KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Reigning champions Harbour View suffered a rare defeat in the 2013-2014 Red Stripe Premier League when they lost 2-1 away to former champions Portmore United in a late match last night at the Ferdie Neita Park.

The victory wasn’t enough to pull Portmore United out of the relegation zone as they are still second-from-the-bottom. They moved to 20 points the same as Boy’s Town who are placed higher courtesy of goal difference.

The defeat for leaders Harbour View allows second place Montego Bay United to pull within seven points after they battled to an away goalless draw against Sporting Central Academy at the Juici Patties Park in Clarendon.

Waterhouse maintained their spot in the table after battling to a goalless draw against Rivoli United at Drax Hall.

Meanwhile, Arnett Gardens scored a 2-1 away victory against Humble Lion at Effortville in Clarendon to improve to fourth place.

In other games, bottom place August Town and visitors Cavalier battled to a goalless draw at the UWI Bowl, while Tivoli Gardens beat Boys’ Town 2-1 at St Elizabeth Technical High School.
