Rivoli claims dramatic 3-2 win over Tivoli Gardens

Rivoli United dropped out of the sky from nowhere like the Chikungunya Virus on Tivoli Gardens scoring three goals in six minutes for a dramatic come-from-behind 3-2 win at the Edward Seaga Stadium in which four goals where scored in eight minutes. National player Kaemmar Daley had given the home team a 25th minute lead curling a beautiful free kick into the net. But on the resumption Rivoli United hit back and hit hard. First, Daniel Roberts pulled the red and black-clad Rivoli levelled in the 66th minute then barely a minute passed when Kemar Beckford silenced the home fans in the 68th minute giving Rivoli a 2-1 lead. Just four minutes later, Ross Burton of August Town fame, put Rivoli further ahead in the 72nd minute. However, fit again. Navion Boyd reduced the deficit in the 74th minute from the penalty spot setting the stage for an interesting final few minutes but Calvert Fitzgerald team held on for their first win of the season. The Spanish Town based outfit moved to fifth spot in seven points while the labouring Tivoli Gardens stayed 10th in two points from four games.

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.
