KINGSTON, Jamaica – Arnett Gardens came from a goal down to beat Molynes United 2-1 at the Anthony Spalding Sports Complex on Monday night, as they rebounded from their loss to Montego Bay United in their previous game.

Ezran Simpson equalised in the first half before Marlon Allen scored the winning in time added as Arnett Gardens overtook Montego Bay United for third place, on goal difference, with both clubs on 10 points.

Rashawn Livingston gave Molynes United the lead after five minutes but Simpson levelled the scores three minutes later.

The game appeared headed for a draw until a minute into time added at the end of the second half when Allen scored the winner for the Arnett Gardens team as ninth placed Molynes United lost for the third time this season.

In the first game, Javick McFarlane’s 86th minute goal gave Portmore United their first win of the season, edging promoted Chapleton Maroons 1-0, also at the Anthony Spalding Complex.

The win ended a four-game run where Portmore drew all their games and shot up to seventh in the table on seven points, same as Humble Lion.
