Western Bureau:Reno earned their first win of the new Red Stripe Premier League season at Frome Sports Complex yesterday.

They came from a goal down to defeat Humble Lion 3-2.

The win puts them on four points, three ahead of Humble Lion.

"I am not happy with our defensive effort today; I thought we gave them too much space and time in front of goal," said Reno coach Patrick Graham.

"Apart from that, we played well and really did well to come back into the game after they took the lead," he added.

A Jermaine Christian penalty gave Humble Lion, a 31st-minute lead after Jashane Foster handled the ball.

Former Rivoli United front-man Devon Hodges, now striking for Humble Lion, did manage to head into the goal in the 36th minute, but it was waived away for offside.

Midfielder Afiba Chambers headed Reno level in the 38th minute, to round off a beautiful bit of play.

Craig Foster then scored his second goal in as many matches, his second of the season, when he fired low and hard into the bottom corner in the 54th minute, giving the home team the lead.

Humble Lion pulled even in the 66th minute, when Narado Brown tucked home from close range to make the score 2-2.

Jashane Foster, however, got the winner for Reno in the 81st minute.
