Western Bureau:

Little London High clipped Manning's High 2-1 in daCosta Cup Zone D action yesterday at the Little London playing field.

The winners remain second in the zone on 12 points behind Godfrey Stewart who lead with 15.

Dadrian Davis gave Little London the lead with a 39th minute penalty. They then doubled the lead just after the half-time break when Shane Ricketts hit one that was too powerful for the Mannings' goalkeeper Jemar Lue to handle.

But Manning's did save face with a goal in the 76th minute. Second-half substitute Romaine Mongal stole the ball in a tackle with Clifford Clarke, the Little London goalkeeper, to fire into the unguarded net.

Manning's had the chance to steal a point, but an 89th-minute penalty was missed by midfielder Jevaughn Facey.
