Top 5 Moments - Lovel Palmer

See original post here.

 Lovel Palmer

  1. Scoring my first international goal for Essex Valley in the 1998 Norway Cup in a 1-1 draw 
  2. Winning the 2005 Caribbean Club Championship with Harbour View FC
    In 2005, Harbour View became the first Jamaican club to win the Caribbean Club Championship. We went on to play against D.C. United of MLS in a home and away fixture. (Unfortunately for Lovel, D.C. United beat Harbour View by a score of 2-1 in each game.)
  3. Becoming the youngest captain to win the Jamaican premier league with Harbour View at age 21. 
  4. Playing against and beating my favorite player of all time, David Beckham and L.A. Galaxy 3-0 in a packed Jeld Wen Stadium in front of the Timbers Army was electrifying. (I think Lovel is referencing this August 3rd, 2011 game when Lovel was with Portland.)
  5. Winning the 2016 NASL Spring Championship with Indy Eleven (an important moment in Indy Eleven history...)
    Winning the Spring Championship in the final game of the regular season needing to win by 3 goals. Eamon Zayed came up big with a hat trick. We won the game 4-1. Corey Miller was big for us in defense and Don Smart and Dylan Mares dominated in the midfield. The Mike was ecstatic at the end of the 90+ minute knowing Indy just won our first major trophy.
