Harbour View 'want every single point'
published: Tuesday | December 20, 2005

Adrian Frater, News Editor

WESTERN BUREAU:

RUNAWAY LEADERS Harbour View continue to put daylight between themselves and the other contenders in the 2005-2006 Wray & Nephew National Premier League (NPL) football competition on Sunday night when they clipped Seba United 1-0 at Jarrett Park, courtesy of a Loxley Thomas second half strike.

Thomas scored a minute into the second half when Thomas pounced on a cross from the right flank and with the Seba United defence in disarray, fired past goalkeeper Alrick Henry.

By virtue of their win, which lifted them to 45 points, Harbour View now have an incredible 13 points lead atop the 12-team standings and are beginning to look a safe bet to win the competition, which is being played under a straight league format this year.

For Seba United, they are sitting just outside of the relegation zone in ninth place on 16 points.

"Seba United played a very good game and have nothing to be ashamed about," said Harbour View's coach Donavan Hayles. "However, we wanted it more and we just kept on pressing until we got the goal, which turned out to be the winner."

Despite their comfortable 13-point cushion atop the standings, Hayles said Harbour View are still quite hungry for success and will continue to fight for every single point in every game.

"We are committed to proving that on a league format, we are the best team in Jamaica," said Hayles. "We are not about easing up or slowing down, we want every single point and we basically put the same level of commitment in every single game."

INDISCIPLINE

For losing Seba United coach Heron Grey, the defeat was in a large way due to the indiscipline of his team's main striker Wilfred Smith, who he said failed to show up for the team's Saturday night pre-match camp, which automatically disqualified him from taking the field against Harbour View.

"If we had our full offensive force out there today it would have been a different ballgame because we created more good scoring chances than our opponents," said Grey. "I think the time has come for the club to consider taking serious disciplinary action against Wilfred Smith."
