PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Oct. 31 (Reuters):

Trinidad scored a one-nil victory over Nautico, the first division club from Brazil, in their third and final match at the Queen's Park Oval here today.

In the previous games Nautico won 3-1 and drew 4-4.

Trinidad's goal was scored by Wilfred Cave, a late replacement for left winger Ken Murren.

Cave's goal came in the 37th minute with a cracking left footer which gave Nautico's goalkeeper, Mario Cesar, no chance.

The Brazilians pressed relentlessly throughout the second half for an equaliser but some spectacular saves by goalkeeper, Gerald Figeroux staved off the visitors attacks.

Nautico were without their star player, Eloi, for the better part of the match. He was injured last Thursday following a clash with an opposing player.

The Brazilians will leave for Surinam on Tuesday.
