Red Stripe Premier League
The overachieving University of the West Indies FC came from a goal down to spank former champions Boys Town 5-1 on Sunday and ensured that they will be playing in the Red Stripe Premier League for a second consecutive season.
Dubbed relegation fodder at the start of their inaugural season, the UWI fell behind to a Rafiek Thomas goal in the first minute of play, but responded with three first half goals to go in 3-1 at the break before adding two more in the second half to add shine to a polished performance against the West Kingston based team.

Portmore United ensured that the time spent by the defending champions Arnett Gardens at the top of the Red Stripe Premier League was a mere 24 hours after they carved out a narrow 1-0 win over Harbour View courtesy of a 72nd minute striker from substitute Ricardo Morris on Monday night.
The imposing Evan Grandison was the first to have a shot to goal in the match and though it was always going wide, gave the goalkeeper something to think about.
