Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Paul Clarke Gleaner Writer

HOU­DINI’S MAGIC (Shane El­lis). WEST­ERN BU­REAU: COURT­NEY CHISHOLM capped a bril­liant dis­play for his side with an au­da­cious solo goal in the 90th minute to lift Spot Val­ley High to a 2-0 win over Muschett High in their ISSAFLOW daCosta Cup Zone C game yes­ter­day.

Chisholm’s strike, his fifth goal of the cam­paign, fol­lowed a 54th minute tap-in from sub­sti­tute An­dre Gard­ner, as the Gre­gory Palmer-coached Spot Val­ley moved to 11 points.

“We are still eye­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tion to the next round. It is prov­ing a lit­tle bit dif­fi­cult given what the team has been through re­cently with points de­ducted, but we are back with a vic­tory that sets us up mov­ing into our next game,” Palmer told The Gleaner.

FEW SPARKS

But in a game that should have pro­vided plenty of sparks, there was lit­tle of that ex­cept for the two goals and a few missed chances mainly for Spot Val­ley, as Chisholm, Reno Ed­mun­son and Gard­ner came close with long-range ef­forts.

The zone is still be­ing led by Cedric Ti­tus High (19 points), fol­low­ing their drawn fix­ture against Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal.

Mean­while, a bat­tle royal looms in Zone D with God­frey Ste­wart High and Lit­tle Lon­don High, both locked on 19 points, hop­ing to steal top hon­ours. And it was made no eas­ier yes­ter­day as both schools won their matches.

God­frey Ste­wart edged Man­ning’s 2-1, while Lit­tle Lon­don, eas­ily the com­pe­ti­tion’s most im­proved team, tagged Maud McLeod 2-0. Third-placed Peters­field ham­mered Grange Hill 5-0.

Zone A run­away lead­ers Corn­wall Col­lege, hav­ing al­ready sealed an In­ter-Zone spot, were in a no-non­sense mood, hit­ting the fad­ing Green Pond 5-0.
