Modeste keeps Parkites' title race alive

VETERAN forward Devon Modeste led Queen's Park with four goals in a crucial 5-0 away win to RSSR FC in Curepe on Sunday, keeping the club with a fighting chance of winning the TT Super League crown with two rounds remaining.

Modeste, who earlier this season scored a hat-trick against Petit Valley/Diego Martin United, scored one goal in the first half against RSSR, before scoring another hat-trick in the second, carrying his season-long tally to 14 goals – 10 of which were scored in the last five matches.

Jared Bennett scored the other goal for Queen's Park just before the hour-mark.

The win kept Queen's Park three points off of leaders FC Santa Rosa, who won this weekend without kicking a ball.

FC Santa Rosa were scheduled to face Metal X Erin FC. However, the latter defaulted their past two matches and will not play for the remainder of the season due to apparent internal issues at the club.

As a result, FC Santa Rosa were awarded a default 3-0 win. Queen's Park will also be awarded an automatic 3-0 win this weekend as they were carded to face Erin FC.

FC Santa Rosa, therefore, will need a win or at the very least a draw against an inconsistent San Fernando Giants on Friday if they are to maintain their lead heading into the final round of matches.
