Beaches Ocho Rios drub Golden Eye 8-1 to eye Sandals Business House semisSaturday, September 07, 2013
BEACHES Ocho Rios drubbed Golden Eye Resort 8-1 on Thursday to give themselves a glorious chance of qualifying for the semi-finals of the Sandals St Ann/St Mary Business House Football Competition.
The family resort team is now in third place in Zone A on 10 points, behind defending champions and early qualifiers Couples Sans Souci (16), and Couples Tower Isle (13). Beaches, however, have a match in hand and with a superior goal difference, a win would see them through to the semi-finals ahead of Couples Tower Isle.
Beaches will clash with Sunset Jamaica Grande tomorrow at 4:00 pm in the feature match of a double header at Drax Hall, and a win will guarantee them a place in the semi-finals.
In the opening match at 2:00 pm, Sandals Grande Riviera will do battle against Jewels Runaway Bay.
Lennox Green, manager of the Beaches Ocho Rios team, said his charges were ready for the tough battle ahead against a strong Sunset Jamaica Grande team. "We know that they are a very good team and we will not be taking them lightly. We will put our best foot forward and hope for a victory. We expect a hard fought contest."
Meanwhile, Gran Bahia Principe and RIU Ocho Rios captured the semi-final spots in Zone B. RIU Ocho Rios scored an emphatic 9-2 victory over Margaritaville on Wednesday to force a dramatic three-way tie at the top of the zone with Gran Bahia and SADCO. RIU and Bahia, however, advanced on better goal difference.
President of the St Ann Business House Football Association Danny Beckford said the matches tomorrow should be worth travelling miles to see.
"We have a great double-header and I am encouraging supporters to turn out in their numbers and support the teams, " Beckford said.
