MUNRO, St Elizabeth - Cornwall College extended their dominance over long-time rivals Munro College in their annual Jackson Shield pre-season competition, winning their seventh-straight hold with a 4-3 aggregate win over the two games played at Munro College on Saturday.

Munro College led the game between the daCosta Cup teams 2-1, when it was blown off prematurely, while the Cornwall College over-35 team won their game 3-1 to clinch the title.

The game was originally scheduled to be played in Montego Bay after being hosted by Munro last year, but a request was made to play the game in St Elizabeth as the players and coaching staff attended a funeral service for a past student held at the school's auditorium earlier in the morning.

Reno Edmonson and Ajay Stewart gave Munro College a 2-0 lead and Pagiel Brown pulled one back for Cornwall College in the second half before the game was called off after tempers flared. Cornwall College will start the defence of their title when they play Green Pond High in the opening ISSA/Flow daCosta Cup Zone A game at the Montego Bay Sports Complex on September 9, while Munro College, who last won the title 53 years ago in 1964, will open away to Lacovia on Monday, September 11, in Zone E.
