Waterhouse FC face the uphill task of not just turning over a 2-0 deficit in their CONCACAF League quarterfinal tie against Montagua but doing so away after a defeat at the National Stadium in Kingston on Monday night. 

Goal keeper Akeen Chambers helped Waterhouse of Jamaica top Costa Rica’s Herediano 7-6 in a penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw in the second leg of the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League Round of 16 on Thursday night at the Eladio Rosabal Cordero in Heredia, Costa Rica. 

The 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League Round of 16 continues on Thursday night with a decisive second-leg clash between reigning SCL champion Herediano of Costa Rica and Waterhouse of Jamaica at the Estadio Eladio Rosabal Cordero in Heredia, Costa Rica.

The two teams played to an entertaining 1-1 draw in the first leg, with Andre Fletcher scoring early for the Jamaicans prior to Keysher Brown’s equalizer for the Ticos in the first half.

While the Costa Rican side boasts plenty of Concacaf experience in both the SCL and the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League, Waterhouse showed in the first leg in Kingston that it can go toe-to-toe with Herediano, which should make for a thrilling and decisive second leg.

Fletcher and Keithy Simpson will lead the Waterhouse attack, while Herediano has its own dangermen in the form of Jose Guillermo Ortiz, Francisco Rodriguez and first-leg scorer Brown.

Also in Herediano’s favor is its home form in Concacaf play.

In previous SCCL appearances, Herediano owns a 21W-3D-5L record on home soil, while in last season’s SCL, the Florenses posted a 4W-0D-0L record, with eight goals scored and zero conceded.

Waterhouse goalscoring hero Andre Fletcher has been very philosophical about the task his team has ahead of them when they go to Costa Rica next week. 

Reigning Scotiabank Concacaf League champion CS Herediano of Costa Rica grabbed a slim edge in its 2019 SCL Round of 16 series with a key away goal against Jamaica’s Waterhouse in a 1-1 draw on Thursday night at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. 

Portmore United go into the second leg of their quarter-final match of the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF League in Kingston next Thursday, needing to win by two clear goals following their 3-2 loss to Motagua in Honduras on Thursday night.

Arabe United is through to the quarterfinals of the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF League with a 4-2 win on aggregate over Arnett Gardens of Jamaica in the Round of 16.
