CLARENDON, Jamaica — Waterhouse advanced to the semi-finals of the Flow Champions Cup following a battling 1-0 victory over Sporting Central Academy at Juici Patties
Striker Jermaine 'Tuffy' Anderson notched the winner on the stroke of half-time with a long-range effort.
While the goalkeeper was largely at fault for the goal, it was an ambitious effort from Anderson, who — despite being urged by his teammates not to shoot -- let fly from some 40 yards out, leaving an out-of-position Gerald Eastwood to flap at the ball as it flew into the top right-hand corner of his cage.
The defeat was hard on Sporting Central, considering that they dictated play up to the point of the goal and should have been at least two-nil up inside the first 30 minutes.
Chasing the equaliser, they were also the more positive team in the second half, but a combination of poor decision making and constructive Waterhouse defending kept them off the score sheet for a second successive home game.
Waterhouse coach Junior Francis, who is "looking forward" to either Harbour View or Portmore United in the semis, said tactical changes just before the goal did the trick for his team.
"Sporting were dominating the midfield, because we had two attacking midfielders, so we decided to change the formation. That was when we started to dominate and eventually got the goal," said Francis.
