WITH seven crucial strikes for his unbeaten Kingston College team in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup football competition, main marksman, Rashawn McKinson, will be hoping to score or assist a goal in today's ISSA/Flow Walker Cup encounter against St Jago, and remain on course to double his goal tally to 15.

The group winners were unbeaten in the preliminary round with an impressive 22 points, while St Jago were the best second place team.

"We are trying to go as far as possible in the competition," the 16-year-old forward told STAR Sports.

In only McKinson's second Manning Cup season, he is looking to make a mark and drive fear into his opponents.

"Any team comes we will just get ready for it. No fear of any team, he said, while noting that he's very motivated.

"I know that I am one of the main players in the side so I just have to keep on working hard and go out there and do my best. We play some very good teams my performance is on and off sometimes but I will just keep on working and working," he added.

The forward is on a good run, providing assists and scoring goals to lead a KC team which some argue has not been totally efficient and effective with their finishing in front of goal.

Richard Byfield is next in their goal scorers with four.

"We have been performing great so far and giving thanks for the victories. We have been staying focused, staying calm and getting ready for the next round," said McKinson, who will need to lead from front for his team against a balanced and potent St Jago team which only lost and drew once in the preliminary round.
