Newcomers Jamalco continued Waterhouse's miserable start to the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season, handing the Drewsland-based club a 3-0 win at Drewsland mini stadium yesterday and condemning the former champion to their third defeat from as many games.

Twenty-two year old attacking midfielder, Rohan Richards, was the chief architect of the home team's demise, providing a goal and an assist while tormenting the Waterhouse defense all afternoon.

The former Denbigh High player, who is in his first season in the Premier League, has won the man-of-the-match award for all three matches he has played this season and is really taking to life in the top-flight

"I have a good influence on the Jamalco attack. Jamalco fans are looking for hard work from me, so I put in the hard work for my team to come out victorious in games," he told STAR Sports.

Meanwhile, as pressure continue to mount on Waterhouse coach Marvin Tate, he was locked in a meeting with his players after the game and could not be reach for comments.

Maverley/Hughenden maintained their unbeaten run following a 0-0 draw against the University of the West Indies (UWI) FC at the UWI Bowl.

The game was a dull affair as the teams failed to create any clear chances. It was a game lacking creativity and any bit of brilliance.

Maverley-Hughenden ended the game with ten players as Nackwayne Parchment licked up a second yellow card and shown the red card in the 90 plus 3 minutes of the game.

Andrae Bernal got the best chance but missed from close range after the ball fell kindly to him in the first half.
