In the battle for early supremacy at the Tony Spaulding Complex both top of the table contenders produced another high quality epic encounter that gripped the large stadium audience as well as islandwide television viewers and radio listeners for more than 90 minutes, in sudden death extra-time the lethal right foot of Kevin Wilson was enough to bring the orchestrated schemes of both teams to a climax. Arnett were crowned champions.

The 96th minute cracker was a treat for all football enthusiast near and far from the venue as the weeklong hype lived up to its billing and in many areas surpassed it. Three stunning goals punctuated the tense feeling permeating the newly beautified stadium a fitting arena for the Leagues leading gladiators to showcase their talent.

Raw talent abounded from the first minute as players went in search of ‘ first blood’ by trying to establish midfield dominance that created dribbles, passes, one-two combinations, infringements with resulting heart stopping freekicks when the rivals failed, testing long range right and left footed screamers were driven with wicked intentions goalwards as the two former national custodians displayed their acrobatic manouevers to the delight of the fans.

2000 MVP Fabian Davis broke the deadlock after 19 minutes when he converted another 20 yard curling Classic to evade the diving Leeroy Gray inside his near post to lead 1-0. The cry of ‘Arnett,Arnett’ rang out as the Red and Black brigade charged forward through Kwame Richardson, Walter Boyd, Kevin Wilson, Jonathan Williams and Cornel Chinsue initially and the counter-attacking ball possesssion through young Sean Fraser, Jermaine Hue, Jomo Gordon, Marvin Morgan and the diminutive Daniel Shaw who was to produce a beauty of a goal in the 41st minute when his one-two with Fraser let fly a extraordinary blast from 34 yards under pressure to rocket against the far upright hit the back of the diving keeper and lodge in the net to the defeaning silence around the ground disturbed only by jubilant Harbour View Supporters who had travelled to the West Kingston venue.

The score justifiably remained at 1-1 at Halftime.

The second half was as intense as the first as a double substitution at the break of forwards Jomo Gordon and Dino Williams for Nicholas McCreath and Fabian Taylor launched more attacks against the increased presence in the other penalty box of Kevin Wilson and Walter Boyd, still no goals came but immense tension kept fans riveted at the edge of their seats punctuated by bits of individuals flair,long dribbles and defensive interceptions made the drama buildup even more intreging. It was not over after 90 minutes as the avid football connoisseur was heard to plea for extra-time as they yearned for more of the beautiful game.

Their wish was granted for six more pulsating minutes, then the Man of the moment Kevin ‘Pele’ Wilson claimed his territory with a remarkable strike to bring the curtains down of the first round as the new sponsors presented their novel new look trophy to Arnett Gardens.

Congratulations Arnett, extremely well done Harbour View – Football won handsomely today, give us more please.

‘The View’ refuses to loose at Arnett in comeback 2-2 draw.
Harbour View marched into the end of first round Finals next Sunday at a venue to be announced when we played to an exciting 2-2 draw away at Arnett Gardens yesterday

to set up a repeat game between both teams a week later.

All three teams Harbour View ,Arnett and Hazard will end the round on 24 points each, the superior goal difference of Harbour View (17) followed by Arnett (11) then Hazard (10) means Hazard once again has failed by the narrowest of margins to qualify for another end of round finals, three in the last three years following their 3-0 victory over Seba United yesterday at the Ferdie Neita Complex

The first strike on goal by Jomo Gordon rocketed of the crossbar and he would score for Harbour View on minute 39 to level the score as Cornel Chinsue had fired Arnett into the lead 10 minutes earlier.

Two second half strikes by former league MVP’s firstly Arnett’s Fabian Davis from the penalty spot in the 67th minute then the magnificent goalscoring form of midfielder Jermaine Hue scored another freekick from 30 yards out in minute 80 to make it his fourth goal in three games over the last seven days.

In the opening game both Under 21 teams played to a one all scoreline.






Led by two goals each from Jermaine Hue and Dino Williams in addition to strikes by Jomo Gordon, Craig Stewart, Ali Rose, Nicholas McCreath and Leon Gordon pushed Harbour View to the top of the League Standings with 23 points the same as Arnett Gardens but with a superior goal difference of 17 (27 goals for, 10 goals against) by contrast to Arnett with a goal difference of 11 (20 goals for, 9 goals against).
It was one-way traffic all afternoon at the Compound after the early exchanges when the visitors attacked twice ending dangerously close to scoring but they would have to wait until the 80th minute after the hosts had scored six goals.

Then the goalscoring machine was cranked up once more in the last five minutes to score another three goals in remarkable fashion –

87th minute – Nicholas McCreath struck from a dribble between two defenders from the top of the box, slidding wide of the keeper.

89th minute – Dino Williams blasts a torrid right-footer from the 17 yard mark.

91st minute – Reserve goalkeeper come centre-forward Leon Gordon would not be denied his day in the sun, so when Ali Roses’ drive was parried by the keeper he dived in foot first to register his first Premier League goal as a outfield player.

Smiles all around were to be seen by the Harbour View supporters as they all look forward to the penultimate game on Sunday against Arnett Gardens away.




Tomorrow BULL BAY plays TIVOLI GARDENS at the Compound.

An intense battle ensued at the beginning of the game as both teams surged forward with the aim of getting the opening goal. The honour went convincingly to Tivoli as the smooth striker Roland Dean sneaked in between defenders to score at the near post.

One became two soon after, when the bustling Christopher Nicholas slipped behind defenders to drive home a 13 yard pile-driver past Leeroy Gray, establishing a strong 2 – 0 advantage after 30 minutes.

Jomo Gordons’ header against the post in addition to other efforts by the Harbour View attacking force, failed to dent the deficit.

The second half saw a brand new spirit of attack-until-you-die style football from “The View” as Coach Donovan Hayles delivered a rousing motivational speech that energized the soldiers into battle. The war of attacking football that was to unfold was a display rarely seen in local football history, memories of the epic battles of the 1970’s and the best of the 1980’s against Boys Town came flooding back as Harbour View scintillating style of one touch topped of with magnificent finishing at pace, was how the team overcame the challenge of coming from two goals down.

Substitutes Christopher Jackson, Nicholas McCreath and Dino Williams all contributed heavily in securing victory as Daniel Shaw finished off a McCreath square, then McCreath finished accurately from a Jackson grounder. Jermaine Hues’ magnificent Free kick left goalkeeper Edsel Scott injured and the Tivolites heart-broken as he scored the third but the coup de grace was left to the death in the 90th minute for new recruit to control Dino Williams’ pass from the right to fire home from 27 yards out over the stunned goalkeeper for an historic win.

Tumultuous applause rang out at Tivoli by the jubilant Harbour View supporters as praised was heaped on all the players who hugged each other and great comfort in victory to Daniel Shaw and coach Donovan Hayles both of whom were sent off the field earlier.

All Harbour View supporters congratulates the team and wishes the spirit shown on Sunday grows from strength to strength as the team progresses, well done Harbour View –

“The Spirit lives on”.

Hatrick man Jomo Gordon slipped by goalkeeper Allen Whittacker to slot home the first of three strikes that followed in minutes 14 and 19 to register the first hatrick this season. The wet surface made attacking by two very competent attacking units extremely easy to please the crowd, scoring at regular instances throughout between the continuous showers.Patrick Beech responded for Rivoli before halftime (37th) then substitute Nicholas McCreath scored from a one-two combination with Fabian Taylor in minute 67. Rivoli again fought back to score in minute 72 with a header from Shawn Simpson only to see the dominant Harbour View midfielder Daniel Shaw convert another Fabian Taylor assist in minute 87 to close the seven goal spree, leaving Harbour View temperarily at the top of the Premier League tables with 17 points.
