WESTERN BUREAU:

Title hopefuls Sandals Whitehouse conceded a stoppage-time goal to draw their Charley's J.B. Rum Western Confederation Super League football game against Granville FC on Sunday, but still maintain their four-point advantage atop the leader board.

Romaine Reid scored in the 94th minute to give Granville the equaliser in a dramatic and frantic end to the match that would have given Sandals a six-point lead had they held on for victory.

Oneil Blair fired Sandals into the lead in the 65th minute, after neither team was able to break the deadlock in the first 45 minutes. Sandals now have 34 points through 11 wins in 14 matches

Granville's coach, Tracey Reid, must feel pleased, however, as they eased into a tie for second place with Savannah SC, both on 30 points, with Wadadah FC two points back in fourth on 28.

Wadadah edged strugglers Jericho Rangers 1-0 thanks to a goal in the 40th minute by Tyshan Hill.

Also on Sunday, Village United, with goals from Oniel Brown (12th minute) and Charles Grant, 63rd, defeated Holland United 2-1. Ronique Haynes scored for Holland in the 70th.

 

postponed games

 

The games between Beaches Negril and Tomorrow's People FC and Salt Marsh and Savannah SC were postponed and will be played at a date to be announced by the Confederation secretariat.

The Aaron Lawrence-coached Sandals Whitehouse will next turn their focus on their clash with Beaches Negril at Sandals tomorrow, where a victory could see them moving seven points clear of both Savannah and Granville.

Also tomorrow, Savannah's strong start to the season could be tested when they play the inconsistent Holland FC at the Elleston Wakeland Centre in Falmouth, while Salt Marsh welcome Jericho Rangers to their Davis Pen home.
