Big wins aplenty in Manning Cup

Manning Cup

WOLMER'S Boys' hold fast to their aim of winning the 2013 ISSA/LIME Manning Cup by overpowering Kingston Technical High School (KTHS) 6-0 at Stadium East yesterday.

The score was a repeat of the 6-0 drubbing KTHS received from Wolmer's when they last met on September 10 in the first round, and with hopes high of lifting this year's crown, there was no letting up in their goalscoring march.

The versatile Jordan James, who won the Class Three 400m at Boys' Champs, hit a three-timer with goals in the 45th, 59th and 74th minutes. A brace from Jaheel Hyde ninth and 10th, and another in minute 17 from Jason Greenland completes the carnage on a well-manicured field for constructive play.

Head Coach Ludlow Bernard said that the aim from the first whistle was to "put the game beyond the opponents before they could settle, and we did just that. We had expected the game to be close. We were not taking any undue risks, and went on the attack very early.

"But after we worked hard to score four goals in the first half-hour and, with so much time on our hands, the motivational factor came into play and in an attempt to keep the momentum and general intensity going, we introduced players who would not normally play, and that paid off, as we scored another two goals in the second half," he said.

In other Group C encounters, St Catherine edged Denham Town 2-1 and Clan Carthy and Papine

ended 2-2.

Meanwhile, Charlie Smith slammed Vauxhall 6-0, Camperdown defeated Donald Quarrie 5-0, and defending champions St George's College hammered Oberlin 8-1, while Bridgeport blanked Tivoli Gardens 6-0 in Group E, and Kingston College whipped Penwood 12-0 in Group F.
