Portmore United have jumped a spot up the Red Stripe Premier League standings after their 4-1 victory over Boys’ Town in their rescheduled game at the Barbican Field on Wednesday. It was 0-0 heading to the interval when Jovan East popped up to break the deadlock. Seven minutes into the second half, the lead widened with Jermie Lynch making it 2-0 for Portmore United.
But the ‘Red Brigade’ were rewarded with a 68th minute goal from Rafiek Thomas to cut the deficit. However, a 77th penalty from Lynch restored Portmore's two goal advantage. It stayed like that until a minute before full time when Portmore put the game to bed with Henrico Ricketts making it 4-1 as victory was completed.
Portmore united are now on 16 points, two behind leaders Arnett Gardens, while Boys’ Town remained in the red on 6 points in 11th position.
