PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, Nov. 25 (AP)

TRINIDAD defeated Haiti 4-2 today in the second game of their elimination round for the World Soccer Cup. Haiti won the first game 4-0 Saturday.

The Trinidadians were ahead 2-1 at half time today.

Trinidad who seemed unable to stop the Haitian attacks Saturday, came onto the field determined to win today, blaming their initial defeat on their unfamiliarity with the grounds.

Today's game was played before 15,000 spectators after a shower of rain had soaked the field.

Trinidad opened the scoring with a goal at the third minute. Guy St. Vil made it 1-1 with a goal for Haiti in the 25th. Then Trinidad took the lead again with a goal by Cummings in the 42nd minute.

Trinidad opened the second half with constant attacking movements but the Haitians managed to even up 2-2, before the Trinidadians shot in the last two goals to make it 4-2.

Archibald was the best player for Trinidad, who won with their quicker play and better passing.
