After securing a 1-0 win on a Faustin late strike to beat Real Maracas in the League Cup final on Sunday, the “Water Boys” proved their win was no fluke with a 4-1 whipping of its opponents in the round-of-16 of the Eastern Football Association Emerald Apartments & Plaza Cup at WASA Ground, St Joseph.

Mc Cartney found the target in the 29th and 71st minute while Faustin scored in the 41st and 67th minute to cancel out Brent Castillo’s 12th minute go-ahead item for Maracas. Southeaster Connection, Joe Public and Tunapuna Titans also won to complete the quarterfinal line-up.

Andre Persad’s 16th minute item was enough for Connection to eke out a 1-0 triumph over Boss FC at Aranguez; Kevin Caprietta scored twice for Joe Public in its 4-2 ousting of La Horquetta XF at Squadron Ground, Arouca and Titans edged Creek 3-2 at Constantine Park, Tunapuna. The quarterfinal matches will take place on Tuesday while the Big Four kicks off today.
