MAGGOTTY, St Elizabeth — Former champions and last season's beaten finalists St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) got off to a winning start in the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup competition after edging Maggotty, 1-0, in Zone G at Maggotty yesterday.

Khesanio Hall's first-half goal got coach Omar Wedderburn's stint off on a positive note as they maintained their unbeaten run against Maggotty.

Meanwhile, there were two hat-tricks yesterday. Oshane Powell led Holmwood Technical to a 5-2 win over Knox College and Kasheif Brown led Green Pond to a 3-victory against Maldon.

Powell, along with Collin Williams and Jeimel Muirhead, who got one goal each for the Dave Anderson-coached team, helped snap a 14-game winless run dating to 2009.

In another group game, Spalding beat Christiana, 3-1.

At Green Pond, Brown scored three times — in the 13th, 20th and 24th minutes — for their first-ever win over Maldon in their first clash since the 2008 season. Shane Haughton pulled one back in the second half for Maldon.

National Under-17 player Ramon Brown scored a double for Muschett who beat Hopewell High, 4-1, in Hopewell. Romaine Williams and Lawrence Stone got the other goals.

Twenty-nine more games are scheduled for today. Former champions Frome Technical, Munro College, Garvey Maceo High, Glenmuir High, and Vere Technical will be in action.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
