The ISSA/FLOW Super Cup semi-final match between Jamaica College (JC) and Kingston College (KC) at Sabina Park on Saturday night almost reached apocalyptic proportions, with one controversial incident after another. The dramatic evening started when opposing players clashed on the KC bench over an off-the-ball incident, then again when both sets of players faced off in the KC goal after JC captain Maliek Howell was allegedly stomped by an opposing player while he was on the ground. And when it appeared the day could not get worse, it did. Jamaica College players, staff and fans waged a nasty protest when a late goal by Tyreek Magee was disallowed by referee Leon Brown in the closing stages of the contest, which had KC leading 2-1. The delightful free kick by Magee curled into the goal with no contact made with the ball, in what was deemed and clearly indicated by the referee to be an indirect free kick. The JC faithful thought they had found the equalising goal. KC went on to win 2-1 and will meet St Elizabeth Technical High in the final on Saturday.
