Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Shayne Fair­man Gleaner Writer

LED BY a su­perb An­drew Daley brace, Wolmer’s Boys cruised to the top of Group K in the ISSA-FLOW Man­ning Cup sec­ond round yes­ter­day with an easy 3-0 win over St Cather­ine High at the Span­ish Town Prison Oval.

The game was the sec­ond match of a dou­ble-header. In the day’s opener, St Ge­orge’s Col­lege came from be­hind to clip Haile Se­lassie 2-1.

Coach Vas­sell Reynolds of Wolmer’s wants more goals from his team.

“Over­all, I am pretty sat­is­fied, but there is some work to be done. I still think that even though we are scor­ing at an av­er­age of two goals per game, I still feel that we need to be a lit­tle bit more clin­i­cal,” he said.

“We are cre­at­ing the goalscor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and need to put more away as it’s go­ing to be im­por­tant go­ing for­ward,” he added. Al­phanso Gooden was also on tar­get for Wolmer’s yes­ter­day.

FIRST-HALF STRIKE

Mean­while, Haile Se­lassie’s Akeem Gran­di­son put them in the lead with a firsthalf strike in the open­ing game, but Alex Mar­shall lev­elled for St Ge­orge’s be­fore Akiki Jack­son scored the win­ner.

St Ge­orge’s as­sis­tant coach, Mar­cel Gayle said Haile Se­lassie pushed them all the way.

“In the first half, Se­lassie started bet­ter than us. They held their own and we came back in the sec­ond half and won the game,” he told The Gleaner.

“Men­tally we were up for the game. Phys­i­cally, we dug deep and found the per­for­mance to carry us over the line,” Gayle added.
