FOOTBALL: Arnett Gardens coach happy with team's performance despite Humble Lion draw
Arnett Gardens' coach Jerome Waite says he is pleased with his team's performance despite their 1-1 draw against Humble Lion in their first leg semifinal of the Red Stripe Premier League last night.
The match was played at the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex.
Waite says the Humble Lion team defended stoutly and they played with eleven men behind the ball for most of the game.
He says this interrupted the flow of his team.
Meanwhile, Humble Lion's coach Donovan Duckie, says he was happy for the draw playing away from home.
Andre Clennon gave Arnett the lead in the third minute when he netted home from close range.
Humble Lion’s captain Woolery Wolf, scored the equaliser from the penalty spot in the 40-second minute.
This after the ball was handled by Arnett's defender Vishuinul Harris inside the 18-yard box.
Arnett Gardens created several opportunities in the second half but were kept at bay by solid defending by Humble Lion.
The return leg will be played next Monday at the Effortville Community Centre in Clarendon.
The other semifinal encounter between Waterhouse and defending champions Montego Bay United will be played tonight.
The match will take place at the Drewsland Mini Stadium in Kingston starting at nine o’clock.
