6-0 wins for JC, Hydel
Despite hammering Denham Town High 6-0, defending ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup champions Jamaica College (JC) had to settle for joint leadership of Group I with Hydel High who plundered St Jago High by a similar score in second round action, at the Constant Spring Complex, yesterday.
Both schools will meet next week, in what will be expected to be a mega-clash.
The Ferry-based Hydel kicked off the day's double-header at 1 p.m. and took the lead with a 22nd minute penalty from Nicholas Nelson.
The lead was doubled by Courton Wright inside 40 minutes as the winners went to the break with a 2-0 lead.
Hydel's third was a 53rd minute own goal while Pakidi Farquharson netted in the 89th, Mowaine Meredith (90th) and Kevin Wright finished off the scoring in stoppage time, 90 plus three.
Meanwhile in the second game, JC's captain Oquin Robinson scored a brace via a 20th minute penalty and 70th minute strike.
The other scorers were Norman Campbell in the 23rd, Ronaldo Brown who added a clever solo strike in stoppage time of first half (45+1), Duhaney Williams in the 65th and Orlando Brown, formerly of Denham Town who closed out the scoring in the 78th.
JC looked the more clinical yesterday finishing off almost all their chances while dominating possession. Hydel were guilty of being wasteful in front of goal and saw individual players go for glory, instead of assisting team mates to score.
Hydel coach Donovan Duckie while praising the win is expecting a tough JC game.
"I've seen them before and I can tell you that Jamaica College are tough and a class team. We, however, have to believe in what we are doing, and the project at Hydel," Duckie pointed out.
JC's Miguel Coley said it was important to win after their FLOW Super Cup last weekend.
Looking ahead to the clash against Hydel, Coley said: "Hydel are a good team and hopefully we can get the win."
