Spalding, STETHS eye D'Cup Inter-zone
SPALDING, Manchester — Unbeaten teams Spalding High and St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) could move to within a point of the Inter-Zone round of the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup competition with wins today.
Both have won their first six games and another win could see them at least move to within a point of ensuring qualification to the next round with several games still to be played.
Spalding will face second-placed Holmwood Technical at home in Zone G after beating them 2-0 in the first round and anything but a win for Christiana against Alston would see them advancing with three games still to be played.
STETHS had beaten Balaclava High, 10-0, in the first-round Zone E game and another big margin is expected today.
Two-time defending champion Rusea's High and Frome Technical will, meanwhile, continue their tussle for honours in Zone B when they take on Herbert Morrison and Cambridge, respectively. Frome lead with 12 points from five games, followed by Rusea's on 10 from four.
Meanwhile, Okeem Dormer and Devroy Pinnock scored two goals each as Cedric Titus spanked Ocho Rios, 5-0, in a rescheduled Zone I game at Drax Hall yesterday to avenge their first-round loss.
With the win, Cedric Titus improved to 13 points and the top of the tables, three more than York Castle, who blanked Albert Town, 3-0, to jump three places into second to 10 points, edging Marcus Garvey on goal difference.
Fabian Murray scored twice and Kirk Haughton once for York Castle. In the other game, Brown's Town High and Marcus Garvey Technical drew 0-0.
