TUCKER, St James — Montego Bay United advanced to the quarter-finals of the Flow Champions Cup Knockout competition yesterday after scoring a close 1-0 victory over Western Confederation Super League team Holland United at the WespoW Park in Tucker.
Despite creating the majority of the scoring chances in the game that was mostly played in a steady heavy drizzle, the Premier League team only prevailed through a second-half penalty conversion from the veteran Lacon Brissett.
Holland, who had eliminated relegated Premier League team Savannah SC a week ago in the first round, gave as good as they got and should have at least forced overtime, but for a missed header from point-blank range in the 70th minute by Donovan Clarke who had advanced from his defensive position.
Montego Bay United made four changes to their team that had beaten Rockfort FC 5-0 the previous round and included strikers Dino Williams and Lesly St Fleur who teamed with Allen Ottey, but found the going tough in front of goal.
Ottey had the entire goal to choose his spot in the 29th minute but hit a ball straight at goalkeeper Renard Brown and minutes later Williams shot just wide from close range.
The home team finally got the break though in the 54th minute when Jermaine Woozencroft was tripped up in the penalty box and Brissett easily beat the goalkeeper with the spot kick.
