Webster returns to form in Cavalier losing effort
DESPITE a brace from Ronaldo Webster, Cavalier SC were on the losing end of the opening game of their Concacaf Caribbean Club Championship campaign inside the Estadio Cibao last evening.
Evyvens Dejean proved to be Cavalier's antagonist in chief yesterday after his brace gave Haiti's Violette AC a 3-2 win, a much wished for reprieve after their opening game shellacking from hosts Cibao FC.
Though it was the Jamaicans who opened the scoring in the third minute of play through Webster's effort, they would go into the half-time break trailing after Elyvens Dejean equalised for the Haitian outfit in the 25th minute before Kerlins Georges made it 2-1 seven minutes into time added on.
In total, the game would include more than 10 and a half minutes of added time.
At 2-1 down, Cavalier would not go away with Webster's second goal of the night in the 63rd minute, restoring parity.
But there was to be another twist, with Dejean breaking the heart of the Jamaicans in the 71st with his own brace.
The result means Cavalier are at the bottom of the three-team Group A without a point while Cibao and Violette have three points each. Violette lie in second having played an extra game and having a minus two goal difference. Cibao, on the other hand, have only played their opening fixture and have a goal difference of plus three.
Cavalier will next face Cibao on Tuesday at 4 p.m. inside the Estadio Cibao.
Waterhouse, the other Jamaican club in action yesterday, had a 2-0 win over hosts Archahaie of Haiti. Andre Moulton, in the 23rd minute, and Devroy Grey in the 79th, were the scorers.
