Portmore United, Tivoli score wins in RSPL

By December 08, 2019

Defending champions Portmore United and Tivoli Gardens scored victories on Sunday during round 16 of the Red Stripe Premier League.

In the game played at the Constant Spring Stadium, goals from Rondee Smith and Corey Burke handed Portmore a 2-0 victory over the struggling Molynes United who was suffering their eighth loss of the season.

Smith put Portmore ahead in the 11th minute and Burke’s 86th-minute strike secured the win for the defending champions who leapfrogged Molynes to go seventh in the league.

Molynes, who have not tasted victory since October 6 when they defeated Mount Pleasant FC, has now fallen to eighth in the 12-league league.

Tivoli, meanwhile, edged Dunbeholden courtesy of Jermaine Johnson’s 52nd-minute penalty at the Royal Lakes Complex in Portmore.

UWI FC and Harbour View FC played to a 1-1 stalemate at Mona.

Jabari Hylton put UWI ahead on the 21st minute only for his goal to be cancelled out by Jevoun Bascoe in minute 56.

Vere United and Arnett Gardens also played to a 1-1 draw at the Wembley Centre of Excellence, after Romone Plummer’s 86th-minute goal cancelled out Vishinul Harris’ 72nd-minute opener.

The action continues on Monday night when Cavalier FC host Humble Lion at Stadium East in Kingston.

    West Brom's slump continued with a shock 1-0 defeat at home to struggling Stoke City, with the Championship leaders now without a win in six league games.

    The Baggies were boosted by being able to give Grady Diangana his first start in over a month, but he lasted only four minutes and the hosts failed to make the most of their chances as Tyrese Campbell's early goal proved decisive.

    West Brom gave the ball away in midfield and Stoke pounced in the ninth minute, as Nick Powell released Tom Ince and he squared to Campbell, who beat Sam Johnstone from 12 yards.

    Campbell was then forced off injured a 14 minutes later and Stoke unsurprisingly struggled in attack without him, though West Brom failed to get past Jack Butland at the other end, with Matheus Pereira guilty of a couple of suspect misses.

    Victory lifts Stoke four points above the bottom three, while the Baggies remain only a point clear of Leeds United at the summit and five above third-place Fulham, with their game in hand now gone.

    Barcelona have signed Rey Manaj from Albacete for an initial €700,000, with the former Inter striker agreeing a contract until June 2023.

    The fee could rise by €2million in performance-based bonuses over the next three and a half years, with 22-year-old Manaj set to line-up for Barca B in the third tier.

    After starting his senior career with Cremonese, the Albania international – who has a €50m release clause in his Barca contract – moved to Inter and made six appearances for the club during a stint that included loans to Pescara, Pisa and Granada.

    Manaj joined Albacete in July 2018 on loan with an obligation to buy. He scored nine goals in 39 league appearances for the Segunda Division side.
