Ten-man Har­bour View FC held lead­ers, the Uni­ver­sity of the West Indies, to a 1-1 draw on match-day nine in the Red Stripe Pre­mier League (RSPL) yes­ter­day at the UWI Bowl in Mona.

UWI, who pre­vi­ously were on a five-game win streak, fought back from a goal down to claim a point. Ranique Muir put Har­bour View ahead when he beat UWI’s goal­keeper Amal Knight in the fifth minute.

The home team can­celled that strike when their cap­tain Rochane Smith’s cor­ner kick was met by Deno Schaffe, who headed past Har­bour View’s cus­to­dian Joel John­son in the 50th minute.

Har­bour View was re­duced to 10 play­ers when Ni­cholas Beck­ett re­ceived a red card from ref­eree Odette Hamil­ton for a dan­ger­ous chal­lenge on UWI’s Ke­mar Flem­mings in the 47th minute.

It was an evenly con­tested game as Har­bour View had the bet­ter of pos­ses­sion in the first half, while UWI came into their own dur­ing the sec­ond half. Both teams cre­ated many op­por­tu­ni­ties, how­ever, it was a fair re­sult in the end.

UWI main­tained pole po­si­tion when they moved to 20 points in the 12-team stand­ings, while Har­bour View re­mained in 11th po­si­tion on six points.

In an­other re­sult, Hum­ble Lion pushed to 17 points fol­low­ing a 2-1 win against Ja­malco in the Claren­don derby at the Wem­b­ley Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence. Ja­malco, who pre­vi­ously led the ta­ble, stayed on 10 points in sev­enth po­si­tion.
