KINGSTON, Jamaica - Hydel High have been docked three points for using ineligible players in their opening Manning Cup encounter of the 2023 season against Kingston College (KC).

The Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) Disciplinary Committee made the ruling following an investigation into the matter, ISSA announced Tuesday.

It said the disciplinary committee found that Hydel exceeded the number of “quota players” in the match played on Tuesday, September 12, which they had won with a score of 4-0.

The ruling means Hydel will lose all three points gained and KC will be awarded the points with a score of 3-0.

The St Catherine-based school has also been placed on three years probation starting September 26, 2023, ISSA announced.
