T&T’s Joevin Jones

T&T Soca Warriors utility player Joevin Jones scored the opener as SV Darmstadt blanked Dynamo Dresden 2-0 in the German 2nd Bundesliga on Friday.

The 26-year old Jones who joined the club in the January transfer window from former US Major League Soccer champions Seattle Sounder last December opened the scoring in the 26th minute for a second goal in as many matches as third on the season while team-mate Tobias Kempe added the insurance item in the 55th minute.

A week ago he scored the equaliser on the hour mark in a 1-1 draw with Heidenhelm.

With the win, Darmstadt improved to 26 points from 25 matches and 17th on the 18-team table, two ahead of cellar-placed Kaiserslautern while Bochum is in the other relegation spot, 16th with 27 points.

Jones and SV Darmstadt will return to action versus tenth spot Inglostadt on Saturday.

This is the second season in European footballer for Jones the son of former Strike Squad defender Kelvin Jones who first campaigned with Finland’s HJK in 2014 winning the Suomen Cup and Viekkausliiga League crowns.

Prior to joining the German-club at the end of the 2017 US Major League Soccer season in November, Jones and Seattle Sounders were beaten 1-0 in the MLS Cup Final by Toronto FC after being crowned champions in 2016.

SV Darmstadt was promoted to the German Bundelisga for the 2015-2016 season but were relegated to 2nd Bundelisga after losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich on the final match day last season.
