Sajay Anderson's added time goal earned ten-man Mount Pleasant a 1-0 win over Harbour View in their Jamaica Premier League (JPL) match at the UWI-JFF Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence on Sunday.

The winners played with ten men for the entire second half. Kevaughn Isaacs was shown a second yellow card in first half added time.

However, Mount Pleasant reorganised their shape for the second half and remained competitive. Then, in time added, they got the breakthrough when the Harbour View defence failed to clear a cross in the penalty area and the lurking Anderson latched on to the loose ball and kicked under goalkeeper Amal Knight for the game's only goal.

The result gave Mount Pleasant maximum six points from two matches. Harbour View have one point from two games. Earlier the Tivoli Gardens and Humble Lion clash ended in a 2-2 draw. Andrew Vanzie and Shamari Dallas scored for Humble Lion while Warner Brown got both goals for Tivoli. Tivoli are on two points from two games while Humble Lion have a point from their two games.
