Former champions Tivoli Gardens made it three wins in a row following a 1-0 win over promoted Dunbeholden at the Edward Seaga Stadium on Sunday.

Midfielder Colorado Murray found the back of the net early on, giving the West Kingston team the lead in the 19th minute.  Having failed to find the back of the net in two prior games the goal drought went on for the St Catherine team who have conceded a single goal in each of their last three encounters.

In other matches, a late strike from Anthony Greenland maintained University of the West Indies (UWI) perfect start to the season and handed Cavalier their first lost.  With the game scoreless heading to full-time, Greenland found the back of the net in the 89th minute.

Arnett Gardens secure a win in slightly more comfortable circumstances after Jamiel Hardware (82nd) added to Lennox Russel’s 6th-minute strike for a 2-0 win over Reno.  The loss was the third consecutive in a row for the Western team yet to get going this season.
