Mount Pleasant creates history at CONCACAF U13 Championship

Mount Pleasant Football Academy created history by becoming the first Jamaican club to make the quarter-finals of the CONCACAF Under-13 Champions League, following their second win in as many games in in San Jose, Costa Rica. Amarley King scored a brace as the St Ann-based team brushed aside Vancouver 5-1 on Sunday.

King was off the mark as early as the 5th minute, with his second coming six minutes later. Javain Williams then made it 3-0 with a strike in the 22nd minute before Dave Buckley added a fourth four minutes from the break.

However, Kyler Vojvodic pulled one back on the stroke of half-time to make it 3-1 after 30 minutes. But five minutes after the resumption, Tyrese Gowe re-estalished Mount Pleasant's three goal lead, netting in the 35th minute to seal history and a spot in the knockout round. Mount Pleasant will now play CD University on Monday in the final group game.
