed by 3-3 in the U15s and ended 1-1 in the U17s.

Jalani Brown(65th minute) and Che Benny(69th minute) scored in the U13s for Rangers to come from behind after Caledonia failed to hold on to a 2-0 advantage with goals by Jean-Marc Jackman(11th minute) and Tekey Hoyce(60th minute) in the U13s.

In the U15s, Jevon Quamina(18th and 54th minutes) equalized twice for Rangers, meeting items scored by Caledonia’s Leland Archer(12th minute) and Sean Bonval(36th minute). Rangers then went ahead in the 65th minute through Mattheaus Williams’ strike but five minutes later Jamal Philbert locked the scores at 3-3.

And in the U17s, Caledonia got the go ahead goal in the 20th minute through Kevin McLean and it stood the advantage fifty-five minutes when Dillon King equalized for the home side in the 75th minute for a 1-1 finish.

The Rangers are third on the U13s, U15s and U17s standings, while Caledonia occupies fifth on the U13s and U15s and a disappointing 8th position on the U17s standings.
