CLARENDON, Jamaica — As expected, Sporting Central Academy advanced to the Flow Champions Cup quarter-final with a handsome 6-1 victory over lowly Black Stars at Juici Patties Park.
And, as the scoreline suggests, this was a comprehensive display from the hosts.
Despite fielding a much-changed side from the one that beat Harbour View Sunday, Sporting were always in control of the game -- even with their opponents failing to equalise from the penalty spot midway the first half.
Jamoly Powell, one of five players retained from Sunday's starting 11, was their most influential player on the day. The left-footed midfielder set up two and scored the other in Sporting's 3-0 half-time lead.
First, Powell set up Melford Simpson for an easy header on 11 minutes, before firing in a 38th-minute free-kick. Just one minute later, he provided another assist for Simpson, who was replaced at the break.
Simpson's replacement, Huggart Nugent, picked up from where his fellow centre-forward left off -- scoring a brace in the 57th and 60th minutes, before Richard Reid, another substitute, added a sixth.
Dwayne Brown scored Black Stars' consolation in time added.
