Powered by ‘Tuffy’ – Anderson’s brace gives Waterhouse first RSPL win

first_img – Rivoli 3-4 Boys’ Town – Tivoli Gardens 2-0 Harbour View – Montego Bay 1-1 Humble Lion – Portmore 1-0 Cavalier Today’s Game: Waterhouse registered their first win of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season after scoring a convincing 3-0 win over the University of the West Indies (UWI) at the Drewsland mini-stadium yesterday. Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson (38th and 81st) led the way with a goal in each half, sandwich by another strike from captain Damarley Samuels (45+2). However, the game ended on a sour note for the hosts as midfielder Romario Campbell was shown the red card in time added. Although not satisfied with the performance, Waterhouse coach Calvert Fitzgerald said the players showed they wanted the ‘monkey off their back’. “I am feeling good (for win) … but I am not pleased with how the team performed. We were a bit lazy, and the coordination wasn’t what I want. “But I credit them for endeavour. They wanted to win, and they showed the ambition to get the monkey off their back, so I am happy for that but not totally happy with how the team performed,” he insisted. The home team took a while to control a spirited UWI team and get the game under their control. They almost took the lead on the half-hour, but Evan Taylor, who had a Man of the Match performance, saw his shot hit the post and roll across the face of the goal. Anderson also came close but Amal Knight was equal to his low strike moments later. They eventually broke the deadlock when Anderson’s header squeezed through Knight’s legs and over the line. The home team continued to dominate, and Samuels made it 2-0 in added time with a low, fierce drive from 20 yards. Waterhouse were again the better team after the break, and they sealed the win nine minutes from time when Anderson got on to the end of Kemar Seivwright’s cross and fired under Knight to make it 3-0. In added time, Campbell was shown the red card for a retaliatory tackle on a UWI player. UWI’s coach, Marcel Gayle, was making his first return as an opposing coach to the club where he coached for more than 15 years.

The siren was acquired through Community Awareness and Emergency Response organizations. Councilman Keith Hanks, who said he never heard the first test, will have his ears perked up tonight. “It wasn’t loud,” Hanks said. “I’ll be at 10th and Vernon for the dedication of an (Azusa) Light and Water building and listening on ham radio. “I certainly hope it succeeds,” he said. AZUSA — Everybody deserves a second chance. City officials will retest a siren tonight that gave a disappointing performance during its inaugural test in June. Some observers said the $20,000 siren, installed to warn residents of impending disasters, came off more like the sound of a saw, a computer fan or a Stanley Steemer carpet cleaner. Some say they never heard it during its two-minute test. City Manager Fran Delach said the siren still needs to be louder. As a matter of routine, the siren will be tested twice a year, in April — Earthquake Preparedness Month — and October — Fire Prevention Month, to remind residents to check smoke alarms and provide adequate brush clearance if living next to the foothills. City officials hope tonight’s test does not cause a panic. “We are asking people not to call 9-1-1,” said city spokesman Martin Quiroz. In a true emergency, residents would also see and hear emergency vehicles and personnel evacuating the area, Quiroz said.
