Munro seek win to strengthen chances

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Paul Clarke Gleaner Writer

WESTERN BUREAU: THE 2016 In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (ISSA)-FLOW daCosta Cup school­boy foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion con­tin­ues to­day with 17 matches, in­clud­ing a Zone E fix­ture be­tween Munro Col­lege and Mag­gotty High at the Ap­ple­ton Sports Com­plex.

Munro (four points), fresh off their 1-0 vic­tory over the pre­vi­ously un­beaten La­covia High on Satur­day, will be hunt­ing a sec­ond straight win to move fur­ther up the stand­ings, with cham­pi­ons St El­iz­a­beth Tech­ni­cal High School (STETHS) idle.

The zone is led by STETHS (nine), fol­low­ing their 1-0 win on Satur­day over Mag­gotty. La­covia is sec­ond in the zone with six points, but they could be over­taken by a Munro team which ap­pears to have found a sense of re­newed con­fi­dence.

Mag­gotty have been strug­gling so far, af­ter fail­ing to se­cure a sin­gle point in two matches. They are des­per­ately in need of some­thing to spark their cam­paign, which blos­somed greatly last year.

How­ever, they are un­able to re­pro­duce the kind of re­sults that would have, no doubt, kept them rel­e­vant and in line for a place in the next round.

Mean­while, Peters­field (six), third in Zone D be­hind God­frey Ste­wart (nine), and Lit­tle Lon­don High (eight), could go joint first with a win over Grange Hill at Frome sports ground.

“We are still in a po­si­tion to push for­ward in the zone, which is prov­ing some­what more com­pet­i­tive than others thought,” said Peters­field High’s coach God­frey Drum­mond.

“Third in the zone is not where we want to be, so a vic­tory is what we are go­ing af­ter and we hope that we can do that against Grange Hill,” added Drum­mond.

Lit­tle Lon­don, oddly enough, is the only team in that zone yet to lose a match, but they are look­ing to be the spoil­ers in that zone this year un­der Coach Jef­fery Reece’s tute­lage.
