LUCEA, Hanover — Claremont United could move into a top-four position today if they can beat winless Logwood United at Watson-Taylor Park as the cross-zone round of Hanover Football Association Island Lux Beach Park/Negril and MP Ian Hayles Western Hanover/CDF Hanover FA Major League continues.

Claremont United are in fifth place on six points and a win would see them move ahead of Mt Pelier DC, who are on eight points and one point behind joint second-placed teams Johnson Town and Lucea FC.

The cross-zone round started on Wednesday with Lucea FC playing out a 2-2 draw against Sandy Bay United at Bethel Primary, while Johnson Town came from a goal down to beat Esher United at Watson Taylor Park.

On Thursday, St Simon FC and Mt Pelier DC drew 1-1 at Watson Taylor Park.

Yasser Baccass scored both goals for Lucea FC as they took the lead twice only to see Sandy Bay United come from behind twice.

Baccass gave them the lead in the 22nd minute, but Kenneth Keith equalised two minutes later.

Lucea retook the lead in the 61st minute, but Robert Clarke pulled Sandy Bay United back level in the 74th minute.

Esher United took the lead against Johnson Town in the 36th minute through Junel McDonald, but Shamair Smith equalised for Johnson Town in the 52nd minute before Kemar Kerr scored the winner in the 80th minute.

On Thursday, Demetri Jervis scored in the sixth minute to give Mt Pelier DC the lead, but Orlando Bird scored in the 47th minute for St Simon to get a share of the points.
