JC, Hy­del win big

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Marc Stamp Gleaner Writer

TWELVE GOALS split be­tween their teams left coaches Miguel Co­ley and Dono­van Duckie well sat­is­fied with their team’s heavy wins in yes­ter­day’s se­cond round ac­tion of the ISSA-FLOW Man­ning Cup com­pe­ti­tion.

In a Con­stant Spring Sports Com­plex dou­ble-header, Co­ley’s Ja­maica Col­lege (JC) brushed aside Den­ham Town by a 6-0 mar­gin with Duckie’s Hy­del out­fit storm­ing to sim­i­lar win over St Jago, leav­ing both win­ners shar­ing the lead atop the group with six points and a goal dif­fer­ence of plus six.

Ni­cholas Nel­son got things go­ing for Hy­del in the cur­tain raiser with a goal from the penalty spot with 22 min­utes on the clock with Cour­ton Wright (40th), an own goal from St Jago’s Je­lani Thomas (53rd) as well as strikes from sub­sti­tute Pak­ibi Far­quhar­son, Mowaine Mered­ith and Kevin Wright, who scored in a three minute burst from the 89th minute to the first minute of added time, com­plet­ing the rout.

NOT SUR­PRISED

Hy­del dom­i­nated play from the get-go, with St Jago prov­ing no match for their St Cather­ine neigh­bours in what was the third meet­ing for both teams. Hy­del had ear­lier won 1-0 and drew 0-0 dur­ing the pre­lim­i­nary stage.

“I’m not sur­prised by the heavy mar­gin of vic­tory to­day. Dur­ing the pre­lim­i­nary stage, we al­ways cre­ated chances, but (we were) just not scor­ing, and that is why we were not in the FLOW Su­per Cup com­pe­ti­tion,” Hy­del’s Jo­van Young (left) and St Jago’s Dwight Sharves tus­sle for pos­ses­sion of the ball dur­ing their ISSA-FLOW Man­ning Cup game at Con­stant Spring Sports Com­plex yes­ter­day. Hy­del won the game 6-0.

Duckie told The Gleaner. “It is im­por­tant to re­main fo­cused and con­tinue to work hard for a place in the semi-fi­nal.”

Glen Laing, head coach of St Jago said he is dis­ap­pointed, but his team is young.

“It was a dis­ap­point­ing re­sult for us, but the team is a young one. Our aim was to reach the se­cond round and we have done

that. We want to win at least one game in the group,” Laing added.

In the day’s se­cond game, JC, fully aware of Hy­del’s re­sult, started slow but came into their own and won com­fort­ably against Den ham Town

JC was led by a brace from cap­tain Oquin Robin­son, who got his goals in the 20th and 70th min­utes, with goals by

JC’s coach Miguel Co­ley said he was sat­is­fied with the re­sult and per­for­mance, which came on the heels of a 1-0 loss to Claren­don Col­lege in the FLOW Su­per Cup last Satur­day at Sabina Park.

“I am sat­is­fied to get back goals after the game on Satur­day. We were much bet­ter in front of goal to­day, so we are happy with the re­sult,” Co­ley said.

Co­ley is now look­ing for­ward to a cru­cial clash, with joint group leader Hy­del in the next game.

“Hy­del is a good team, so we are look­ing for­ward to that game next week. And, hope­fully we can get the win,” he added.
