Semi-finalists decided in Tier II football

LLANDILO, Westmoreland — The semi-finalists have been decided in the Jamaica Football Federation's Tier II play-offs after Saturday's final set of first-round of games.

Tuscany Warriors of Westmoreland, Brown's Town of St Ann, and Goshen of St Elizabeth joined Racing United of St Catherine in the semi-finals set for Saturday, with the winners advancing to the Tier II competition due to start later this month.

In Saturday's semi-finals Racing United play Tuscany Warriors while Brown's Town and Goshen will meet in the other game, with the winners contesting the final set for March 25.

Tuscany Warriors beat nine-man Sandy Bay United 3-1 to top Group D with 13 points; Brown's Town got the point they needed from a 0-0 draw against Ujama CC to top Group B; while Goshen FC edged Toll Gate FC 1-0 to take Group C honours.

At Llandilo Sports Complex on Saturday, Tuscany Warriors wrapped up Group D with an easy win over Sandy Bay United who failed to win any of the games but had held the Westmoreland team to a 1-1 draw in the first round.

Bilton Campbell gave Tuscany Warriors the lead in the 13th minute and Ricardo Winter made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time when he scored in the 45th minute.

Rushane Graham then made it 3-0 in the 54th minute before Melvin Donalds scored a consolation goal for Sandy Bay in time added on in the second half.

Sandy Bay United finished the game with nine players after Shevoy Downie picked up his second yellow card in the 31st minute, seven minutes after his first, and Morlando Johnson was shown a straight red in the 78th minute.

In the other Group D game Reggae Youths beat Harmony FC 5-1 at Irwin High, a small measure of revenge after losing their first-round game 1-0.

Denroy Miller scored in the 14th minute for Goshen in their win over Toll Gate FC, reversing the first-round results.
