A resilient nine - men Hydel High refused to surrender Group I leadership to their rivals, still occupying pole position with four points, courtesy of a fighting come-from-behind 2-2 draw with former champions Camperdown High, at the Constant Spring Field yesterday.

Hydel's main goal scorer Nicholas Nelson (11 goals) fired low and hard at goal, which Stephen Barnett followed up on and hit home in the 41st minute, for his 10th of the season.

Barnett was again pivotal in the 86th minute. His free-kick which dipped and swerved from goalkeeper Kristoffe Samuels rebounded to Rodari Edwards who spanked home in the 86th minute.

Camperdown's scorer was Kevin Clarke in the 46th and 80th minutes, as captain Tevin Shaw missed a 64th minute penalty which should have won the game for his team.

Hydel's captain, Kurt Thomas was sent off for a second yellow and Kevin Wright also followed, after a hard tackle.

In the earlier game, which started at 1:00pm at the same venue, Denham Town took over second position, after edging Innswood High 1-0.

Substitute Orlando Brown received an aerial ball, wrestled past his marker and struck home his first goal of the season in minute 77.

The result leaves the Ferry- based school on four points for the time being, one ahead of Denham Town - three.

Meanwhile, Denham Town are hoping that Hydel will lose three points gained from them, after in their 3-0 loss, last Tuesday.

It was revealed that Hydel used an ineligible player-Howard Morris, who was given a red card in the Flow Super Cup game against Clarendon College, but started for Hydel.

A Board room meeting with ISSA will rule on the matter this Friday.
