There seems to be no stopping English harbor in the ABFA second division.
At home against Glanvilles on Wednesday, Harbour won 3-0 after a slow start unlike its previous two games where goals, sixteen, came in a flurry and early.
Glanvilles, a usual tough customer looked half its normal self and Harbour took full advantage with a little luck going to the home team for the first goal.
Howard Monteque opened the scoring in the 31st minute, an auspicious strike to say the least, a la Kerry “Arab” Skepple for the national team against Haiti in the World Cup qualifier weeks ago.
His first strike at goal from the left side, inside the 18 slipped through the hands of the Glanvilles keeper and into the back of the nets.
Harbour took a 1-0 advantage into the break before Monteque doubled the lead five minutes after intermission.
And what a sensational strike it was that time around.
The lanky striker latched onto a through pass from Akeem Miller on the edge of the 18.
Running to his right, Monteque gracefully slotted home with the left foot catching the Glanvilles keeper totally off-guard, 2-0 Harbour.
Four minutes later, Harbour was restricted to ten men after Ian Hector picked up a straight red for violent conduct, retaliating to a push from a Glanvilles defender.
On the Hector red card Harbour coach Ian Piper stated:
“That was very disappointing.”
“We were ahead.
“We cannot afford to have players sent off under these circumstances.
“The game could have changed after that.
Well the game did change,but in Harbour’s favour.
After Glanvilles squandered a number of opportunities, Nigel “Skinny Man” Graham iced the game in the 78th minute.
Graham scored from an offside position but got the benefit of the call by the officials and Harbour came away with the 3-0 victory.
Harbour is now in sole position in first place on 24 points, three ahead of Westham.
In other matches in the second division, Police lost it’s eight straight game.
The Lawmen went down 0-1 to ABAYA to remain winless for the season with a 0-8 record while the game between Black Panthers and Hatton Stars at King George was postponed.
Both teams turned up in similar color jerseys.
That game will be played on Friday at the same venue.
