— Defending champions Wadadah FC are hoping to extend their winning start when they take on newcomers Delveland PYC in a rescheduled Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation JB Rum Super League match at the UDC field today, starting at 3:00 pm.

The game was part of the first round of games set for Sunday, December 2, but was postponed until today.

On Sunday Wadadah FC beat Grand Palladium 3-2.

Delveland PYC will be playing their first game today as they too had a game postponed.

Meanwhile, former champions Granville United won back-to-back games after they edged Sandals South Coast 1-0 at the Granville Community Centre on Tuesday.

Faulkland FC also got their first win of the season by beating promoted Somerton FC 1-0 at the UDC field.

At Granville, Ewan Barton scored a late goal in the 85th minute to give Granville their second win, which took them to the top of Zone 1 with six points, two more than Faulkland FC and Harmony FC.

Sandals South Coast, who returned to the competition after a year in the Red Stripe Premier League, had a 5-1 win over Somerton FC on Sunday.

Faulkland FC, last season's beaten finalists, struggled against Somerton FC who are playing in the Super League for the first time, eking out a meagre 1-0 victory.

Ladrick Haughton scored the winner in the 59th minute, from a failed clearance — his second goal of the season — after he scored in their 1-1 draw against Harmony FC in the season opener.
