daCosta Cup teams dominate
Cornwall College will face Clarendon College at 4 p.m. before Wolmer's Boys square off against St Elizabeth Technical at 6 p.m. in this weekend's ISSA-FLOW Super Cup semi-finals at Sabina Park.
For the first time since its inception, the ISSA-FLOW Super Cup reaches the semi-final round with rural teams manning the controls.
Last weekend, both venues (Sabina Park and the Montego Bay Sports Complex) were packed with vibrant football enthusiasts from near and far who turned out to not only support their teams but also enjoy the high-quality competition.
Clarendon College were the standout team, as they drubbed Excelsior High 7-1 in the Sabina Park curtain-raiser, while Wolmer's Boys will be the lone Manning Cup ranger in the semi-finals after edging Kingston College 1-0.
Meanwhile, over in Montego Bay, Cornwall College defeated Rusea's High 4-3 on penalties after playing to a 1-1 scoreline in full and extra time. Before that, St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) blanked Bridgeport 2-0. STETHS, the rural area kingpins, will be hoping to make it an all-daCosta Cup battle for the coveted $1-million grand prize.
Carlo Redwood, FLOW's vice-president of marketing and television, says he is pleased with the high levels of improvement shown by the daCosta Cup teams.
"It is tough. The daCosta Cup teams all look very strong and solid across the board. I am certainly excited to see the development of the daCosta Cup teams over the last two years into this third year and just to also see their overall strength versus the Manning Cup teams," said Redwood.
