KC vs Wolmer’s is the Su­per clash

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE - SHAYNE FAIRMAN STAR Writer

It’s quar­ter-fi­nals day in the third an­nual ISSA-FLOW Su­per Cup. Wolmer’s Boys ver­sus Kingston Col­lege, the fea­ture game be­gin­ning at 7 p.m at Sabina Park is the big match of the day.

It’s a match where pride and brag­ging rights will be at stake. KC knocked their He­roes Cir­cle­based ri­vals out of the Walker Cup and the ma­roon and gold­clad Wolmer’s are com­ing for re­venge.

Vas­sell Reynolds, the Wolmer’s coach, says his charges will line up full of con­fi­dence and ‘ready to beat’ a highly touted Kingston Col­lege team.

“I think our FLOW Su­per Cup chances are as good as any other team. I am very con­fi­dent that we can chal­lenge them. I didn’t think that we had our best game against them in the Walker Cup, and we still tied 22 so I think if we have an im­proved game from that per­for­mance we can come out with a very pos­i­tive re­sult,” said Reynolds.

Wolmer’s are hunt­ing the Su­per Cup, Man­ning Cup, and the Olivier Shield, while un­beaten KC still have a chance of win­ning four ti­tles.

Ac­cord­ing to Reynolds, his team is fit and will not be al­low­ing KC much space to play.

“I think we have to dic­tate the game for long pe­ri­ods. We gave KC too much room and space to play in the Walker Cup.

Mean­while, the ‘Pur­ples’ coach, Lud­low Bernard, is ex­pect­ing Wolmer’s to throw ev­ery­thing at his team.

“It’s will be a very big game. We know they will be com­ing for some mea­sure of re­venge,” he pointed out.

Bernard’s charges are yet to be beaten and most KC fans ex­pect to lift not only the FLOW Su­per Cup but the Man­ning Cup, Walker Cup, and ul­ti­mately the Olivier Shield, the sym­bol of al­lis­land supremacy in lo­cal school­boy foot­ball.

“We knocked Wolmer’s out of the Walker Cup in a penalty shoot-out and we have pre­pared men­tally and phys­i­cally for an­other tough chal­lenge from Wolmer’s. This is the Su­per Cup so spec­ta­tors are ex­cited,” added Bernard.
