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. 

Waterhouse of Jamaica will be out to defend their home turf when they meet Honduran side Motagua in the first leg of the 2019 Scotiabank Concacaf League (SCL) quarterfinals on Wednesday night at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica. 

A horrific start to the new Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season continued for defending champions Portmore United after they were beaten 1-0 by Dunbeholden at the Spanish Town Prison Oval on Sunday.

The loss was the third in a row for Portmore who remain second from bottom and are yet to even score a goal.  This time around the damage was done by Dean-Andre Thomas who scored from the penalty spot for Dunbeholden in first-half stoppage time. 

Tivoli Gardens, another struggling former champion, also continued their wait to get on the points board after Keslon Hall found the back of the net in the 85th minute for their opponents Mount Pleasant.

After back to wins, Harbour View saw their momentum slowed to a crawl when they were hammered 7-0 by table-topping Waterhouse.  The onslaught was led by braces from Conrad Murray (36th, 50th minute), Kenroy Howell (19th 38th) and Stephen Williams (43rd, 62nd)  with the other goal coming from Andre Fletcher (21st).

At the other end of the spectrum, newcomers Molynes United continued a strong start to the season after earning their third straight win.  Defender Jeremy Nelson found the back of the net in the 22nd minute.  Elsewhere Cavalier and Humble Lion played to a 1-1 draw.

 

 

 

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. 

Cavalier registered yet another win over Waterhouse courtesy of a goal from Nicholas Hamilton.  Waterhouse have not beaten Cavalier in four years.

Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) leaders Portmore United continued the trend of netting late wins, this time flooring promoted Dunbeholden 1-0 at the Spanish Town Prison Oval on Sunday.

Striker Javon East scored his 5th goal of the season which gave the surging defending champions their fifth consecutive win.  The 84th-minute goal kept in the meantime kept Dunbeholden rooted to the bottom of the table, having lost three of their last five.  Elsewhere Harbour View’s wretched run of form also continued following a 2-2 draw with Humble Lions, which also left them winless in their last five. The Stars of the East led after Shemar Nairne found the back of the net in the 47th minute.  Oneil Thompson brought Humble Lion back on level terms three minutes later.  Nairne once again gave the former champions the lead in the 84th minute but they were again clawed back when Gregory Lewis responded in the 88th.

At Frome, Reno and Montego Bay also shared the points in a 1-1 draw.  Montego Bay took the lead through Jermaine Woozencroft but Rondell Morris got Reno a share of the points in the 53rd minute.  At UWI Alex Marshall got the lone goal as Cavalier handed the hosts their fifth consecutive loss.  In the late game, a Rafeik Thomas double secured Waterhouse a 2-1 win away at Tivoli.   

 

Defending champions Eurotrend and newcomers Ewarton played to a goalless draw on the opening weekend of the sixth staging of the Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (SFP) Six-A-Side Football Competition kicked-off on Saturday, October 20.

A red-hot start to the Red Stripe Premier League continued for newcomers Mount Pleasant as they added last year’s beaten finalist Waterhouse to a list of victims following a 1-0 win at Drax Hall on Sunday.

Two-time champ Waterhouse will be looking to prevent a dream start for both newcomers, as the league’s other debutants Mount Pleasant Football Academy stunned defending champions Portmore United on Sunday.
