Lit­tle Lon­don stay un­beaten

Jamaica Gleaner - - TUESDAY SPORTS - Gleaner Writer

IN YES­TER­DAY’S daCosta Cup Zone D fix­ture be­tween Lit­tle Lon­don High (12 points) and Man­ning’s at the Lit­tle Lon­don play­ing field, the host came away with an edgy 2-1 vic­tory to re­main se­cond in the zone be­hind God­frey Ste­wart (15 points).

Over in Zone H, Thomp­son Town’s shock de­feat of the high-fly­ing Len­non High 1-0, tak­ing them up into se­cond place in the stand­ings be­hind pace­set­ters Claren­don Col­lege. Thomp­son Town now has 12 points, with Len­non third on 10 points.

A 39th minute penalty by Dadrian Davis gave Lit­tle Lon­don the lead, which was dou­bled just af­ter the half­time break, when Shane Ricketts hit one that was too pow­er­ful for the Man­ning’s goal­keeper Je­mar Lue to do any­thing about.

But Man­ning’s did save face

with a goal in the 76th minute. Se­cond half sub­sti­tute Ro­maine Mon­gal stole the ball in a tackle with Clif­ford Clarke, the Lit­tle Lon­don net­ten­der to fire into the un­guarded net.

Man­ning’s had the chance to steal a draw but their 89th minute penalty, taken by mid­fielder Je­vaughn Facey hit the up­right.

Mo­ments later the match was over and Lit­tle Lon­don proved they are one of the teams to watch, as coach Jef­frey Reece has them tick­ing like clock­work.

They re­main the only team in Zone D yet to lose a match.
