Portmore face Sporting Central at Bramwell Park in RSPL today
PORTMORE United, fresh from their international tour in the USA, are set to play Sporting Central in a rescheduled Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) fixture at Bramwell Park Sports Complex today at 5:00 pm.
This game was originally fixtured for Sunday, but consequent to Portmore's participation in the Rose City Invitational Tournament in Portland, Oregon, it had to be rescheduled.
Portmore are currently 10th on the RSPL points table with 25, while Sporting Central are in seventh position. A win for either team would put them within striking distance of fourth place and strengthen ambitions for a top-four finish and a place in the semi-finals of the RSPL.
The community of Ewarton and its environs recently experienced premier league football with Rivoli United hosting Sporting Central at Bramwell Park on Wednesday, February 19 in a 1-1 draw, and Arnett Gardens on Sunday, March 2, with a 0-0 tie. Entrance fee is $500 and gates will be open at 4:00 pm.
Portmore returned to the island on Sunday following their participation in the Rose City Invitational tournament staged in Portland, Oregon, between February 23 and March 2.
Portmore lost 5-1 to Vancouver Whitecaps after playing most of the game in sub 35 degrees weather with 10 players due to a red card issued to the goalkeeper Jacomena Barrett in the 14th minute. Portmore actually took the lead at the 25th minute and the score was 1-1 at the break. The other results for Portmore were a 1-1 tie versus Portland Timbers and a 0-1 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes. All three teams play in MLS in the USA.
