BOUNTY HALL, Trelawny - Leaders and mid-season champions Faulkland FC could be the first team to secure a place in the semi-finals of the Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation/Charley's JB Rum Super League on Sunday if they beat Harmony FC in their third-round game at Bounty Hall, Trelawny.

Faulkland FC lead the table with 29 points from their 12 games played, and three more points on Sunday would see them make it to back-to-back semi-finals in their second season in the competition.

Reggae Youths improved their chances of making it to the semi-finals for the first time after edging Wadadah FC in a bruising game on Tuesday to take over sole possession of second place on 26 points — three more than the former champions — with Harmony FC in fourth place on 21 points.

Trevaughn Walker's 42nd-minute goal made the difference in a game that saw two red cards in the first half, while Reggae Youths snapped a two-game losing skid, both losses coming against Faulkland FC.

Reggae Youths' Oshane Russell and Wadadah FC's Prince Christie were sent off in the 20th minute as Wadadah FC lost for the first time this season.

Also on Sunday, Reggae Youths will host Roaring River at WesPow Park, Wadadah will seek to rebound against Catherine Hall at Jarrett Park, fifth-placed Grand Palladium are away in Montego Bay against Montego Bay Boys Club, while Granville United will seek to keep their momentum alive when they travel to Long Bay Beach Park to play Beaches Negril.

Faulkland FC have won their last three games by a 9-0 aggregate and will come up against a Harmony FC team that are fighting to get into the last four.

Faulkland FC lead the league with 30 goals, but face one of the best defensive teams in the competition as Harmony FC have only allowed eight goals in 12 games.

Reggae Youths will hope to build on their win over Wadadah FC on Tuesday when they take on Roaring River FC, who are battling to avoid relegation after just one season in the Super League.

Two St James clubs are also battling to avoid relegation — last season's beaten finalists Montego Bay Boys Club and Catherine Hall — and they will take on Grand Palladium and Wadadah FC respectively.

Boys Club are in 10th position on eight points and take on a Grand Palladium team that are just outside of the top four, while Catherine Hall FC are on seven points and will have their hands full against a Wadadah FC team that is seeking to get back to the semi-finals.
