Hot Women’s knockout semi-finals today

first_imgThe Jamaica Football Federation (JFF)-Sports Development Foundation (SDF) Women’s knockout semi-finals are on today at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Trench Town. In the first of the double header, many-time champions Barbican FC will face a stern test from Los Perfectos FC, starting at 3 p.m. Then in the second game, last year’s beaten knockout finalist Waterhouse FC, meet G.C. Foster College at 5:30 p.m. Spectators could be in for a treat as the four top teams in women’s football will be in action. Barbican have won the knockout trophy for the last six years and will be looking for another hold. However, they will face a tough opponent in Los Perfectos. “This is going to be an interesting clash,” Barbican’s long-serving coach, Charles Edwards, told The Gleaner yesterday. “They (Los Pefectos) have some players who we have played against and beaten while they were at other clubs. And they will certainly be coming to beat us,” Edwards said. “We have a quality team and have prepared well for this game. We will go there to execute our game plan,” headded. Barbican will be looking to captain Alicia James, Latoya Panton, Tashana Vincent, and Rochelle Bryan to take them into the final. Duane James, head coach of Los Perfectos, is fully aware of the strength and history of his opponent. “We have played well against Barbican over the years. We have the players and the firepower to compete with them this time,” James disclosed. James is relying on former national players such as Shakira Duncan, Venecia Reid, and Sasha Campbell to upset the strong Barbican team. The other game between Waterhouse and G.C. Foster should also be a competitive and close affair. Both teams met in the Women’s league group stage last month and the game ended in a 0-0 stalemate. Now, a winner must come from the game. So it could be down to the team that is better prepared for some gruelling football. WELL PREPAREDlast_img read more
