Griev­ing George’s crush Greater Port­more

Jamaica Gleaner - - YL - YOUTHLINK WRITER Pho­tog­ra­pher: La­mando Shep­herd

TRAGEDY RE­CENTLY struck St George’s Col­lege foot­ball team with the loss of their cap­tain, the tal­ented Do­minic James. Though the team was in the mid­dle of griev­ing, with just one week since his pass­ing, the com­pe­ti­tion had to go on. The boys from North Street all wore the num­ber seven on their sleeves and ded­i­cated the game against St Cather­ine-based Greater Port­more High School to their fallen player. Prior to the start of the game, both teams ob­served a mo­ment of si­lence to hon­our Do­minic in front of pa­trons who came from near and far to show their love. De­nese and De­nis James, Do­minic’s par­ents, were also present at the big­gest turnout at a Man­ning Cup match so far this sea­son. De­spite their grief, St George’s could not be stopped, and they beat Greater Port­more High four goals to one in the ISSA-FLOW Man­ning Cup Group A at Winch­ester Park on Fri­day, Septem­ber 23.
