GRANVILLE, St James — Former champions Granville United scored their first win on the field in the Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation/Charley's JB Rum Super League on Thursday, when they beat Grand Palladium 3-1 in their Zone Two second-round game at Granville Community Centre.

It was their third win of the season, but the previous two came as a result of decisions by the competitions committee. However, they remain in fourth place on 12 points, 11 points behind Faulkland FC who will face Reggae Youths in an all-St James mid-season final set for February 25 at Jarrett Park.

Faulkland FC topped Zone Two with 23 points, three more than Wadadah FC who edged Roaring River 1-0 on Thursday. Reggae Youths are leading Zone One with 20 points despite losing for the first time on Sunday, going down 1-2 to second-placed Harmony FC at home.

Granville United led 2-0 at half-time on Thursday with goals from Damion Reid in the 22nd minute and Romaine Reid in the 37th.

Oneil Pringle made the score 3-0 in the 77th minute when he converted a penalty kick, while Renaldo Joehill scored a 90th-minute goal for Grand Palladium who had their four-game unbeaten run come to an end.

Wadadah FC got their fifth win of the season and remained the only team in the competition not to lose a game all season, clipping Roaring River 1-0 thanks to Kemiro James' second goal of the season, coming in the 53rd minute.
