MONTEGO BAY, St James — Montego Bay Boys Club and Little Miami FC will seek to stay in close touch with leaders Montego Bay United (MBU) Under 21, when they meet this afternoon in the first game of a double at Jarrett Park in the St James Football Association's Sandals/ATL Senior League, set to start at 5:00pm.

Both teams are on seven points each, four behind MBU Under 21, who were held goalless by Rosemount on Tuesday, but a win would see them move to within a point.

Boys Club and Little Miami are both coming off wins last week over Rosemount and Revelations, respectively.

In the second game, Salt Sprint United will be seeking their third straight win when they take on winless Granville City.

After their opening 2-2 draw against North Gully Ambassadors, Salt Spring has beaten Fogo United and Melbourne United to improve to seven points.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday, Fogo United won their second straight game, edging Violet Kickers 2-1 at the UDC field, as the losers went down to their second straight 2-1 loss in five days.

A ball that came off Kyle Williams' shin and ballooned over goalkeeper Warren Barrett in the 37th minute gave Fogo United the lead at half time.

Gavin Wright equalised with his third goal of the season early in the second half but Damion Chambers' 56th minute goal for Fogo decided the points for the Flanker- based club.

At Sam Sharpe Teachers' College, Reggae Youths' winless streak was extended to four games after they had to come from behind twice in a 2-2 draw with last placed Revelations.

Kevin Wilson's 40th minute goal gave Revelation the lead, but Keneil Whittaker levelled the scores in the 70th minute.

Tremaine Dennis restored Revelations' lead in the 79th minute, but Kashief Brown snatched a point for his team in the 83rd minute.
