Another brace from national striker Dino Williams piloted former champions Montego Bay United to the top of the Red Stripe Premier League on Sunday when they came from behind to win 2-1 and steal all three points from FC Reno in the ‘Western Derby’.

The home team had taken the early lead on minute 5 through Rushane Thorpe but Williams drew the teams’ level in the 29th minute.

The league’s leading goal scorer then grabbed the winner four minutes from time to send Mobay, who now have 13 points, top on goal difference ahead of Portmore FC who could only draw 0-0 with Boys Town, also on Sunday.

Elsewhere, ten man Humble Lion suffered their second loss of the season going down 2-0 to Rivoli United at home to slip out of the top four and into fifth position on 8 points. Kamar Bennett got both goals for Rivoli in the 83rd minute and the third minute of second half stoppage time.  Humble Lion were joined on 8 by Cavalier who drew 0-0 with the UWI while Rivoli are in 8th position on 7 points.

The result of the day however, came from the Edward Seaga Sports Complex where Tivoli Gardens FC stunned Waterhouse FC 4-0. Former Reggae Boy, Jermaine ‘Teddy’ Johnson, opened the scoring in the 15th minute before a Miguel Ricketts brace in the 20th and 37th minute, knocked the stuffing out of the visitors, as Tivoli led 3-0 at the break.  Rodico Wellington completed the scoring ten minutes from time as Tivoli climbed into the top four on 8 points, with a better goal difference than Humble Lion and Cavalier who share the same number of points.

The Final game of match day six will be between Harbour View and defending champions Arnett Gardens at the Harbour View Stadium on Monday night.
