BEST & WORST

WEEK 16

- DANIEL WHEELER Staff Reporter

BEST CHRISTOPHE­R PEARSON

Cavalier midfielder Christophe­r Pearson made a great impression in their 2-0 win over Harbour View. His two assists helped them end their three-game winless run. The Kingston College schoolboy is playing his part in his team’s play-off push, and could have an opportunit­y to contribute on a regional scale as the Concacaf Caribbean Club Competitio­n draws closer.

VERE UNITED

Thanks to an Arnett Gardens own goal and a Romaine Plummer game winner, Vere United got their first multi-goal game of the season in their 2-1 win. With six games to go, Vere United are in 10th place with 14 points, seven points outside sixth place. It is an important win as they look to sneak into the play-offs. But, if they are to complete the turnaround, there is now no room for error.

WORST RONALDO WEBSTER

Cavalier have not had a sending off to deal with in quite a while, but old habits returned in their 2- 0 win over Harbour View. Ronaldo Webster was the culprit on this occasion, with an elbow to the face of a Harbour View player that saw him get his marching orders. It was too late in the game to make any difference but it will leave him unavailabl­e for their game against Vere United on Sunday.

MONTEGO BAY UNITED’S POINTS TOTAL

Five points. That is all Montego Bay United have accumulate­d after 16 games. They are winless in their last 13, including their 2-0 defeat to Tivoli Gardens on Sunday. Based on their form and their morale, they do not look like a team that can finish the season, at least in double digit points, with six games to play.

ARNETT GARDENS

An own goal from Arnett Garden’s Earl Simpson turned the tide against them in their match against Vere United. Romaine Plummer then completed the turnaround in a 2- 1 defeat, putting them seven points behind leaders Dunbeholde­n. While their play- off position remains solid, the defeat could have an effect on their chances of getting into the top two and a first- round bye.
