Hounds keeper Jahmali Waite starts in Jamaica’s 2-2 draw vs Mexico in CONCACAF Nations League

In an entertaining CONCACAF Nations League match between Mexico and Jamaica, with each side having plenty of attacking intent in a 2-2 draw, Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC goalkeeper Jahmali Waite drew the starting assignment for the Reggae Boys.

Waite made three saves, but there was little he could do about either of the two goals.

The draw means that Mexico advance to the semifinals of the CONCACAF Nations League, but they do so in somewhat ugly fashion.

Meanwhile, Jamaica fall short despite a spirited effort that saw them twice take a lead only to be pegged back pretty quickly both times.

The Reggae Boyz went into a tough place to play, in bad weather and made the most of it.

Reportedly, Waite will be headed right to Tulsa to rejoin his club ahead of Tuesday night’s match.
