The Jamaica Independent Schools Association (JISA) Henriques Cup knockout football competition continued yesterday with a number of familiar names progressing to the quarter-final stage and kept alive hopes of double success this season.
Alberga Cup semi-finalists Lannaman's, Emmanuel, Mona, and Sts Peter and Paul will be joined in the final eight by Hillel Academy, Liberty Academy, St Hugh's, and Belair.
Lannaman's registered the biggest win of the day with a 6-0 victory over Glenmuir at Buttercup Park, which also hosted Mona's comfortable 5-1 triumph over Vaz.
Emmanuel were untroubled in their 4-1 win over Morris Knibb, while Sts Peter and Paul got the better of Wolmer's 2-0.
Hillel Academy were comfortable in their 3-1 victory over Glowell and St Hugh's did enough to stop Fairfield 3-1 in their contest. Belair also bettered Ardenne by a 3-1 margin while Liberty were made to sweat in their 3-2 penalty shootout victory over El Instituto after both teams had played out a 1-1 scoreline in regulation time.
In Saturday's quarter-final round, Lannaman's and Sts Peter and Paul will face off in what is expected to be an eagerly contested match, while Hillel will come up against Mona in their showdown.
Liberty will play Emmanuel, who defeated them 4-0 earlier this season in the Alberga Cup, while St Hugh's will come up against Belair in the other last-eight encounter.
