St Bess defeated Rivoli United 2-0 to remain atop Zone II following the latest round of matches in the SCC/Charley’s JB Rum Super League.

Yesterday, at the Lacovia Sports Complex, the St Elizabeth standard bearers finally broke the deadlock after 63 minutes when Naquain Brown scored from the penalty spot. Three minutes later, Oshane Staple doubled the advantage for the hosts to move a point ahead of the former premier league campaigners, who suffered their second defeat of the season.

Another former premier league team, Sporting Central Academy also tasted defeat as their terrible start to the new season continues. They were beaten for the fourth time in their Zone II clash away to Greenvale Academy, who ran out comfortable 3-1 victors at the Greenvale Community Centre.

Kemar Ricketts (26th) first half strike and Maxwell Robinson’s (32nd, 48th) two goals either side of the break ensured the visitors left Mandeville empty-handed. Kwesi Watts (48th) of Sporting Central scored within seconds of Robinson’s second goal.

Holland PYC moved ahead of Rivoli into second position on goal-difference, after Ockar Barnes’ (52nd) goal gave them a 1-0 home win over Dunbeholden, who are second from bottom in the zone.

York Town left it very, very late to snatch a 1-1 away draw against Hillstars PYC at Kirkvine. Kenroy Mullings’ 40th minute goal looked to have been enough until Ishmael Currie scored in the fourth minute of time-added to give the Clarendonians a share of the spoils.

On Saturday, Old Harbour Bay continue to occupy fourth spot in Zone I after playing to a nil-all draw with overall leaders Blackstars at Marlie Acres.

Tru Juice slipped to third after being held 1-1 at home by Porus to remain four points from the top. Geo Givans (18th) fired the visitors in front, while Keeva Thomas (56th) leveled for the hosts early in the second half.

Vere are now only two points adrift of Blackstars after hammering Downs FC 6-1 on the road.

Goals from Shantel Mundle (29th), Shemar Nairne (12th, 52nd), Rafique Graham (64th) along with Shorndee Webb’s (79th) own-goal completed an embarrassing afternoon for the host, who managed to pulled a goal back via Ajay Chin sixth minute from full time.

Real Treasure Beach also won on the road with Jhavon Williams (49th) ensuring that they left the Riverside Football Field at Moores with maximum points.

The competition continues next week.
