GRANVILLE, St James — Former champions Granville United are off to their best-ever start in the Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation Charleys JB Rum Super League with back-to-back 1-0 wins after beating Sandals South Coast at the Granville Community Centre on Tuesday.

A late goal from Ewan Barton gave Granville United a win over the Aaron Lawrence-coached Sandals South Coast champions two years ago and who are returning to the completion after a year in the Red Stripe Premier League, as they became the first team to win back-to-back games to start the season.

Barton scored in the 85th minute to beat the Sandals South Coast team that had opened their season with a big 5-1 win over promoted Somerton FC in the first set of games.

Granville United lead Zone One with six points, two more than Harmony FC and Faulkland FC who got their first win of the season, beating Somerton FC 1-0 at the UDC field.

Ladrick Haughton scored in back-to -back games for Faulkland FC, last season's beaten finalists, as they turned back Somerton FC, who are without a point after two games.

Today, defending champions Wadadah FC will seek to win back to back games to start their season when they take on first-timers Delveland PYC in a rescheduled game at the UDC field, starting at 3:00 pm.

Wadadah FC beat Grand Palladium 3-2 on Sunday and will hope to get the better of the Westmoreland team who will be playing their first game after having two games postponed so far.
