Neiko Williams was the scourge of Waterhouse FC fans following the team 0-0 draw with UWI in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at Drewsland yesterday. The former Arnett Gardens striker wasted a number of second-half chances to claim the win and the Drewsland faithful their first win over the Marcel Gayle-coached UWI, who sits atop the table ahead of MoBay on goal difference with 43 points.

Despite not taking the three points the result push the relegation strugglers one place up the table, to ninth with 23 points, as they climbed above Jamalco on goal difference.

"I think the guys deserve three points but it was not to be... UWI is a team at the top team so we will settle for the one point, and a point today (Sunday) is still important," said assistant coach Curtis Hamilton.

In other games, Arnett Gardens turned back Reno 1-0 on a late Kemal Malcolm goal, Portmore defeated Jamalco 2-1, while Maverley/Hughenden and MoBay United played out a 0-0 draw.   

The remaining top six reads: Tivoli third (42), Portmore (40), Humble Lion (39) and Arnett Gardens (34).

Tivoli Gardens have a chance to return to the summit when they play Harbour View in one of two Monday night games at the national stadium. Humble Lion can also reclaim fourth spot with a win over Boys' Town in the other game.
