IRWIN, St James — Manning’s School and Glenmuir High will contest next week’s final of the Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association rural area Under-14 football competition after beating Maldon High School and Vere Technical, respectively, on penalty kicks on Friday.

Manning’s School prevailed 4-3 on penalties in their game played during a constant drizzle at Irwin High in St James, after giving up a 2-1 half-time lead to draw 3-3 in regulation time.

Glenmuir High got by Vere Technical 4-2, also from the penalty spot, after they had played out a 1-1 draw in their semi-finals game contested at Foga Road in Clarendon.

The final has been set for St Elizabeth Technical on Thursday.

At Irwin, Manning’s School — who were led by two goals from Carlington Smith and one from Kajay Williams — were ahead 2-0 before Maldon pulled one back just before half-time.

Maldon High, who had two goals from Kenroy Thorpe and the other from Christopher Reid, came out more purposefully in the second half and scored twice to lead 3-2. But with less than five minutes to go Manning’s School salvaged a draw and went on to win on penalties.
