Waterhouse Football Club will be looking to make further inroads into the Scotiabank CONCACAF League on Wednesday at the National Stadium when they tackle FC Motagua of Honduras at 9 p.m. in a quarterfinals fixture.

Waterhouse advanced to this stage of the tournament after stopping defending champions CS Herediano of Costa Rica on penalties, in their home-and-away battle, while Motagua defeated Managua of Nicaragua 3-2 on aggregate.

The match is expected to pit the slick passing of the Central Americans Motagua against the strength and speed of Waterhouse, who are back-to-back losers of the island’s top-tier football competition, the Red Stripe Premier League. Waterhouse lost to Portmore in the final last year and to Arnett Gardens the year before.

With a victory, Waterhouse will be on their way to becoming the first Jamaican club to advance to the semifinals of the competition. To do so, they would have to complete the aggregate win next week Wednesday in Honduras.

Waterhouse will be looking to newly acquired marksman, Colorado Murray along with captain Keithy Simpson, Tramaine Stewart and Andre Moulton to spur them to victory. Murray joined Waterhouse this season, after donning the colours of Tivoli Gardens for a few seasons.
