Trinidad Blank Dominican Republic 9-0 In Friendly International

By Gary Smith

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad: Swansea City in-form striker Jason Scotland sounded his intentions for a starting place against Guatemala on Saturday, after he scored a hat-trick to guide Trinidad and Tobago to a comfortable 9-0 thrashing of Dominican Republic in a friendly international at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Wednesday night.

Ace striker Cornell Glen also lodged a hat-trick for the home side in their comfortable warm up victory before their two important CONCACAF matches.

Scotland, who was only drafted to replace the injured Colin Samuels at the weekend, got the hosts off the mark in the 28th minute with a grounder from inside the penalty area.

He got his second three-minutes later and then completed his hat-trick in the 35th minute with another low shot past goalkeeper Miguel Lloyd.

Glen, who replaced Scotland in the second half got his goals, with two coming the 72nd minute.

The other scorers for the home side were Anthony Wolfe (82nd) and Darryl Roberts (87th), while defender Federico Peralata scored an own goal on 45 minutes to add to the Dominican Republic's woes.

The Trinidadians are currently preparing for World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala and the United States on October 11 and 15, respectively.
