COOPERS PEN, Trelawny — Coopers Pen sent a big signal when they beat Wait-A-Bit PYC 3-1 in their Trelawny Football Association Major League quarter-final game at Coopers Pen on Sunday.

The Group One game, which included two first-round group winners, was the featured game of the weekend as the quarter-finals kicked off.

Kinloss FC joined Coopers Pen at the top of the Group One points table after coming from behind to beat Rio Bueno FC, while Duanvale FC are the leaders in Group Two after their 2-0 win over Duncans United.

The Jackson Town vs Holland United game set for William Knibb Memorial was not played due to a waterlogged field, and will be rescheduled.

Shannovan McKenzie scored twice for Coopers Pen, as they had to come from a goal down to beat Wait-A-Bit PYC in a game that pitted two teams with similar records from the first round.

Both had won their first-round group with 17 points, with identical records of five wins, two draws and a loss, but Wait-A-Bit scored 20 goals, twice as many as Coopers Pen.

Ricardo Smith gave Wait-A-Bit the lead in the 29th minute, but McKenzie restored parity two minutes later as they were tied 1-1 at the half-time break.

Andre Palmer gave Coopers Pen the lead in the 60th minute before McKenzie took his league-leading tally to nine goals with a second in the 81st minute.

Kinloss FC were made to work hard for their win as they trailed 0-1 at half-time after Garfield Stewart scored in the 13th minute for Rio Bueno in their game at Sea-Road Field in Duncans.

Chaddane Linton equalised for Kinloss FC in the 48th minute and Davion Holmes scored the winner in the 73rd minute.

Duanvale FC were gifted the lead in the 22nd minute through an own goal, and Oshane Brown added a second in the 80th minute as they ran out winners over first-time semi-finalists Duncans United.
