Goals FLOW at Sabina

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

EXCELSIOR HIGH cruised into the FLOW Su­per Cup quar­ter-fi­nals, fol­low­ing a 5-0 vic­tory against Ocho Rios High at Sabina Park yes­ter­day.

The Moun­tain View Av­enue-based Excelsior were never trou­bled and dom­i­nated with goals by Ki­mani DeCom­bre in the fifth minute, Ca­dine Gra­ham (12th), Ryan Spence (29th), Chad McKen (55th) and sub­sti­tute Raewin Se­nior (87th).

With Ocho Rios hav­ing few shots to­wards goal, Excelsior’s goal­keeper, Ro­mario Palma, had lit­tle to do, and the mar­gin of vic­tory could have been much greater.

Excelsior coach Shavar Thomas was sat­is­fied with his team’s over­all per­for­mance and the fact that the goals were scored by five dif­fer­ent play­ers.

“We have been lack­ing in fin­ish­ing, and to­day, the team spread the ball around with five dif­fer­ent goalscor­ers,” Thomas, nat­tily dressed in a sports blazer, said.

“The team does not rely on one striker as we have depth and can move play­ers around,” he added.

“At the end, I’m pretty sat­is­fied as we moved the ball around. We have a good group that can go deep in the com­pe­ti­tion,” Thomas pointed out.

“I ex­pected a bet­ter fight from Ocho Rios, but my team did well to­day,” he shared.

Ocho Rios coach Car­ling­ton Dodd said he was proud of his young team.

“We are proud of the play­ers. We wanted to fight, but Excelsior are a bet­ter team. How­ever, we will come back,” Dodd said.
