KINGSTON, Jamaica— Harbour View jumped to the top of Group B after coming from behind to beat Robinhood FC of Suriname 3-2 in their CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship at the National Stadium Wednesday night.

Shaquille Bradford scored twice in the 55th and 70th minutes as the Stars of the East leapfrogged Robinhood into top spot on seven points. Robinhood remained on six points.

Atletico Pantoja of the Dominican Republic sits in third spot on three points ahead of Jamaica's Dunbeholden and Cibao also of Dominican Republic on a point each.

The top two teams will advance to the semifinals.

With the inclement weather wreaking havoc in the schoolboy football earlier, a relatively small crowd turned up but they were treated to an exciting encounter inside the National Stadium.

Harbour View trailed twice before taking the lead with 20 minutes remaining in a hard fought contest.

Shaquille Cairo gave Robinhood a 1-0 lead in the 31st minute after Harbour View's goalkeeper Romario Palma's punched effort rebounded off a defender and fell nicely for him to tap home.

Harbour View hit the bar with a crashing shot from Omar Thompson before Jashaun Anglin was clear through on goal but was crowded out after hesitating.

The wily Thompson returned and pulled Harbour View levelled on the stroke of halftime firing home a deflected shot from just outside the box in the 45+5 minute.

Harbour View, having grown in confidence, should have taken the lead as Anglin skied his effort from close range.

Then to make matters worse, Robinhood regained the lead from the penalty spot after Romaine Breakenridge fouled Cairo and the referee pointed to the penalty spot.

Captain Jamilhio Righters convert and restored Robinhood's advantage in the 50th minute.

But Harbour View came back right away in the 55th minute as Bradford rammed home from just inside the box making it 2-2.

He would return with the clincher in the 79th minute beating the offside trap and calmly tucked away his shot for the winner.
