Port of Spain, Trinidad - Queen's Park Oval (QPCC) scored a 3-1 victory over Fatima to return to the top of the Trinidad and Tobago Hockey Board Men’s Championship Division standings last weekend, at the National Hockey Centre in Tacarigua.

QPCC leapfrogged Notre Dame to reach 18 points and take the lead ahead of Notre Dame, who are second with 16 points from seven matches. Defending champions Petrotrin stayed on 13 after another surprise 2-1  loss to Courts Malvern last Sunday.

Dominic Young and Nicholas Camacho gave the Parkites the 2-0 lead  at the half before Young secured his double to send them 3-0 up after the break.  Jordan Vieira got a late consolation for Fatima.

In the Malvern/Petrotrin clash, secondary school male player of the year Teague Marcano netted a double in the sixth and 13th minute before Wayne Legerton punched home a 66th minute effort for Petrotrin.

In the women’s competition, Oire Trotman and Krizia Lane netted two goals each as Courts Malvern took advantage of an understrength defending champions Notre Dame line-up for a 4-1 result.

And in the Mixed Vets division, Jameel “Harry” Beharry scored a quick double as Defence Force dented the title ambitions of Notre Dame in the Mixed Veterans Division with an entertaining 4-3 triumph last week.
