Classy Wolmer's blank George's
Former ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup champions Wolmer's Boys outclassed St George's College 2-0 at the Constant Spring Sports Complex, yesterday, putting them in pole position for the semi-final Group K spot.
Mickel Graham sent Wolmer's ahead in the 45th minute turning on a pass and hitting home a low shot past goalkeeper John Wilson.
The dangerous Wolmer's attacking player, Alphanso Gooden, broke away and dribbled past his St George's markers and struck a powerful shot which rebounded out to Yonnick Elliot who had an easy tap in five minute after the half-time break.
Wolmer's lead the group with six points courtesy of wins over George's and St Catherine High, respectively. They now need only a draw against Haile Selassie in their remaining game to cement a last four spot.
Wolmer's goalkeeper Shamar Jamison was brilliant. He produced a number of big saves to deny St George's. The shot stopper led Wolmer's to yet another clean sheet and he got good support from central defender Jahwani Hinds, who marshalled an organised Wolmer's back line.
The 'light blues' had their fair share of chances, most falling to the lively Akeem Robotham who was one of the St George's standout players, but he just couldn't find the net.
According to Wolmer's coach, Vassell Reynolds the difference between this team and last year's the firepower up front.
"This year, we are doing well at both ends and one of the good thing is apart from Alphanso Gooden and Rivaldo English we have other people scoring," Vassell said.
St George's coach Neville 'Bertis' Bell said he was disappointed with the result, calling it almost impossible to get to the semi-final.
A waterlogged field forced the postponement of the scheduled first game between Haile Selassie High and St Catherine High.
