MONTEGO BAY, St James — Favourites Faulkland FC and Somerton FC have taken one goal leads after Wednesday's first leg semi-finals in the St James Football Association Guardian Life Division Two competition at Jarrett Park.

Despite conceding their first goal of the season, Faulkland FC beat Cambridge United SC 2-1, while Somerton FC edged Belmount FC 1-0 in the other game.

The return-leg will be played next Wednesday at the same venue and the winners on aggregate will advance to the final.

Faukland FC got off to a fast start and were up 2-0 after just nine minutes with goals within a minute of each other from Christopher Stone and Julani Nicholson.

Despite giving up most of the possession, Cambridge fought their way back and were rewarded with a goal in the 75th minute from Charles Dove to cut into the deficit.

In the first game, Earl Anderson's 42nd-minute goal gave Somerton FC the lead over Belmount FC.
