Waterhouse eased past rivals Arnett Gardens 3-0 in a fierce Red Stripe Premier League game at the Anthony Spaulding Complex in Trench Town yesterday.

Substitute Kemar Beckford scored in the 63rd minute, followed by goals from Romario Campbell (69th) and Irvino English (81st). Waterhouse was reduced to 10 players as Jeffrey Henry received a second yellow card and was ejected in added time.

 

DETERMINATION

 

It was a good victory for Waterhouse, who showed more determination and fight than the home side. For coach Glendon 'Admiral' Bailey it was a second win in seven games after he took over from Marvin Tate in November.

"It is a good victory for us as the team worked hard leading up to the match. The effort and fight was there today. We have to keep working," Bailey said.

He also added that injuries and red card have been plaguing the team.

"Our main problem is injuries and cards, however, there is a lot of points to play for and my job is to turn things around," he added.

Meanwhile, coach of Arnett Gardens Jerome Waite said the game was a physical affair.

"It was a very physical game and I think more cards should have been issued. Waterhouse needed points and came to win at all cost," Waite said.
