CROSS KEYS, Manchester — Three schools — Manchester High, Garvey Maceo High and William Knibb Memorial — moved to within a win of securing their places in the Inter-Zone round of the ISSA/Gatorade/Digicel daCosta Cup schoolboys' football competition after scoring good wins in return-round games yesterday.

Manchester High blanked Cross Keys High 3-0 to improve to 14 points in Zone F, retaking the lead from Bellefield High who were held 2-2 by last-placed BB Coke.

Delroy Miller scored his sixth goal of the season, while Kevaughn Isaacs and Kason Clarke got one each for Manchester High who led 2-0 at half time.

A win for Bellefield would have seen them join St Elizabeth Technical in the next round.

The prolific Ishamel Currie scored twice to lead Garvey Maceo High to a 5-0 win over Porus and moved to 19 points at the top of Zone M, three more than Glenmuir High who were 4-0 winners over Bustamante High. Denbigh High stayed in mathematical contention with a 3-0 win over Fogo Road.

William Knibb won their third straight game in Zone C, upsetting Spot Valley High 3-1 at Spot Valley to open a four-point lead with 14 points.

Larone Clarke in the second minute and Shadwayne Williams in the 45th scored from long range to give William Knibb a 2-0 first-half lead, while Jason Barrett got the other goal in the second half.

Mannings School leapt over Grange Hill and took a two-point lead in Zone D after beating Little London 4-1 to go to 14 points with goals from Melvin Blair, Kevin Daley, Jevon Braham and an own goal.

Grange Hill were held 0-0 by Petersfield who are still in contention on 10 points.

Meanwhile, two rescheduled games will be played this afternoon.

Two-time defending champions Rusea's will travel to Montego Bay to face Herbert Morrison in Zone B, while Holmwood Technical will host Christiana High at Kirkvine in Zone G.



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