Jabloteh move on to W Connection

 Midfielders Jean-Luc Rochford and Micah Lewis scored on either side of the break on Thursday to lead San Juan Jabloteh to a 2-0 playoff win over St Ann’s Rangers to advance into the quarter-final round of the 2014 Lucozade Sport Goal Shield.

Jabloteh’s reward is a quarter-final spot today against W Connection in the 5 p.m. First match of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium. North East Stars, the 2010 winners, will also meet Police FC in another quarter-final from 7 p.m.

On Thursday night, Rangers trailed as early as the 5th minute when Richford put in a well-placed free-kick from outside the penalty area to put Jabloteh into a 1-0 advantage. The shotclipped the inside of the upper corner, before nestling into back of goalkeeper Akel Clarke’s net.

Two minutes earlier, Clarke was spared when Neil Mitchell squandered on a one-on-one, and two minutes inside the second period Kerry Baptiste’s header off Rochford’s corner, crashed off the Rangers crossbar. But in the 61st minute, Clarke was beaten again for a 2-0 Jabloteh cushion when Lewis received a Baptiste pass, ran into the area, and finished low into the right corner. Clarke, however, was brilliant in the 76th minute, pushing over-bar an ambitious Jamal Spencer strike from outside the area.

    On the opposite end, Jabloteh’s 18-year-old keeper Shundelle Myers was making his first senior appearance due to injury to regular number one Shane Mattis. Myers was forced into action once when tipping wide a Jelani Peters free-kick in the 24th minute. He later watched a Kadeem Corbin effort go wide in the 88th minute.
