Something has to give! - Arnett, Waterhouse in hot Women's League mid-season final clash
Arnett Gardens and Waterhouse will meet in a highly anticipated clash in the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF)/Lascelles Employees and Partners Co-operative Credit mid-season final at Winchester Park tomorrow at 3:30 p.m.
Both teams topped their respective zones, hence they will battle for the first silverware in the new season. Waterhouse head Zone A on maximum 12 points, while Arnett Gardens won Zone B also on 12 points.
The scene is set for a mouth-watering clash between the best two teams in the league. This is due to the withdrawal of many-time champions Barbican as well as Los Perfectos and G.C. Foster College.
Denton Shedden, head coach of Arnett Gardens said that although his team has prolific striker Shanel Spence, it will be a team effort.
"It will be a tough game. Arnett was out of the league for a few season and is looking forward to a silverware," Shedden said.
'There is no special plan going into the game as we will continue to play as a team and hope to come out on top. She is the leading scorer and she has the ability to score against any opponent," he shared.
Spence, who transferred from Waterhouse after winning the Golden Boot award two years ago, is the top scorer on 10 goals. She should get support from Shaday Shirley, Shanise Foster, Rena Gordon and Shakira Douglas.
Meanwhile, Xavier Gilbert, head coach of Waterhouse, is fully aware of Spence's gaolscoring skill.
"It is going to be a keen contest on Sunday as the two best clubs in the league will clash in the mid-season final. We have to minimise her (Spence's) touches on the ball," Gilbert said.
Waterhouse will rely on Rochelle Grey, Chavelle Henry, Kennesha Reid, Christina Salmon, and Latoya Duhaney to come out winners.
