MONTEGO BAY, St James — It's all level between Melbourne Mind Game and Lilliput Rovers after the first leg of the St James Football Association Sandals/ATL Senior League following a 1-1 scoreline at the UDC field on Tuesday.

Former Violet Kickers teammates Jermie Bucknor of Lilliput Rovers and Norman Foster of Melbourne Mind Games scored for their teams, as both go into the return leg next week Tuesday with everything to play for.

The other semi-final tie will be played tomorrow between Somerton FC and Heights FC when they meet at the UDC field starting at 3:30 pm.

Melbourne Mind Game topped the points standing with 22 points and also scored the most goals — 21. They were just ahead of Somerton FC, who had 19 points and scored 19 goals. Both teams conceded just four goals — tied for the best defensive record.

On Tuesday, Bucknor gave Lilliput Rovers the lead when he scored in the 17th minute, but the veteran Foster drew Melbourne Mind Game level in the 70th minute.
