The battle for the Red Stripe Premier League title continues today with Waterhouse hosting Arnett Gardens in the first leg of the second semi-final at Drewsland Stadium.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m.

The in-form Waterhouse team will be seeking its second title after topping the league section with 65 points.

They enter the semi-finals following a 5-0 whipping of Sporting Central on the final day of action in the preliminary round.

Arnett Gardens, who earned their semi-final spot by placing fourth in the league section, were beaten 2-1 by Boys' Town ahead of today’s contest.

The teams have met three times already this season during the preliminary stage.

On the three occasions that they have met, Waterhouse have come out on top twice, winning 1-0 and 3-1, while Arnett Gardens took the other 3-0.

Meanwhile, Montego Bay United came from two goals down last night to earn a 2-2 draw against defending champions Harbour View in the opening leg of the first semi-final.

The game, which was affected by a power outage, was played at the Harbour View Mini Stadium.

The return leg takes place on Sunday in Montego Bay.
