Dunbeholden and Harbour View to contest JPL final

Dunbeholden and Harbour View will contest Sunday’s final of the Jamaica Premier League (JPL) at Sabina Park following contrasting return leg semi-final victories on Wednesday night also at Sabina Park.

Dunbeholden who entered their tie 1-0 up against Cavalier, actually lost 4-3, leaving the contest level at 4-4 on aggregate after regulation and extra time.

Dunbeholden then came away 4-2 victors in the penalty shootout to qualify for their first ever Premier League final. Dwayne Atkinson, Kimani Gibbons, Ronaldo Webster and Reggae Boy Richard King were on target for Cavalier, while Atapharoy Bygrave with a double and Kimoni Bailey, scored for Dunbeholden.

Earlier, Harbour View became the first team through to this year's final after ousting Waterhouse 2-1 on aggregate following their 1-1  all draw in the second leg semi-final at Sabina Park.

The “Stars of the East” went into the game with a 1-0 lead but fell behind on the stroke of half time when Shaquille Bradford punished a sloppy defensive United as Waterhouse pulled level on aggregate.

But with six minutes to go, the man who did the damage in the first leg, Nicholas Hamilton struck the decisive blow which pulled Harbour View level on the day but more importantly the lead on aggregate. Harbour View are through to their first premier league final since 2004.
