THE much heralded Rendezvous team exited the KFC?Champions Cup on a night when top teams Weymouth Wales and Barbados Defence Force advanced to the last eight.
 Rendezvous, the defending champions, were defeated by the University of the West Indies (UWI)?in the third round on Sunday night at the National Stadium.
Rendezvous went down to UWI via the penalty route after they were locked 2-2 after 120 minutes of football.
It was a gritty and memorable team effort from UWI, with goalkeeper Tazieo Riley leading the way. They emerged 4-1 winners in the shoot-out with Riley making some splendid saves.
Wales had an impressive 7-0 blow-out over Pharmaceutical Plus Cosmos while the BDFSP won on penalty kicks 13-12, after a 2-2 tie with Gall Hill.
A Carl Joseph beaver-trick drove Wales into the quarter-finals as they made light work of Cosmos.
Joseph netted in the 13th, 46th, 48th and 70th minutes to take his tally this season to 15 in all competitions. There were also goals for Aqyil Cumberbatch, who scored in the 52nd and 75th minutes, and Jadai Clarke, who completed the rout with a goal in the 24th minute.
In the other clash, the Defence Force reaped sweet revenge against Gall Hill after the Christ Church outfit toppled them last year at the quarter-finals stage. (MK)
