Western Bureau:

Arnett Gardens FC swept into third place in the Red Stripe Premier League, on the back of a Marcelino Blackburn double at the Frome Sports Complex yesterday.

The defending champions came from behind to clip Reno 2-1 after Tyshan Hill had fired Reno into the lead in the 21st minute. Blackburn levelled the score with a header in the 47th minute then struck again in added time with a dipping left-footed free kick.

The victory takes them to third in the table, joining Humble Lion on 26 points, and left the home team in mid-table with 22 points.

"I am very pleased with the win, because we have been having trouble scoring lately. These are two wonderful goals from Blackburn, and the team definitely deserves the win," stated Arnett Gardens coach Jerome Waite.

The result has left Reno coach Michael Graham struggling for words, as he was clearly upset.

"This was a game we should have won, but for the lack of concentration in the second half," Graham said.

"After scoring first, we were looking to get all three points but we faltered and they scored an unfortunate goal," he said.
