STETHS blank Black River

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Paul Clarke Gleaner Writer

WESTERN BUREAU: ST ELIZ­A­BETH Tech­ni­cal High School (STETHS) for­ward, Jovoney Brown, net­ted his sev­enth goal in as many matches and Demar James fired home a brace as the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons slammed Black River High 3-0 in yes­ter­day’s In­ter-Sec­ondary Schools Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (ISSA)-FLOW daCosta Cup foot­ball match at Black River High.

Brown was on tar­get from the penalty spot in the ninth minute, while James scored in the 21st and 34th min­utes of a game thor­oughly dom­i­nated by the cham­pi­ons, who hardly needed to break a sweat in hand­ing Black River their sixth loss.

The win takes STETHS up to 15 points from seven matches, with La­covia High and Munro Col­lege bat­tling for the next au­to­matic qual­i­fy­ing spot. Black River will now be play­ing for pride.

The only bright spark for Black River was the Rene Hi­gu­ita-styled out­field play by their goal­keeper, Da­vian STETHS striker Jovoney Brown (left) is chal­lenged by Imani Kerr of Black River High dur­ing the ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup Zone E foot­ball match at Black River High School yes­ter­day.

Gayle, who looked more com­fort­able with the ball at his feet than stand­ing be­tween the sticks.

Gayle has now con­ceded 13 goals in all against STETHS

alone this sea­son and as a team, the Kirk Wil­liams-coached Black River has seen 34 goals hit the back of their net, while they have scored a mere four times so far.
