Danielle Martin scored two goals to lead Malvern to a come-from-behind 3-2 triumph over defending champions Paragon in the T&T Hockey Board Women’s Championship Division at the National Hockey Centre, Tacarigua on Tuesday night.

Gabrielle Thompson fired Paragon into a fifth-minute lead which it held until Martin, coming off a hat-trick versus Notre Dame, a 7-1 win, drew Malvern level in the 28th minute.

Six minutes later, Martin netted her second of the match to put Malvern 2-1 ahead before Jamaican-born Andrea Jackson extended the advantage to 3-1 in the 40th minute, only for Felicia King to cut the lead in the 49th minute.

The win was the second for Malvern in three matches to move to seven points, the same as Shandy Carib Magnolias at the top of the table.

Last night, in the Men’s Championship, T&T Defence Force came up against Paragon while today, the national senior men’s hockey team will face off with Guyana from 2.30 pm as part of their Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games preparations.

The T&T men’s squad under the super of coach Glen “Fido” Francis will also meet their Guyanese rivals on Saturday (11 am) and Sunday (10 am) as they look ahead to their (CAC) Games from July 20 to August 3, 2018 in Barranquilla, Colombia where they will face Cuba, Barbados and Colombia in Pool A while Jamaica, Mexico, Guyana and the Dominican Republic are in Pool B.
