KINGSTON, Jamaica – A spot in the 2020 Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League is in sight for Portmore United of Jamaica after downing AS Capoise of Haiti 1-0 on Matchday Two of the 2019 Flow Concacaf Caribbean Club Championship on Tuesday night at Stadium East in Kingston, Jamaica

The win keeps Portmore atop the 2019 FCCCC table with six points, two points ahead of second-place Waterhouse of Jamaica.

The two Jamaican sides will meet on Thursday in the finale, with Portmore United only requiring a draw to clinch a 2020 SCCL bid.

It was a tight, intense affair with scoring chances at a premium. Portmore United looked set to take the lead in the 70’ when a penalty was whistled in its favor, but Capoise GK Yves Clervin denied Javon East from the spot to keep it scoreless.

Yet three minutes later in the 73’ Clervin was unable to prevent East from scoring after receiving a cross from the right from Lamar Walker for a 1-0 lead that held up until the final whistle.
