Last season's beaten finalists Waterhouse registered a 2-1 victory against Tivoli Gardens in a rescheduled Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) game, on Thursday, at the Drewsland Stadium to remain two points behind surprise leader Molynes United.

Waterhouse had to come from behind for the victory after Barrington Pryce handed the visitors a 28th-minute lead.

Keithy Simpson levelled the scores from the penalty spot in the 66th minute and Kenroy Howell secured the winning goal for Waterhouse in the 90th minute. 

The victory was the second for Waterhouse inside five days following a 2-0 road win against the University of the West Indies (UWI) FC at the weekend.

With the victory, second-place Waterhouse moved to 16 points from six games to remain one of two unbeaten teams in the competition.

Newcomers Molynes United are leading the 12-team table with maximum 18 points.

Harbour View remain in third place after beating Dunbeholden 1-0 in the Monday night game at the Harbour View Stadium. Humble Lion (nine points) and Arnett Gardens (eight points) complete the top five.
