Humble Lion are the kings of the pack, as they have taken over sole leadership of the Red Stripe Premier League standings following a 2-0 victory over Cavalier in their encounter on Sunday at Stadium East.
The Geoffrey Maxwell-coached team got their goals courtesy of strikes from Jermaine Christian (38th) and Denzil Watson (79th).
Humble Lion bounced back from last week's defeat to Waterhouse to lead the 12-team standings with nine points after four rounds of games.
"It was an exceptional display," a delighted Maxwell said. "Total congratulations to the players, we dominated the game."
Cavalier which were losing consecutive games, slipped one place in the standings to fifth, with six points.
"It must be a concern to lose two games in a row, however, we have time to recover and make the top four," Cavalier's coach, David Laylor, said.
Defending champions, Harbour View, notched their first victory of the season, as a 58th minute goal by Bryan Brown was enough to see them pass the previously unbeaten Rivoli 1-0 at Prison Oval.
The victory lifted the Stars of the East off the foot of the standings, as they moved up to 11th on three points.
The newly promoted Rivoli dropped two places to ninth on five points.
Montego Bay United squandered a two-goal advantage against Boys' Town, as they had to settle for a 2-2 draw at Collie Smith Drive.
Montego Bay United got their goals by way of strikes from Dino Williams (45th) and Lacon Brissett (58th). Boys' Town fought back through goals from Nicholas McMorris (60th) and Benjamin (89th).
The team from the Second City lies second courtesy of a superior goal difference with seven points while the Red Brigade is eighth with five points.
The league's other promoted team, August Town, maintained their unbeaten record after playing to a 0-0 draw with third place Waterhouse (seven) at the Drewsland Stadium. This was August Town's third draw, as they occupy fourth on six points.
An open minute goal by Arnett Garden's captain, Kirk Ramsey, propelled them to their first victory of the season, as they defeated Sporting Central Academy 4-1 at the Anthony Spaulding Complex.
Arnett's other scorers were Newton Sterling (6th and 82nd) and Fabian Reid (61st).
Tenth-place Sporting (three) consolation was scored by Gregory Lewis (63rd).
Arnett were the biggest movers of the round, as they jumped five places to sixth with five points.
At press time, bottom-placed team Portmore United was hunting their first point of the season, as they hosted the unbeaten Tivoli Gardens which was seventh on five points at Ferdie Neita Park. The result of the late game will likely alter the points standing.
