Mt Pleasant FA win fourth straight in JPL

ST ANN, Jamaica - Defending champions Mt Pleasant FA cruised to a fourth straight win after beating Harbour View FC 2-0 in their Wray and Nephew Jamaica Premier League game played at Drax Hall, St Ann on Sunday.

Despite having a first half penalty saved, Mt Pleasant FA dominated the game that saw Harbour View end with 10 men after they had a player sent off in the second half after he picked up a second yellow card.

Both goals came in the second half after Kimoni Bailey opened the scoring in the 69th minute before Devonte Campbell added a second in the 78th minute to secure the points.

Portmore United moved up to second place with their third straight win, beating Molynes United 2-0 with goals from Chevaughn Walsh in time added at the end of the first half and Okelo Howard in the 68th minute.

Cavalier SC snatched a point from promoted Lime Hall Academy after playing out a 1-1 draw in the first game at Drax Hall.

Ronaldo Robinson’s goal in the sixth minute of added time in the second half saved them from a second loss after Kevin Graham had given Lime Hall the lead as early as the 10th minute.
