ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica - Glenmuir High won a record-equalling seventh ISSA Ben Francis Knockout title on Saturday after beating last season’s champions Edwin Allen High 2-0 in the final played at the St Elizabeth Technical Sports Complex in Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth.
It was Glenmuir’s first win in the KO in 13 years since 2009 when they last won, adding to titles won in 1993, 1994, 1999, 2004 and 2005. They join Cornwall College on seven liens.
Orane Watson gave Glenmuir High the lead from the penalty spot in the first half and David Reid added the second as the Andrew Peart coached team went through the competition without conceding a goal.
It was the first goals conceded by Edwin Allen who were seeking to join Glenmuir High, Cornwall College and St Elizabeth Technical as teams that had retained the title.
