Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Robert Bai­ley/Gleaner Writer

HAV­ING BEEN beaten 2-1 by Ja­maica Col­lege (JC) in the quar­ter­fi­nals of ISSA/Dig­i­cel Man­ning Cup, Devon An­der­son, head coach of Holy Trin­ity, said his team is very de­ter­mined to turn the ta­bles on his op­po­nents when both teams clash in the quar­ter-fi­nals of Cham­pi­ons Cup com­pe­ti­tion.

The match will be played at the Sta­dium East field start­ing at 4:00 p.m. In the sec­ond match of the dou­ble-header, St Ge­orge’s Col­lege will take on St An­drew Tech­ni­cal High School at 6:00 p.m.

Holy Trin­ity were also beaten 2-0 by JC in the 2014 fi­nal and last year’s semi-fi­nals and ac­cord­ing to An­der­son, those de­feats are still fresh in his mind and so they are ready to put on a good show­ing this af­ter­noon.

”We are look­ing for­ward to a very com­pet­i­tive game be­cause we know what we have to do and we are go­ing out there with a plan to do that,” said An­der­son.”It is a door-die sit­u­a­tion and so JC is com­ing


How­ever, JC’s coach An­drew Peart, said al­though his team is pumped up for today’s clash but he is ex­pect­ing a tough en­counter from his op­po­nents.

”It is go­ing to be a tough game be­cause they are out of Man­ning Cup and so their sole fo­cus is on the Cham­pi­ons Cup, and we just have to be ready to face this chal­lenge,” said Peart.

”We have been steadily im­prov­ing and our last game on Satur­day was a re­sult of that, and that game has cer­tainly given the team a lot of con­fi­dence go­ing into this game,” he said.The Dark Blues will be look­ing to key play­ers Shaniel Thomas, Nor­man Camp­bell, Ta­jay Grant and Isaac Scott to lead them to vic­tory.
