CORNWALL COLLEGE (CC)talisman Jourdaine Fletcher, who has sizzled in this year’s ISSA/FLOW Super Cup with seven goals under his name, has no issue with CC’s tag as favourites going into this year’s final against Wolmer’s Boys’ School at Sabina Park.
The forward has netted more than 20 goals so far this season in all competitions, and as far as to give everything to help his team to the title.
“I don’t know if I will score in the final. It depends on the game, but I want to give everything to help us win,” said Fletcher.
“I have a lot more goals to come and I want to go past 30 in the season, so there is more to come for me and I am 100 percent sure we can win trophies,” he added.
“(This) was my best game (against Clarendon College); I was waiting on this match for a while and I just executed. We are the original CC, and we will give 100 percent in the final and try to score and win it for my team,” he stressed.
“Coach ‘Tegat’ (Paul Davis), I respect him, but he and his team were hyping, so we had to put them in their place.
“They are going to come at us in the daCosta Cup again, but we are going to come harder, too. We are the original CC,” added the player. Western Bureau: THOUGH HARD hit by the untimely death of 17-year-old Spot Valley High School shooting guard Saymar Ramsay, the ISSA-run Western Conference High School Basketball Championship will go on, said Deon Williams, vice-president of the Western Basketball Association.
However, teams will observe a minute of silence before the start of each day’s play with players and officials to wear black armbands in a show of respect, stated Williams, who is also part of the Western Basketball Referee’s Group.
“The suspension of the league was brought up during talks since Saymar’s unfortunate passing, however, we think it’s fitting and right that we honour his memory by completing the season,” said Williams.
“With that said, we will be mandating that a minute of silence be observed before tipoff at each match for the rest of the season. In addition, players and officials will be wearing black armbands, as we show solidarity with his school and his family,” he noted.
Ramsay’s family, the basketball fraternity and the Spot Valley High School were plunged into mourning when he died at hospital of a suspected heartattack on Friday, a mere hour after contesting an Under19 basketball game against Cornwall College.
On Monday, he was remembered as an outstanding student whose willingness to help others was one of his best attribute.
It was the second death of a student athlete in just about a month. In October, St George’s College Manning Cup team captain Dominic James also died at hospital after collapsing on the field.
Their deaths have prompted the powerful Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) to announce mandatory medical screening for student athletes, beginning next year.
A pair of rescheduled matches are set for Thursday, with home team Herbert Morrison Technical taking on Holland High in the U-16 category, before Muschett High battle Herbert Morrison in the U-19 contest.
