Andre Leslie notched a hat trick to help power Jamaican side Waterhouse to a 4-0 victory over Bayamon FC of Puerto Rico in the 2022 Scotiabank CONCACAF League Play-Off on Wednesday at the Estadio Cibao FC in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, CONCACAF said.
Fresh off their Fourth-Place finish in the 2022 Flow CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship over the weekend, CONCACAF said Waterhouse enjoyed a prolific second half with four goals to defeat the 2022 CONCACAF Caribbean Club Shield winners and secure their place in this year’s SCL.
“A tight, intense first half gave way to a much more open second half, and the key moment would come in the 67’ when Stephen Williams struck for the game’s first goal with a sensational left-footed strike from outside the area that beat Bayamon GK Joel Serrano,” CONCACAF said.
“With the advantage, Waterhouse could play to their liking, and Leslie would take over, scoring his first goal in the 78’ to double the Jamaican side’s lead to 2-0 with a strong right-footed shot swung into net,” it added. “Leslie was just getting started and soon enough in the 84’, it was 3-0 to Waterhouse thanks to a composed left-footed finish from Leslie inside the area.”
CONCACAF said the SCL-clinching day for Waterhouse was then capped in the 87’, as Leslie completed his hat trick and put the bow on the 4-0 score line courtesy of another right-footed shot.
