MARTHA BRAE, Trelawny — Duanvale FC took over the lead in Group Two of the Trelawny Football Association Major League on Sunday after beating Spicy Hill SC 2-0 in their second-round game played at the Duanvale Community Centre.

The win was Duanvale FC's fourth from six games and took them to 14 points, three more than second-placed Rio Bueno FC, who were held to a draw by Invaders SC on Saturday.

Also on Sunday, Wait-A-Bit PYC extended their lead in Group One after outscoring second-placed Jackson Town 4-3 at Ulster Spring Community Centre, despite a double from Hugh-George Watson.

At Duanvale, Kenroy Brown scored in the 50th minute to give the home team the lead and an own goal in the 71st from Lenell Cowell sealed the points after the teams had played out a 2-2 draw in the first round.

At Ulster Spring, the teams shared seven goals in a game that saw the lead change three times after they had played out a 3-3 draw in the first round, combining for 13 goals in two meetings.

Wait-A-Bit took the lead in the first half but trailed 1-2 at half-time and 3-2 in the second half before scoring two late goals to beat Jackson Town for the first time this season.

Ricardo Smith gave Wait-A-Bit the lead in the 32nd minute, but Watson equalised from the penalty spot in the 37th minute before Brandies Erskine gave Jackson Town the lead in the 44th minute.

Clinton Blake brought Wait-A-Bit level at 2-2 in the 59th minute, but Watson scored in the 74th minute as the advantage switched to Jackson Town.

Jasian Clarke, however, brought Wait-A-Bit level for a second time in the 78th minute and Ronique Lewis scored the winner three minutes late.

On Saturday, Dennis Lee's early third-minute goal was enough for Holland United to beat Group Three leaders, Coopers Pen, as one point separates the top three teams.

Despite suffering their first loss of the season, Coopers Pen still lead with 11 points, one more than Holland United, both from six games, while Kinloss FC are also on 10 points but from five games played.

Kinloss were 2-1 winners over Salt Marsh United on Saturday, beating the former champions for the second time this season following a 3-2 first-round victory.

Romario Murray gave Salt Marsh United the lead after just eight minutes but they could not hold it as Kevaughn Campbell equalised for Kinloss FC in the 30th minute and Jamario Clarke scored the winner in the 84th minute.

At Unity, Invaders SC scored twice in the last 10 minutes to come form a 0-2 deficit and earn a 2-2 draw against Rio Bueno FC, earning their first point of the season in the process.

Jamar Gayle scored in the 30th minute and Garfield Stewart in the 56th minute for Rio Bueno FC, who appeared well set to repeat their first-round 2-0 win.

John Williams pulled one back for Invaders SC in the 80th minute and Cavana Atkinson drew them level four minutes later.
