Rampant UWI FC extended their lead atop the Red Stripe Premier League with a 4-0 drubbing of Tivoli Gardens at the National Stadium last night.

The win pushed the 'university' boys to 50 points from 26 matches, four ahead of Humble Lion. Tivoli Gardens are third on 45 points from 25 matches.

Anthony Greenland (39th minute), Girvon Brown in first-half injury time, Rochane Smith (72nd), and Akeem Thenstead (88th) were the scorers for UWI FC.

 

DEEPER INTO RELEGATION

 

In last night's second game, Portmore United also won 4-0 to push bottom team Boys' Town deeper into relegation trouble. Tremaine Stewart (45th), Michael Binns (55th), Ewan Grandison (89th), and Suelae McCalla (90th) scored for Portmore, who are now in fourth with 44 points. Boys' Town remain rooted at the bottom (12th) on 19 points.

Arnett Gardens (41 points, and sixth) were also in fine goalscoring form late on Sunday night as they came from behind at the half-time break to clip Harbour View 3-2 at the Harbour View Stadium.

Arnett took the lead in the second minute when Newton Sterling scored the first of two goals. However, two goals in ten minutes, the first an own goal by defender Dicoy Williams (35th), and a Kemar Bennett strike (45th), gave Harbour View a 2-1 lead at half-time.

After the break, Arnett Gardens came out a more determined team and scored two unanswered goals. Veteran Leon Strickland levelled the scores in the 61st minute, and within three minutes Sterling struck again and got what turned out to be the winning goal.
