Frustrations build at Waterhouse

first_imgThe frustration at Waterhouse Football Club in this season’s Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) continues to build, as they went down 2-0 to Reno in an uninspiring performance at their Drewsland base. It was their fifth loss from 10 home matches.However, Coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey said it was not time to press the panic button as he believes there is more than adequate time to save their season.”It was lacklustre. I didn’t expect a lacklustre performance like this. We didn’t even look like we turned up to play until the secondhalf,” Bailey told the Gleaner.”But there are still a lot of points and a lot of games, so we can’t give up and it’s too early to hit the alarm bells. I don’t think the alarm bells should start ringing as yet. Yes, we want points and you want to assure yourself, but time is on our side. We just have to look in ourselves and see where we go from here. But as soon as we get some players off injury and get the new players coming in you will see a different team,” Bailey sought to assure.Reno looked dangerous from the onset and it was no surprise when Kavar Walker steered home Javed Richardson’s cross from 12 yards after 17 minutes of play.WASTED GIFTWaterhouse struggled to get themselves together, but DeAndre Brown rattled the bar from 18 yards of a low Irvino English cross and Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson wasted a gift after goalkeeper Dennis Taylor landed a spot-kick at his feet just outside the area, firing over the unguarded goal.However, when the Waterhouse defence failed to clear a ball from their area, it eventually fell to the prolific Craig Foster, who spun and fired pass Diego Haughton in the Waterhouse goal.The hosts improved slightly after the break, but still looked disorganised and lacked creativity for the most part. But while Anderson forced a good save out of Taylor midway the half, his opportunity in the final minute summed up his and Waterhouse’s play, as, with only Taylor to beat he dragged a tame shot wide from 12 yards.Reno’s Technical Director Wendell Downswell said the team’s aim is to win six straight and climb out of the bottom half of the standings.”We are on track in the new year,” Downswell said.In other games, Portmore and Montego Bay United played to a 1-1 draw. UWI stopped Harbour View 1-0, Arnett Gardens beat Boys’ Town 2-1 in the Trench Town derby, Tivoli edged Jamalco 1-0 and Humble Lion defeated Maverley-Hughenden 2-0.Montego Bay lead the table with 39 points, but that was cut to one by Tivoli (38). UWI are third with 35 points, followed by Humble Lion on 34, Portmore with 33, and Arnett on 28.Yesterday’s ResultsPortmore 1 – 1 Montego BayUWI 1 – 0 Harbour ViewBoys’ Town 1-2 Arnett GardensJamalco 0 – 1 TivoliWaterhouse 0 – 2 RenoHumble Lion 2 – 0 Maverley-Hughendenlast_img read more
