Title favourites Harbour View surged to what might be an unassailable 10-point lead in the Red Stripe Premier League after edging Montego Bay United 2-1 at the Compound Sunday night.

Goals by Donovan Edwards and Richard Edwards in the third and 70th minutes, respectively, propelled Harbour View to their 14th win from 23 games and unto 48 points.

With 15 games remaining, the ‘Stars of the East’ are 10 clear of the chasing pack, led by defending champions Portmore United on 38 points. They could only muster a 1-1 draw with cellar team Savannah FC at the Ferdie Neita Park.

Caval Blake gave Savannah an eighth-minute lead before Sue-Lee McCalla earned a share of the points for Portmore United in the 29th minute, but they are now left with the mammoth task of overhauling the marauding Harbour View juggernaut.

Vin Blaine, Harbour View’s head coach, said his team came for the three home points and got it, and although they have extended their lead, he is not prepared to celebrate as yet.

“I don’t start count as yet, but it will be hard to beat us. We have no end-of-round final to look to so we have some objectives and we want to win the first three games,” noted Blaine.

For Montego Bay United, it was a disappointing result that saw them slip a spot to fifth, on 34 points, and are now 14 points adrift of the leaders with a lot of catching up to do.

Head coach Dr Dean Weatherly was disappointed with the result, knowing the title is slowly slipping away from their grasp.

“It was a very good game with two quality teams playing against each other and I am disappointed with not coming away with even a point, because Harbour View have extended their lead by some much,” said Weatherly.

“We have intentions of going for the championship and it makes it a little more difficult, but for the one or two mistakes, I am quite pleased with the standard of play,” he added.

The standard of play was good throughout and all three goals were quality strikes in a fairly even encounter.

Harbour View scored in the third minute after a precise through ball by Jermaine Hue released Andre Fagan and his cross was controlled by Donovan Edwards before firing wide of goalkeeper Jacomeno Barrett.

But the visitors responded in style with arguably one of the goals of the season. The powerful-looking Dino Williams pounced on a ball just outside the box and unleashed a venomous shot that whistled past goalkeeper Michaud Barrett before he knew it in the 14th minute.

But Harbour View would not be denied and one of the shortest men on the field, Richard Edwards, popped up to score a rare header, and in fact a rare goal, in the 70th minute to seal a crucial win for the leaders.

Where they failed in the first round, Harbour View succeeded in the second by winning the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) second end-of-round final, and in a convincing fashion.

Goals by Joel Senior in the 16th minute and Jermaine Hue in the 45th ensured that Harbour View, dubbed the ‘Stars of the East’, were the real stars of the east as they defeated the other east Kingston-based RSPL team comfortably. The victory made sure Harbour View bettered their performance of the first end-of-round final, when they were beaten by Boys’ Town.

“I am very pleased with this performance,” a beaming head coach Vin Blaine said after claiming his first title as coach of the team he co-founded. He took over as head coach in the off season.

“The difference between this final and the first round one is that a number of the players who played this evening were not involved then and they really came out and played some good football,” he continued.

Harbour View were totally dominant as they took the action to a tentative Cavalier, as Evan Taylor bossed the midfield and reminded of the reasons why former technical director, Rene Simoes, selected him in 2008 to be part of the 2010 World Cup campaign. Taylor was all action, breaking up attacks and creating opportunities.

For Cavalier, only goalkeeper Gariece McPherson and midfielder Jeffrey Henry seemed able to cope with the Harbour View players. Girvon Brown did not look himself, while Fabian Nethersole added life when he entered the field.

“We would have been satisfied with another goal, but two goals in the end-of-round final is good. I am happy with the result and I am hoping that this will be a good fillip into the third round,” Blaine said of his team which currently enjoys an eight-point lead at the top of the table and harbour thoughts of going all the way.

Cavalier’s David Laylor was disappointed, but positive.

“No one would be happy with losing any game, but getting to the final was good for us,” said Laylor.

His team, he said, suffered from their slow start.

“We started out slowly and gave up two soft goals, but we made some adjustments in the second half.

“That (improved performance) is good for our self-belief and what we have to do now is to keep focused. We have demonstrated that self-belief in the second round and we need to continue that in the third round,” Laylor explained.

If Cavalier are to make a mark in the rest of the competition, Laylor acknowledged that they will have to recruit talent before the transfer window closes at the end of the month. New signings at the club are national representative and former Arnett Gardens player Rohan Reid, and Richard White, a forward from England.

“He (White) is a goalscorer and we could use that. (Claudious) Blackburn has been scoring goals for us, but he needs help. We need to score more goals. Goals win matches,” Laylor stated.

HVIEW SINK HAPLESS CAVALIER FOR ROUND FINAL HONOURS
BY HOWARD WALKER Observer staff reporter walkerh@jamaicaobserver.com
Wednesday, January 30, 2013

HARBOUR View went one better and captured the Red Stripe Premier League Second End-of-Round final with a clinical 2-0 beating of Cavalier on Monday night, and thus pocketed $250,000.

Goals by Reggae Boyz Joel Senior and Jermaine Hue in the 16th and 45th minutes, respectively, were enough to see off a Cavalier team that rarely threatened in the final third.

Harbour View, who lost the First End-of-Round final to Boys’ Town and now hold an eight-point lead atop of the league standing, outplayed their opponent and were deserved winners.

Head coach Vinimore ‘Vin’ Blaine was satisfied with his team’s dominant display and thought they could have scored a few more.
“This game the guys came out and played some very good football, passing the ball around and two goals…I will be satisfied with that. But I think we could have gotten a couple more. I was looking for at least one more in the second half but 2-0 and winning the End-of-Round final is good enough for me,” said Blaine.

Cavalier, who made a return to topflight football after an 18-year absence and surprisingly reached the final, collected $150,000 for the losing effort.
Head coach David Lalor believes his team started out slowly and conceded two soft goals and was always playing catch-up thereafter.
“We made some adjustments in the second half and had a better run, but we were just unable to score,” said Lalor.
He continued: “For us, we saw some strengths and weaknesses in the team and we now know how to put our best football forward going into the third round. This is very encouraging for us going into the third round, knowing that we came out on top in the second round and the players believe in themselves and it is for us now to keep our focus.”

The final, played at the Waterhouse Mini-Stadium, wasn’t the biggest of crowds, mainly because Harbour View and Cavalier don’t really have a huge fan base.

At the kick-off, Cavalier actually bossed possession early on, looking sharp and quicker to the ball than Harbour View.
But in the 16th minute, Evan Taylor, the Fruta Man-of-the-Match, provided a 30-metre defence-splitting pass which Joel Senior latched onto before calmly chipping over the advancing Gariece McPherson in goal.

Then on the stroke of half-time, Taylor, formerly of Reno, was at it again, intercepting a pass before releasing Donovan Edwards down the right flank, and his cross found an unmarked Hue at the back post, and his low shot took a slight deflection on its way in to the side netting.
Cavalier brought on the lively Fabian Nethersole, Chevonne Marsh and Mitchily Waul in pursuit of goals, but that never materialised, as Harbour View, led by Montrose Phinn, Christopher Harvey and Jaron Richards at the back, were never really tested.

Congratulations to our Technical Team, headed by Coach, Vin Blaine assisted by Harold Thomas, Manager, Jacqueline Cowan, Captains, Montrose Phinn, Jermaine Hue, players and everyone on reaching the second End of Round Final with 20 points against Cavalier SC, while consistently performing to be lead the RSPL on 45 points.

JFF PREMIER LEAGUE HISTORY YOU MAY NEED:

Following with a similar landmark in the End of First Round against Boys’ Town FC, our unofficial records indicate it is the fourth time (Coach, Peter Cargill 2001, DV Hayles 2005, Hyde 2006 and Vin Blaine 2012) we have achieved this double in any one season, but thirteenth End Of Round Final appearance overall (Coach, Cargill 2000, 2001(2), 2002, Hayles 2004, 2005(2), Hyde 2006(2), Waldemar Lemos De Olivera 2008, Hayles 2009, and Blaine 2012(2).

Three (3) senior players in Clifton Waugh, Jermaine Hue and Fabian Taylor would have been available for selection at all or most of these games. Waugh at all times when not injured as his overseas time at Rochester Rhinos were at the end of season only, Hue except was away in the MLS and in Sweden on two occasions, Taylor for four years in the MLS and Norway.

Continue striving towards the priority end goal of winning our fourth Premiership title, (Coaches, Cargill 2000, Lennie Hyde 2007 and Hayles 2010).

KSAFA JACKIE BELL KNOCKOUT:

Best of luck also, as 2011 KSAFA Jackie Bell Knockout Champions, in our quest towards a sixth (Coach, Greg Bartley 1996, Cargill 2001, Hyde 2007, 2008 and Hayles 2011) by again reaching the semifinal against Boys’ Town FC on Sunday, February 2.

Coincidentally, in the 2010 semis we won 2-1 over BT to eventually defeat Tivoli and become Champions, last year again we met at this stage but lost 0-2 to BT.

Harbour View continued their good run in the Red Stripe Premier League football competition with a 2-0 victory over Sporting Central Academy at Brancourt on Sunday courtesy of a first-half brace by Donovan Edwards.

The hard-running forward opened the scoring in the 14th minute when Sporting’s goalkeeper Shanchez Lloyd misjudged a tame shot by Edwards, which he thought was going out but ended up rolling into the goal.

Edwards doubled the score in the 39th minute following a good build-up, which set him clear on goal. Edwards made no mistake from the edge of the six-yard box, beating Lloyd at the near post.

It was a good, workmanlike display from the ‘Stars of the East’ who impressed with some patient possession football. Harbour View showed more fight and took charge of the midfield led by Evan Taylor, who showed true class when making some slick passes and crucial tackles.

Tireless running

However, it was Joel Senior, with his tireless running on the right flank – both in attack and defence – who created a big impact on the game that even earned him the admiration of the Sporting supporters.

Senior was playing in his first game for the year after being out for a month with a bruised instep, which he sustained in the first match of second round against Montego Bay United.

The ponytailed player said he was happy for the victory.

“I feel great that we’ve kept a good lead over Portmore United who are second, we just need to keep focused and keep chipping away at it,” Senior said.

He said that he felt good coming into the game after returning from injury.

“I felt great coming into the game today. During my time off I did a lot of gym work, a lot of physical training, so was I feeling good.”

Senior is from Spanish Town in St Catherine. He attended Harrison Prep in the parish, then St George’s College, where he played Colts football. He migrated shortly after to the United States, where he finished his high-school education at Carol High in Washington DC.

He then attended Howard University, where he spent two years, before moving to James Morris University, where he completed a degree in sports and recreation management.

After leaving college, where he impressed playing on the college circuit, he decided to return to Jamaica, the place of his birth, where he joined Harbour View Football Club.

“I returned last July because I wanted to get involved with the national team and so far it has worked out for me,” Senior explained.

The 25-year-old made his Reggae Boy debut in a game against Cuba and has not looked back since, with national head coach Theodore Whitmore making him a core member of his squad that will figure in the upcoming qualifiers for the World Cup finals in Brazil.

ON a cool Monday night and in a charged atmosphere of fun and frolic, leaders Harbour View and fifth-placed Waterhouse battled to an exciting 0-0 draw in a top-billed Red Stripe Premier League game at the Harbour View Mini-stadium.

Though there were no goals, both teams lit up the Monday Night football extravaganza with a fast-paced, high-intensity match that proved a crowd pleaser.

Both coaches were largely satisfied with the delivery of their teams, but still not everything went according to plan.
Harbour View coach Vin Blaine rued the early forced substitutions of three key players who he believed negatively influenced the final outcome.

“I think we did pretty well, but the loss of (Jermaine) Hue, (Eric) Vernan and (Jermie) Lynch didn’t do us any good as those were forced changes of key players, so it affected our game plan,” he said.

“In the first half we had them on the go as we were knocking around the ball pretty well, but I think they (Waterhouse) defended very well… we also had some chances to score, but in the end I thought it was a pretty even game and I believe the result was fair,” said Blaine, the technical co-ordinator of the national women’s programme.

Meanwhile, Waterhouse boss Donovan Duckie said not losing the game kept a short-term goal alive.

“We didn’t want to lose the game as we want to make the end-of-round final as one of our short-term goals… also we want to consolidate our position in the league,” he told the Jamaica Observer at game’s end.

Duckie, a former national youth and a much-travelled Premier League coach, said though his team lacked the killer instinct in the final third, the performance was one worthy of commendation.

“I thought we played well… in terms of transition, I thought we were good and that caused them (Harbour View) not to hurt us… From defence to offence I thought we were explosive, but the difference is that we were not clinical, because if we were, it would have been different,” declared Duckie.

The result keeps Harbour View on top of the overall standings with 39 points, five more that closet rival, defending champion Portmore United. The point earned on Monday keeps the ‘Stars-of-East’ in midpack of round two with 14 points after nine matches.

Waterhouse, for their part, are on 31 points in fifth place on the overall grid, but remain very much in the round two race with 16 points and third.

On Monday, Harbour View appeared more organised going forward with a fluency masterminded in the main by Hue, Lynch, Vernan, Nicholas Beckett, Ranique Muir and Kemeel Wolfe.

They came close to breaking the deadlock as early as the 11th minute, but the bombardment lacked teeth in the final delivery.
In the 27th minute, the slender and towering Lynch had a chance when he burst down the right side, but his 20-yard shot trimmed grass on its wayward track.

With 38 minutes on the clock, Harbour View looked certain of breaking down a stubborn Waterhouse defence. With a searching pass from the belly of midfield, Beckett found Donovan Edwards sneaking into the 18-yard box, but the latter’s firm diving header lacked deception and Richard McCallum gleefully handled.

Waterhouse responded a minute later through team elder Weston Forrest, whose swerving and dipping shot from just
outside initially troubled goalie Michaud Barrett.

The charismatic, Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson, soared to the spotlight with a clever swivel, but the resulting shot crashed into the horizontal to bring the half to a close.

In a haze of swift, fanned out attacks, the crowd was kept hooked, but still they hungered for goals.

In a promising move in the 54th minute, Ranique Muir’s lunging help-on from eight yards went straight to McCallum.
Anderson, the league’s leading scorer, had a couple of forays forward but it was not to be his night as his efforts throughout have gone either high or wide.

TEAMS:

Harbour View — Michaud Barrett, Eric Vernan (Romario Campbell 45th), Christopher Harvey, Kemar Lawrence, Montrose Phinn, Jermaine Hue (Jaron Richards 17th), John-Ross Edwards, Nicholas Beckett, Kemeel Wolfe, Donovan Edwards and Jermie Lynch (Ranique Muir 45th).

REAL Salt Lake have selected Jamaican international Lovel Palmer in Stage 2 of the Major League Soccer Re-Entry Draft to strengthen their defence and midfield for the new season.

The 28-year-old made 19 appearances (15 times in the starting line-up) for Portland Timbers last season.

PALMER… made 19 appearances for Portland Timbers last season

Real Salt Lake will now have one week to extend a genuine contract to the past student of St Elizabeth Technical High School or let him go.

Signing with the MLS in 2010 to join Houston Dynamo and moving to Portland Timbers in 2011 and 2012, Palmer has three goals and two assists in a total 79 career appearances in United States’ top league.

A headliner for Harbour View FC from 2000-2010, he had a stint with Trinidad & Tobago’s W Connection in 2004 before returning to the ‘Stars of the East’.

Palmer was also a member of Jamaica’s Gold Cup squad in 2005 and has so far made 29 caps for the senior Reggae Boyz.
Born in Mandeville, he is more likely to play a midfield role for Real Salt Lake if negotiations are finalised, since Tony Beltran has under lock and key the right back position.

LEADERS Harbour View missed a glorious chance to extend their lead to nine points atop the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) after being held to a 1-1 draw by Tivoli Gardens on Monday night.

Harbour View started six clear of Portmore United and Boys’ Town, but are now only seven points ahead in what could have been a massive lead.

The ‘Stars of the East’ inched to 30 points from 14 games, while Tivoli stayed ninth with 19.

“Definitely, we wanted three points, but that’s football. We got some half-chances and with some luck, could have got it, but when you play teams like Tivoli they’re going to give you a hard time, no matter how bad they are playing,” said head coach Vin Blaine.

Jermaine Hue had given home team Harbour View a 58th-minute lead from a free kick that dipped under the outstretched hands of goalkeeper Edsel Scott. Earlier, Hue saw a similar shot diverted by a diving Kasai Hinds.

But Harbour View’s lead would be short-lived as towering defender Damion Gordon nodded home in the 61st from a corner.

Despite their territorial dominance, Harbour View could have left empty-handed had it not been for two fine saves from goalkeeper Devon Haughton.
With coach Glendon Bailey bringing on Navion Boyd, Dane Kelly and live wire Akeem Thenstead together in the 57th, Tivoli had a pep in their steps.
Boyd latched onto a ball just inside the area and his low goal-bound shot was brilliantly turned around for a corner in the 65th.

Then, with 17 minutes of normal time left, Kelly found himself with only the goalkeeper to beat, but his lobbed effort was saved by Haughton.

Harbour View — Devon Haughton, Clifton Waugh, Montrose Phinn, Robert Williams, Eric Vernan, Evan Taylor, John Ross Edwards, Kemeel Wolfe (Kimorlee Brissett 84th), Jermaine Hue, Roland Dean (Fabian Taylor 77th), Damion Harewood (Jermie Lynch 64th).

HVFC striker Roland Dean netted the RSPL’s first hat-trick of the season — all with assists from Jermaine Hue — as Harbour View slammed Savannah, 7-0, at home on Wednesday to move six points clear after second-placed Portmore fell 2-1 to Cavalier.

Dean scored in the 19th, 34th and 47th minutes and was supported by John-Ross Edwards (77th and 89th), Hue and (66th) and Kemeel Wolfe (41st). The win carried them to 29 points — six more than Portmore and seven ahead of Boys’ Town.

Dean fired the hosts ahead after latching onto a slick through ball from Hue and shooting past Gavin Barrett. Two minutes later, Hue slipped a similar pass to the speedy striker on the left, but Dean dragged his shot just wide of the upright.

However, he had his second when he collected another pass from Hue atop the box and beat Barrett with a low strike. Minutes before the break, Wolfe capitalised on a poor clearance and scored from inside the area.

Two minutes after the restart, Dean secured his treble, and Harbour View’s fourth, when he bundled home a Hue corner kick after Barrett failed to hold on.

Hue made it 5-0 from a free kick at the edge of the box, despite slipping as he struck the ball, while Edwards sealed the issue with two well-taken strikes in the last 12 minutes.

At Ferdie Neita Park, Cavalier were led by Troyland Williams’ 30th-minute strike. Portmore equalised through Andrew Vanzie, but Cladius Blackburn struck for Cavalier five minutes from time.

Harbour View –– Devon Haughton, Nicholas Beckett, Clifton Waugh, Robert Williams, Jaron Richards, John-Ross Edwards, Kemeel Wolfe, Jermaine Hue (Romario Campbell 75th), Evan Taylor, Damian Harwood (Fabian Taylor 61st), Roland Dean (Ranique Muir 76th).

HVFC ended their five day Under 13 and 16 Cayman Islands tour on a winning note, as the KSAFA Under 13 Kingston Champions completed a unbeaten 3 game series (3-0,3-1,3-1) with a 3-1 victory over hosts the Academy Sports Club at their newly renovated complex.
Goalscorers are Rashawn McKinnon 3, Gasford James Jnr. 3, Tajani Fairclough 2 and Rennato Campbell 1.

After the HVFC Under 15 team rebounded to defeat the Academy Sports Club Under 16 team by a similar 3-1 scoreline as Stephen Barnett scored a hat-trick, to add to his goal in each of the first 2 games (2-0, 1-3,3-1) to register 5 goals overall. Richard Byfield scored 1 goal.

The HVFC Under 13 and 16 teams collected the inaugural Academy Sports Club Friendship Cup trophies for winning 3 and 2 games respectively.

The youngsters visited the Dolphin Cove on Thursday, went to school with the host children on Friday, fun time on Saturday and also to Church on Sunday to round of a new cultural exchange and building of friendships for life.

The group returned home on Monday morning, November 5th, at 8am.

 

Harbour View’s rich vein of form continued following a 2-1 over Arnett Gardens in Red Stripe Premier League action at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex yesterday.

The Stars of the East, who headed into the encounter as the only team assured of a spot in the first end-of-round final, were led to victory on goals from forward Jeremie Lynch and midfielder Nicholas Beckett in the 12th and 21st minutes, respectively.

Arnett’s consolation was netted by forward Kamal Malcolm in the 79th minute.

“It was a fairly easy game for us today, except for the latter stages where we lapsed and allowed them to score,” said Harbour View assistant coach, Harold Thomas, who sat in for head coach, Vin Blaine, who is away with the national beach football team.

“Having qualified for the end-of-round final, it was easy to be complacent, but we had a chat before the match and credit to the team, it did not happen today.

“We needed to focus on amassing points, and each player tried to give their all to make it happen,” he added.

Goalkeeping error

The game, which was brought forward to a 3 p.m. kick-off from its regular start time of 5 p.m., saw Harbour View taking the lead on a goalkeeping error from Damion Hyatt, who, after failing to collect cleanly, gifted Lynch a tap home from close range.

Motivated by the goal, Harbour View then went on to add a second through a free kick.

Hue lined up to take the shot with his trademark left foot, but it was Beckett who fired with his right, wronging Hyatt in the process.

With influential midfielder Lamar Nelson somewhat missing in action, Arnett Gardens struggled to create real chances with the otherwise impressive Malcolm, who scored five minutes after he came on, providing the only bright spark.

Malcolm received a through pass at the top of the area before calmly chipping his shot over the advancing goalkeeper, Michaud Barrett.

“We played poor, very slow and keep on making the same mistakes over and over,” said Arnett coach Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis.
