    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago – Trinidad & Tobago struck twice in the second half to defeat visiting Jamaica for the second time in five days, 2-0, on Tuesday at Hasely Crawford Stadium.

    The regional rivals previously met Friday in Montego Bay, a game that ended 1-0 in the Soca Warriors’ favor.

    Ataullah Guerra, who scored the lone goal in the previous encounter, gave the host a 1-0 lead in the 49th minute.  The Finland-based midfielder weaved his way from the left side, firing home from the middle of the area.

    Later in the half, Jamaican defender Alvas Powell fouled Rundell Winchester inside the box and referee Enrico Wijngaarde whistled for a penalty kick.  Stoke City forward Kenwyne Jones converted in the 73rd minute to double Trinidad’s advantage.

    Before kick-off, the Trinidad & Tobago Football Association honored Port Vale midfielder Chris Birchall.  The 2006 World Cup veteran, only 29, retired from international football in August and was making his farewell appearance in the red jersey.
