Craig Foster turned on the style in scoring a brace, as Reno FC rallied from an early goal down to break Bamboo FC's heart, 2-1, at Frome Sports Complex in Western Confederation Super League Action on Sunday, to strengthen their claims for a spot in the mid-season final.

The Jamaica Under-20 striker restored parity after watching Bamboo grab a surprise lead when a defender turned the ball into his own goal in the 12th minute. Foster first scored in the 14th minute, then returned to net the winner in the 80th, as Reno rebounded from defeat to Norwood Strikers last time out and remain atop the standings in their zone with 12 points.

Bamboo (seven) remain third five points off the lead and three adrift second-place Tomorrow's People, who went on a 5-0 scoring binge against Norwood Strikers. Jermaine Cooper scored a brace in his side's big win, finding the net in the 85th and 89th, to add to goals from Omar Christie, Christopher Dyer and Davell Cornwall.

Meanwhile, Granville enjoyed a good day, securing their first win of the season by stopping Holland United 2-1 on goals from Tennison Jarrett (63rd) and Sevon Afflick in the 76th. Romane Lewis scored the lone Holland goal in the 80th. Courtesy of the win, Granville are now level on points with Norwood (four), while Holland remain fourth.

In other matches on Sunday, Zone One trendsetters Village United were made to toil in a come-from-behind draw with Catherine Hall in a top-of-the-table clash, to stay one point ahead on 10 points. Catherine Hall are next on nine.

Former Confed champions Wadadah sit third on eight points after defeating the struggling Petersfield FC 3-1.

Logwood stopped Harmony, which ended with 10 men, 1-0, with Thovian Anderson getting the winner in the 83rd minute.
