MANDEVILLE, Manchester — Garvey Maceo High will today seek an unprecedented junior football double when they contest both finals of the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Rural Area Under-14 and Under-16 competitions against Spalding High and Muschett High, respectively, at Manchester High with the first game set to start at 1:45 pm.

Garvey Maceo, last season's beaten finalists in the Under-14 competition, avenged their only loss this season by beating Vere Technical 4-0 in one semi-final on Monday and will seek to avenge another in the Under-16 final.

Muschett High beat Garvey Maceo 2-0 in their quarter-final game played in Wakefield, Trelawny, and will have a psychological edge going into today's game.

In the semi-finals, Garvey Maceo High beat Vere Technical 4-0 in the Under-14 and then edged St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) 2-1 in the Under-16.

Spalding High hammered Munro College 7-0 in their Under-14 semi-finals at Juici Field, while Muschett High got by Bog Walk High 2-1 in the Under-16 encounter.

On Monday, Javar McKenzie scored a double for Garvey Maceo in the Under-14 game, with Cleo Clarke scoring his 12th of the season and Christopher Mundle getting the other.

Gregory Cousins also got a brace for Garvey Maceo in the Under-16 game as they eliminated former champions STETHS.

Deandre Johnson scored a hat-trick for Spalding High and took his tally of goals to 25 in their runaway win over Munro College, while Christopher Brown scored both goals for Muschett High who will seek to become the first school from Trelawny to win a title in ISSA schoolboy football.
