WHITEHOUSE, Westmoreland — Defending champions Wadadah FC missed a chance of joining Faulkland FC in the lead of the Jamaica Football Federation Western Confederation Charley's JB Rum Super League after being held 1-1 by Sandals South Coast at Crocs Lawn in Whitehouse, Westmoreland on Saturday.

Wadadah FC, who are also the mid-season champions, were hoping to rebound from their loss to Faulkland FC in the previous round, earned a point from a last-minute penalty conversion and inched up to 28 points, two behind the leaders but five ahead of third-placed Falmouth United, who have a game in hand.

Both goals in the game came from the penalty spot as Delroy Davis gave Sandals South Coast the lead in the 70th minute when he scored his spot kick.

Hunter scored in his third-straight game when he converted a 90th-minute penalty kick to salvage a point for Wadadah FC, who have managed one goal in their last three games.

Lucea United scored their biggest win of the season, blanking Reggae Youths 5-0 at Rusea's High to confirm the St James club's relegation at the end of the season.

Andre Walcott scored a brace for Lucea United who led 1-0 at half-time then scored four times in the final 15 minutes of the game, as Reggae Youths capitulated.

Reggae Youths, mid-season finalists in each of the last two Super Leagues, join fellow St James club Somerton FC as the teams that have confirmed their relegation already.

With FC Reno being relegated from the Red Stripe Premier League, at least five teams will be relegated from the Super League at the end of the season.

Walcott gave Lucea United the lead in the 39th minute but they had to wait until the 75th minute when Lexon Samuels added a second.

The third goal came in the 78th minute when Demar Doeman scored his third of the season. Walcott added his second in the 81st minute, while Tyrique Clarke scored number five in the 86th minute.

Former champions Granville United came from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Grand Palladium at the Granville Community Centre.

Tremaine Perry scored in the 21st minute and Imron Brown in the 23rd to give Grand Palladium a flying start, but Granville United turned things around in the second half with goals from Andrew Allen in the 58th minute and David Gillard in the 72nd minute.
