Three former champions stay perfect in D’Cup

HANOVER, Jamaica— Three former winners -- Frome Technical, Clarendon College and Glenmuir High -- were among four teams that extended their perfect win records in Monday's ISSA daCosta Cup football schedule.

The four schools including Cedric Titus made big strides towards a spot in the second round of the competition as the competition picks up intensity.

Frome Technical turned back Green Island High 5-1 in their rescheduled Zone B game played in Green Island as the home team missed a penalty.

Ackeem Kangol scored twice for Frome Technical as Stevaughn Spence got his eighth goal of the season while Dwayne Watt and Andre Reid got the other goals.

It was the first time this season that Frome conceded a goal.

Devonti Hodges with two goals and Christopher Hull, Malachi Douglas and Marques Reid got one each as Clarendon College ran out 5-0 winners over Thompson Town in their Zone H game, racing to 12 points, five more than second place Edwin Allen.

Lennon High beat Kellits High 6-1, their second win of the season and moved to a point behind Edwin Allen, both from four games played.

Cedric Titus took over the lead in Zone C with their fourth win, beating Muschett High 5-0 and improved to 12 points, Christopher Walters, Jazzoy Blagrove, Kemari Gordon, Roshawn Small and Kerron Eccleston all getting on the score sheet for the winners.

Glenuir High are the leaders in Zone M, beating Old Harbour High 2-0 and took over the lead on goal-difference over Central High and Old Harbour, all on nine points each.

Defending champions Garvey Maceo rolled past Foga Road 3-1 for back-to-back wins in Zone N while Kemps Hill High got their first victory, blanking Winston Jones High 3-0.

Goals seems to have dried up for Irwin High who were held 0-0 by Maldon High in their rescheduled Zone A game, the second time in three days that Irwin had failed to score after scoring 10 goals in their first four games.

The result took Maldon High to four games unbeaten while Hopewell High scored their first win since 2019 after beating Merlene Ottey High 1-0 in their Zone B game.

Zone F leaders Manchester High and Belair High, widened their lead after wins over Bellefield High and May Day High in their return round games on Monday.
