SuperCopa Semifinals: Islanders 2-0 Mayagüez FC (2nd Leg)By: BoriQa | December 5th, 2010
The Puerto Rico Islanders defeated Mayagüez FC 2-0 in the return leg of the SuperCopa Semifinals to win a spot in the finals with a 4-1 aggregate score.
The Islanders will now face River Plate PR for the first time ever in Puerto Rican football history. River Plate PR defeated Sevilla FC Juncos with a 2-1 aggregate score after a controversial 1-1 draw last night, that saw River Plate tie the match and win the Semifinal on a corner kick goal, after the referee erred and overuled a lineman’s ‘out of bounds’ call for a corner kick. River Plate FC had won the 1st leg 1-0 in Juncos.
Both SuperCopa finalists, the Islanders and River Plate PR, are qualified to the 2011 CFU Club Champions Cup tournament. The Islanders are the reigning 2010 CFU Champions, while River Plate PR got eliminated by the eventual 2010 CFU Subchampion Joe Public from Trinidad & Tobago in the 2nd round.
The 1st-leg of the Finals will be at 8pm on Thursday at Juan Ramón Loubriel stadium in Bayamón. The 2nd-leg will be on Sunday also at Bayamón, as renovations for the River Plate’s new stadium in San Juan are not complete.
Mayagüez FC and Sevilla FC Juncos will play for 3rd place on Wednesday (1st-Leg) and Saturday (2nd-Leg). It is not yet known if the 3rd place team this year will receive a 3rd spot berth to the 2011 CFU tournament. For the 2010 CFU tournament Puerto Rico had 3 berths: Puerto Rico Islanders, River Plate PR and Bayamón FC.
