Waterhouse FC’s to go one better in this season’s Red Stripe Premier League continues to look promising after last year’s runners up, courtesy of a 2-1 win over Humble Lion at the Effortville Community Centre, moved to 30 points.

Waterhouse’s lead is now eight points after second-place Mount Pleasant lost 2-0 to RSPL defending champions Portmore United.

National representative Cory Burke scored a brace to help the champions keep momentum that is now four games strong. They are now on 18 points and up to sixth place in the standings.

Molynes United, continued to struggle, losing 3-0 to Vere United at the Wembley Centre of Excellence but they are still third on 20 points.

Cavalier SC now lie ninth in the table on 15 points after they were held 1-1 by 10th place University of the West Indies, who now have 12 points.

In the day’s late game, Duneholden, who began the day ninth, are now up to seventh with 17 points, leapfrogging Harbour View, who drop to eighth on 16.

A furious late-game rally from Mount Pleasant kept the pressure on Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) leaders Waterhouse after they secured a 2-1 win over Humble Lion.

The St Ann-based club seemed well on their way to a home loss after Rohan Richards had given Humble Lion the lead at the stroke of halftime.  With the advantage holding for most of the second half, Mount Pleasant only sprang into action in the final 10 minutes.  Sue-Lae McCalla finally brought the team back on level terms in the 86th minute and in the dying embers of the game, Jourdaine Fletcher scored again to leave Humble Lion stunned.  The win was the fifth in a row for the surging Mount Pleasant.

Elsewhere, the downward spiral continued for previous league leaders Molynes United who crashed to a fourth loss in five games following a 2-1 loss to UWI.  Sergini Frankson gave the promoted team the lead in the 13th minute but UWI struck back almost immediately when Shuwayne Barrett responded in the 17th minute.  Zhelano Barnes handed the visitors all three points from the penalty spot in the 57th minute.  In another game, ten-man Tivoli Gardens went down 1-0 to visiting Portmore United.  Forward Rondee Smith got the game’s only goal in the 72nd minute.  Elsewhere, a Dean-Andre Thomas double saw Dunbeholden snap a two-game winless streak with a 2-1 win over Vere United.

In the late kick-offs, goals from Kenroy Howell (37th), Tremaine Stewart (74th) and Colorado Murray (83rd) saw Waterhouse come from behind to secure a comprehensive 3-1 win over Harbour View.  Bebeto McDonald had given the home team the lead in the 28th minute.  In the other game, Arnett Gardens cruised to a 4-2 win over Cavalier.

Humble Lion handed promoted Molynes United a second loss in as many games a result which left the newcomers struggling for answers after a fast start to life in the top flight.

The promoted team won their first six games but have managed just one point in their last three games.  On Sunday, it was the home team that struck first after Andre Clennon found the back of the net in the 52nd minute after a scoreless first half.  Molynes were quick to strike back, however, and pulled level through the efforts of Ryan Brown three minutes later.  LeVaughn Williams ensured the host would plunder all three points, however, finding the back of the net in time added on.

In other games, Dean-Andre Thomas scored the all-important goal as Dunbeholden edged UWI 1-0.  Thomas found the mark in the 52nd minute.  Vere United and Arnett Gardens played to a 1-1 draw.  Tamar Edwards gave Arnett Gardens the lead in the 60th minute but Javior Brown stuck back to ensure the home team had at least a share of the points nine minutes later.
