MONTEGO BAY, St James — Reggae Youth's Javian Bailey scored six times on Tuesday to lead his team to their first win of the St James Football Association Sandals/ATL/Honda Senior League first-round game beating Seaview FC 6-0 at Wespow Park.

After being held 0-0 in their opening game, Reggae Youths exploded for six goals against a hapless Seaview, losers of two of their three games in Zone A so far.

Melbourne, however, ended Catherine Hall's perfect start, clipping them 1-0 at Albion to take over the lead in Zone A, while Seba FC got their first win under their new name by beating Revelation FC 2-1 at the UDC field as they assumed the lead in Zone B.

Melbourne are on seven points, one more than Catherine Hall with Reggae Youths next on four points, Seaview and Montego Bay United Under-21 on one each and Fogo United yet to score in Zone A.

Seba FC are on five points in Zone B ahead of revelation FC and Violet Kickers on four each, Lilliput Rovers are on two points, while Little Miami and Salt Spring United are on one each.

At Wespow Park on Tuesday, Reggae Youths shook off their slow start as they led 2-0 at half time with goals from Bailey in the 16th and 26th minutes.

He completed his hat-trick in the 48th minute before adding three more in a five-minute span, scoring in the 70th, 72nd and 75th minutes as Seaview have now allowed 12 goals in their three games played, a league high.

Seba FC got early goals from Merrick Lawson in the fifth minute and Stephen Forrest in the 14th and held on to beat Revelation 2-1 at the UDC field.

Orlando Gilpin scored in the 31st minute to pull Revelation to within a goal, but still they suffered their first loss of the season.

At Albion, Melbourne FC's Joseph Scott's 50th-minute goal was good enough for their second win as they jumped ahead of Catherine Hall to the top of the standings.

The competition continues tomorrow with a triple header at Jarrett Park -- Violet Kickers takes on Little Miami in the first game set for 3:00pm, followed by MBU Under-21 against Fogo United at 5:00 pm, while Salt Spring United and Lilliput Rovers will meet in the third game.
