Jamaica’s men have taken sole leadership of the CAC Qualifiers points table with six points after getting by Puerto Rico three nil. Jamaica soaked up the pressure for most of the first quarter that ended goalless before getting the breakthrough in minute 24 from Brandon Clarke. The goal was set up by a tantalizing counter-attacking play started by George McGlashen who cleaned up after goalkeeper Kardiff Davidson brilliantly saved the Puerto Ricans penalty corner shot. Oshane Haseley gave the Jamaican’s a two nil halftime lead after finished off a skilfully executed backline dribble by Captain Kishawn White.
The Puerto Ricans failed to break down Jamaica’s resolute defence led by the commentary team’s man of the match Duvaughn Henlon as the visitors slumped to their second defeat.
Kemar Mitchell killed the game off as a contest in the 53rd minute with a well worked penalty corner between himself and Charles Burton.
The Jamaican’s will next be in action on Thursday against Guatemala, while Puerto Rico take on Panama on Wednesday.
