MANDEVILLE, Manchester — Defending champions Clarendon College, former winners Dinthill Technical, and first-time quarter-finalists McGrath High all maintained their 100 per cent win records in the second round of the ISSA/ Wata daCosta Cup football competition after good wins yesterday.

Two players scored braces for Clarendon College as they swamped Cedric Titus His 8-0 in Group One, Dinthill Technical kept a clean sheet for their fifth-straight game with a 2-0 win over Petersfield High in Group Three and McGrath High edged BB Coke 1-0 in Group Four as they all raced to six points to book spots in the first round of the ISSA Champions Cup Knock-out.

Meanwhile, Group Two was thrown wide open after Manchester High beat 10-man Cornwall College 1-0 at STETHS and Garvey Maceo beat Maggotty High 2-0.

At Manchester High, Roderick Granville and Richard King both grabbed braces for Clarendon College who raced past hapless Cedric Titus 8-0 as Omar Reid, Kaheim Rose, Sheldon Smart and Jaland Larmond all got one goal each as the champions had their biggest win of the season.

Karim Bryan grabbed a double for Dinthill Technical as they got by Petersfield High in the first game of a double-header at STETHS Sports Complex to take his tally in the second round to five goals.

McGrath High, who were getting to the quarter-finals for the first time, edged BB Coke 1-0, thanks to a goal from Jevaughn Reid.

In the second game at STETHS, a late penalty from Dane Golding gave Manchester High a win over Cornwall College to take over the lead with four points as the losers slipped to third on goal difference behind Garvey Maceo High.

Cornwall College ended the game with 10 players after Solano Birch was sent off midway the second half after getting his second yellow card.

Marvin Williams and Kimani Sylvera scored for Garvey Maceo.

At the Collin Miller Sports Complex in Lucea, second-half substitute Abijah Wallace scored twice as Manning's School came back from two goals down to earn an exciting 2-2 draw with Anchovy High.

Renaldo Grant and Sansay Hutchinson had given Anchovy the lead and they looked set to win back-to-back games until Wallace scored from two dead ball situations.

Former winners St Elizabeth Technical are all but out of the daCosta Cup after they were ambushed 3-1 by Happy Grove at Drax Hall and are at the bottom of Group Four on one point after two games.

Frome Technical were brought back to earth after they were held 0-0 by Port Antonio High in the second game at Drax Hall after hitting five goals past Petersfield High on Wednesday.
