FROME, Westmoreland — Savannah SC and Sandals Whitehouse FC both scored important wins on Tuesday to solidify their positions in the top-three of the JFF Captain's Bakery and Grill/Charley's JB Rum Western Confederation Super League.

Savannah SC extended their unbeaten run with a 2-0 win over a floundering Tomorrow's People who have lost three straight games after being beaten in the mid-season final, while Sandals Whitehouse upset leaders Reno FC 2-0 at Frome.

Reno are still leading the points table with 29 from 14 games, just two more than Savannah SC's 27 with a game in hand, while Sandals Whitehouse moved into third place with 25 points. St James clubs Tomorrow's People and Granville are tied on 21 each.

For the second time this season, Reno FC lost at Frome while they were the 'visiting team' as Dervin Campbell's 20th-minute goal and Kemar Dawkins' 83rd ensured Sandals Whitehouse got the upset victory and avenged a first-round 1-2 loss at home.

Reno, who have not been beaten at the venue since last season as the 'home' team, had earlier lost to Savannah SC there and were being held goalless for only the second time this season after a 0-0 draw with Wadadah FC in the first round.

At Jarrett Park, Marlon Summerville scored twice in a three-minutes pan in the second half — scoring in the 70th and 73rd minutes for Savannah SC to shut out Tomorrow's People.

There was some good news for Montego Bay Boys' Club, however, as they won for the first time this calendar year, snapping a nine-game run without a win dating back to December 22, beating Duanvale FC 2-0 at the UDC field.

Ironically, it was against Duanvale in Falmouth that they had their last win up to Tuesday.

Neville Williams in the 51st minute and Andrew Brown in the 56th got the badly needed win for Boys' Club as they edged up to 14 points, but are still in the relegation zone in ninth place.

At Elliston Wakeland Centre, Roshane Reid scored his second goal for Holland since leaving Norwood Strikers as they were held 1-1 by Granville FC.

Cion Peterkin gave Granville the lead in the 63rd minute before Reid levelled for the home team in the 71st minute.

Holland crept up to 20 points, one behind Granville who have a game in hand.
