Faulkland, Wadadah To Contest Charley’s JB Rum Western Super League Final

Faulkland and Wadadah will meet in the Charley’s JB Rum Western Conference Super League final as they recorded second-leg semifinal victories over Harmony and Reggae Youths respectively, at Jarrett Park on Sunday.

In the second match, Wadadah, playing in front of their Montego Bay home crowd, got off to an excellent start, when Obrian Robinson scored in the first minute of the match, to pull them level on aggregate with Reggae Youths.

Deshawn Woolery gave Wadadah the advantage in the 40th minute with Tyshan Hill putting them further ahead in the 59th minute before Cion Peterkin found a consolation goal for Reggae Youths in the 62nd.

Robinson would pop up for his second goal four minutes from the end to secure an easy win for Wadadah, the two-time Premier League champions.
