Trinidad and Tobago defeated South Africa 2-0 in a international friendly in Port of Spain on Thursday.

Yorke puts Man U on top.

Dwight Yorke scored what may be his most important goal in a few weeks on Sunday afternoon. With the score tied 0-0 in a uninspiring game Yorke sneaked behind the defense in the 45th minute to score the game's only goal.

The goal was Yorke's 18th league strike and his 29th score overall. The goal by Yorke moved Manchester United into a tie with Arsenal for the top position in the English Premiership. However, ManU has one game in hand. They will play Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday before they enter this weekend's final league game versus Tottenham. Arsenal plays Aston Villa on Saturday's season finale.

Latapy end's dream season.

What a season for Russell Latapy. He may not have the scoring prowless of Dwight Yorke or Stern John but his touches in the field of play propelled Hibernian to the top of the Scottish First division.

Latapy and Hibs completed there dream season with a 2-1 win over Falkirk. This put them light years ahead of any competition. Hibs won the first division championship with a amazing 89 points, 23 points ahead of second placed Falkirk. They also had a goal difference of 51 goals.

Now the premiership beckons. Lets hope Latapy can repeat the same type of performances against the likes of Rangers and Celtic.
