Kevon Cornwall scored with two minutes left in regulation time to earn FC Santa Rosa a come-from-behind 2-1 win over defending champions Guaya United in the T&T Super League on Saturday.

Joseph Brown had the home crowd at Guaya Recreation Ground in a frenzy when he fired in the go-ahead item in the 25th minute.

However, that joy was short-lived as Kishun Seecharan drew Santa Rosa level three minutes later to send both teams in at the half-time interval levelled at 1-1.

The second-half was just as intense as the first 45 minutes and with the match seemingly heading for a draw, Cornwall conjured up the winner for the visitors to silence the home crowd.

The win lifted Santa Rosa to 37 points from 16 matches, three ahead of Queen's Park Cricket Club which played yesterday while Guaya remained fifth with 26 points.

Also on Saturday, Club Sando Cultural Roots United moved closer to safety with a 3-0 defeat of the University of T&T at Dibe Recreation Ground, Long Circular, St James.

The trio of Duran Felician, Jamal Burke and Kairon Joseph (penalty) were all on target for the winners, now ninth with 15 points, one more than UTT.
