Cavalier Soccer Club are off to a wonderful start with two wins from as many starts in the Red Stripe Premier League and coach David Laylor attributes this to a more disciplined approach and team work.
The Cavalier team shocked high-powered Waterhouse 1-0 at Drewsland on Sunday to follow up on another huge victory, against Portmore United. Those results pushed Cavalier to six points, the same as Humble Lion, but the latter enjoy a better goal difference.
Waterhouse paid dearly for offloading Girvon Brown to Cavalier as the player struck the all-important goal in time added.
The silence was deafening as Waterhouse, with their quality attacking players, were expected to pick up another three points at home, to add to the three gained in the previous week's 2-0 win against Boys' Town.
However, that was not to be as they came up against a disciplined Cavalier team that also had four former Waterhouse players in their line-up.
"It's a pleasant win. We stuck to our passing game and came away with a late goal," Cavalier's coach Laylor pointed out at game's end.
After a 17-year absence from top-flight football, Cavalier returned last season and stayed up. Now they are off to a dream start.
"We are better prepared to come up against any opponent in the league. It was a good victory, the guys dug deep and played the passing game. However, finishing has been plaguing us from last season," Laylor said.
Brown, who scored the decisive goal, was a very happy man.
"Since I left Waterhouse I am just happy," he said. "To miss a chance then come back to score the winning goal for my team is a great feeling; words can't explain.
"We have been training hard and that is coming out. We will continue to take it in stride, game by game," Brown said.
