Maver­ley-Hugh­en­den, W’house in RSPL derby

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

LEAD­ERS UWI FC will try to ex­tend their ad­van­tage when they tackle Boys’ Town at UWI Bowl, Mona, in one of to­day’s resched­uled fix­tures in the Red Stripe Pre­mier League (RSPL) foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion.

Fol­low­ing their 1-0 win over pre­vi­ous lead­ers Hum­ble Lion on Sun­day, UWI now head the stand­ings with 16 points and will be look­ing for an­other win against se­cond-from­bot­tom Boys’ Town, who are des­per­ate to add to their four points.

One of the round’s big­gest clashes pits Wash­ing­ton Boule­vard neigh­bours Water­house and Maver­leyHugh­en­den, one of this sea­son’s new­com­ers, against each other. Water­house lost their first four matches then won back-to-back games to move to six points be­fore fall­ing to cham­pi­ons MoBay United last Sun­day. Maver­leyHugh­en­den have been stead­ier, with five draws to date, but form counts for lit­tle in matchups of these sorts of der­bies.

MoBay United (13) and Ar­nett Gar­dens (13), who have shared the league cham­pi­onship for the past three years, meet in the day’s big­gest clash. Both have made a de­cent start and reg­is­tered wins on Sun­day and will be en­gaged in a dog­fight. To­day’s matches
