The University of the West Indies moved to the top in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) when they edged struggling Jamalco FC 1-0 at the UWI Bowl in Mona yesterday.

The tertiary institution team are on 46 points courtesy of a goal by Anthony Greenland in the 37th minute.

Jamalco had the better chances but were let down by faulty shooting. The promoted team had a glorious chance to level the score but their captain Shauntel Mundel kicked a penalty that was saved by UWI's custodian Amal Knight in the second half.

In another result, Humble Lion moved into second position on 45 points, following a 2-0 win against seventh placed Reno FC at Effortville Community Centre in Clarendon.

Maverley-Hughenden inched out of the relegation zone after a 0-0 draw against Portmore United at the Spanish Town Prison.
