Confirmed: Jamaica earns deserved draw against Mexico





Jamaica held CONCACAF giants Mexico to 0-0 result in their World Cup qualifying match to earn a first and historic draw at the Azteca Stadium today.

The Reggae Boyz played with maturity and started the match positively with the first clear chance at goal falling to Jobi McAnuff who saw his first time shot hit the post as the keeper was in no man's land and McAnuff got the rebound, but hit his shot straight at the Mexican keeper Corona.

Mexico were kept at bay by the Jamaican defence and when they were breached Donovan Ricketts was on hand to beat away a fierce shot by Giovanni Dos Santos.

In the second half the Mexicans increased the pressure and when the ball fell to Manchester United's Javier Hernandez the ball was caught under his feet and then when he shaped to shoot Ricketts was on hand to keep out his shot as the Jamaicans held firm. As the Mexicans pushed forward to find the winning goal they left huge gaps at the back and Ryan Johnson raced through and was one on one with the keeper, but his weak shot was easily saved by the keeper.

When the fourth official signaled six minutes of injury time this did not faze the Reggae Boyz who earned a deserved draw.

NWC announces new St. Mary water restrictions

The National Water Commission is reporting that despite several instances of sporadic rainfall, its water supply systems continue to be adversely affected by low yields from its catchment areas. While much of the corporate area continues to experience regulated water supply, the Commission is now advising that the Iterboreale Water Treatment Plant in St. Mary is the latest system that will be placed under regulation. Accordingly, customers who are served by this Plant will no longer be served on a 24-hour basis. Instead, water will be regulated between the areas served from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. As such, Annotto Bay and its environs will receive water 10:00am to 4:00pm daily while areas served by the Agualta Vale Relift Station, including Highgate and Islington, will receive water between the hours of 4:00pm and 10:00am daily. The National Water Commission apologizes for any inconvenience caused and encourages customers served by the Iterboreale Treatment Plant to conserve and store water for use until normal service is restored.
