Brown scored his second for Granville FC in the 73rd minute and pulled them to within one of Duanvale, but Chavaughn Barnett scored in the 85th minute as Duanvale FC eased away to win.

Daniel Town had beaten Coopers Pen 2-0 in the first round, but the favour was returned on Saturday with goals from Shannary Brown in the 54th minute and Delbert Thomas in the 86th minute, which helped the home team to the full points as they improved to 11 and took over second place.
