Wadadah's miserable season continues with loss
MONTEGO BAY, St James — Wadadah FC's miserable season continued on Thursday after they were knocked out of the St James Football Association Captain's Bakery and Grill Knock-out by Lilliput Rovers 7-8 on sudden-death penalties in their quarter-final game at the UDC field, after they had played out a 1-1 draw after regulation and extra time.
Two days after a loss to Reno FC in the Western Confederation Super League cost them a place in the semi-finals, Wadadah FC were denied a place in the top four of the parish knock-out by Lilliput Rovers, who are playing in the St James FA Sandals/ATL/Honda Senior League for the first time.
Lilliput Rovers, who were sensationally knocked out by Premier League team Montego Bay United two years ago, came from behind against Wadadah FC on Tuesday, holding them to a 1-1 draw after regulation and extra time then outscored them 7-8 in sudden-death penalties.
Tyshan Hill had given Wadadah FC the lead in the 11th minute before Kemar Reynolds equalised in the 58th and the teams battled for the remainder of regulation and extra time before going to penalty shootout.
Lilliput will now face defending champions Montego Bay United in one semi-final, while Norwood Strikers and Granville United will meet in the other to decide the finalists.
