GEORGIA, Trelawny — Daniel Town FC could take over the lead in Zone Two of the Trelawny Football Association Grandeur Transport Services/Monymusk Rums Major League game, if they can beat Spicy Hill at Georgia Community Centre today.

Daniel Town FC had won their opening game, beating Coopers Pen 2-0, while Spicy Hill will make their first appearance of the season, the last of the 12 teams in the competition.

Duanvale FC lead Zone Two with four points from their two games played.

Salt Marsh United's miserable start continued on Sunday when they were outscored 6-4 by Rio Bueno FC, giving up three goals in time added on, slumping to back-to-back losses having conceded 10 goals in their two games.

Also, Friendship FC rebounded from their opening loss to beat Holland United 2-1.

Salt Marsh United came back from deficits three times to lead 4-3 with two goals in the 78th minute and a goal down before Rio Bueno scored three times in three minutes of time added on.

Garfield Stewart scored a hat-trick for Rio Bueno FC in the game that saw nine goals scored in a wild second half.

Stenmar Campbell in the 18th minute gave Rio Bueno FC the lead, but Errol Plummer levelled for Salt Marsh United in the 46th minute. Stewart got his first goal in the 61st minute to restore his team's advantage, but Stephen Young responded immediately a minute later to tie up the game again.

Stewart added his second goal and his team's third in the 73rd minute, but an own goal from Lance Wilson and another from Marvin Reynolds seconds later gave Salt Marsh United the lead for the first time.

Wilson atoned for his mistake when he pulled Rio Bueno FC level in the first minute of time added; Jerrell Whittingham made it 5-4 a minute later before Stewart completed his hat-trick three minutes into time added.

Friendship FC scored their first Major League win at the expense of former champions Holland United ,with goals from Casrick Grant in the 18th minute and Ryan Thompson in the 58th minute after Shannon Clarke had tied up the scores in the 23rd minute.
