KINGSTON, Jamaica -Dunbeholden FC earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over Vere United to move back into a play-off spot in their Jamaica Premier League first round game played at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Kingston on Monday.

Dean Andre Thomas scored the winner in the 85th minute for Dunbeholden FC, who were winning their third straight game, and improved to 18 points same as Arnett Gardens who were held 0-0 by Faulkland FC in the second game of the double-header.

Faulkland FC put up one of their better showing as they frustrated Arnett Gardens who wasted a handful of scoring chances in the first half.

Meanwhile, the Competitions Committee of the JFF has come down heavily on Chapletom Maroons after the Clarendon team failed to show for their game against Mt Pleasant FA on Sunday, slapping them with a $200,000 fine and docking them six points.

The promoted team breached two competition rules, Article 7.5 and 6, and the game has been awarded to Mount Pleasant FA by a score of three goals to nil (3-0).

They are not completely out of the woods as they could pay a further sum of up to $150,000 as compensation “for any damages or losses suffered by Mount Pleasant FA and the JFF up to a maximum of $150,000 and will face the JFF Disciplinary Committee for further actions to be taken in accordance with Article 70 of the JFF Disciplinary Code.
